he UG its me again
i need help with an amp because as most of you know the line 6 spider III 30w i have sucks
and i was getting a ashdown but they are discontinued
so i have $400 if it is worth $450 for a new amp
i am going to use it for home practice, band rehearsal, and maybe school shows
so i really want a tube amp, i don´t need more than 30w
i play rock, metal. something like metallica, avenged sevenfold, Killswitch engage bullet for my valentine.
i want good cleans if that is posible and obviously good distortion
i want it to have an effect loop for the RP350 i have(and recommend)

hope you can help me
P.S. i cannot tried the amps because they don´t sell good amps here so i´m going to Miami in June so i wanna know what amps to try first
sorry for gramatical errors too

go to your local store and try on some Marshall,or Vox tube Amps in your price range ,i own a Marshall AVT20 and i get a lot of power out of it, but you can do better than that with your amount of money that you have earned.Try the Mrashall or Vox they are very nice versatile amps.
Peace dude

^^ A Valvetronix is not a tube amp. It has a tube (usually used for preamps) in the power amp section, and I've heard that's really only given enough power to light up. It's still a good amp, but no where near tube.

i cannot try one out right now because here they only sell MGs or line 6 spiders and both sucks
so in june i´m going to miami to their local store and try some amps and buy the schecter at the same time. so i want to know what amp to try first to see if i like them.

just tell me a list of good amp i can buy

Palomino V32 30W Class-A Tube Combo Amp
Pignose G40V Tube Amp
Fender Pro Junior Combo Amp
Crate V Series V18-212 18W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo
Peavey ValveKing 112 Combo Amp
Crate V Series V50-112 50W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo

All tube amps, all under 400. Between 400 and 500 you get a lot more quality, in my opinion...

you could get a tube and get a pedal I'd get like a mt-2 and a blues junior
that should cover you.

look into the Valveking. Great cleans, and a nice crunchy, thrashy overdrive channel. With the RP it should do the trick
