so i got a vox ad15vt. the distortion from this amp is kind of good. i just want to know how much distortion is needed to have a good heavy tone if i were to add an overdrive in front. or should i just stick with my current distortion pedal.

OD in front will sound bad, and this amp is not made for metal as you noticed.
Modelling amps don't take OD/distortion pedals well.

^+1 if I were you if you can bring it back and get a metal voiced modelling amp instead like a vypyr.
