Yeah, the gain was closer to 4 come to think of it.
I can get a good 1984-1986 (Anthrax-madhouse, first Metallica album) thrash tone with the gain at 4 and no boost with my SH-6's on the ultra...

Depending on how you use the octave down settings, it can sound just like a dive bomb with a whammy bar. The "Dive Bomb" feature is 3 octaves (I think). So it's just a more extreme lowering of the...

Maybe the octave down or 2 octave down? More precise of a drop, won't kill your sound as quick.

Pretty well; like I said, easy to setup once you read the manual, very flawless switching. I like my model because it has designated loops for the input and fx loop. Couldn't pass up the $160 price...

That's an old pic; the cables are neater :) And the last time I played a bar was with the same amount of pedals but minus the joyo, and I faired pretty well

Get the Crybaby from hell. It's like a 535 but it has a fine tune (bass/treble) control. Even more adjustable.

It gives a pretty good kick; I used it to boost an already dirty amp for a solo boost using just the level and that was enough. It has a little bit of a mid bump/honk to it. Good for the price and...

Hardwire TL-2; same layout to the Metalzone but it is just sonically better, not as digital. I wouldn't say it's exactly amp-like, but compared to the metal zone it is. Unfortunately it won't handle...

joyo pxl pro is great for the price ($160 new on amazon for me) and allows both amp input and fx loop assignments. I have one and love it.

Here's what I'd do: Amp first. If you don't mind second hand amps: look for used DSL401s(make sure date of manufacture is after 2003) or DSL40Cs. That'll leave you about 500 pounds.

I agree with that second part, though just from experience.

If I'm using the amp's distortion it's for Maiden/other Brits from the era and thrash (anthrax, early metallica, the occasional slayer). And yeah, I'm a regular haha

I've only played the DSL40C; didn't think it was "too" bad, but by default it's the best amp I've played. What's the impact of open versus closed back?
