should i get this its really a step up from my 15 watt s.s practice amp and id use it for giggin. but ive heard it cuts out and stuff but from when ive used it its been great. Being that it is a hybrid does it really make a difference from a solid state? i would be getting a good deal on this too but im not sure if i should go with this or a orange crush witha good distortion pedal. i will be playing black sabbath, 80s metal, metallica(and justice for all and before) and of course iron maiden

The Valvetronix are great amplifiers. But if you don't need a crap load of tones at your disposal, I'd recommend others. For the same price as the AD120VT, you could get something like a Traynor YCV20 or a Laney VC30. Both amps are great for metal once you boost the front end with an OD.

Again, if you boost it with an overdrive, you can do Maiden and Metallica no problem. I recommend trying some amps out though. My opinion doesn't really matter if you like the tone from another amp does it?
