What would be a good tube amp I can use? My budget's in the 300-400$ area. I love to play metal, rock, and jazz. It should be loud, at a respectable level. I have a Silvertone Pandera (A good Guitar). Anyone have any suggestions?

ehh peavey classic 30, might have a hard time getting metal or a peavey vk

I'm tired of reading this thread over and over.

It's always "I need my first tube amp, I have (around) $400." And usually they play metal or they play everything, and it's always the same amps that get recommended.

There needs to be a sticky or something.


This wasn't directed in hostility at TS; I'm just really tired of seeing almost the exact same question with the same price range.

save more money. anything but a crate palmino or a peavy classic series will be out of your price range. and neither of them are good for metal.

I really wouldn't mind saving more money, all I need is a great amp with the price range of something I can collect in less than a year. More likely in 5 months.

If you have a job, you can probably get enough for a good amp in no time.
Aboard an old pirate ship made of wet souls..

We plunder and pillage from north to south poles..

We only steal metal like guns, tanks, and toasters..

We melt it all down and we make rollercoasters.

Yeah, I don't. Just thinking of playing in public.

Hate to sound like a jerk, but getting one would really help.

A VK would be... a ValveKing, wouldn't it? I guess I can check that out since it came up twice in this thread. Would a 212 do it?
