I was looking at the Boss MT-2 and ML-2 but they don't look like what i'm looking for.

What amp are you running through? Sometimes pedals don't work well with certain amps, specifically modelers.

tbh get a valveking (or other tube amp) used. I got my VK for 230 and with the right pedals you can get much better sound than a modeler.
My gear:
PRS SE custom

Peavey VK 112

===JJ power tubes

i'd actually have to agree. I think this Vypyr craze thing is over-rated when you could get a used valveking and mod it to sound good.

Second thread in a row I read that is full of fail.

O well when the 60w and 120w vypyrs finally come out, they are tube amps. How would that be?

Why would you need a 60w tube amp? The only reasonf for having a tube amp with more than 40w is if you gig. Otherwise, it's too impractical and sounds shitty at low volumes-- which you need to use in order to not piss of your parents/nearby residents

Could it possibly have to do with metal being mostly preamp saturation and the avoidance of power amp saturation... Hmmm possibly so.... Or maybe its the fact that 99% of all metal amps all come in higher wattage (for a reason of coarse aka headroom).... I could be wrong...but im not lol

You're going to be running through a PA anyway, which makes high wattage even less necessary.

The A7X tone is a result of taking extremely high quality amplifies, and then completely stripping them of anything remotely resembling midrange. Any pedal with the word "metal" in the name, EQ'd the same way, will get you more or less the same sound.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
