Jet City JCA50h and a 2x12 cab, but it might be out of your budget.

Peavey Vypyr tube 60 1x12 combo would be a good choice also.

Most people here are going to have no clue what amps are readily available in Thailand and what the cost of each may be, so you could help us out by telling us whats available within your budget, then we can advise from the selection

Go for a Blackstar HT-5 or HT-20 (used), or a Hughes & Kettner Tubemeister 5 or 18 (used).

If that's what you want to do, you might be better off with some decent headphones and something like:

Can you wait untill they restock the vypyr 30? It will handle metal much better because of the 12" speaker vs the 8" speaker that is in the 15 watt.

No problem, I just hate to see you buy something that in 3-4 months you are tired of and want something new.
The 30 watt vypyr sould have you covered for a while.

The 30Watt Vypyr is a great choice. Effects and stompbox effects and great tone.

Don't even think about the Line 6 Spider. It sounds all fuzzy and fake and disgusting.
