Im looking to buy a new amp, hopefully a tube amp. I like to play classic rock, hard rock and power metal, but i would also like good cleans. I would mostly use it for home and gigs and school. I was looking at the Marshall DSL 401 and the Fender Hot Rod but is 40 watts of tube power a bit overkill? My price range is roughly $400-1500 canadian. Any advice would be great.

You'll probably need at least 30W for gigs. You won't be able to crank it at home, though.
For your styles, you should look into an Orange Rocker 30 or a Vox AC30 as well.
