I currently have a distortion pedal and a SS amp.
For Christmas, I'm getting a tube amp and I was wondering if I would need a distortion pedal or an overdrive pedal?

I play metalcore so i was thinking a tubescreamer or something.

For example i was thinking a peavy valveking 8, vox vt15,or vibro champ. Just a small tube amp.

I currently own a line 6 uber metal distortion mostly because it had a noise gate on it.

if you play metalcore then it would be best to just save up for a while so that you can get a tube amp actually suited to metal
periphery/bulb!

gear:
Ibanez RG7321 w/ D-sonic in bridge

Peavey 5150 mk ii & b52 4x12 cab

line 6 podxt for recording

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Yup +1^

The Vox vt isn't a tube amp btw, just has a preamp tube. If your looking to play metalcore, then a 5 watt tube amp isn't gonna do it, it just dosen't have the preamp gain for it.

This.

I'd save for something a little better suited.

I have a B-52 AT112 and with a boost pedal it would be good for Metalcore.
