So its time to throw my Marshall MG15FX in a lake (not literally ) and look for a new amp. I usually play hard rock and metal but i also play classic rock in my band. I have been looking at a few amps but i never have the time in between work to go to a guitarcenter to try a few amps out. I AM on a very tight budget so please don't criticize me that i can't afford a triple rectifier or a jcm800 head. My guitars are a Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe, which took me over a year to get the cash, and a Silvertone SRK1. My limit is $400 and I am willing to go used and i only buy in stores not online (i live in north NJ if it helps). So basically I'm looking for a versatile amp at a tight budget

Hm... Jet City JCA20 sounds like it would be good. Other options: Bugera v22 with a boost, Bugera v55 with a boost, Vox Night Train (no experience with this)

EDIT AGAIN: Read the OP and it seems you don't like online sales. Disregard these then.
Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

"And give a man an amplifier and a synthesizer, and he doesn't become whoever, you know. He doesn't become us."

Holy crap, check this out!

Jet City is very goods with the Hard Rock and Classic Rock. Howevers you kinda need a boost to get it into metal. I recomend a TS or a MXR Wylde OD.

+1 Maybe toss a Bugera 1990 in there as well.
Or a V55 even without the boost.

Vox VT50 or VT100
which is either a 1x12 combo or 2x12 combo.
This amp is great it has 8 footswitchable channels that save in the amp and heaps of different amp models for different genres/sounds.

I was in the same situation as you basically. I'm getting rid of my 22 watt amp to make way for a bigger amp I can use with my band and I got the VT 50.
