The Valvetronix amps are modellers, which tend to work better without pedals. They are also mid- and low-gain oriented. If you are looking for modern metal tones, look elsewhere. Peavey Vypyr amps are a good place to start. But just like with the Voxes, there's probably no point using a Satchurator with the Vypyr.

EDIT: That being said, the only way to really find out whether you like the Vox with the Satchurator is trying both.

I love it. My band is really starting to gig a lot but I'm on a very tight budget, which is why I picked up the Valvetronix. Probably the best thing about it is that it still sounds good at high volumes, unlike a lot of modelling amps, which start to lose their tone when cranked.

As anyone here will tell you, the Valvetronix amps are far better than your Spider

However its high-gain models aren't the best (not an issue for me, I don't play metal).

[Edit] As Quailman says, the Vypyr is what you want if you're looking for modern metals tones.

John Mayer, SRV and Hendrix are no problem. But whether you'd like it for Satch I don't know. To me, it sounds good enough for high gain, but some people don't like it for that. They are pretty common, you can just walk into the nearest music store and try one.

I have the Vox Valvetronix AD30 VT, and it's brilliant, you can get a pretty wide range of tones. The effects are quite good too and it's great if you have the footswitch.
