I was wondering what would be a good amp (preferably a combo tube amp) for hard rock/alternative music. My budget is about $700-1000. I like the tone of bands like breaking benjamin, sevendust, killswitch engage, disturbed, stone sour, etc. Also, I would be primarily using this amp at home to record with into logic pro. Not really liking the sounds of amp Sims I have.

MKIV? (boosts go very far)
JSX? just a good rock/metal amp
rec would be fine two.

i think a 5150ii/6505 is kind of 50%/50%.

you colld look at krank, maybe an orange terrors

If you're in the US, maybe this with whatever small head you settle on. Has a Vintage 30 in it. (60 watts)

V30 speakers are what you should look for as it was mentioned above. Orange amps are great and they were used by stone sour, but an american tube amp if you can find one to fit you budget would be great. something like a peavey 5150, 6505 or a mesa rectifier.

v30's have that kinda sound you're looking for.
You may even wanna get a 2x12" so you can safely use an amp bigger than 60w.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

Vintage 30's are just the standard for harder music, they sound good and their voicing is well suited for this stuff. most of the bands you posted use them aswell.

V30 are a praticular speaker design made by Celestion speakers. The V30 or Vintage 30 possibly are the best speakers for high gain (distortion) applications. Most high end manufacturers use these speakers in their high gain amps. Celestion have other speakers but the V30s are industrial standard for the style you mentioned. These speakers are not the best for clean sounds, but still get a decent clean sound. They sound smoother and remove the harshness of the distortion, they allow the tube amp distortion to sound as it should.
