Featuring MOSFET clipping diodes and a super-simple control set highlighted by a nifty Boost/Cut switch, this stompbox can function as a smooth clean boost or a conduit for screaming vintage gain.

The pedal that became the sound of an entire genre, the 'chainsaw' buzz of the Boss Heavy Metal soon spread from Swedish Death Metal to pretty much every genre.

Line 6 HX Stomp:
$699 $651, free plugins & Cubase LE (opens in new tab)
Gotta get those sweet Helix tones, but want to integrate them with your existing pedalboard? That’s precisely what the HX Stomp sets out to achieve. It’s the most tone per inch you’ll find on the market, with an astonishing level of flexibility given its diminutive stature. Buy it now from Sweetwater and not only will you save $48, but you’ll also get Line 6’s Helix Native and Metallurgy Collection absolutely free, along with Steinberg Cubase LE – freebies worth $598!
$699 $597 at Sweetwater (opens in new tab)
$102 off Boss’s flagship compact multi-effects pedal? Yessir: with all the processing power of the big-boy GT-1000, the GT-1000CORE is a veritable beast of a triple-footswitch multi-FX, especially at this price. It packs 32-bit audio, 24 simultaneous assignable effects blocks, AIRD guitar and bass preamps, two effects loops and USB connectivity. And with legendary Boss effects onboard, you know it will deliver tonally.
$429 $399 with free backpack (opens in new tab)
If you’ve previously found multi-FX and amp modelers a pain to program, HeadRush has the answer: the MX5’s four-inch touchscreen makes managing your signal chain a breeze, while the pedal itself is equipped with 46 amps, 15 cabs, 10 mic emulations, 300 IRs and 63 effects. Add in a 20-minute looper, simple patch switching and USB recording, and this is a steal for $399 – and it comes with a free backpack worth $149!
Line 6 HX Effects:
$649 $549, free plugins & Cubase LE (opens in new tab)
If you don’t need the HX Stomp’s amp models and would rather have extra footswitches at your disposal, the HX Effects is for you. It boasts eight capacitive-sensing footswitches and scribble strip displays so you can easily see what each switch is doing. Best of all, Sweetwater has slashed $100 off the price, and thrown in free Helix Native and Line 6 Metallurgy Collection plugins, plus Steinberg Cubase LE – a $598 value!
$149 $119 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Looking for maximum versatility from the smallest possible package? The MS-70CDR is the multi-FX you seek. CDR technically stands for Chorus Delay Reverb, but several mammoth firmware updates ensure the Zoom’s covers everything from pitch-shifting, every modulation type under the sun as well as its namesake effects. With a dedicated Reddit following and a low current draw, the MS-70CDR is something of a cult classic, and an essential purchase for alternative players in search of tripped-out tones.
$124 $99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
If a slightly more conventional feature set is more your style, the MS-50G includes a host of overdrive and more conventional effects – 47, to be precise – alongside eight amp models. Again, if you’re after maximum sounds from minimal pedalboard real estate, this is a must-buy, with a 20% discount at Amazon.
Line 6 Helix: free Helix Native, Metallurgy & Cubase LE
(opens in new tab)The Helix is Line 6’s flagship guitar processor, packing a dizzying array of ultra-accurate amp and effects models, all navigated via an intuitive interface that makes dialing in its tonal delights a breeze. For Cyber Monday, you can also equip yourself with the Helix Native plugin, which injects the unit’s gold-standard tones into your DAW, as well as a whole DAW, Cubase Elements, with your purchase, plus additional Line 6 Metallurgy plugins. It’s the perfect way to get into recording – and it’s included free!
Line 6 Helix LT: free Line 6 plugins plus Cubase LE (opens in new tab)
The LT sacrifices a few of the full-fat Helix’s lesser-used features – aux and mic inputs, external amp switching and scribble strips – but for the vast majority of players, it delivers all the tones and flexibility you could possibly desire, and at $999, it’s $500 cheaper, too. Add in free Helix Native and Metallurgy plugins and Cubase Elements DAW, and it’s a no-brainer.
TC Electronic Plethora X5: was $549, now $449 (opens in new tab)
Ever felt like you just want all the pedals, all the time? We feel your pain – and that’s why we’re stoked to see TC’s Plethora multi-effects unit on sale with Sweetwater.

Line 6 HX Stomp XL: free Line 6 plugins & Cubase LE
(opens in new tab)If you like the idea of the HX Stomp, but your insatiable lust for footswitches has you craving a higher shoe-to-click ratio, the XL is yer boy.

$82 $66 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

For starters, it features three loops, with up to 30 minutes of looping time, plus unlimited overdubs and undo/redo functionality. It will save your loops when the pedal powers off, and its built-in display shows where you are in the duration of your loop. It’s a steal at $66 for Amazon Prime members.
Singular Sound Aeros Loop Studio:
$699, now $599 (opens in new tab)
One of the most advanced looper pedals you can get your hands on, the Aeros is so packed with features, it blurs the line between looper and DAW.

Perhaps most impressive is the ability to create a ridonkulous 36 loops per song – with unlimited overdubs per loop – making this a solo loop performer’s dream, particularly with $100 off at Guitar Center.
Mooer Groove Loop X2:
$169 $118 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
A comprehensive looper and drum machine in one compact pedal, the Groove Loop X2 is the ideal rhythm partner in your one-man band. 14 save slots can store loops of up to 10 minutes in length, while 121 drum grooves spanning 11 musical styles should cover whatever kind of music you’re making.

All with a massive $85 off at Guitar Center.

This looping behemoth does it all: a quad-core DPS system with 7” touchscreen interface, the Looperboard is the looper pedal of the future – and now there’s a crazy $400 off at Guitar Center.

The 12(!) footswitches feature RGB Led indicators to keep track of your tracks, while there’s a comprehensive suite of Eleven HD Expanded effects to manipulate your loops.
Keeley ECCOS Delay and Looper:
was $249, now $211 (opens in new tab)
The ECCOS is a smart space-saving option for tightly packed pedalboards, teaming a delay pedal and looper in one twin-footswitched company pedal. Of course, this being a Keeley pedal, there’s more to it than that: the delay offers tonesome tape-style echoes, while the looper delivers reverse and half-speed functions, as well as a ‘play-once’ trigger. With loops that gradually degrade over time like an old-school reel to reel, this is one for the vintage enthusiasts, and it's all the more tempting with 15% knocked off the price at Sweetwater.
