What style of music do you play?
Whats your budget?

Do you REALLY need a halfstack? If so we'll be recommending combo's anyway.

Fender Aerodyne Telecaster & Stratocaster

^+1 and agreed. 100w TUBE stacks are unneccesary and hurt you alot more than theyre worth. unless ur going for compensation then i say go for it XD

besides, the VK cab sucks. If you're gonna get a VK get the 50 watt combo, or the head and a good cab.

Answer these. If you play metal there's better amps, if you play classic rock there's better amps, if you use cleans there's better amps (catch my drift).

The vk does everything okay, while other amps in that price range do certain styles amazing. Randall Rg50tc anyone? Peavey classic 30? Fender HRD?

For thaty money, get the Traynor YCV50 Blue. It's a British-voiced, 50 watt all-tube combo. It sounds great, it isn't TOO loud, and it is versatile and reliable.

Kay, so if a VK you guys reccommend the lower combos. My price range is anything under 900$. I play a wide variety of music that goes from metal to softer rock and blues. I need an amp with good cleans, and still has bite. Preferably tube.

Like I said, look at the Traynor. It should be perfect for you. It's 50 watts, and it's under $900. More importantly, it's got great tone and versatility.

not great for metal.

get a used mesa mark IV. I think you can get them just under $1000?

If you want new, take a look at the randall rg50tc, you'll have money left over but it's a good little amp that does metal well.

If you play more classic styles than the randall won't be better, it's great for metal though.

(The mark IV does everything amazing)
