Ok let me start out by saying ive been a member of this website for 3 years and never been into the effects forum. Ive always blown off effects and figured a good amp and bass will do it. I finally got my dream setup so i decided to add a distortion pedal and maybe a compressor or sumthing. I know alot about effects but never been a fan of them. Right now i have a stingray4 and a spectort going into ampeg b4r (new yahhhh). I play punk/hard rock/emo kind of stuff. Ive played for 8 years so skill wise im alright, i just wanna play around with sum different sounds live. Does anyone have any ideas for me to try. Im thinkin sum sort of distortion like a sans amp, but do they have enough cut?? I heard timmy c ( one of my idols) uses the marshall guvnor pedal. ALso if sumone could suggest a compressor, or even if thats a good idea. thanks.
