I had a bos mt-2 for a while and hated it. I've tried the ml-2 and wasn't much impressed by it.

The ds-1 is an awesome little box. It's very basic, but it works well enough. It has enough gain to do the heavy stuff too.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?

Any pedal in your assumed budget is going to be worse than the models on your Cube.

If our budget is high enough to get a nice dirt pedal then you should get a better amp instead.

If you don't mind saving up a bit I'd recommend selling both those amps and getting one decent one.

Sell the amps and pedals you have and get a decent amp. If you give us this stuff, we could help you with that decision:

Budget
Location
Are you willing to go used?
Current Gear
Genres
Will you be jamming with a drummer and/or playing live?
