i have a behringer lx210 combo 120 watt not loud enough in rehearsals i need something with balls

keep in mind that VALVE wattage is different that Solidstate wattage. so a 50 watt valve amp would roughly be the equivalent of what you've got now. also, the volume has nothing to do with your amp having 'balls', it's to do with the fact that it's a behringer model that isn't really anything but a really loud practice amp.

most tube amps 30 watts and higher will sound nice and fat and ballsy when turned up. if you don't need a lotta cleans, which it seems like you don't, i definitely recommend a 50 watt valve amp of some sort, that way you can crank for nice valve driven metal tones, and not worry about cleans at all. if you have separate master volumes for your channels, though, it's not hard to keep your cleans clean with a 50 watter when cranked.

the new peavey 6550 + combo might be worth looking at, as well as some nice SS amps (not crappy SS ones), such as Randall and Line6 Flextone/Vetta models.

yes, tubes and valves are the same. recently i've been trying to say the correct terminology, which is 'valves.' i think a lotta people like saying 'tube' amps b/c they're running off of vacuum tubes.

and no problemo.
