Watch the Jeff Beck online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Kings of Tone
Looking for THE tone is a never ending quest! Fortunately it's a lot of fun, unfortunately it can get very expensive! A good basic classic pedal setup is a silent tuner (a must!), a wah (a Crybaby will do you just fine), a modulation effect (my favorite is the Uni-Vibe), overdrive (Tube Screamer is a classic) and a delay or reverb. This is the order that I have them on my basic pedal board and I am happy with the results. The modulation pedals can go before or after the overdrive. I prefer them before. The delays and reverbs should always come last in the chain where they definitely sound the best.
