I hate to disagree with TLBonehead - cause I respect his opinion. But I tired the latest tonelab (the black/gold one) - I was disappointed. I have a couple in the RP line that I really like. I have an older RP150, and also the newer RP55. On the RP series you can modify like 50 settings to your taste, and still have the factory 50 presets. My recommendation is to spend a little more money and get one with a Alpha display. Also try to get one that has a looper. The RP55 has a looper and it has really help me develop my lead playing. I had been working on a couple original licks which sounded to me - really cool - but from working with the looper I realize some of the notes were actually out of key. The looper has help me a lot in that area.

Thanks for the quick and thoughtful responses. :thu:
Tech21 is an attractive option. I've got a Double Overdrive 3X that I love. Actually bought it for the KC150. Doesn't play well with it, but it's not a modeler. So I have high hopes for a Tech21 modeler, though no experience with one.
Forgot about Tonelab, sounds like I should pick through their versions carefully. Same approach to Line6 and RP series, I guess.
Didn't consider modeling software - maybe I should look into that as well? I've got a Mac that could be used to run it; been thinking about using it for recording, maybe combine those efforts? I'd need a physical interface of some sort though, right?
Thanks again, and please keep the suggestions coming!

The nice things about the Tech 21 stuff is they aren't digital. They are the amp circuit shrunk done and transistorized. Other options for amp-based pedals are Menatone and OLC.
But the Tech 21 Blonde is becoming super popular.
