I bought a guitar about a year ago just to screw around but ended playing it more than I anticipated. Until now I've just been playing to a straight plug in into a fender keyboard amp (I also play that) but never really bought anything for it.

Now that I'm getting better I want to start messing around with different tones and stuff like that but don't really know enough about guitar to know what to buy...

My Guitar as of now is a Epiphone Les Paul

Do I need a new amp? Could I just get an effects pedal? What is the best thing to get for the money in either case?

Thanks a lot for your help in advance and sorry if I seem like a complete moron asking this.
buy a roland cube or peavy vyper
