Default My guitar amp died, suggestions?

My Line 6 Spider IV died yesterday, my budget is 375 no over, im looking to create my own sound this time, and not using a modeling amp with a ton of effects. I play a lot of KoRn and they use a Mesa Boogie Triple Recto which is clearly out of my budget.

What i need in an amp.

Louder then a Drummer
Distortion
and good Cleans

Are you the one who just got your dream guitar? Or was that someone else?

Peavey makes some decent Tube Amplifiers in my price range, i have to demo them next time I'm at Guitar Center.

That's just from what i hear cboucher, id have to try them out myself. The sales rep says their not good for Heavy Metal, yet i don't think KoRn is heavy metal at all, i used 6 Gain and Bass and 4 mid 9 treble and it sounded relatively close.

I hope you're kidding. Marshall is one of the leading companies for Solid State AND Tube amps.

Most of the people at Guitar Center don't know shit. That guy shouldn't be helping people if he is saying Marshall amps aren't good for metal.

Too bad you missed the sale where they were selling triple rec Mesa Boogie cabinet with heads for about $350.

Tube amps aren't good for bedroom playing. They only sound best when they are turned up and really lack at lower volumes.
