The Boss MT2 metal zone? I would like different kinds of metal distortions and the MT2 is great but i'm wondering if the big muff will give me a variety of more tones.

I have a solid state fender amp. i'm looking to buy a tube amp but I'm buying a new guitar first. I'm getting the RGT6EXFX if that matters as well.

^what guitar to you have? It might behoove you to get a new amp first, rather than a new guitar

the muff is a heavier sound with a little less gain and a little more fuzz, i wouldn't use it for leads without a treble/mid boost but it sounds great for brutal riffing

New guitar thru a MT-2 into a ss Fender does not make sense.

Same guitar thru a Muff into a new amp makes most sense.

Same guitar thru a new tube amp is what I would do personally, and then get the Muff later if you still need it.

what's a small tube amp that you would recommend? I know a 25 watt tube amp is plenty loud enough on 8 to blast over drums, so that's all I really want. I don't need any bigger than 25 watts (even 15 would be good) because I'm living in a dorm room right now. I will only use the amp for practice / playing in garages with people. I have no desire to play a concert or anything else. I just enjoy playing. What does everyone recommend for a small tube amp?

An amp makes up more of the sound than a guitar.. guitar's part has alot to do with the feel of it.. so unless you absolutely can't play on your guitar or it's falling apart or has alot of problems then you should get an amp first..

you shouldn't even waste money on a distortion pedal if you're getting a tube amp.. tube amp + distortion pedal is fail compared to a tube amp's distortion..

save up for a tube amp and a decent overdrive pedal and you should be set.

my budget is less than $650 for the amp new (and 50 watts is the most i would get). i live in lexington ky. i mostly play buckethead, lamb of god, cannibal corpse, black dahlia murder, beneath the massacre, satyricon, and heavier stuff like that. The lightest would be joe satriani or maybe even guns n roses.

I'm using a Peavey raptor from the 90's right now. It honestly sounds great through my amp and pedal, for joe satriani and buckethead. but it doesn't have that heavy bass sound to it. and its not too clean sounding because of the single coils.

Edit: most all peavey's are well built man, you should have no concerns. Even the low end Vypyrs and Valvekings. What was it specifically that concerned you? I'm not necessarily a Peavey fan boi - I really do try to shoot as strait as I see it - but Peavey does make lower cost options for metal guitar that are fairly reliable and road worthy, especially for the price.
