I know there are loads of threads on this already but i have tried searching. and didnt find much.
Ok, so I have a Line6 Spider III 30 at the moment, It's ok for practice but I'd love a good tube amp with a good tone

I play a mixed amount of stuff
Indie (The Cribs) good cleans and some subtle overdrive.
Alt rock (Smashing Pumpkins, muse) needs to be good with pedals (I have a Big Muff)
Rock (Foo Fighters, Led Zep) need some nice built in distortion/overdrive but I could buy a pedal if I need to.
And some Metalcore/Hardcore punk (Killswitch, Every Time I Die) good high gain distortion again, I can buy pedals if I need to.

I think I'll need like 20w to 30w but Im not sure really. as long as i can play it in my room, at my band practices and at any future gigs.
I'm really not sure on what to get, maybe a Peavy Classic 30?

Budget is about £400, I dont mind if its more as I'm saving up for it.

Thanks

i dont know if a c30 can get to metal well

From what I've heard its good as long as you have the right pedals, a Metal Muff should work I guess or just a good overdrive.
Just found one on ebay, £250 buy it now, I'm tempted
I think I'll try it at soundcontrol first.

Sorry to double post but I need some answers.
Would a Peavey Valve King be more suited for me?

EDIT: After hearing stuff on Youtube, I definitly prefer the C30's tone.
