what would be a good gigging amp for mainly metal and some hairband music

but heres the catch i HATE pedals majorly

the only amp ive found with enough gains are spiders and i personally like them but i need something with a little better tone

try the peavey JSX (joe satriani signature)
lots and lots of gain, plus a great clean channel on a hi-gain amp (yes! that wasn't a slip)
plus its got 3 sets of eq for lots a different setting opportunities
