    does anyone know what sounds or effects would be good for ska? or punk?
  2. well, as far as i know, most punk and ska players don't have effects, maybe an eq, it wouldn't hurt to throw a little OD pedal in there...

    OD = overdrive, not to make you feel stupid, but i see you're new so you might not know.

    Basically thats the only efffect id think of using for Ska. Since Ska usualyl has a keyboard/synth, too much effect such as chorus or synth or something would sound redundant.

    Any effect can work, try out as many as you can at a local store and see what sounds good to you. I think a ska band has lots of room for you to try out different sounds because you got a lot more musicians playing while you are.
