Okay guys, I'm letting a friend ask a question with my profile, so don't think I'm a noob:

Alright, so I'm looking for a good, cheap, versitile amp for power metal (Metallica, Sabbath) althogh I play a little of everything. About $250 is my budget. I've been looking at the Raven amps, are they any good? thanks
Gibson SG Standard
Gibson Les Paul Traditional
Cort Explorer
Squire Standard Strat rebuilt with Fender USA parts
Squire Tele
Krank 1980
Orange Tiny Terror
Traynor YCV 50 Blue
Peavey Vypyr 75

Will fly for food. Call me Dylan

Vox Valvetronix AD30VT fits that price...

its great for the money
If you like Blues/Rock then add me as a friend. I need to talk to some Blues/Rock Musicians and need reccomendations.

I don't think Metallica is power metal, but anyway...

I've never heard of Raven amps, but if you have a valvking already, you could upgrade the tubes and speaker, throw in a metal muff, and that should be a huge improvement if you are looking for a better metal tone.
Otherwise, I can only see you affording SS amps... if that is what you want though, just a cheap one, look at Roland, their cubes are good for that.

I played a raven at GC and lets say... there are better. It's just kind of a flat tone, not very exciting. Not recomended.
