You're not gigging but you want an over 30 watt tube amp? If you're playing anything but modern metal I'd go for a lower wattage amp for home playing.

What genres do you play and what's your maximum budget?

Is Slash/Rhoads stuff the heaviest you're gonna go? If so, I'd get a Vox AC4TV and a decent OD.

I can't recommend anything under $350 for Metallica. I'll let others come in and help you with that but I retract my AC4 suggestion.

ok ill reword this please let it be between 15 and 30 watts probably less then 30


Why are you so focused on getting a tube amp that loud if you don't plan on gigging? The whole purpose behind getting a tube amp is to get those cranked overdriven tones. Even at 15 watts that is going to be way too loud for most bedroom playing. I went through this same thing but eventually settled on the Vox AC4 after trying out several low wattage tube amps.
