I have a Vox AD30 VT.

I play metal, rock.....Satriani, Vai, Racer X, Pantera, Metallica etc.

Although I DO like to play clean stuff and softer stuff sometimes.

I can't seem to get a nice metal tone from my amp, although the tone is ok. Would a good distortion pedal fix this? (I have a Danlectro black liqourice).

Or should I get a new one? I could trade the amp in and get a discount off a new one.

depends on how much money you have got to spend on another one if you have got alot then you could trade your vox in but if you don't you could just get a distortion pedal

Why don't you use the pedal you've got with the Vox? Genius.

But it sounds like you should have got a Roland Cube instead of the Vox, but see what the distortion sounds with it.

I have! Its a horrible pedal.

That makes sense then!

Maybe you should invest in a decent distortion pedal, nothing like an MT-2 or something, try a load out, see what you like.
