Ive looked around at an amp for a while, and my budget is $500. Ive looked at the v18 212, but reviews said not enough gain, for what i want. Now if i got that i would have $300 for pedals, would that get me the gain i need? I'm talking Metallica, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Stuff like that. I play rhythm. Please tell me if i can. Thanks. And recommend which pedals if i can. If it can't then please recommend me another amp in my price range ($500.) Ive searched around and found nothing.

Where are you looking? There's plenty of amps with enough gain for that in your price range.

B52 AT
Peavey Valveking
Peavey Classic 30
Peavey 5150
Peavey XXX
Mesa F-30 or 50
Mesa DC-3 or 5

Some might be a bit harder to find at that price, but certainly doable.

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

Im looking in the south jersey area, if your talking about used. I can order it, unless the shipping is ridiculous.

There's a guy on youtube who plays Judas Priest on a V18. Seems doable, but other amps on your list will probably do it better.
