The start of tone - my ton

Views: 179

Well let me start this by saying the start of tone for me, or at least the tone which I call my own is the sound I get when I plug my Epiphone SG G-400 (at current with stock pickups, which actually pretty high output but obviously far from the best) into my Marshall TSL60 head running through my Marshall MG412a cab, straight clean sound nothing fancy but that is the basis of tone or at least my tone. Bottom line is a straight foward guitar (well electric guitar anyway) through a clean amp is the basis of tone for any guitarist, it's how they go about setting it all up which interests me.
I've rescentley bought my lovely TSL60 amp head and decided that well I now have the amp I have always wanted (JCM 2000 series) I don't want to use the modelling on my Zoom G9.2tt which in all fairness was never the easiest tool to work with, but still my Zoom unit has it's main use which it's great at, recording I can record straight through to my computer without bothering with amp and cabs and anything equipment wise, just guitar and computer and come out with pro quality stuff but as part of my live rig it's time has ended. (main reason being the annoying problems getting clean and distorted volume levels to match together)
So here we go it's time to start putting things together, my first order and most important  ly the one thing I can't live without, a very nice Plantet Waves Chromatic pedal tuner with true bypass, hey it's true bypass and nice and easy to read it's spot on way superior to the boss tuner.
And I have placed an order in and it should turn up on Monday is the Zakk Wylde Crybaby, built to last thats what I nead and a wah built to give you a great range and to give you a nice edge, NICE!
anyhow this is where I fall short, I dunno wether to go for the Zakk Wylde overdrive and the MXR boost or the combined MXR boost/overdrive, I know the cost is more but I'm thinking about the individuals as I could possibly put the overdrive before the wah, so yeah anyways
See you all reall soon, and I would really appreciate help if someone can help me with my pedal board
