I have just started to move my tone from my amp and have started to invest in pedals, ultimately generating most of sound from a lovely pedal board. Its early days and I have currently:
Boss ML2 Metalcore
Boss NS2 Noise Suppresor
And a standard cry baby
When testing out the ml2 (today when I got it) I played on a tiny terror and it sounded absolutely killer and was so excited to get back and try it through my line 6 spider 3 hd150 stack. The results weren't as pleasing, the pedal makes the amp sound 100x better than the tone i had before, but it isnt as crisp as the orange head was. Now I am looking to ditch my old line 6 for a REAL amp and was wondering what amps would be good for this?
The tiny terror was a tube (I think) so I will be looking towards that side of the market, I saw the peavey VK100 and was wondering if that would be any good?
The sound im going for is sort of killswitch engage, viatropy, so a menacing metalcore tone!
Any advice is much appreciated!

For breakdowncore I would suggest a 6505/5150
