    The first pedal you need to buy is an EQ.

    Frequencies are everything in sound. And in many cases, you can use it to push your amp's gain
    like an OD/Dist, but have more control.
    I consider that if you need an EQ, you have badly balanced gear.

    I suggest you to get cheap tuner: pocket model, clip on etc.. whatever suits to you, and focus first on pedals you absolutely need (cheap tuner will almost always be just as good for the job than expensive one): Better to buy one good pedal, than handful of cheap ones, you'll want to get rid of later on anyway.
