There is no best, only best for you. Orange TT is a good choice, also the Laney Cub 12. Both are worth a look.

Where are you located (closest city will do, don't need specifics, just availability and currency)?

Specific examples of some sounds that you would like (jazz and metal are both pretty broad)?

Willing to go used?

What is your current gear?

We need some info. to help you out.

You live in Lowell?

I went there when I went to MA with my best friend for a holiday. I live in the UK.

For $600 you can easily buy a Peavey Vypyr Tube 60. It'll cover the wide, wide range of tones you need, better than pretty much any other modelling amp.

EDIT: +1 to a used JSX if you can get a cab with that.

Go to performance music in Woburn, they'll have a stash of stuff in that price range and brands for those genres. If not: I'd go Peavey JSX for that kind of versatility.
Charvel So-Cal (SH6TB/N, killswitch), Jackson RR5FR (TB6/Jazz, Drop C). Joyo pxl pro.
Loop1=Crybaby from hell, Boss PS-5, Seymour Duncan 805 or Green Rhino, EQD Hoof or Earthbound Audio Super Collider. Loop 1 into ISP Decimator II.
Loop 2 (FX loop)-Line6 M9, TC Spark Mini. Loop 2 into mxr 10band. All into a Peavey Triple XXX 212, Ibanez IL15.

The Orange probably won't cover that wide a range of tones. I'd look into a Marshall DSL401 combo (not the newer DSL40), the Peavey JSX is a good grab, you could try a Carvin V3, the Vypyr Tube is a good choice, Line 6 Vetta/Flextone wouldn't be bad (Flextones can be had super cheap), you might could find a Mesa Mark III for that (I have one near me for that), or a Mesa F30/50 or DC Series. Laney TT series would be okay. Maybe a Krank 1980. Lots of options, the Orange TT would be low on my priority list.

This, 8' speakers are just so rough on my ears, if they aren't in a bass amp I just don't have time.

Can be made ok with better tubes, speaker and some mods. A JCM2000 DSL401 will eat it for breakfast. Just get one made after 2003.

Not as good as the DSL401 that I mentioned. It isn't bad, but it doesn't live up to the JCM2000s of old. You ought to look at the recommendations folks have been throwing at you, some great amps at a bargain.

Carvin Nomad. 50W EL84s, two channels, 1x12.

You can't get them at Guitar Splinter, tough to find them outside the US. Serious butt-kicking do-almost-anything amp is relatively lightweight and portable, but will hold its own in some extremely loud professional gigging company.

if you look hard and maybe saved a little bit more you could land a mesa MKIV combo.

the main thin is that you really do not want an 8" speaker. there are reasons that 12"' (almost always) is a staple in music today.

You ho that thing out, don't you?

Can't blame you though, a buddy of mine used his for everything from Clapton to Van Halen. I feel like it might struggle to cop thrash tones by its lonesome, but a good boost ought to do it.
