I need a new amp for metal/new metal. (an A7X/BFMV tone would be preferable)

- needs to be about £100-£150 (usually 30 watt)
- 30 watt is nice
- Work well with my pedal (boss metal zone) but if the amp could sound good without a pedal that's great.
- heavy distortion & decent cleans (very heavy )

amps i've thought about:
Vox AD-30VT
Roland Cube
Spider III 30 watt

I think you need to save up more and buy something decent, that isnt digitally modelled.

Out of those three amps the best one for metal would be the cube which is what I'd go for if I played metal and was going to buy one of those amps.

Well that depends on what he wants the amp for. Hes going for 30 Watts solid state I assume he's after a practice amp. The Vox and the Roland are perfectly good practice amps.

First, dont get the spider. The Roland Cube is way superiour to the spider, so out of the ones you've thought about, the Cube is my best advice

Guitar: Ibanez SAS32EX

It's got some hi-gain settings. I use cube 60s alot and can get hi-gain sounds out of them. I don't see why the 30 should be any different.

I've got a Cube 30 and I went through a phase of playing that kinda music, and it coped pretty well. Overall, I'd say it is a brilliant amp though, although it doesn't take pedals hugely well.
