Hi there,

One of my good friends as a SERIOUS GAS PROBLEM.... He wants to buy a new guitar and is looking for a Telecaster. He wants to buy an American Telecaster but it is pretty expensive. So we went on a Pawn Shop trip in the city this afternoon.

Man ..... so many guitars, tube amps, stomps.... Crazy Gears.... I have found an American Standard Telecaster almost new for 850 CAN $.... That is probably around 500 Euros... Plays like a charm.

I was looking at those crazy stomps box... Example, I found a Ibanez Tube Screamer for 40$ some Boss Ds and OD for 25$, a Boss Eq pedals for 50$.

Theses prices are really good but I don't know how they sound with my amp... Since it is a pawshop, I don't really want to bring my guitar and my amps over there (I saw some weirdos over there wink.gif ).

My amp is a Roland Cube 60, it is a pretty good amp but I would like to get a few stomps but I don't know how they sound... Those anyone of you have ever tried stomp effects with this amp or know if it sounds good.

For now I have a volume pedal, a wah... My brother wants to give me a Boss compressor (the blue pedal)... I would like to have more flexibility to my tone (this amps is flexible but needs a bit of tweaking so you can't do it while you are playing). I kow I need a booster for soloing.. can I use a tube screamer or boss Od-1 for this purpose?

Lots of question here but the main one is : Do stomps boxes sounds well on a Roland Cube 60 ?

Thanks guys ....

edit : trying to change the title for Cube instead of Vube

You can use TS or OD for boosting, sure. Both of these pedals are nice thing to have laying around and they are pretty cheap, so - why not wink.gif

hmm. Does your brother's little blue boss compressor stomp have a "treble" switch on it? That's an extremely useful little piece of gear.

I don't think so ... If I remember correctly there is a level, tone, attack and sustain, on the Compressor.

Between I don't even know if that pedal is going to be useful in my rig. Maybe a great soloing pedal that I can use as a compressor/booster. I don't know !!!

The pedals will run fine on the cube, If You have to choose one, I'd go for either TS or DS, since You probably have most use for a overdrive/distorsion. Compressor is also good sometimes for getting sustain, if they are cheap, buy as many as possible,, You can never have too many of them.... wink.gif
