    Go for the Pod. they have the best sounding distortion of the lot. Wahs on all of them are about equal.

    Get a Pentium or an AMD.

    I never got it with buying processors, I prefer buying pedals instead.

    Convenience, portability, easy use, experimentation. Processors offer quite a bit, and you can still use them with other pedals if you want. It's just another pedal.

    Anyway back to the thread starter: If you care about the sound, the pod is the best way, but try all of them first to see which one you'll like. Zoom sound very crap IMO. Haven't tried the V-Amp but from all the MFXs I've tried, Line6 always have the richest sound.

    NoneSoVile has got a point, DagMX. I thought similarily (processor supremacy!) till I got one and used it for some cant do two or more things at the same time ie, I feel the need for controlling different things simultaneously (commonest - Post-Processor Volume and some effect, prolly whammy; and I really miss the way Herman Li uses the whammy and the wah pedal together).
    With pedals, there's economy and specialization too. For instance, a wah pedal will be just that - a no nonsense wah pedal, and you pay for exactly what you want. When you buy a processor, you also buy in overheads loads of stuff you DONT want :RollLol:

    ^Buy a second hand accoustic.
    @wheelzkidd - Yep, that's something for me as well...I didnt know what my style was around 2 months back! So I just got barebone gear (a pickup in my old accoustic, an MG10CD) and an RP300A...whoo. Complete experimentation.

    I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. There are processors that can control multple parameters at once, and if you really wna tto control two effects, get a processor with an effects loop and hook up an external wah or whatever.
    I don't get why people treat processors as a seperate entity. Use it as a pedal. It'll sit in your effects chain and its upto you if you want to use it. If you want, just use it for a particular effect.
    With modern processors like the Line6 pods and the Digitech Rp series, you can getvery good sound quality for cheaper than a comparable single stompbox, and most people will not be able tot el the difference.
    It doesn't matter if it has more than you want, noone forces you to use that stuff.

    Hell, most larger processors let you use them in a stompbox mode as well.
