Ok, at this point I'm getting really close to pinpointing my next amp. I have narrowed it down to three. I could go for the AD50VT (Cheapest ). I could spend a little more for the AD50VT2-XL . Out of those two the thing I am concerned about is the bigger one being more amp than I actually need. I don't gig or anything. Would the quality be about the same?

The third amp I am considering is a Fender Blues Jr. but the one I found might not be what was recommended to me previously, so i don't know. It would cost more than usual, so I would probably have to get a little cheaper guitar, considering I'm buying both at the same time.

I play a wide variety of music but I want to get into some more metal. The three are within my budget, with the exception of the Blues Jr. but I would think it could be worth it to cut into my guitar budget to get an all tube.

The Valvetronix amps are all very nice - the XL would be more your thing if you wanted to play metal. You'd be right in saying it'd be a good thing to extend your budget for a valve amp - I'd look into the Crate Palomino series, with an external OD pedal to get some Metal tone upto about RATM. The tone would be a fair bit better than the Valvetronix amps but without as much versatility.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

Well the Blues Jr is for clean/classic rock stuff, you can use a pedal for gain, but you could also buy an amp made for metal.

i've a Vox AD50VT, its not too good for metal but when i got some 81's for my guitar it really has changed so much, i might change the tube preamp too
