    Incidentally O/P, you now have what is refered to in these parts as GAS.
    Gear-Aquisition-Syndrome. It is indeed incurable... enjoy!

    Tell me about it. I've had GAS many times, just not with guitars (primarily bikes and skis).

    I've been through a similar stage, have a Mustang 2 then went to a laney Cub 12R. Just liked the tube sound better and the Mustang took too much time fiddling with setup. I bought a couple of pedals to experiment with and stuck with Joyo. They seem reasonably good and won't break the bank. The first one I recommend is a tuner. The Joyo pedal tuner works great and makes checking easy. The Vintage Overdrive and Chorus pedals are the only other ones I have. I don't need anything else.

    Someone suggested the BD-2 into a solid state amp. I like the closely related Boss OD-3 into a solid state (or any) amp. And you can usually find it cheaper.

    +1 on the OD-3. It's got rounder tone than the BD-2 and might sound better with the Bandit. They usually go for around $40 used in these parts.
