Is This a Good Guitar Set Up for metal?

I got a oscar schmidt les Paul copy put in an EMG 81 pickup on both The bridge And by The neck. I have a peavy Vypr Half stack And have The distortion cranked on The K-Stein option And The best stompbox for metal i could find.... I want to see What u fellow metal guitar players think....

Well the guitar of course could be better, personally I think gibsons are best for metal I know it sounds stupid but the SG's have such good articulation, amazing electronics from Gibson, just change the pickups to some bare knuckles war pigs (the best fullest sounding pickups for metal as EMGS are usually quite thin sounding but not always) and the Gibson becomes a highly articulate high gain easy shred access beast. Now, I'm going to give much constructive criticism on your rig so don't get offended, I'm only trying to help.

Now, the amp is solid, tube amp which makes it great already because tube amps sound better and less sterile than digital amps. Digital amps try to mimic tube amps so what's better, the real deal, or it's wanna be? Soo, the amps good, however I researched it and realized it has settings of various amps which im guessing since it is tube, just changes the way the gain is and how the equalization affects the tone. Now, peavy is known to sometimes give more fuzz solid state sounding distortion on some settings rather than that rumbling thick powerful distortion. So, I would just suggest that you find a setting that rumbles as opposed to fizzes. My analogy to help you get what I'm saying is a good tube amp distortion sounds more like an old muscle car engine rumble where as a solid state crappy distortion sounds like a small sport bike or motorcycle sound, not much rumble, more buzz and fuzz. So find a setting that rumbles. Also, don't overdo the distortion. It's hard to tell just how much distortion you have when you have a lot. It's hard to discern 5 distortion pedals frm one cranked and amp gain cranked because at a certain point there's too much and it makes your sound less articulate and muddy which is bad. Sooo, the general rule is crank distortion on the amp just barely where it slightly overdrives only when you hit the strings hard. That thin line between clean and driven, then use the distortion pedal to drive it further to your desired setting preferably just to the point where a pinch harmonic is achieved and is powerful enough to sustain a bit. Just enough distortion. Now as for the best stomp box for metal, you really should've said which you have, it has a huge impact on tone. The metal muff by electro harmonix is considered among the top 5 best. Number one best has to be a blackstar ht distortion x. Nothing else is on the same level.

So to end with a solid answer, here's my judging scale:

Crappy garbage rig: cheap solid state amp with crappy guitar stock pickups and no pedal.
Decent rig: small tube amp or good solid state amp with mid range guitar and stock pickups cheap pedal
Good rig: good guitar such as a Gibson sg, ibanez, Jackson USA model etc.. Good tube amp or amazing solid state amp such as peavy vypyr, fender mustang stack, blackstar amps, Marshall amps, Mesa boogie amps, amazing distortion such as blackstar, metal muff.. Etc

Amazing rig: the best possible thing for metal is the classics.. An old 70s or 80s Marshall, modded for more gain, no distortion pedals, only natural tube amp cranked and saturated, great guitar such as USA Jackson's, gibsons with better pickups such as bare knuckles, Seymour Duncan's, dimarzios. A good cable such as Mogami platinum, possibly a blackstar series one half stack or artisan half stack.
These rigs are how bands like slayer, yngwie malmsteen, and Judas priest got their tone, no pedals and a modded Marshall.

Now a better rig than yours would be a good guitar such as a Jackson USA, Gibson USA, ibanez, or bc rich handcrafted USA(slash even uses em), a blackstar ht 100 half stack, no pedal, cranked amp, and bare knuckles pickups which are the best pickups for metal. Not much better, but noticably better. Remember not to use too much gain and try upgrading your guitar. If you like to shred, surprisingly fender strats are actually one of the best. Some stacked humbuckers the size of single coils give you higher gain and yet impeccable articulation, and the thin neck is perfect for long shred runs and sweeps, I've even found that the string spacing is perfect and the tension is also perfect for shredding, and if you get it scalloped which is my preference personally, it can help shred even more as you feel no fretboard do your finger won't stick or have friction with the wood causing even faster playing and wider vibrato. A nice American vintage 57' reissue strat can be a huge upgrade especially if you put in stacked single coils. I think that your guitar is the only thing holding your rig back. Sorry for the long essay of an answer, I wanted to help.
