best amp that can cover clean to metal tones well? has to be 750USD or less. dont wnt anything with like 120w either so....help...
Peavey Classics are nice, but won't really do a great metal tone without a distortion pedal. They're more of a blues classic rock amp.

Maybe a Peavey Valveking or something?
Some sort of B-52 or valveking would be good
Gibson SG Standard
Gibson Les Paul Traditional
Cort Explorer
Squire Standard Strat rebuilt with Fender USA parts
Squire Tele
Krank 1980
Orange Tiny Terror

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Peavey VK112, with new tubes and a new speaker comes out to less than your total. With a celestion V30, that's 500, a retube is about $100. That's $600, way less than your budget.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
I'm leaning heavily on mesa boogie's... i've heard their cleans and high gain sounds are amazing.
