I play hard rock, alternative, blues, some metal and I was just wondering what would be the neccessary pedals to use. Right now I use an OCD, Boss DD-5 primarily for rhythm. I also have a B52 AT100 tube head. I have seen most of the pedal board pics on here and I don't need alot of pedals. I am just curious to what the neccesary one's may be. I use the distortion from my amp with my footswitch but was thinking of getting a good distortion pedal too. So would it be better to use a pedal or the amp for distortion.
