im looking to buy a new amp, preferably a combo tube, around the 30-50watt range....

budget: willing to spend around $500-$800

what i play?: i play mainly metal... think Pantera, Metallica, Lamb of God, Slayer etc..

gear: i currently have an epiphone les paul goth studio (will switch to emg's in the near future), marshall mg15dfx (will b selling), and a peavey rage 158..

ive been playing for 3-4 years and would say my ability's would b at an intermediate level...

Most people are going with one of these new from what i've read...I know the valveking can accomplish those artists and im pretty sure the palomino can (only played on for 30 minutes or so)...
Peavey ValveKing 212 or 112 Combo Amp
Palomino V3212 30W 2x12 Combo Amp

Used opens up alot of options for you as well...
Used peavey 5150 or 6505 combo
Randalls
Marshalls
Peaveys
and others
