So, I have a Peavey Valveking halfstack, and I'm getting a bit tired of the distortion on it for really heavy stuff, so what is the best way of getting a good death metal-y kind of tone out of it?

Would something like a tubescreamer push it into the death metal areas? Or would I be better off running a distortion pedal (like a metal muff?) into the clean channel?

Also, how would I be best off boosting my sound when I play solos? A volume pedal, EQ pedal or something else?

Thanks everyone

I say go for a TS808 for what you're wanting to do.
Tons of good deals on Harmony Central and Sevenstring.org.

Thanks for the replies. Will the TS808 push it into death metal? Also has anyone tried the Metal Muff? The top boost looks really useful.

Metal Muff =
its fizzy and the top boost makes you sound like dime.... >.>

i would go for an AMT Fatal Tube, Metalizer, R1/B1/P1
or a Tech 21 SansAmp GT2
