Hi everyone,

I just earned a $15 discount towards Musician's Friend from my past purchases and was looking for something to spend it on.

I figure I'll put it towards a pedal of some sort.

My current gear:
Fender MIM Strat (with humbucker in bridge)
Buddy Guy Sig Wah
V2 Jekyll and Hyde
Fender Blues Junior

Here's what I've been thinking of:
Eq: Danelectro Fish n Chips
Chorus?
Also I'm mainly trying to achieve a nice and smooth lead tone, and if possible,
find a decent metal tone (with the blues junior, i know hence the eq)

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, i don't want to spend a whole lot of money btw

An MXR eq would be a good idea. Although a lot of people disagree, I'd say just get the 6-band. Maybe you should also look into a fuzz, or a clean boost

would the 6 band be enough of an eq? I've never owned or operated an eq outside of an amp's eq, and I've wondered if a 7 band or below would actually give you the amount of control you'd be looking for

I've used the 6 band and I've found it enough, bu then again, I don't even find myself needing an eq. I can get the sounds I want using my amp and guitar. But I find that the 6 band gives plenty of control.

Maybe a new neck pickup if you don't already have a great one?

what pickups would you recommend? I'd like something strong but that still keeps the strat tone and feel

SSL [neck] or APS-1 [neck]. Both are great neck pickups!

The SSL can sound almost exactly like a vintage Strat pickup.
The APS-1 [neck] is my favourite pickup of all the pickups on my guitars. Just sounds so nice, warm and 'creamy', but still sounds like a Strat should! It also sounds amazing when combined with my middle pickup.
