Been playing on this crappy Marshall Mg 30 watt and im looking to buy a new amp

Looking at the Vox Valvetronix AD30VT-XL but im not sure about the whole hybrid thing

And the Carvin Mts 3212 its all tube but I havent heard much about Carvin amps and dont know if it would be very reliable

Would like a nice high gain combo preferrably tube. I enjoy playing mostly killswitch engage type stuff. My price range is around $1000 and im looking for around 30w-50w but I could do 100w and if you know of any effects that sound good, tell me of those too.

Dont worry, XL isn't a hybrid. Its all tube. The AD30VT regular is hybrid, which is why its a little cheaper I believe. I tried one, it utterly kicked ass in my opinion.

Carvins are tough as hell, Steve Vai used them not sure about now, I used to have one, never had any problem with it and it probably had the cleanest clean sound for a SS amp, Definitely go for tubes.

Steve Vai has his own signature Carvin amp now, the Legacy.

The MTS is a great amp in its own right, and easily one of the best (if not the best) amps in its price point (700-800)

My only beef with the Carvin is the knobs, but don't let that stop you.
