I'm getting a schecter with EMG's and i cant afford a decent tube amp for metal, would a behringer vintage tube monster be able to give me a bearable metal tone?
at the moment i have an SS fender champion 110. Its decent for cleans, but that's about it. I am trying to save up but money is really tight for me and this seems to be the only viable option.

You're not getting a Schecter with EMG's, you're getting a new amp. As long as you already have a sufficient guitar.

Cancel whatever orders youve made for a new guitar and sort out your amp first.
As much as you want to get a new guitar thinking it will make playing so much better, it won't.

Save money for a entry level tube amp and get a distortion pedal, then think about a new guitar. If you have enough money for a schecter with EMG's, but your still using a absolute entry level amp, you are making a bad decision.

A bad guitar will sound good through a good amp, but a good guitar through a bad amp will still sound bad.

Most things Behringer make are crap though, sure they are budget pedals, but theyre still crap build

Also, Dont get the schecter with EMG's, they'll sound crap with the fender, theyre not meant for distortion (the amp i mean)

Better to just keep saving and get a good tube amp.

You won't have bad tone if you're using a decent amp. To some extent your guitar won't matter much. What guitar do you currently have?

In that case I would say keep the shecter and just save. You can bear a crappy amp for a while.

Your profile says you have an ibanez RG570EX which is pretty good...

Peavey Vypyr 30w (£149) and Vintage VS-6 (£129) is the best I can do. I know the guitar isn't as good as the Schecter but it is surprisingly good for what it is and will certainly sound better through the Vypyr than the Schecter will through anything for £50
