Which amp is suited for an A-tuning?

Title says it. Which amp is suited for playing guitar in A?
Right now, I'm using a Roland Cube-x30 and it just doesn't sound good. The amp lets out more of a buzzing sound that doesn't really sound good.
Can you help me find something that might work?
I want a sound that is metal Metallica-Slayer-Bloodbath-ish. Is it somewhat possible to find what I'm looking for?
I have a budget of ~2500dkk (336 euros, 438 USD, 275 GBP)

If you need anything specified, ask me.

Thanks in advance!

Really nothing in your price range, IME. You might be able to find a used Peavey Ultra which would be pretty good but you'd probably have to wait a while for one to pop up. I'd just deal with the Cube for now and save up longer if you can't find one of those in your price range. Unfortunately, low tunings are really tricky to deal with and you kinda need the right amp for it to not be a mushy, inarticulate mess.

Looking at your gear sig I'd suggest a different pedal and some pickups, which would fit into your price range. For your budget finding a nicer amp, which would have to have enough wattage and be good enough to articulate and push those lower-frequency notes, would be out of you range. Either save up, or put the money elsewhere in your rig.

Do you have a used market where you live? You'd do well with a Marshall DSL combo, and then some kind of metal pedal (an HM-2 if you can get one) on top for Bloodbath.
