If I see how confused you are with all these effect, how about buy a very cheap multi-effects thingy first, like a Korg AX3G (50$ or something). It doesn't sound very good, but it has a lot of effects, then you can see what those effefcts do! After learning, you can buy a good pedal.

actually for gear money is not a problem i have alredy got the money on the side for a lefty ibanez 1570 prestige(the only good guitar that comes left handed btw unless you have better offers) but i have no idea how can i get it out side the us because stores in Israel dont keep it. so the gear it already handled i just gotta find a way to get it here

can i record with the me50? it looks simple enough for me to use.


Sorry mate, but could you elaborate that first section of your post. I didn't understand what you were trying to say there?

ME50 is not a recording device, which means you cannot plug it into computer and use it as a sound card. What you can do if you have a proper sound card for recording, is connect the ME50 to line in on your card and record like that.

I use a Boss GT8 pedalboard. It's cheaper than the newer model and works great.
I use it for all my lessons...

First about your lefty guitar. Schecter makes lefty versions of most of their guitars. Including the hellraiser, which is a great metal guitar. And you should definitely get a good guitar first and then worry about effects. The guitar is the most important thing. Then the amp, and then maybe the effects.

Now about the effects. I use a BOSS GT-10. The effects are pretty good for such a multi effects unit. And compared to others it seems to have a bigger dynamic range. You can use it to record too and it has got some fancy features like an external effects loop that allows you to plug in pedals or like I do, a preamp. Probably better in terms of sound quality would be the the TC Electronics G-System. But it's also very expensive.

What gear to you own currently? This will help us to see what level of gear you can get to achieve a nice balanced gear chain.
