are there any amps out there than can pull of a good a good heavy metal distortion and decent clean for around 500 usd?
#2
all you need is something with a high output bridge hunbucker for good distortion, and a low-med output neck bucker for the decent cleans

With your price range, go for an amp with really good cleans, and get a distortion pedal. It's worth your while.

You could get one of them traynors, and then buy an overdrive to boost it's distortion channel.
That could work well.

If its for home use, just to practice on, then the Vox AD30 or AD50 should do the trick. If your gonna go gigging with it though, then yeah, id get a pedal and a good clean amp.

Traynors break up rather easily so the clean channel doesn't stay "clean" for long, or at least thats how it is on my YCV40WR

What about a Crate? I havn't really heard the clean channel on one but the overdrive channels didn't seem to bad (I think it was a GX212 or something)

Crate RFX120 + a sustainer/compression pedal.

You could always get the Crate XT120 as well.

I don't like SS Crates, and he can get a decent valve amp for that price too, kudos to you if you love it.

For the price, that's the best SS amp IMO. Comes with Celestion speakers too.
