So I was thinking about getting a Valveking and trying one out at guitar center, but searching through the forums it sounds like it doesn't exactly live up to the name. This was in the back of my mind too because it sounded like something was missing, and I was really hoping that it was just the audio quality.

Anywho, I'd like the option for more gain anyway, so I'm wondering, since there are not any high gain valve amps in the price range, what would be good to buy used thats mid to high gain with a good clean channel that won't piss off the people directly (duplex) next store? Maybe a hot plate or some kind of power suck would be a good idea for Christmas?

I was thinking about a Carvin Legacy but I feel thats too much of a jump and since I'm selling my Vox ADVT 30, the Carvin will be the only thing I'll play out of.

Music I play:
Weezer, Megadeth, Steve Vai (I try too anyway ), Barenaked Ladies, Metallica, music from the band I'm in, etc...

Gear: See signiture

Thanks a million guys

Try a Randall RG50TC. I think it's around that price range, and it's good for high gain stuff. So is the B-52 AT something or other.

B-52s are really nice overdrive amps, like really. I dont own one, but my friend can get huge distortion out of it. I haven't used that randall before, but the only problem with the B52 is their tubes break real easily.

I have a B52 stealth series half stack that i got used from guitar center for 300 dolars and it sounds amazing. I can get insane gain from it with no effects and it sounds great at low volumes and when its cranked which is pretty damn loud.

^ I didn't know that the Stealth Series were all-valve as well. Those might be worth looking into, too

The B-52 Stealth sounded good for metal. Not sure about the clean channel though...

My apologies for the double post, I just need to know what I want to buy so I can get it after I sell the Vox for my band : /

peavey windsor maybe if you don't need cleans?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
