Ok ive been playing for abit over a year now, and id like to upgrade my amp, i was sucked in, not knowing what i was doing in my niave days of thinking well known names meant quality and brought a marshall mg 30dfx, i thought it sounded good, until i heard some real amps .

I dont have any idea really on what to look for, ive heard alot about tube amps recently. The amp will only be for at home practice, and some small sessions with a few friends. so i think ill need 50 watts max.

I almost entirely play metal and all the subcatergories under it, and have an ibanez 350ex, with emg 81/85s installed, with this is mind, my budget wont be massive, id say around $500-700Aus.

Any suggestions thanks.
