What would be the best amp for practice, but can still do very well for metal and things of the sort?

Most of those 5 watter tubes aren't good for metal. If you want a practice amp that does metal I suggest you try a smaller cube, one that has effects and amp sims.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

Any high-gain amp + attenuator.

Budget would be $500 BTW, and would the Epi Jr. be able to do anything involiving metal?

How about the VK 112, would an attenuator be good along with it?

Sooo how would a Cube 60 be? Would it be drastically worse than a tube combo?

Crate stealth GT-50.

AWESOME amp. lee jackson designed, all tube, gain all day, mesa (dc-5) cleans all day. only problem i hvave with it, is that you cannot get a good blues distortion unless you crank the clean channel... gain channel? dont even think about it.

Look around for a used Krank Rev Jr. Thats the best low wattage tube combo for metal I can think of.

The Blackhearts could do heavier stuff with an OD.

the crate stealth will run you about 200 dollars. you WILL NOT be dissappointed.

Would a Crate Stealth be good at low levels?
