i need a gigging amp for under about $800, i play a lot of melodeath, i'm just after an amp with a proper modern very high gain. atm i'm rehearesing with a practice amo, which not only can't take the volume/freg etc, but just doesn't sound as good. suggestions?

Without the loss we can't go on

This. 60W 112 combo. It may be a bit much for practicing in bedroom though.

Yeah look for a Peavey 5150 used combo? I've seen them around 500/600 bucks.
I just picked up a Peavey Triple x, it handles metal really well.
just give me a fender and let me rip

Vypyr 120/60 Tube. Even the SS 75 watt version is great for gigging. The clarity on those amps is incredible.

How much wattage do you need? If you plan on doing bedroom jamming with it as well as in a band, I'd recommend no more than 50-60W max. If your just jamming with a band and playing in large venues, then more wattage is acceptable. But for a tube amp, >50W is just too much headroom for jamming and gigging locally IMO.
