    Ok, so I have $50.00 left to spend on pedals... I know not a lot of $ to spend, but I love the thrill of the hunt and finding something at a good price, or trying brands that aren't always the most popular. I lead worship, and play music similar to: Bon Iver, Jonsi, Explosions in the Sky, Thrice, Death Cab for Cutie, Sunny Day Real Estate, and so on.. So what should I get?

    Here's my signal path: Gibson LP 50's tribute or Squier CV 50's Tele-> Ernie Ball VPJR -> Joyo Tuner (pitch black copy) -> TS808 clone -> Fulltone Fulldrive II Mosfet (comp cut/clean boost) -> Lovepedal Les Lius -> Danelectro Trans. OD v1 -> Line 6 MM4 (modulation modeler) -> EHX Deluxe Memory Man w/tap tempo -> Boss DD20 Giga Delay -> Behringer Verbzilla copy -> A/B/Y box -> both inputs of my AC30cc2x

    I figure I have delay, reverb, dirt, and modulation covered, but I want to find something even if it is in one of those categories but is unique sounding. Some thoughts I have.. the Joy octave/fuzz? a dirt pedal with a little more gain on tap but not pushing me into hi gain territory..

    FUZZ!!!

    Or, you could consider selling something you have and adding the $50 to it to upgrade, maybe a different reverb?

    I am thinking fuzz. It would be fun. There are several low priced fuzz pedals which could be fun to mess around with. The verb was a Christmas gift and it seems to do the trick. I use it sparingly as I plan to upgrade my AC30 reverb for traditional verb, and use the pedal for more ambient verb sounds.

    Even if I have the bias trem of the vox and the trems in the MM4? I hear good things about the tuna melt.

    Oh my bad, I forgot about the trem in the Vox. How about a nice strap then? :D

    I'm also considering just getting some expression pedals or those one big knob style pedals to control various elements of the DMM TT or MM4.

    Or you could get the t1m Blender and experiment with mixing your overdrives with your clean signal! I've kind of always wanted to try that...

    I have some Planet Waves which just came in this week on replacement. Love warranties. I had the last set for 10 years before I had any issues.

    I was just watching a video on the Big Muff Pi because there is one for sale here locally. It doesn't sound too bad and it has a wide range of tones.
