I'm planning on buying a new amp soon and wanted to stop and ask the pros what their opinions were. I am looking at spending around $500-$600 (canadian). One of the amps that i was looking at was the Crate Flexwave 120 2x12, but i read another thread about them and the response was not too positive, what do you think of this amp? Are there any tube amps that are decent and cost around that price range? Thanks

You could get a Valveking, and then save money later to mod it up.

yeah i was actually looking at those, probably the 112. ive heard mostly good things about them so far, of course its not "superior" but for $500 it seems pretty decent

GTFO UG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

if you want a GOOD modeling amp go with a spider VALVE, vypyr, cube series, VOX advt/vt series, Line 6 flextone ETC.

for tube amp valveking would be good but a B-52 at 112 would be better for metal

I bought a spider valve 112 the other day as a replacement guitar amp after spending three years at university. Previously to this I had a Marshall DSL 50 with a 4*12 cab, which was awesome just took up too much room.

I thought the spider valve would be the best option as my taste in music is diverse in which i play and I wanted all options. I spent a few days playing with the amp as i am between jobs and had plenty of time. I was far from impressed with the amp! I found the interfaces made it really hard to pick up and just play, which I know is not what this amp is intended for but surely this is important.

but my main concern which really made it hard to work around, was every time you change the amp model settings the change in volume was outrageous.

I think the idea behind the amp is awesome and i have no doubt that if you have the patience to set the whole thing up for yourself then it can be very rewarding. But for me this is no stand in for any real full valve amp after all whatever you input into this amp it has to go through digital wiring at some point....

So i made the decision to work out what I would be playing mostly which is blues and classic rock and I bought a Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue; which does exactly what it says on the tin and sounds incredible!!!!!

1991 Fender Strat Ultra

I picked up a bugera 333xl a few weeks ago... This thing is a beast. Has some incredible range to get a tone you like.

Heres are some clips from a guy on youtube...

Try both of these amps side by side if you can and see what you think. Both good suggestions IMO. Peoples tastes vary.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
