Need advice for a good gain booster

Hi, i have a marshall 1959slp reissue, which does not offer as much gain as i sometimes require. I have 200USD and i am looking for a good gain booster to work with this amp to get sound like gnr, randy rhoads and dream theater.
Pardon my english.

Epiphone les paul standard plustop pro (LH)
Marshall Vintage 1959slp reissueBoss DD-3
Jim Dunlop GCB95 wah pedal

You can never go wrong with a Way Huge Green Rhino.
DT sound might be a bit tricky to pull off either way though with that amp, but the Green Rhino could sure help.
The mid curve and the 100hz cut/boost is incredibly helpful as well if you want to sculpt your sound before it hits the amp.
Things with strings:
Ibanez J.Custom, Prestiges, RG8, SR5 bass etc
LP's, Strat, Tele
ENGL Retro Tube 50
5150 III 50W
Orange Terror Bass

I recommend a zvex sho! It's one of the best and loudest boost pedals, and also really transparent.

gain booster is a very very general description. an overdrive? distortion, clean boost?

it depends how you run your amp. if you mean a boost or clean boost, are you boosting a distorted or crunch channel?
