The Peavey is worlds ahead of the Spyder. Straight up, just don't buy the Spyder. It's terrible.

The only way to test a 9v :haha:

I'd replace it anyway. Can't hurt.
Maybe the 18v mod would help you out? It's meant to make your pickups behave more closely to passives.

I'd get a Pod HD. It'll be the best sounding, quiet solution with headphone out.

You should really tell us your maximum budget and what country your from so we can help you properly though.

That's cool.

By bypassing the whole board do you mean that your signal just goes dry through the pedal? Because that's what I'm looking for. I thought holding it was for the tuner?

The Fish n Chips is a good pedal, especially for the money. Not the most durable, though.

If you can afford it, a used MXR 10 band would be the best bet. It's pretty much the go to for eq.
