so, i assume you play metal.. if you don't need alot of effects i'd suggest pedals...

for a noise surpressor i'd look into those isp decimators (rack or pedal version)... tuner: korg dt10, boss tu2 and if you have a bit of cash get the strobostomp...

Racks are valuable for some applications...I personally prefer a pedalboard, but racks have their advantages (not as much risk of damage through wear and tear, etc). For you though, I agree you should probably go pedals if you won't be using many effects. You have two options basically, run guitar>pedals>into input of amp or guitar>input of amp and run the pedals in an effects loop....personally, if tuning and noise suppression are you're main issues, I'd go with the first example...

Hey hotaction,

 

I own 2 guitar rack systems, a combo amp w/ a small rack system and an analog pedalboard. Here some pictures:

What do you plan on upgrading your guitar rig with? Do you want to use your current amp head and an effects rack or go complete rack system with a preamp, effects unit and a power amp? It depends on how you want to configure your guitar rig.
