If its just a better sound that you want then dont buy another pedal. save up some more and get a better amp, it will be a much better investment. What settings do you have your amp to? I dont see why the guvnor would be so hard to get an decent sound from.

Start using scales other than pentatonic.

Oh, you're talking about tone. Can't help you there.

But I can help you with that horrible spelling problem.

you have to listen to more music, and learn scales, and just play using feeling instead of your knowledge of what is "right" and "wrong".

try to pick up licks, little solos, etc, so you can play around with those ideas, and in time you will be coming up with your own stuff and you won't be bored.

practice is the key.

You might try turning your gain down on your pedal. Too much gain will muddy up the actual notes you're playing to the point where you can't even distinguish notes.

On your amp turn the treble to botu 7 and bass up to about 7 too. Dont know what para mid is but id say leave it. On gain on the guvnor turn it to around 7/8 and turn the mid slightly down.

Turn up your bass, then. The bass will round out the sound quite nicely. I've heard people say to scoop the mids (treble and bass as high as possible, mids to 0), but I prefer a little bit of mid in my tone, so my amp settings are something like this:

Bass = 10
Mid = 6
Treble = 8

And I get a pretty decent tone from that out of my little Peavey practice amp. I don't even need to use a pedal to get that tone sounding nice, so just try messing with the bass settings. No bass will make the tone sound kind of flaky, so turning that up will probably solve some problems.

And a little bit of reverb is kind of nice for a lead tone. Too much of it can kill your sound (unless you're Devin Townsend), but add just a subtle amount. That can make a huge difference.

And your keyboard still appears to be missing a shift key
