Alright, I feel like an a** for starting yet ANOTHER amp thread, but this time it is quite needed. Lately my digitech rp250 has been making wild screeching noises and when it works all of the metal tones sound so damn trebley no matter how much tampering I do. My little Orange Crush can do metal to save it's soul and I am now considering upgrading my entire rig. I can go new, or used but I am trying to stay under $800. So far, I have found a Peavey XXL head for $350, then all i would need is a cab.

What are some suggestions from you guys?

Just for help. I play anything from crystal clean to Children of Bodom to Shred to blues. But mostly I play metal such as Metallica, Children of Bodom, Disturbed, Slipknot, Rammstein, Dream Theater, etc. So basically a lot of high gain stuff. I mostly play at home and will soon be in a band once I find a bassist. A combo will do just fine.
