Dial in yourself a nice and main rythm tone on the high gain channel of the jcm900.
Now, if you want a solo boost, you can achieve it by many ways, overdrives, clean boosts, EQs etc.
Id recommend you an EQ in the loop fx or whatever you wish to own really..
Mxr noise gate works really well if its what you need/want as a noise gate. I got one.
ISP decimator is a noise suppressor, works really well again if thats what you need/want, got also one.
For pedal essentials, playing any kind of metal, id start with a noise gate, the mxr. Then id say an overdrive would come second, again mxr then a noise suppressor, the isp, then delays/eqs/fxs/clean boosts/buffers.
Usully, you cant go wrong with mxr pedals.
If you have any questions
this is funny because its true. its funny AND true.
i came here to post that actually. the rest of the quoted post is pretty good info too.
