Okay boys and girls, what's your preference and why? I have both. I have a effects box I got on sale and mainly use it for messing around at home. I can plug head phones in and rock out without bothering people in the next room. It allows me to test effects without having to buy an individual stomp box and hope I got the right one. However....... When I play, I like stomp boxes better. I just think my guitar sounds better. Your turn.
