My thread said anything under about 230... not 300.Do you know any other amps under 230?

The Roland Cube30 is your best bet for that price range as far as solid state goes.

Don't go less than 30, though. The 20 and 15 suck. The Microcube is fantastic though.

Tube for $230? The closest good-quality thing I can think of is the Epi Valve Jr.

Or the Blackheart, which is similar but has an EQ:

you're not going to find a good tube amp at that price so you need to go used or save up more for a good amp.

I would suggest a Roland Cube 30 as well...it's in your price range and it sounds good as well.
the cleans are awesome, the distortions are awesome.
however, the effects are so-so in my opinion.

You're less than 20 dollars away from a Blackheart halfstack. I suggest you save up by that much more and get one.

EDIT: Since you'll still need a pedal for metal(with the Blackheart), get a Vox AD15VT-XL. It'll do metal and most of the other stuff you want.

What amp do you have right now? If you save up more you can get a much better amp.

For the amount of money you have, my vote would go to the Roland Cube 30x. The Blackheart or Epi Valve Jr., you could probably talk down to fit under your budget, but you would still need to get a decent pedal if you want either to get in the realm of metal.
