so im looking for a really good head to replace my valveking. i play mainly play metalcore stuff (miss may i , august burns red) . i only want to spend about $800USD. i want great tone, perfer el34's ,

amps ive been looking into

Carvin V3 head ( seems perfect ) three channels EL34's high gain but still very versatile. but ive never played one and cant in my current situation. cheap new

Mesa Dual Recto. 3 channels, el34 switchable plus....a mesa DR jeez

Mesa Stiletto - 2 channels (i prefer 3) el34 already so super plus...and still a mesa

Blackstar Series One -made by old marshall guys at a good price

marshall jcm 2000 tsl - only problem i have is how loud you have to get a good metalcore saturation and sells cheap

peavey jsx - perfect head but not as much saturation as id like i only want a tad more

peavey xxx//5150//6505, kinda all one trick ponys i want a good clean aswell and i have not been able to get a clean that i like out of these with my limited experiance at GC playing these.

what do you guys think i should look into and dont think im a brand ***** im totally willing to try some no namers aswell aslong as there good amps

Don't August Burns Red use 6505s?

The blackstar is pretty sweet. Bugera might be something you wanna look in to. Check craigslist.

ive played a few bugeras and i didnt like them like mud factories really...and i have been checking craigslist and ebay extensively but its hard to drop the cash when i dont know what i want.. so i turn here to get maybe a majority vote type of deal or like hey this amp you've never heard of is super badass
