I'm aware that this is a subject that is gone over many times, but I'm just finding it very difficult to get answers AND reasons.

I want a tube amp, which can be loud enough for rehearsals and gigs, and if it's too loud for bedroom practice, I can use my SS for that. I play heavy metal, and some clean/bluesy stuff with a bit of crunch, so decent cleans and high gain with good note definition is what I'm looking for.

And I'd be incredibly grateful if anyone could post some sound clips of the amps they recommend, so I can get an idea of the sound.
Funny words.

Well, the title of your thread is right, this has been covered many times.
Not to sound lick a dick, but if you take the time to search this board you will find hundreds of posts asking the same question.

Look into a Laney VC30. Or Peavey Classic 30 with a TS9 or an OD pedal for some gain boosting.
Or the LC30 prehaps, bit more gain than the VC and a more modern bright sound

Peavey 5150/whatever it's called now might do. B-52 AT-112, can do cleans, blues and high gain well. A bluesier/classic rock amp can do metal with the right pedal, too. An OD pedal (Tubescreamer) will give you some OD at quieter levels. Finally, an isolation cabinet lets you crank your amp without being too loud.
