Is there any good tube amp i can get for under 600$ that is used (prob from ebay) that can give me a good tone and good for metal? I play mostly megadeth/metallica kinda stuff but occasionally rip into maiden and sabbath.
Peavey Classic or Raptor.

Yeh the SICK! bit sounds a bit stupid.

B-52 AT-100 is pretty much your best bet. It's similar to a Dual Rectifier, and it's just in your pricerange new

Otherwise, you could save up $200 more and wait for a Mark III/IV selling for $800 used.
u got any pedals that your gonna be using? or will you be getting your distortion from the amp? i would recomend for the price a peavey 5150. its sturdy and i think u can get one for around 6 .
o ya my **** :
boss gt8
line 6 dl4 delay modeler
ibanez ax
dean markly 1x12 50 watt (one tube in preamp)
Peavey Windsor?
i just got a peavey valveking 112 brand-new for $385 at my local shop, hooked my digitech bad monkey into it, and it friggin rocks!
if you have 6 bills to spend, get this and use the change for a speaker and tube upgrade...
you'll be glad ya did!

I played on it once, it is basically a practice amp with tubes shoved in the amp IMO

Peavey 5150 all the way. It's the best metal amp for the price. You won't get the definition of a vintage or boutique amp, but it does it's job for metal. It is clear and sings when you crank the power section. I bought mine a few months ago for $550. It's an amazing piece of equipment and you will not be disappointed.
Get a used 5150 combo with that money... if I had known better (and if Jamaica had a better amp market) that's what I would've done.

Greg what did you send me??
go for a used 5150 combo from what I hear those things are brutal they are used by many many swedish/Scandinavian death metal bands. You don't have to worry about the quality of a used one that much because those things are build like tanks.
A 5150 at 600 bucks would be a challenge, but not impossible. The 5150 212 combos are going $600-$700 on ebay. Plus you have to add in shipping which is usually $50+. Maybe if he found one on Craigslist, but most people are selling heads, not combos.

You should also check into B-52. Great amps, and is a much more realistic choice.
