Imo, you should never buy cheap gear and upgrade slowly. You lose too much money that way. Standards are standards for reasons, same thing for all the rest of the 95% of the garbage on the market in any busyness of the economy. Just pay once for a good over drive, maxon 808 mxr gt od way huge, 1 compressor, keeley, t rex, name it etc etc. Buy good gear used once, save money, you haz the best toanz.

I never sold any of my pedals or accesories in 6 years of playing. Went through like 7 high end heads tho.

Great deals with : encasedmetal, jefffrommtl, coop.

I'd certainly agree with that, buying cheap is false economy.

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.

Many cant live withiout their volume pedals anymore that can be used as effects(violin, dynamics), mute switch, or noise reducer, gain reducer etc But I dont own one so I coulnt recommend it but surely a sure bet here! Ernie ball Jr to not name it.

I think the wylde overdrive might eventually replace the metalcore pedal.

Get the mxr GT-OD. It is a maxon 808 copy with a switch inside to get the Zack wylde OD.

2 ods in 1 pedal.

I have a JCM 900 100W head with an MXR 10 band eq in the loop for tone shaping and a Maxon OD808 in front to tighten up and add a little gain and im pretty happy with the tone. Add a delay pedal to help spice up the solos as mentioned earlier and you should be good to go.

Oh yeah and a noise gate !

Delay and chorus have come up a lot in this thread. I've only ever used a delay effect ever once. It's sounding like i should be a bit more adventurous with that sort of effect. What's the general opinion on phase? I've demo'd a chorus pedal and i liked it, under an overdrive it sounds really atmospheric and ethereal. I've got songwriting ideas floating around for putting acoustic sections in the middle of heavy riffing so an acoustic simulator would be cool aswell.

Necrobump, because the Digitech Hardwire HT-6 Polyphonic Tuner is essential and FANTASTIC. I picked it up for a show where i didn't want to bring my big ass pedal board, and it's the best tuner i've ever used. The polyphonic function works great, and it handles weird tunings well too. Also, i love the strobe function, really lets you get a perfect tune. My Boss tuner is now my bass tuner.

Best tuner EVAR!!!

I'm just dragging the thread back out of its grave.

My girlfriend bought me the Zakk Wylde OD for my birthday, so the metalcore has been retired to my old gear bag. Its definitely a clearer sound, there's a hell of a lot less unwanted sound and feedback. Downside is that i feel a bit exposed, i've got nothing to hide behind. There doesn't seem to be as much sustain either.

I think this could be rectified with a good delay. I think the mxr carbon copy will fit with the other two just nicely, so that's on the list too now.

I second this. my NS-2 in front of my OD808 let too much noise through.

Anyway I see you got the Zakk Wylde, I've been wanting to try one. Congrats on ditching the Boss pedal.

So now that you upgraded the overdrive you can trade or sell the boss pedal and other old or unwanted gear and put it towards a noise gate/ suppressor. From there onwards you will be in the business.
