me and my friend are in the same band, he needs a good loud enough combo amp. i have had experience with solid states and they suck big dick, what is a good tube combo amp that is in his price range (around 400). if it helps we play rock, kinda like saosin, mixed with paramore and escape the fate. if it helps he is the rhythem guitarist.
If blackheart would ever getting around to shipping their 15w handsome devil, I'd suggest trying that out. I'd say check out the 50w Valveking combo. Maybe too loud for what he needs, but still a great amp.
