so OK. you all seem to know what you're on about. I've been playing clean for about 8 years, but never experimented with effects. I was thinkin' of gettin' a multi-effects, but advice seems to be that they're c#*p. What advice do you guys have for which I should go for just to mess about. (and yes, I realise its like asking what strings should I buy!) I just want to try some new sounds. Also, I've been offered a Boss ME8B for £170 ($246), and a DOD TR3 for £99 ($143). What d'ya think?
