Peavy Vypr, it's that simple.
How many guitar players does it take to change a light bulb?

Twelve. One to change the bulb and eleven to say they could do it better.

B-52 AT-212 or whatever the combo is is a great amp in that range. I've got the head. You could probably swing a nice used mesa for 800.

Don't buy a vyper. It's not much of an upgrade, if any, from a spider..

Check out a 6505 or used 5150.

The V22 can't do metal without a pedal. I've tried one. I thought they were cloned after the Peavey Classic, but they aren't. No amp distortion with the gain all the way, just a light crunch. (unless it was just a crappy floor model, but that was my experience)

If TS wants good cleans and a metal tone he could get a Peavey Classic for everything from cleans to high gain rock then get a pedal to venture into the metal outlets.

Maybe a V55, but it's possible that the floor model had the tubes going out.

I'd even consider maybe a ValveKing 212 Combo, I've heard nothing but great things, from people and in clips. Some people say the ValveKing can't do metal, but the pre-gain at 12 o'clock is plenty of gain for almost anything.

I mean, worst case scenario with any of these tube amps, just replace the tubes with higher gain counterparts...

I think it's got more to do with muddiness and poor voicing more than actual lack of gain.

I say "unless it was a crappy floor model" because it looked new. That and the only "high-gain" V5/22/55 demos i've heard on youtube all use pedals. Anything else only gets the same crunch I heard.

I've heard the Valveking is the same predicament. I still want to try one though. But if TS gets the valveking then he can actually spend quite a bit on a nice dist pedal if he wishes.
