First off, I apologise, as these "which amp" threads
are bunk, but I'm having some troubles.

As the title implies, i need a head. I've been looking
into these two, as i like the tone i've heard
from them.

i'd like to keep my budget <$800,

i play post-hardcore (The Subtle Way, Protest The Hero, Lights Below).

The Valvetronix is cheaper, but my cab is 16 ohms, so i'd have
to mis-match, it should be fine though (?), I feel it has more
features that I'd like (Modelling, Noise Gate, ETC) but I'm afraid
it'll sound very digital at high volumes.

The other guitarist in
my band has the VK, and i love the tone i can get out of it,
but i'm tight on money (no job), and i dun wanna look
lame having the same head as him (=])

Other suggestions are appreciated aswell.
thanks in advance, and sorry again.

IDK What to say.
Try both. I have a VT and its pretty nice. IDK if the VT-** is for your style. Try the VT-**XL
just try around.
best of luck

i would like to try both, but the only
places that i know that have these, are
an hour away from eachother.

And about the XL, i don't need that much gain,
I don't use much, i keep it around noon
on the VK

I played the 1x12 earlier today, i loved
it, but that alone was $650, and the dude
at the store said they have never ordered
the head before.

look online

you can get the head for 600$ new

or look into a used one

The AT60 is $360 right now. The AT100 is like $500. You can order both from GC or musiciansfriend.com

I'm not a Valvetronix fan but I am a VK fan

Maybe check out the tube Vypyrs when they come out or the new 6505 112 combo - both in the $600 range.

or craigslist.
