Well I currently have £65 but I'm uncertain as to what I wish to spend my money on.

I'm considering either a Boss DD-3 or a Boss GE-7, then with whatever money I have left over I'll buy some better patch cables.

but which would be more of an essential purchase?

My current gear is: Ibanez S470, Roland Cube 60, Boss DS-2, ZVEX Fuzz Factory, Dunlop Wah and Behringer EQ700.

I'm not interested in saving for a new amp just yet so please don't suggest that.

so which would be best? Upgrading my crappy Behringer EQ or expanding the currently limited delay options I have on my Cube 60?

You probably don't want to hear this, but don't buy a pedal and save up for a better amp instead. (Out of those two choices, EQ).

EDIT:
Oh, you really didn't want to hear that.

I'd go with the delay pedal, then i would set your reverb/delay on your amp to reverb. Oh and pm sent

Yeah it's just I only got the cube recently so I'm not really looking for another amp, but I'm eventually gonna save for a Marshall DSL401 (assuming I like it when I try it)

yeah I was thinking of going with the delay pedal, when I've got distortion turned on I can't really notice the delay on the cube. And also thanks a lot for the PM, you've been a big help.

I'll let you know how I get on

Depends what you REALLY want.

I say get an EQ pedal because you can seriously mess with a lot of stuff; make your leads show off more and all of that.

since you cant buy a better amp, i would go with the eq. its much more useful than most people would give it credit for. not only can you fix week spots in your sound, but you can also make so interesting tones with it.
#10
what the **** are you taalking about? An EQ pedal won't work well with a cube? An EQ pedal will work wih any amp. Do you even know what an EQ does?
#11
id go for EQ, ive got the boss ge-7 and its one of my favourite pedals, never off, seems boring compared to the delay but it makes a bigger difference than youd imagine
#13
ive never tried a behringer eq but if its like any of their other gear its probably worth it.

has anyone compared?
#14
id go for the delay..

Does that work well? I was really looking into getting that since I'm just a beginner and I need a pedal.

so the fish 'n' chips is definately a worthy upgrade? it'll be just as good as the boss?

cause if I get that I might be able to get a DD-3 ASWELL (used, of course)

I say delay. EQs only use is as a solo boost, because otherwise you don't need anymore than 3 bands.

Well, have YOU tried an EQ pedal with a Cube? 'Cause I have, and it didn't do very much difference to the sound at all, probably because it's a modelling amp and it lacks an effects loop. May vary between the different amp models though, but I found it only did much difference when put behind a distortion pedal.

And I'd still vote for delay.

Eq because it really changes your tone very much

Delay.

You're really not playing music for money are you?

By the way, you've got a lot of pedals for an amp that won't take them in well. Hint, hint.
