So i've been reading around and the only decent amp people seem to suggest in this price range is the valveking 112 but then they say you have to do all these mods etc to make it sound good. Just wondering if there are any better?

EDIT: I should have mentioned i play a lot of metal, a lot of solo stuff, such as Vai and Satch, rock, hard rock, blues (quite a bit). So yeah, probably needs to be pretty versatile. I don't want to lose sound quality to versatility though.

IF you can get your budget up to £500 you should be able to get something like a Hayden Mofo

I have a Blackheart Handsome Devil and I love it. I play rock, everything from bluesrock to heavy metal. It does metal just fine, just use an extra distortion pedal.

TC Electronics Dark Matter distortion
Harley Benton 2x12, with Celestion V30s
Laney Ironheart 60w tube amp

£450 will get you a Peavey JSX Mini Colossal.


I understand that's voiced differently from your regular JSX.

Not for metal.

It's hard to get a low wattage tube amp for metal, so you're probably better off buying an amp for your other genres, and then getting a pedal for metal.
Wait.

Yeah i'll probably be running pedals through it anyway. Would you recommend the amp for what i play as you own one?

What's wrong with the MoFo? Apart from being a bit over the price specified? I know a few guys with them and they are wild about them.

It will do metal... but you'll need an OD to get there.

Also... the Hayden Mofo is a pretty good and versatile amp.

I say you could get the Valveking used, swap the output transformer and speaker, and you'd have a versatile metal/rock machine.

Also consider the Vypyr Tubes.
