Alright, I am looking to buy a new amp. I am looking for a good preferably tube combo for around $500 dollars. I play all different kinds of music. I play praise and worship in my church band on Wednesdays so, I need something that had awesome cleans. I also play things like Black Sabbath, Metallica, Rush, and, Led Zeppelin. Metal is also becoming what I play a lot of so, I will need something that can get a good metal sound. Does anyone know any amps that fit my description?

I'd get a fender tube amp. Hands down the best cleans, guaranteed. I think the De'Ville is around 700, and it is a better amp for the money than the 600 dollar Deluxe.
PRS SAS or Gibson LP Standard+
Teese WOF->Analogman Sunlion->Dr. Scientist Elements->Foxrox Aquavibe->Strymon Timeline->Eventide Space
Mesa RoadKing II and 2 Vox AC15s run in stereo

gonna be tough to get a tube amp that versatile for that price.


if you can stretch it, i would get the Traynor blue + an overdrive.


For overdrives, look into Ibanez/maxon ts-9 or ts-808, Boss sd-1. if cost is an issue, the bad monkey isnt too bad.


If you cant stretch it, Crate makes some tube amps ( Palamino series i believe) that i thought were decent, and can get pretty high gain.
