Yeah i know another one of these....but ive desided if i want to continue playing the kind of music that i want to play i need a new amp.

HEy all if you didnt already know ive been into alot of sabbath lately and have been experemnting with other music i like. I need a new tuber though as the valve special sounds great, but isnt a metal amp...

My budget is very low, so i wont mention it as you will laugh. but try your best if you can please to come up with a nice cheap tuber XD.

Im looking for something with a good tone for black sabbath like tones, hopefully above 30 watts, and of course is a tuber.

used preforably as its cheaper and i can get a better amp for cheap . Please try your best not to laugh at me if i say "thats to expenisve" as im a poor 14 year old XD.

tHanks in advance!

There is no gain whatsoever. turning the gain up all the way gets a gain that isnt even gainy enough for sunshine of your love. i love the amp, and it does sound good with a OD, but i want RAW tube distortion with tone that works for black sabbath. i mean i can get by with the valve special for now, it does sound good, but not sabbath good.

i would like it to be 200 bucks but realisticly, 350 is the highest i can go. that would take me a couple of months of saving to get up to. unless my parents would let me take money out of my fricken bank account...

Guitar Center used section

Just ask them to ship the amp to a store near you.

Edit: Apparently it won't let me link to the search I did. Just search Valveking and you'll get a bunch of results.

well i'm probably way older than your dad (50) and have a kid myself so no suprise. no problem looking for a bargain that is just wise spending. i'm just saying don't buy something that isn't what you really want because it's cheap. i wasn't made out of money when i first started to play and made some stupid mistakes so i figure i'll try to pass on some common sense to young players now. of course there was no internet or anything like this back then. you have way more choices for equipment at reasonable prices than i did as well.

Boston craigslist has some awesome stuff on it. Trust me man.

You can definatly get a JCA20H combo on the CL, just be patient, wait a couple weeks. Check out the GC in Boston too, they have some great used stuff.

I too am in search of the JCA combo, and Im near Boston. They go up quite often, they just sell really fast and Im never there in time
