So I'm getting ready to purchase a real amp (my Fender Frontman 15g doesn't count) and am looking for suggests to try out. My price range is kinda of large, like $500 to possible $1000. Defiantly going tube. I've heard good things about the Valvekings and I'm interested in checking out an Orange Tiny Terror, not really in the same price bracket but like I said I have a big price range. Anyway I play mostly metal and some classic rock, Metallica, Slayer, Zeppelin, Sabbath, Maiden, Lamb of God, etc. Just looking for some suggestions so I have plenty of options to choose from.

And I've read a bunch of these threads on here already, but felt like making my own.

I don't gig at the moment and won't be in the immediate future. It will mostly be for at home and whatnot.
