i have about 650 USD to spend, i play mostly metal, death metal, heavy metal usually songs that contain lots of distortion, i used to have a line 6 but i bought it used and it crapped out on me, and from what people say is that Line 6 sucks, it dosent matter if its a combo amp or a half stack, just as long as it has a bass mid and treble control, overdrive/distortion is NOT nessesary since i have a Boss Mt2 Metal Zone distortion pedal, but if it has an overdrive switch its ok, other added effects would be nice but not necessary, it'll be used for small gigs for bars around 2500 sq. ft. houseng about 180-280 people. so with that any suggestions?

peavey valveking 212 its a lower end tube amp.
with a distortion pedal and an eq pedal you can get good stuff out of it.

i fell in love with mine and i tried a few different amps the spider valve series, a vox i forgot which one, some fenders but they just didnt work for me so i had to go with the valveking. i cant wait to get my new pedals tomorrow to throw in front of it.

please do the world and yourself a favor and dont go get another line 6.

The Metal Zone is a horrible pedal and practically useless live due to the amount of mids it kills - if you're getting a new amp then you want one that can pretty much handle your distortion needs on its own.

Have a look at Bugera, they should do the job you want although the best use of your money would be a used Peavey 6505.

thats strange cause the metal zone does fine....but i was told by someone that you know what your talking about lol. anyways i heard of bugera but the ones i found were around 1200.....kinda out of my reach right now, and the valve king that someone said sounded pretty nice but ill have to take a closer look at it and actually play with it at the guitar shop

He's quite correct, the Metal Zone is in every way a tone killer. The scooped fizzy tone doesn't cut it for live playing at all. You may want to check out Bugera or B-52 or something. Supposedly they do the metal thing pretty well.

Seriously, you'll hear the difference once you play through a decent amp...I don't know anyone who'd touch a Metal Zone in a gigging situation.

The Valveking isn't quite what you want out of the box, but stick an EQ pedal in the loop and an OD in front of it and it'll do the job.

ok im sold....luckily i found the bugera you were showing the "333" model and the valveking, the bugera did the job REALLY well, the sound was MUCH better than any Line 6 amp i used in the past, and yeah i got home and the metal zone didnt produce the same sound that it did with the line 6...... it had a very fizzy sound...so now i guess my next question what distortion pedal would be best...and yes i bought the Bugera its sitting in my living room right now plugged in...THANKS FOR THE ADVICE!!
