Ok so I've hit a road block. I've been looking at multi-fx pedals like the RP355, the Vox Tonelab ST (i think), and the Boss ME-25. Went into a music shop today and the guy recommended the Vox because of the preamp tube. Both are priced @ 200, the boss and Vox.

The music i play is stuff like Matthew Good, Oasis, Billy Talent, Alexisonfire, Sum41, and classic and hard rock tone stuff.

Basically, i want to give my clean a nicer effect as the tone is already there, and my drive channel is excellent, a sort of overdriven sound.
Good tone is must for me.

My amp is the Blackstar 5 watt, with Dr.Z tuned to -5db (yes i know, im in an apartment) and through a Tele deluxe.

The main effects i want are chorus, reverb, delay, flanger, compressor, noise gate, to sum them up.
Should i just get seperate pedals if they will keep my tone intact?

i don't really know in what time frame you want all of those effects in, or what you will use them for, or if quality (stomboxes) is better than quantity (MFX). i have a feeling you would be happy down the line with stompboxes. if "good tone is a must" as you say, i would look for single pedals.

you don't always have to go boutique, but thats best bet on what you use.

stay away from Boss and a good chunk of digitech would be my advice.

what i do when i am planning to purchase a pedal is judge how much i will be using it when playing to how much it costs.

if its a flanger and you only use it on one song of a live set, i would go with a cheaper one. but if its a chorus pedal and you are going to want it on most of your cleans, and use it a lot i would spend more because it has more of a value to your tone.

sorry i don't have much advice between the boss and the vox, but i hope i at least helped a little bit.

MXR is middle of the road as far as i see it. you will see musicians even well known with cheaper pedals (boss, digitech, mxr), and people on here with $1,500 worth of pedals on a piece of plywood. i have had a few of their pedals over time and they have proved to sound good, and be durable. i had an old 80's chorus that was MXR and i liked it. i think i still have it somewhere. i will have to look for it.

for Billy Talent, a treble booster would be helpful, Ian uses custom Stephenson amps which is why his sound is so bright. He also uses a lot of compression, and sometimes, fuzz. While I don't know if Ian uses a treble booster, I've used one to replicate their sound and it helps since I can't get my hands on a Stephenson. Of course he also picks out the his strats based on how bright they sound.

I don't know the specifics of the pedals, but I would take your amp in and try out those pedals. Try out the settings I suggested and see what sounds best.

MXR Makes some pretty great stuff. Way better than Boss, and the prices are the same. IMO the best widely available pedal company is electro-harmonix, but their stuff is pretty pricey depending on want you want.

Reverb- little much for reverb, I just use my amps spring reverb but here ya go. Pretty versitile. I like. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/electro-harmonix-holy-grail-nano-reverb-guitar-effects-pedal/620031000000000?src=3WFRWXX&ZYXSEM=0&CAWELAID=340921548

Delay, Digital- only boss pedal i like http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/boss-dd-7-digital-delay-guitar-effects-pedal
