Effects…Yeah, I love my 30 year old Boss DM-2 analog Delay, which I use only for solos and the occasional ballad. That said, for my taste go easy on the effects! It’s a sure bet everyone in your group has some kind of effect running. It can quickly become a cluttered mess. Thru all that hoopla YOU will sound better if you keep it clean. You will also make the band sound better if you keep it clean. If you must, use only when called for. Remember- Less is More. It’s the same as too many notes-- It just doesn’t sound good!
