So i've managed somehow to save up £200 or so and I'm thinking of adding a few pedals to my current set-up.

At the moment I only have: Russian Big Muff, Jekyll and Hyde, Digitech Whammy

I was thinking maybe a mxr micro amp to boost the signal for the the tone drop with my whammy, and a delay pedal, but seeing as I have a nice amount of money I'm open to suggestions.

My main guitar is a 3p-up Eastwood Airline and I play through a Fender Twin Reverb.
I play bluesy-rock like Black Keys/White Stripes, general rock/slightly spacey liek Placebo/Portishead and a more indie-ish rock sound like Interpol.

So any specific pedal suggestions? Also any orders to put them in would help...

Cheers

EQ - MXR 10-Band I hear is good
Delay - Boss DD6 I also hear good things about
Phaser/Flanger - You didn't mention one of these, but it's really cool for that "spaced out" sound you said about.

I was thinking maybe a tremolo pedal or a sustainer also, would these be beneficial or irrelevant (more about the sustainer)?

A Compressor/Sustainer is a very very useful tool if you know how to use one well. Only problem with a lot of them is that they tend to be quite noisy due to the nature of how they work, maybe an idea to get a noise gate with it. The only problem with that is that it'd eat your budget with those 2 pedals without a huge difference in tone, or the versatility of the other pedals I mentioned above.

's all preference though!

As already stated, compression/sustainers are cool, but you definately do need a noise gate. I tried out the EH Soul Preacher Nano at Guitar Center today, and it was noise out the hizouse. I probably had more gain going on than you would for White Stripes, but still.

How about a chorus pedal? Those sound excellent through Fender Twins.

Indie stands for Industrial I think, like Marilyn Manson.

i'd go for a TB box for the whammy, cost practically nothing.

i think delay is for you EHX memoryman series?

Only thing I can think to add are a nice wah pedal (vox makes an excellent one), a chorus (boss' stereo chorus is nice), and either a nice flange/phaser and a volume pedal (for some nice volume swells).
AMP:
5150 combo
GSP1101 + Tech 21 PE60

GUITARS:

EFFECTS:
Bos SD-1 (boost)

No they don't get in my way at all, but the middle pick-up was annoying during palm-muting so i lowered it and its fine now,

Thanks for the pedal suggestions, any specific models I should think about for phaser/flanger?
...And sorry if it's obvious but what's a TB box?

it basically converts any pedal to true bypass, so your whammy wont suck tone when not in use

Ah great, Do you attach the whammy in a kind of effects loop from it then?

pretty much

the signal either goes straight from input to output, of out the send and the return goes to the output. you connect the pedal inbetween the sent/return
