My budget is around $500 - $700

I play Prog Sludge Metal (Mastodon, Burst), so I love my cleans as much as my dirt

I'm also trying to get a delay and some modulation


Also, I've tried out a used Line 6 40w Spider Valve ($349) and a Bugera V22 (forgot the price but I'm sure it's about the same price) that I might get effects with if I get it. Which one is a better deal?

Any Suggestions is appreciated, thanks!

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

Hey, is 22 tube watts loud to gig with? If not I might get the 50 watt version

The bugera's distortion does not lend itself well at all towards metal. Maybe if you use a pedal, but it is just not what it is geared towards.

maybe check out a valveking or the 6505 112 they're within your price range and you probably would get the sound you're looking for.

True, I like the Bugera better for some reason though, I thinks it's more tubey. I'm basically trying to get a sound like this: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9081600/Secrets%20Beneath%20Sands%20and%20Above%20Clouds.mp3 (Skip ahead to 1:10, I'm using Amplitube 3 btw)

the last two may need a dirt pedal to get all the tones you're after, but with $400-$450 left over, that shouldn't be a problem.

I had a Line 6 spider 3, I will NEVER waste my money on their products again after that. Their craftsmanship sucks so much it's unbearable.

EDIT: I play some mastodon and alot of between the buried and me. With whatever amp you get, get an EQ if you don't have one already

The one i played was the spider VALVE amp, not the III, and those aren't as bad as many claim, but again wrong model lol. I have 2 shitty practice amps, a microcube (broken), and an ugly sounding semi functioning solid state hlf stack. you gett the picture lol
