Well im currently in a hardcore/metalcore band. and im really sick of my tone and sound.

Mainly because im running with a Marshall AVT-150w and a Digitech rp250.

Im thinking up upgrading to full tube but the vetta proves that good tone doesnt require tube. Most Likely im going to buy used.

Im going to sell the marshall and the pedal But i still currently have to play with it. so i have to get the money,buy the amp, then sell my sh it.

I try to get my tone to sound like/ i want a tone like

- Parkway Drive
- Between the Buried and Me
- As i Lay Dying
- Bullet for My Valentine
- As Blood Runs Black
- Children of Bodom

and Etc.

Ive been looking into a Peavey Vypyr Tube 60 or 120w

My price range is probably around $450. probably cant go much higher

also im going to be playing shows (small-medium venues)

can anyone help?

Thanks in Advance,

so 450 plus whatever you make off your current stuff or just 450? You can probably get more than that out of your gear alone

can you sell your unused gear to up your budget?
can you go used?

You could look around for a used Bugera 6260? It's based on a Peavey 5150/6505, and it has the benefit of better cleans than the Peavey.

Or you could get a B-52 AT-112, which go around ~350 new.

the Ampeg really is your best bet though...I was just curious as to why you wouldn't have more than 450.

Look for a Valvestate 8080, it's the older version of the valvestate series. Sounds awesome for death metal and any (x)core.

60w is plenty IMO but if you really wanna go for the 120 go for it.

if you buy the Tube Vypyr you dont need an MFX, you just need a Sanpera Footswitch.

You won't look like a noob. The tube Vypers sound really good. They may need some PA-help onstage if you're playing uber high volume places, but since the tubes are in the power section you don't get the nasty SS power amp distortion which kills some SS/modelling amps. The effects are cool aswell, most effects, even studio quality ones are digital nowadays, so rest assured they're good.
