Im looking for an amp, and at first it was a tube combo, but ive seen how cheep i can get a vox lil night train half stack (£190) and with a budget of £300 that would be great! ive also looked at other guitar heads, like the solid state Behringer VT100FXH Virtube. its alot for a bed room but i was just going to get a 1x12 cab for it to keep the power as low as can be. i also looked at the Kustom KG100HFX. also good for me. going onto tube heads...
i looked at the Blackstar HT-1R Head and it looks brilliant! also the VHT Special 6 Ultra Head Bundle looks good too! the Blackheart Little Giant BH5H Bundle looked pleasing too.
i looked at the bugera 6260 212 combo before, it looked great for the price. which out of this bundle is the best one here? and if you have reccomendations the head will have to be no more than £230 if its not a bundle, and the total price will have to be less than £280, £300 at a large push if its an amazing deal.
i play metal, indie, prog metalcore etc. like parkway drive, periphery, arctic monkeys, the beatles, satch, vai, hendrix.

thankyouuuuuu.


*EDIT. i will be selling my current effects pedal - the boss me50 and my amp - line 6 spider iv 30, and buying more pedals like the metal muff, Crybaby wah etc, so i have power to put infront of the amp.

Ill also be using a Harley Benton G112 or a kustom defender 112

Ive also found the jet city Picovalve , is this any good?
WOOOOO I FOUND A JET CITY JCA20H FOR £230!!! i think this is my best bet but - prove me wrong if needed

Out of those for the heavy stuff you play: Bugera 6260

Those small tube amps (except the HT-1 maybe) will do the lighter stuff fine, but for metal they aren't great.

The Blackstar is better quality than a Vox Night Train????

So the end vote. Which is best? Imo its the bugera 6260, the Jet city jca20h with the cab, or the blackstar with the cab. Plus, if anyone can find me a blackstar ht 5h for about £230 that would be awesome

A quality 20 watt combo is infinitely better than a dirt cheap 4 watt quarter stack

It's the one I'd go for out of the one's listed but tbh I wouldn't buy any of them. The JCA20 sounds like a plan for what you will be using it for.

its between jet city and the vox lil night train now, but i noticed there were no comments on the kustom and behringer, theyre probably the worst... i looked at a blackstar ht5 in my range, surely theyll be around a while?

well no because you will need to upgrade the cab and then if you try and then sell that harley benton cab you won't get much for it

The Behringer is just a complete piece of junk with no redeeming features. Kustom make some nice tube amps but their SS stuff is rubbish. That's why nobody commented on them, they weren't worth the effort.

yeah, pretty much a waste of time, but i thought id put them in just to mix in solidstates. so jca20 and cab is my best bet?
