A EQ stompbox for a metalcore guitarist?

Firstly, i have looked around forums and haven't really found this exact answer.

I understand that equalisation is very important with anything really, but was wondering weather tonally and just in general, is it worth slamming money on the table for?

I use a Bugera 6260 head into a crate cab, Use a Jackson DKMGT with Emg 81 + 85 and do not run any other pedals, im not necessarily after a lot of pedals for modulation purposes, just tone maximising really, having an awesome clean and a real clear, yet shredding and distinct sound to the lead. I am very happy with the bugera's tone so in terms of distortion that is not what i am after.

I'd say, if you're not quite happy with your tone an EQ pedal will get you a lot closer to being really happy. I wouldn't say its neccessary, but I think it would be helpful.
Extremely helpful, I'd recommend it dude.

Don't skimp on your EQ and get a shitty one though. I found the MXR 10 band to my liking. 6 band didn't have enough control, and 64-band was way too extensive. Sure, its expensive, but if you do it right you can get pretty much any tone out of it. I can get a pretty solid classic rock Marshall tone (think Airbourne or AC/DC) out of my Peavey Valve King using the EQ pedal. I know that's not what you're looking for, but the level of control it offers you is fantastic. Go for it, you won't be disappointed.

You might want to look into getting a new cab. a 2x12 would be more that sufficient.
