So... I need a new amp. My max price is 600 USD, and I'm looking for all tube. I want a Steve Vai sound. I'd get a Legacy if I could, but the cheapest combo is over 1,000.
Anyway, I need it to cover Heavy stuff like Bad Horsie
Light melodic stuff like Whispering a Prayer
And everything In between http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZSxaL_ELKE

It would preferably have 2 channels, and an FX loop is almost nesecary, although if the amp's good enough I could leave it behind.
Preferably 15-30 watts, no more than 50.
A combo would be preferable, but if there's an amazing stack, let's see it.
Thanks in advance.

Deffinately try that, or craigslist. I posted an add on craigslist saying i wanted a V3 and they sell for $1000, the cheapest reply I've gotten so far is $650 with footswitch and is only a month old.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

There's a 212 (the one I wanted) on ebay right now, but my mom is apparently not letting me take a "loan" from my own bank account, even though I have a job and christmas and birthday are coming in quick succession, and I'd put all the money and more back in about 5 months.

i'd say whatever you do, i'd try to find a legacy at reduced cost. you won't be happy until you get that tone if you're really after vai's sound. if it takes you a couple months to save up, do it.
