Would a pedal on vox vt15 make it sound better than a peavy vypr 15 for metal?
I am a beginner guitarist. I think i like the vt15 more than the peavy vypr 15 cause it is more versatile but i read it doesn't have the clearest of gain and that the vypr 15 has more saturated better gain.
will pedals add a decent amount of noise making the vt15 worst off? and what sort of pedal is most suitable?
I saw used boss pedals for $35 and thats cheap. so that is why i am considering a versatile amp + pedal so i can get best of both worlds over vypr which is more metal oriented.
i will go test it in stores but i just want to ask guitarist with more exposure to different amps to see what they think.
my cousin has a boss mt-2 metazone pedal he will give to me. will that sound good with the vox vt15? if anybody has tried it.
None of those solid state 15watt amps are powerful enough to play with a drummer, they are meant for practice. For future reference, tube amps are much louder watt for watt. I have a 15 watt modified Blues Jr. that is loud enough to play with drums, but it's not a clean sound, it breaks up. My 60watt tube amps will knock pictures off the walls. Seriously! All the pro's use tube amps, they just sound better.
I have heard the Vox amps and was pleasantly surprised that they sound pretty good. It might be a good idea to get the amp that sounds the best "clean", the one that has the nicer tone. I say don't worry about using the overdrive on the amp. If you run it clean and use a good "metal" specific pedal it should do fine for you.I think you can get it louder that way too. If you get a regular overdrive like the Boss, you won't be as happy, unless it says "metal" on it. Most overdrive pedals are meant for classic rock tones. You really want one that is advertised as being just for metal. Here's the metal pedals on MF.
I don't have a preference for which one, but MXR makes high quality pedals at a good price and are often overlooked.They were one of the first effect manufacturers. Maybe you can find one you want, and then look on eBay or Craigslist for a used one for cheap.
So my advice, get the Vox, you may want to play more styles than metal. Get a metal pedal. Don't worry about noise. If you dial in the controls good, it won't be so bad. You don't notice it while you are playing anyway. If you are using single coil pick ups, like a Strat, it's the guitar making the noise. If you point the neck in different directions you will find a quiet spot. It acts like an antenna for RF signals.
