Well, my amp head kind of... died. It's in the shop right now, and since it's an older amp I thought that it may be a good idea to eventually look into a better, newer high gain head. So I'm looking for something that's preferably less than $800, tube head that can do lots of distorted chugga-chugga type sounds, but also can sound good with lower gain settings too. Any reccomendations? Cab i'm using is a Crate BV412

All the Peaveys that guy said, a Mark IV if you get lucky enough to find one used for less then 800. Carvin also makes some nice amps for that price.

It pushes the budget a bit, but a few months ago, I plugged into a Bogner Brixton (from their custom shop international series) and was amazed! I don't usually need a whole lot of gain on tap, but this thing screamed! It had loads of personality as well. Plug and play type amp with only a couple nobs on it. Variable power modes.

I don't remember the prices they're going for but Egnater just came out with some higher gain amps you might look into. They're pretty sweet no matter what you're going for.

Let me know when you find a Mk IV for 800, I'll suck your dick for it.

Used 5150/6505, Ultra/XXX/JSX.

Fix that Blue Voodoo. They are a nice amp.

The obvious answer is to buy a newer model blue voodoo (assuming yours is an older make)
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

Jet City JCA100h/50h. Great for metal but can do everything else as well, and has excellent cleans, as opposed to a 5150/6505. It's also $700 new. Clips: Death Metal,

You could also have a look at a Carvin V3. All tube, USA made, 3 channels, and modern voicing, for exactly $800. You have to order factory direct, though.

My blue voodoo's a 2005 model. She's in the shop right now, hoping it can be saved.
