ok, so im out to buy my first "real" amp soon, with a 400-600 dollar budget.
my current amp is a line 6 spider III, but i want a tube amp.
my current choices are either a crate palomino 32 or a peavey valve king 112.
i play an ibanez RG4EX1 (stock) and a digitech rp500 multi-fx.
so, which one should i get? also, if u know of any other good tube amps for this price, please suggest them.

thanks

p.s., i play mostly classic metal and classic rock, like iron maiden, led zeppelin, pink floyd, etc.

I agree, and if you want good tone you should probably get rid of that rp500.

studying it for my major, currently taking (sophomore) organic II, analytical I, and havent gotten below a B in all previous courses. PM/aim if you have a question.

edit: oh yeah, and i would stay away from ebay, because you cant try out the amp first, but craigslist.org is a great place to go, and even local classifieds can have some good amps.
