which piece of line 6 kit do you have? what kind of pedal do you need? just saying that you need a pedal isn't really helping - there are hundreds of different effects available.

i have the 75 WATT 2x12 Spider II Amp from Line 6. i like a lot of distortion, and i mainly use distortion that sounds good with and without muting. my line 6 is good for that. but i also like to have other effects like flanger or echo or some weird effects, which is why i would like a pedal with multi-effects. but any good quality pedal is what im lookin for

it looks as though you want a good multi effects pedal. bear in mind, there's a few different design-philosophies when it comes to gear setups...here are your options.

1) single, compact pedals wired in one way or another to form a board. have a look at the picture i've attatched, it's omar from mars volta/atdi's board, and he uses this design. the benefits of this setup is that it offers the ultimate in tweak-ability, but it is also the costliest as you need to buy each indivual effect and the materials to connect them. this design is very good for experimenting.

2) multi-effects processors...these tend to be getting better and better, and they are definately the most cost effective solution. you should go with this one. on the higher end of the price range is something like the line 6 pod xt live (which i hear is very good), or even the boss gt-8. if you're looking for something more moderate, have a look at some of boss' other models, or the textbook budget brand is zoom.

3) rack effects. popular in studios. can be used live, but are typically expensive. high quality though.


i'd go for the multi effects if i were you. that being said, however, i'm more a first option person, as do experimental stuff quite a bit.

I go for the individual pedals as well just cause i like the extent of adjusment availabe to each individual pedal however i do agree it is a much more expensive route.

my friend has the line 6 pod xt and i have used it before and highly recommend it. it takes a while to program it all so that you can have all the settings you like, but the nice thing is much like the amp you have, you can program each channel to have any effects and eq you want, and with the pod, you can make as many channels as you want as opposed to be limited to 4 on the amp.

i too have that amp and really like it. but just a question about it, do you find that the clean channel doesnt sound clean enough if you turn up your volume fairly high? i've been noticing this, but im not sure if it's a design flaw, or just something wrong with my particular amp.

machinegun, there's no picture on your post. try just posting a link, maybe. i'd be interested to see it.

i've got a podxt pro, and it's fantastic. i did have separate pedals... got a photo somewhere... aha! that's the pictures i uploaded when i sold it all on ebay. notice my lovely carpet. separate pedals were great for versatility but so expensive. the pod has a lot more effects included than i had in separates and it is very versatile - just not quite as much as separate pedals. with the pod i can plug straight into my computer to record or edit all my presets. it'll also plug straight into a PA or mixing desk, with no mucking around with microphones.

i dont have enough money for anything more than a guitar so i guess the pod or pedal is out of the question. gifts and borrowing are the only ways i can roll

yes me, i dropped it 2 steps down, sounds like crap. But that's because im using a 10.5G. I bet it will sound much better on 11's

Do you know the tuning, Ian? From what I remember Sick Cycle is in a tuning that no other snng is in. He told me once, but I definitely don't remember.
