What do you want to do with this sound? Play it at home? Headphones, PC or amp? Which amp? Will you be jamming with others, or playing in a band?

There are loads of processors that will give you typical 80's studio tones, the Pod comes to mind, great to use with headphones or straight to PC. Not quite so great at band volumes though.

Or do you want a few pedals tp use with your amp that will give you some 80's sounds?
