I have a valveking yes.But Im selling it to a friend.From what I saved and what Im selling the Valveking for I will have 500-600 USD.I metal and hard rock (I.E. Slayer Metallica,Iron Maiden,Winds of plauge,Dope,Pantera and so on you get the picture.)I dont mind going used.I was thinking on mabe another peavey amp mabe a XXX if I could find one.Or a Randell.

I would perfer it to have 2 channels.Since I play metal its kinda obvious that I want nice tight distortion.But I also want nice cleans.For instance the intro to My curse nice clean intro then it goes to heavy.I hope Im not to confusing.Any and all help is good!Thanks in advance guys.

if you can get $700, there is a Randall RM50 Combo with the Blackface and 1086 modules on ebay.

The Peavey XXX is a nice amp for the bands you listed. You can't go wrong with it really.

The Bugera clone is also something to look into: 6262 (Peavey 6505/5150 clone) 333XL (Peavey JSX clone) and the 333 (Triple X clone)
The 6262 has nice tones, but the older models have a tendency to break down. The 2009 issues have been improved drastically, apparantly.

Do you need to gig with this amp?

The only problem is that buy the time I get all the money together That thing will be sold.My friend is buying the amp in about a month.he is giving me 350 for the amp and I got about 250.I could prolly get a little bit more but not much

Edit: as response to the Randell on ebay post.

well if thats the case, then you might want to try something else. But if you happen to have the money and see a Randall MTS amp for sale somewhere, then jump on the deal b/c it is really great amp. I have the RM80 (RM50, but two speakers), and although i haven't heard it yet (blown tubes), it is a really nice amp. There are some pics on my profile page if you want to check them out.

Good Luck.
