My only issue with the GNX 3 is that you can just about get a decent tube amp for that kind of money and really improve the tone of your rig, rather than just spreading it out a lot.

Or I could hand-pick some choice stomp boxes.

The DG Stomp is going for $169 at Zounds -- I'm inclined to go that route right now and add a Yamaha foot pedal for $40.

DG stomp? Not familiar with that one. Yamaha makes an AG stomp and a UD stomp, not sure about DG stomp though... Your best bet (if you MUST go with a multi-effects pedal) is the one of the Digitech GNX series pedals, the ZOOM 9150 Valve DSP, or one of the Boss GT series.
The Zoom I mentioned is much like the GNX or GT series, but the patches are set up a bit differently. You assign general sounds to stomp-box shaped pedals mounted on the board. Each individual stomp-box pedal has knobs for you tweak the sounds as if you had actual analog pedals mounted on a pedalboard. Very unique design.
The Boss GT-5 is your best bet, though.

Ibanez Rg320dx($400), BC Rich Thunderbolt($75)

1984 Crate 2x 100 watt combo amp with dual 8 inch celestions. Talk about a loud little amp (it can break glass at 8 at short range)($60 at a pawn shop) Peavey studio hand built tube for clean (mere 120 watts but pristinely clean)(right place at right time)

Boss ME 30 ($40), Tempest in a coffee pot, (the most potent and rarest of all distortion pedals, its 1 of a kind)

a gadget I made that switches between clean and distorted amps that I built out of a lightswitch.
Mostly I just use the amp distortion, cause once upon a time crate made amps that had a good distorted tone, unfortianetly I have yet to see one that could match mine made after 1990.

Umm... if you've got a JCM600, why the heck would you mess up your signal chain with a distortion box?!!!!!!!!! THat Marshall is a distortion monster!

I like Marshall's warm tube dist.
Are you insane? I've owned both a JCM 900 and JCM 2000 DSL 100. More gain than you'll ever need. Check the guitar sounds of the Deftones, A Perfect Circle, Glassjaw (prior to the newest album), etc. if you don't believe me. All of them use Marshalls.

Now, Boss DS-1's are certainly not known for their superior high gain. They are known for their low-gain approach.

It's grrrrrreeeaaaat. One day I'm gonna re-buy a Legacy. THey sound next to perfect, but they are a bit unreliable.

Let's see...

  • Gibson Flying V reissue or Gibson Les Paul Standard
  • Audio Technica Wireless
  • Dunlop Volume Pedal
  • Dunlop Wah
  • Line 6 POD (with FB-4 Pedal)
  • Rivera R100
  • 2 4x12 Cabinets

    That's the gist of it. I have a couple patches for the POD that I'll switch between using the pedal, then of course the Rivera's boost stages for leads & such.
