Ok, so I'm looking into buying a new amp for harder rock, metal etc. (A7X, Deftones, BfmV, Tool, Incubus, etc.), and I'm wondering if you guys could suggest a good Tube amp betwen the range of 65 and 80 watts. Just the model and whether it's a combo or a head.

Also, I've heard that the Peavy XXX 120 2x12 sounds quite good when the tubes are not being pushed, which is uncommon for a tube amp, but would that me more worth loking into?

Thanks in advance

I'd say a XXX would fit the bill very nicely. It's great that you can play them with full distortion at low volumes. The 5150 is also like that.

hm, i'd probably say either a traynor ycv 50 blue + a boost.

the XXX would be good, but i don't think you'd like it much. it's worth a try. i have on and am happy with it, but it just doesn't sound like your kind of amp.

to follow up on the marshall suggestions, check out splawn, they modd the marshalls.
