I have barely any knowledge of amps. I know (basically) how they work, the difference between tube/valve and transistor amps.

I know what i want to get out of an amp.

But i have no idea what im looking for. I would just go into my Dawsons and ask there, test a few out, but sometimes i really hate the guys who work there. Some can be real pricks, and just not help you unless you're buying something.

So here i am, asking you good UG'ers to help me out.

I would really like a nice high gain valve amp. I play metal such as Balck Sabbath/Randy Rhoads, modern rock, death metal and classic rock.

I'm not sure about prices but i think something around 200 quid would be a good range budget.

Something small but loud enough to play in a practice band. A 1x12 at around 20~30 watts i'd imagine.

Whats out there for me UG?

Thanks in advance.

I was gonna say, i looked at the LC15 on youtube and everyone is using it for blues.

I say everyone, one person used it for a Crazy Train cover.

I'm looking at the Peavey Valveking 112 now

Valveking might pass Death if you got a decent overdrive. Try save up a bit more more and look for bargains on Ebay
