So this is the gear I'm rocking with right now:

Ibanez XPT-700
http://www.ibanez.com/ElectricGuitars/model-XPT700

Deluxe Players Strat
http://www.fender.com/products/search.php?partno=0133000327

VOX AD15VT
http://www.voxshowroom.com/uk/amp/ad15.html

So that's about it. The guitars are fantastic, but the amp sounds worse than a kangaroo fapping.

My budget is about $600... although I can go higher by a $100 or so if I really have to. I'm probably gonna buy used.

The sounds I'm going for... well, the Ibanez is obviously a heavy metal guitar... I'd like to have a nice, crunchy, all-around metal sound. Think disturbed, BLS, etc. I want some "oomph" in it.

The strat has a softer sound. I would love to have a SRV or Santana sound (especially santana).

What would you recommend?

So last year, I put some potatoes in this jar and forgot about them. Today, I found them, and when I opened the jar, there is a puddle at the bottom and it smells like alcohol. If I drink this, do you think I will die, or have I made potato vodka?

i happen to like the sound of a kangaroo fapping


In that case, I can sell you my amp.

But anyways, should I just invest in a fender hot rod and use the VOX for high gain? Cause the high gain doesn't sound awful, just meh.

Would that give me a good enough metal sound? Or would I be better off buy a metal oriented-amp.

You're most likely not going to get a good metal oriented amp with the versatility to do lower gain stuff at that price. You could get a used Hot Rod like said and spend circa $150-250 on a awesome high gain pedal to use over the clean channel.

edit: my recommendation if you were to go that rout
