Didnt see this. What Vypyr you have? Unless you only have the 15 watter or such getting a Blackstar modeler is a sidestep in my eyes. In that case I would take the gamble with Bugera if you want a...

definetly take a look at MIJ Tokai models. I have played only one so far but the quality felt outstanding. Much cheaper than Gibson equivalent too.

As a distortion pedal through a clean channel of the amps, it kinda sucks. No matter what you do with it it tends to become a can of bees. As a preamp to the power amp or FX Return of some good amp,...

If it has the typical tubescreamer tone (boosted mids and bass cut) then sure. I only have Bad Monkey and Boss SD1 myself, never tried a nux OD.
