Which guitar effects are better: Single-effect stomp boxes or multi-effects pedals?

There are a lot of cool multi-effects pedals out there that give you a bigger bang for your buck...if you're looking at a dollar-per-effect ratio. After all, some sacrifices have to be made to squeeze all those multi-effects into a small box and keep the price low. Individual, dedicated effect pedals often deliver superior effects with a wider rage of adjustabilityŠbut they cost more on a per/effect basis. In other words, you can typically get more sonic quality and more variations on a single- effect pedal. Here's the bottom line: If your music requires multi-effects, then you need a whopping multi-effects pedal. But if you're only going to use a few effects, dedicated stomp boxes may better serve you.
