Are these amps any good? I mean I dont know much about this model. I take it it's a solid state amp. I've seen pictures of it and I noticed that the bac was closed so I figured there are no tubes on it. I play a lot of metal as well as blues. Some examples would be, Iron Maiden, Children of Bodom, Killswitch Engage, Judas Priest, Eric Calpton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Dokken, Buddy Guy, etc.

Is it the amp for me?

Would it play those types of music well?

I have the combo version of that amp. It can get a good generic-modern metal sound, but if you really want something that will match the tones you've described (especially Dokken... if you want a George Lynch tone with that thing, forget it lol), I'd suggest you save up and get a good tube head.
