I'm going to be buying a Gibson Faded SG and I'm looking for a good tube amp that would pair up with it well between $500 - $600. Thanks for the help!!

have you tried any tryanors? they're really great for those levels of gain. i know switch foot use oranges, if you could find a good tube orange for that much i'd check it out. possibly a used marshall jcm 800 or 900?

agh, this gets difficult buying new...
a b-52 at-112 is within budget. never tried one, but from clips i've heard, it gets pretty chunky.

i dunno, maybe a vox ac15 and an od pedal, but that might be pushing the budget.

used could get you a lot more for less

haven't tried one, sorry. but i hear the cleans are great, but the drive and more drive channels leave something to be desired.

I rather like B-52's

Just because you had a bad experience doesn't mean that it sucks :]
We can say that amps like the MG suck, because they do.

Switchfoot is a fan of the Orange heads. Normally i've seen them with Rockerverb 100's and a Marshall 1960a cab.

You could try a Marshall Tiny Terror and a Marshall 2x12. The TT and cab will cost you around $750 or $700 used.

I had a TT for a short while and it was incredible with a SG or a Tele.

+1 to Traynors.

I think a Traynor YCV40 would nail Switchfoot easily. A YCV50 Blue would hit anything a bit harder, and be a bit more British, but I can get RATM outta my YCV40.
I found mine used for 425.
