I posted this in gear but was told I may find a better response here, so:

I'm looking for 2 new bits of kit to add to my washburn. Firstly, I need a pickup. I've been looking at the LR Baggs M1/M1A but it may be a little out of my price range. I like that it detects tapping etc. since that's a lot of what I play. Secondly, I need a loop peal. I've only ever played with an Akai Headrush, and it works fine for my purposes, so I need some looping advice on pedals that are as good as/better than the Headrush. Feedback resitance is very importance, since I don't want to be looping feedback! My combined budget is probably somewhere around the £200-£250 mark ($300-$400). Any advice? Let me know if you need more information from me. Thanks!
