Okay, I have an almost perfect solution for you... My question is: are you prepared to replace the speakers with Celestions?

I did xD.

If so...

Behringer GMX212 V-Tone. I just replaced the speakers, and it sounds great! Really nice for a hard, metal sound.

Yes. Valve King has nice distortion. Best distortion, in my opinion, besides Mesas.

Valveking 112 could be nice. If you're willing to extend your budget a bit then a Peavey Classic 30 could also work well for you, but if not, then the Valveking would probably be the best choice.

The tubes won't really break as long as you take good care of them. They should last you about 8 months to a year, maybe even more if you've taken good care of them (this means warming it up, cooling it down, etc.). I think there's a Tube Amp thread with all that info somewhere on here also.

/thread.

No offense, but those are you're best options.

Stick with em.
