Peavey Vypyr 15 vs. Fender Mustang I

I've seen many of these debates, but never any quite centered around the sound I'm looking to get. Honestly, I probably couldn't have made it harder on myself to get an accurate sound, as I chose Muse. I know lots of their stuff is just the Fuzz Factory, but I can't quite drop that much on one effect yet, being a beginner. And I also have a crappy guitar and amp.

So, anyway. For a Muse-like sound, which would you recommend? I've gotten some semi-decent sounds through my Fender 15g with a Boss DS-1, and I figured the Mustang I will only get better, and the FUSE software intrigues me. However, the Vypyr has caught my attention, probably due to clever marketing. Which would you guys recommend?

Guitar: Fender Squier Strat (That'll be upgraded to a Standar HSS Strat by the end of the year, so if you could also take that into account, please.)

I'd get a used Fender Mustang II or Peavey Vypyr 30. Both have a 12" speaker, which is a huge plus. IMO a 12" speaker separates viable backup/practice amps from junk throw away amps.

That said either should be able to do the job well. Just get the footswitch for either and you shouldn't have any issue.

With cheap amps like those, the quality is pretty much equal. The Vypyr is geared more twards hard-rock/metal while the mustang is more clean/mid-gain
