Hey I'm looking to upgrade to a better amp sometime after christmas this year. I'm really looking to get an all tube amp, but I have some questions about a few. I can get a crate club 20 for 150 bucks, and to me it seems like a steal for an all tube amp, but I want to know if its worth buying. Also, I can get a vox ad50vt used for 200. I know its not all tube, but I've always liked the vox valvetronix amps too. Any suggestions? I'm not really looking to go over $300 right now, but I can do a little more if needed.
My gear:

Fender Highway one Telecaster
Squier Strat (highly upgraded)
Ibanez Rg120
Various effect pedals
Fender Fontman 65r guitar amp
Alvarez rd4102c acoustic-electric guitar

Are you gigging?
What kind of music do you play?

Well I play in a band with a few of my friends, and we play pretty much any kind of rock. The highest gain being Metallica, but I use pedals for that. I mainly want to know if the Crate Vintage club 20 is any good and worth paying 150. It kinda seems like a steal to me since its all tube and has a 12 inch speaker, but I don't know much about them.

Haven't played the Crate, though they do get some hate here on UG.

Look for a used Peavey Ultra combo. About $250, and quite good amps.

Ok I'll look into them. I guess the best thing I can to is go and actually play the crate, so next time I get to GC I'll try it out and compare it to some other amps.
