Right now all I have is a 10 watt Crate practice amp and a digitech multieffect pedal and I'm looking to upgrade my amp to something more powerful. I have a Schecter Omen 6 and play metal (Black Dahlia Murder, System of a Down, Mastodon). One day I hope to get a Mesa Boogie Dual or Triple Rectifier, but I don't have near enough money right now. Is there any amp or amp/pedal combination under $300 that can give a similar tone or just something good for metal. Thanks for any recommendations.
Roland Cubes have alot of different effects that can help for metal. My friend has one and I'd recommend it to anyone.
Current gear:
LTD MH-301 fitted with EMG 81/60
Ibanez SZ320
Peavey 5150 with JJ tubes
Avatar 4x12 with Warehouse Veteran 30 and British Lead Speakers
Crate XT120R
why not just save up now instead of setting yourself back a couple hundred dollars?

yeah i know, sounds crazy, but if you do so, you'll thank me haa.
