my decision was to get the fireball but just now i was debating something more versatile.

What kind of music do you play? What's your budget? Can you go used when purchasing ANY amp? What are your needs in terms of gigging/not gigging?

The Switchblade is IMO a more versatile amp than the Fireball, and it cuts through the mix in a band context better than the "Ball" series Engls. My friend has the Switchblade Combo, and he plays a lot of Dream Theater with it; it sounds excellent. Like said, the cleans are better on the Switchblade, so are the mid-gain tones. The ultra channel is difficult to dial in, but can get some great Petrucci rhythm tones that I've heard firsthand. I'd choose the Switchblade out of the two, but look into other amps with that kind of budget. WTF and MatrixClaw both know more about metal amps than I do.

However, Alf, not to be a douche and correct you, but the SB actually has a tube power section.
