willing to go used, but no online buying. i was looking to the roland cube 60 or a Valveking 212(used). this is going to be my first "real" amp. im open to more suggestions.

i play all styles, so a good clean sound and a thick distortion are a must. on-board effects would be nice too, but arent necessary.

Cause there music is heavy.

There are so many instances where you're wrong, like now. There aren't any good marshalls in his price range.

Go for the Valveking 112+an OD+whatever effects you want. I like the cube 30x, but I don't think the 60 is worth it. The Valveking 212 isnt really worth the price tag.

Yup, amount of speakers doesn't affect how loud it is.

Orly? then what the hell is the point in having a full stack when you can just get a 100 watt tube combo?

In cases like that you need more speakers to handle the wattage since there isn't a 100w 12" speaker. The only difference speakers give you is the way it sounds. It adds some low end.

Yup, swap out the tubes when you get it as I've heard the ones in those thing suck. I'd would look into a speaker as well since those aren't very nice either. I wouldn't really know what to suggest for a VK though.

Too much for your budget, but something to consider down the road as the VK doesn't seem like a terrible amp stock.

Depends on the tubes and speaker.
