What is the best amp for Hi-Gain modern metal with decent cleans?
I'm looking to get a new(or used) amp in the middle of the year.. something <$850AUD AUD AUD!!!!!

( Valve please, combo please, under 30 watts )

Thanks!

the alchemists are cool amps, but i couldn't get the drive channel to sound anywhere near modern metal, but the cleans are spectacular. hmmm, krank rev jr? maybe?
main rig:
MIM Tele->VP Jr.->CryBaby->Fuzz Factory->TS808->Carbon Copy->Phase 90->TU-3->Vox AC30CCH+Avatar 212 and Peavey VTM60+Marshall 1960A

Fuzz...It's wonderful and horrible and beautiful and repulsive and so many things all at once.

You could probably get the peavey classic 30 to do some decent metal if you threw in a different speaker and did a eq pedal as well.

Blackstar HT-5 Combo, I played the stack and it was amazing for cleans and rock.. just needed to kick it up into metal with an overdrive.

Blackstar HT-5 Combo + Badmonkey(?) = Heavy Metal?
