im 13, im in a metal band, i have an ibanez rg350dx, 400$ is my budget, i need a tube amp that goes good with metal and loud enough for gigging. thank you (ps. i play thrash/deathmetal/rock so it needs to have decent sound in all aspects even clean, and no over 400$ pls) combo amp probably------ ok i think i came down to the line 6 spider3 120 watt(solid state), valve king 112 50watt, crate v50 50 watt, flexwave 120 watt (solid state), b-52 100 used head (but if my budget is 400 how will i get a cabinet), please help me, this is very important. thank you

Um, dont waste your money on music equipment. Buy a shotgun and blow your brains out. You shouldnt be experimenting with music, you should be experimenting with your penis. When I was 12 I murdered my mom.

like everyone else here, the valveking 112 is the sickest tube amp for >400. Nothing can beat it for that price. and it kicks ass for metal too, the distortion on it is GODLY

Uh..no. It's definitely not "the sickest tube amp for >400". It's good, but nothing special. You could get a considerably higher end amp by utilizing the used market.

Yeah i personally don't really like the valvekings tone... but thats just me, but for 400$. But 50 watts of an a/b tube amp will be plenty loud enough. It can probably do some metal on its own, but for of the crunchier stuff an OD or distortion pedal could be used to push it almost anywhere you could possibly want it to go.

but for that price range and loud enough to gig with i don't see many other options. And your 12? holy hell, and in and already playing for people? props to ya, lol makes me wish i started playing before i was 18.

Maybe the crate V series 50 watter...and the only other thing that looked loud enough that i saw was one of those pignose's but this doesn't look like it has a gain channel, and i havn't ever used the crate. The valveking definately looks like your best bet

the head? maybe used. easier finding a b-52 combo used in that price range. but then he would also have to buy a cab. And he might have trouble moving all that around tbh...
