Could prolly use one

Also, will it make a difference if I stuck some new speakers/tubes in it? if so, which ones do you recommend.

I play metal

the MXR i good, but dont get a distortion pedal, that will just suck your tone, the eq should be enough to put you into metal territory, if not get a tubescreamer
A distortion pedal will remove any essence of tube warmth from your signal, if you need more gain from the amp either:
a) learn how to EQ your amp effectively
b) buy an overdrive pedal to help shape it a bit more

But realistically it shouldnt be too hard to coaxe a decent metal tone from that amp.
