how much power do u want? with under $400 u're limited to small tubeys. peavey valvekings go for $400 though...
Really the question is, are there tube amps under $400 considered to be the best of something?
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?
the valvatronix isnt tube...

i'd say the Blues Jr but it depends what you're using it for (BJ for rock and blues)
yea the valvatronix is a hybrid amp

i'd save more money

Dunlop's got the right idea

i <3 breakdowns
Vk then. and get a booster pedal for heavier stuff. ull just barely get to early tallica stuff though (kill em all stuf)
yeah the valvetronix isnt a tube amp, at least not all tube. i think it has like one tube in the preamp thingy but it wont sound like a genuine tube amp.
The Vk is unreliable and often has problems (ive also heard that it sounds like a SS amp...)

I'd just get the BJ
you should look into a peavey ultra 60. you can get one for around 200-300 and it sounds badass
