So you want a GOOD amp and GOOD metal Pedal for under $300 bucks.. Your gonna be hard pressed to get a BAD amp and BAD metal Pedal for under $300 bucks...

Up your budget and save some cash and stick with what you got....

good call. the 15 and 20 aren't as good, they don't have as good amp modelling (more like they just don't have the amp modelling).

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

hmmm was looking at the 20w one and maybe Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal so i could get it all for 270 which would be a bargain (just moved into an apartment complex and neighbors are assholes and the complex is threatening to evict me lol)

no, stick with the 30 and drop the metal zone. you can always turn the 30 down.

the 30. or if you're really concerned with volume, the microcube (it does have the modelling). but i'd have thought you could just turn the 30 down, to be honest.

The amp is SS so it will sound the same at 1 or 6 so there is not need to buy something smaller. And modeling amps do not like pedals so it would make things worse and your buying a ROLAND aka BOSS so you would be basically buying a pedal to mimic the same tone that is already built into the amp.
