I've got an ESP LTD Deluxe M-1000

I've always admired Kalmahs early album tones (lead guitar)
And I just got a $!#% load of insurance money for someone hitting the back of my car...
But before I blow a good bit of money, this is what information I can offer

Price limit - 600$ max (I probably wont be buying new, a used on ebay one will do fine)
I don't want a monster of an amp that weights 100 pounds, a nice home amp will do fine, i'm just looking for the TONE
Also if you have any suggestions on pedals, throw 'em at me!

what I mean by that is "Yeah, this amp + this pedal = melodic metal goodness!!"

Here are some examples of what I'd like to get close to

Hallow heart
they will return (<3 the solo)
both are by kalmah

Help me UG community!

Tone is in the fingers.

What you really need is a new amp.

(Anything I missed?)

I have been hearing about MG amps lately. I have heard good about them, but only a few times have they been talked about here.
