im also planning on buying a distortion pedal along with the amp, preferably boss mt-2, so what amps go well with that??

Please dont get a MT-2. They really are not worth that much money, a DS-2 is much better

^ ok then what goes with the DS-2 well, it had to be pretty versatile, i am considering the cube 60x but id also like other options, preferably to give a good dimebag tone, or the best possible on my budget, thanks

I truely cant think of a better SS amp than the Cube, to do better than that you'd have to go tube.

sorry, i dont get the difference between tube and 'SS' or whatever you said, and are these tube amps good and in my price range??

tube amps use valves inside to provide sound and power, a good one is around £450 for a decent size so SS (solid state) is better in your price range

you can get an Electro Harmonix English Muffn which has 2 built in tubes and sounds pretty amazing but costs £125 and requires a lot of tweaking

And even then, you've still got a solid state amp. When you don't use the Muff'n, it'll sound like a normal, bland SS.
