I'm buying a new tube amp, but I don't have any idea on where to start looking. Any advice on what amp brands have high gain and are good for metal? Ideally something that would be similar to a Mesa Dual Rectifier.

Price range? What kind of metal? What do you have now?

Line 6 Spider 3 not too expensive and good for metal, plus lets you try out a variety of sounds so you can get an idea of a specific sound you might like later down your path

Too many trolls in here.

If you want a sound like a Dual Rectifier, get one!

There are several high gain amps out there, you need to be more specific, price range would be a good start.
