I don't really like multi effect things.
To buy:

Line 6 MM4

Mesa Boogie Single rectifier

Boss TU-3 Done
Shure SM58 Done



OUCH MY WALLET

I'd say Boss Metalcore or EHX Big Muff USA, Morley Bad Horsie II wah, and Line 6 DL4 would be optimal SHRED/METAL tone. Maybe a DigiTech Whammy for the Dragonforce type tricks. Rock on!
