Good evening gentlemen,

So, my dilemma is that I'm not sure which piece of equipment I should get next. I am looking for something that will improve or add something new to my sound. My current rig is in my sig only my amp is changing (I plan to buy a Fender Blues Jr. shortly).

I like to play blues, rock and hard rock (very little metal)

Budget; I'd like to keep it $100(usd) but I could stretch that.
Gear:
Fender Stratocaster
Silvertone 1448L
TC Electronic Polytune
Fender Blues Jr.

If you don't know what to get then don't get anything.

Wasn't that simple?

I'm just looking for suggestions because I don't feel like my tone is "there" yet.

you cant rely on effects to generate your "tone"

but it sounds like an EQ would help you in your search

MXR 10 band is really nice, Im savin up for one myself
10 band EQ plus gain adjust, so very easy to modify your tone quickly

EQ is always usefl but you want to change your amp at some point to really make a drastic change in your tone.

I'd get the fender blues jr first, because you may like the sound of your new item with your fender 25 but you might not like it with your fender blues jr.

Why spend almost $600 on a made in mexico blues jr? Here's a made in USA for $300 near you.
http://tucson.craigslist.org/msg/1020393397.html USA BJr for $300

Here is a blonde delta blues as well, $300.

Don't buy new, help a fellow guitarist that needs the cash more than a big store.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
