Hi guys. I need your help with this one.

When playing my guitar with rythem my guitar sounds really nice and chuggy, but as soon as i do lead on it I find i to be too thin and not sounding very good.

My question is what pedal will help me make it sound better?

Thanks

Have you tried adding a bit of bass and mid?

Mid and bass are at 1 o clock, and as it is a 1 channel amp can't just add more without a eq pedal. Which I was considering to get to add more mids and boost it a bit too

are you using your overdrive to get your rhythm sound? it would be the obvious choice if not. if you are then perhaps an EQ could give you a bit of a boost and change the eq to cut through better.

I would say get an EQ pedal. An eq will boost your sound and give you the mids you need to cut through. Also try some delay or reverb. They both can add alot of texture to your leads.
