but i hear they ar wicked and beter than solid states, and my SS is starting to get really weak and old, (my guess is its over 10 years old)...and i just plain old am getting tired of it, i would like to get a new amp, and i think a tube might be better...it woul dhave to be something for a good metal tone, and blues tone..cleans arent that important, i only need like 30 or 40 watts...maybe not even that...just for bedroom practice, and maybe a gig someday

any reccomendations?


and i think i heard someone say you should use distortion pedals?...so...would my Zoom 505II effects thing be bad?

im not completley sure yet, i was hoping under 500, but for something decent i realize tahts not possible...but maybe i can get 150 bucks for my amp i have right now, and then i would save..assuming i get another job in a few weeks lets say:

around 500-700 canadian (if i could get one for cheaper, tell me about it)...and my options are limited because i cant order of the net. As far as i know, my options are Roland, maybe Laney, Crate, Traynor, and Fender...maybe a few more, but im not positive. (and i dont know what or if any of those i meantioned can be bought as tube amps)


EDIt: and Marshall's..

hm, for that much, you cant really get blues and metal in the same package.

you can either get metal from a peavey XXX or 5150 combo. or cleans and blues from something from fender.

you could get metal from a laney also maybe.

hey have you considered any of the Marshall AVT models? I have a Marshall AVT100 and its a really good fix if you cant afford a tube amp. I play a lot of metal and the amp does blues very well too. I picked one up used for $500.
