dubstep and pedal woes
I'm trying to figure out exactly which pedals I need for the sound I want without getting the expensive ones because that's what everyone else uses. i.e. getting a simple fuzz rather than a top of the line distortion.
I've gone through a few purchases and trades that looking back I think I had what I needed but not the full knowledge to realize it. Here's my situation:
Doing some dubstep type stuff with my band. I bought a BEF Pro at a decent price on here, found it too complicated and couldn't get what I was looking for out of it. Sold it.
Thought I needed the MBD instead so I got that. Have a wired hot hand ring now and the two have been working alright so far, but I need more.
As it turns out, if I'm right, - Should have kept the BEF Pro and just used a normal distortion pedal with it.
The problem was I didn't have my ring at the time of owning the BEF, so it didn't occur to me to combine things and try it out.
Long story short, I feel completely stupid, realize what I need now, and want some suggestions as to what will work for my budget.
Need: Boss PS-5 Pitch Shifter; HH3 or somehow get a Midi-Exp; BEF.
Have: MBD, Wired HH.
Thinking of selling the MBD and a couple other pedals I don't use, plus some cash for the above. (BEF + Big Muff + PS-5 + HH3 = close enough to Nathan Navarro-ness?
Will the BEF be fine with a standard distortion or do I need my MBD because it can accept a HH?
Thank you so much for input!
