dude, there's a TON. you NEED to clarify these things:

your max budget, the tone your after (usually helps if you choose a band's tone that is like what you want), what it'll be used for (practice, jamming and practice, gigging, etc.)

without any of that info, this thread is pointless. this should have been stated in the sticky. otherwise, don't be pissed when a ton of UGers are sarcastic to you or appear to be bitchy.

Poor fella.

Yes, you can get a nice tube ampr for $ 200 bucks, cheap, look up the Crate V18 212. I own one and for the price would recommend it to anyone.

i play metal, like metallica , bfmv , ect...., max budget is about 400$, want to use it for practicing and gamming

alright, well that's not a super great budget obviously, but what are you using right now? i wouldn't suggest going tube at that price, b/c w/o an OD pedal you won't even hit heavy metal tones in the tube amps at that range. i suggest a Randall of some sort, Roland Cube or peavey vypyr maybe. but till you tell me what you've got now, not sure what to go off of. if the amp you're using right now isn't complete garbage for practice/jamming, then i'd wait till you get at LEAST $500 or a tad more so you can get a good amp for your money.

gamming?

Peavey should do it.

No personal experience myself, but as far as i know, it has enough gain for Metallica etc.

Also, an od pedal would help.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Well, the crate is a damn good tube amp but this guy plays metal. For 200 dollars the answer is no. Theres not a great high gain tube amp for 200 bucks. Some people will say buy a valve jr and boost it but I don't like that either. Need to save up more money or get yourself a solid state or hybrid amp. Which has tubes in the preamp and a solid state power amp. If you are using this for your bedroom you will likely be satisfied with solid state for low volume practice over a high gain tube amp anyway. I use a 200 dollar peavey envoy for practice and love it. The modern channel sounds a lot like my high gain tube head.. peavey 6505. But for low volume. But I wouldn't want to be using my 6505 for practice at 2 in the morning. IT's just to loud.
