GT-10 gets my vote smile.gif Or the cheaper GT-8 is also great if you dont want to spend too much on a single unit.

The V-amp is the cheaper version of Line 6 and it works pretty well.

I suggest you to try Line 6 and Boss stuff, preferably trying the top models first ( GT-10 and POD X3 live).

Then you select the model that tailors your use/budget...

If - by accident - a ZOOM product gets in your way, don't hesitate to try it out. G9.2tt is the most reasonble purchase, but it can be expensive, if you are still experimenting.

So I would recommend you to try them out, cause I'm satisfied with them, and they're cheaper than line6 pods. wink.gif

All the multi Fx mentioned here are great. Don't rule out the stomp boxes completely though, at the end of the day they are better quality:)

I agree with FrankW. The TC Electronic G-system is the best, but ofcourse the most expansive, but it sure has a lot of options to experiment with smile.gif

If cheaper i'd say one of the Boss multieffect systems. Not sure which one tho ... wink.gif

GT-10 or TC nova system , but stompboxes are very good , what effects you currently have (in stompboxes).Maybe it would be cheaper to buy few more to get all the effects you need (remember they are high quality)..

It depends on your budget, a cheaper option would be boss me20 or a cheap zoom pedal, and the best options out there would probably be pod X3 and boss GT10.

I only currently own 4 stomp boxes. I have the Boss CS-3, DS-2, SD-1 and RV-5 (but for some reason i think the RV-5 might be broken because when i plug it in the light does not turn on and ive tried a 9V battery too and connected it up to my amp and guitar and no light still or sound huh.gif its abit annoying coz that was the most expensive one i bought, over £100 sad.gif)

I also own a Behringer UO100 (i think thats the number laugh.gif ) octaver but i never really use it coz the quality of it isnt that good and only works on certain notes on the fretboard (mainly low ones).

I also have the dunlop wah pedal too - not really stomp box tho lol

Sounds good take a look:

POD X3
http://www.thomann.de/gb/line6_pod_x3_live.htm £355
http://www.thomann.de/gb/line6_pod_x3.htm £286 (this one is the same, but not pedal board)

BOSS GT-10
http://www.thomann.de/gb/boss_gt10.htm £321

Local shop prices are usually a bit higher than online though. But that gives you an idea of what they go for.

Ye i was thinking buyin online would maybe be cheaper but i could go into local shop to try it out because they let you try even if you dont buy smile.gif

That boss gt-10 looks a bit of a beast laugh.gif looks really complicated huh.gif , is it easy to use because i have never used a multi effect pedal before ever laugh.gif

Thanks for your suggestion too smile.gif

I haven't used it so i don't know, but many here at GMC are happy with it, and it seems easy enough to handle.

There are more simple models which you might be interested in such as these:

Thanks ill have to check them out and look more into it, i have seen that boss me50 before but i mite just get the gt10 and experiment with it, it will have instructions and i guess it just takes a bit of experimenting to get used to all the functions smile.gif which im willing to do lol

Ill definately research into it tho instead of just going with gut feeling, 30days money back guarantee seems pretty reasonable time to experiment with too smile.gif

Thanks again to everyone

The boss me ones are good as well but I don't think they have the amp emulation, which I generally don't like anyway. They are more bare bones which I actually prefer. With the GT 10 you get everything you could every possibly need and then some, so if complexity is important to you the ME series would probably be a better fit. Like is always said here though, try out whatever you can before coming to a decision.
Other multi-fx are the digitech RP500 and the Rocktron Utopia G200.
If I was buying a multi-fx unit right now I would buy the tc electronics nova system, great bang for the buck given the quality of the fx and seems to be quite stage friendly as well, that's something you would probably have forever, like buying a really nice tube amp smile.gif

I own a G9.2tt and I am pretty happy with it, the pre-amp tubes really add something to the board. If you are into rock/metal just check this one out as well (to bad I am going more and more away from metal towards bluesrock tongue.gif). There is always the discussion about Zoom products being less quality etc., which might be true although I have owned several Zoom products and none ever let me down smile.gif
