I'd say no. I've heard ups and downs about the Blue Voodoo, but pre-Palomino and V-Series Crate tube amps are mostly tosh. I could be wrong.

I wouldn't go for it. Especially if you're going for heavy tones. While the amp is aimed at the Hard Rock/Metal demographic, I wouldn't use it for metal. The low end is too mushy and the amp is quite bright. I liked it better for a Rock type sound. The clean channel is a step up from the 6505 though. It's still bollocks though.

Some of those older Crate Vintage Club (or something random like that) amps aren't bad.

I played a crate blue voodoo the other day.
Wasn't impressed. Cleans were shabby, the overdrive the same.

i have a blue voodoo head... and i play metal/hardcore

not to bash my own equipment or anything, don't get me wrong i love my voodoo, but compared to a 6505 it really lacks gain and bass.

i would say if you are into a neoclassical metal kinda thing it would be a good amp but not necessairly if you like to palm mute a lot like i do.

The Blue Voodoo is easily the worst tube amp I have ever played. Granted, the one I played was heavily used, so I don't know how much that affected it, but the tone was muddy and dull. The 5150/6505 is a premier metal amp. Hang on to it.
