Sorry to hijack this thread, but I think that's better than making a new one. I'm looking for a high-gain tube amp too but my budget is $1000 usd.

Errrr..... Valveking stack? You aren't gonna get a marshall for 1000. You could get a JCM head only for about 900

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

check out the randall heads with the tube pre and ss power amps
or randall rh50t all tube
other than that, the B 52 would be your best bet

valveking probably. Unfortunately


He said high gain. The valveking may be a decent budget amp, but for metal a b-52 at212 would absolutley destroy it. In my opinion an all around better amp, and one of the best high gain tube amps youll find around 700. If you look used you could find something great, like a 5150 combo off ebay which would be great for heavy music, but cleans arent too great. The b-52 at series has a reputation of being a great value and having alot of diversity in the tones it can make.

Exactly what I was going to say.

I hear the traynor mentioned can get a good bit of gain too. Definatly worth checking out.

+1.

They're pretty much what I had in mind too - you won't get better than those three without spending some serious cash...
