Vypyrs are unreliable apparently and dont have enough wattage.

Lines 6's are out of the question.

Vox Valvetronix doesn't have enough wattage.

And apparently Cubes are rubbish.

What can you get for this price?

is the behringer ss or tube?

You aren't going to get good sound quality and lots of volume with that budget unless you go used. I don't know your music style so i suggest either peavey classic 30 or b-52 at-112

Is it a solid state Behringer?

And I don't know where your idea that Valvetronix don't have enough wattage came from. Is 100 Watts not enough for you?

I can drown out my drummer with my Valvetronix on half power.

Try and get a used Laney LC or VC possibly? I got my 35 watt tube Laney for £190 used. It is f_cking loud. Most tube amps with 30 watts or so should do the job.

if the b-52 112 is anyhting like the halfstackt han get it. great amps for metal and they get cleans just as almost any fender.
#8
Since Behringer are so ridiculously quiet, and if you crank you're an ass-hat, I'd assume you only need 30w.

What do you play exactly?
#9
You know that a Vox 30w drowns out a 60W Behringer without a problem? At least if the behringer is as bad as my Carlsbro. (And because we're talking about behringer i think so)

It's a 60W Valve Behringer, so I'm tihnking no chance for under £200.

My 50W Vox is enough, im just asking for my mate

You still haven't said what your friend plays. A Fender FM212 would fit the bill provided you always use the cleans.

He plays Bullet For My Valentine, and heavy stuff like that, so the FM wouldnt be good for it at all :/

Cubes ARE rubbish, like it or not.
Terrible reliablity, sounds even WORSE than a Vox AD (I went there).
The only reason people buy them is because they are literally the only amp for that price that can do metal.

Why must you always think the opposite of me?

I really like Cubes. IMO they have a very nice sound for a SS practice amp, especially for heavier stuff.

behringer generally rates the wattage of their amps by peak while most companies rate it by RMS. what this means is that that wattage figure listed on the behringer amp is probably larger than the volume you'll expect from it.

If it's the "Valve" Behringer I think you're on about, it's actually a hybrid. So you should do fine with 50-100 watts.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

Sooo.... they're not rubbish then!
We are agreed.

I've heard good things about White Horse Amplification - there's a guy on UG who switched from a Valveking to one and loves it. Check out YouTube for clips, although I can't say they make me want to go out and grab one right now, they're rather decent, especially in terms of bang for buck and sound quality. http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/White-Horse-60W-Tube-Guitar-Amp-and4x8-Cab/8A8

My point is that, unless you go boutique, no amp will sound just like a Fender. It's true!

Just get a Cube 30X.

It's not rubbish...I don't know who told you that, but if you're playing hard rock / metal, it does that very nicely, and it's pretty damn loud too.

At least try it out before you discount it.
#30
Peavey Bandit, maybe?
I think it'd do nicely. Better than any digital amp by far. Plus, at 80W/100W, it's about the loudest thing you're going to find for the money.
Nope, no sig here.
