A new amp would be really helpful, I always found it really hard to get a good metal tone out of an AVT.

A lot of that is just how you play.

I get something similar when I have my amp with these settings:

Gain: 7
Treble: 4
Mid: 6
Bass: 7

and my selector switch for my guitar in the uppermost position.

If I shred like that it sounds pretty similar.

Edit: I don't know if it matters but I have the guitar I do this with tuned to C#

That first clip sounds like a generic lead tone that I can get from any multifx or the Hyde side of my J&H distortion pedal. Crank the gain and set it to your neck pickup.

A little chorus helps fatten up the tone as does using the neck pup.

So Chorus is better for soloing, yes?

I think a chorus is an important part of a pedal board so IMO you should have one. Whether or not you like it for any particular lead sound is entirely up to you. I'm practicing the solos in Santana's Black Magic Woman right now and I didn't like using the chorus with it. But I do use a short delay on that one.

A compressor pedal will help you fatten up your lead tone. The XXX in your gas list would be perfect......The guy's supposed to buy my Super 40 today and i'm having a hard time letting it go it's in perfect shape

for the Malmsteen solo tone, all you need is a strat with a good neck pickup, an overdrive for boost and a Marshall-esque tube amp.

you want a kick ass lead tone? go for marshalls, older 80s tone is still the best imo.\
or just add some lite chorus, phaser and delay in 3/16 time and pan it if you could.
