I finally decided a cheap half stack wasn't worth it and a tube combo would be a better choice...

I need something around $400 if possible ( could go a bit higher. ).
I will be buying used.
I play metal but in my band we play like Mars Volta kind of music so it's gotta be pretty versatile.

B-52 AT-112 all the way. Valveking is okay for the money, but the B-52 will get you better high gain tones IMO, andreally needs a speaker change and tube change, and many people here would agree with me. The B-52 can hit just about any tones you want.

Yea I second the B52. My other guitarist in my band has the head version. We play melodic metalcore type stuff and he's got a great tone out of it. I haven't heard him use any other tone distortion wise but according to him it's very versatile. The cleans are really good too. A disclaimer though. Something messed up with it in the power section so something only 15% of the power was getting through. Just thought I'd share that b/c he's the only one I know with a B52 and it's broken down on him. Don't know how relevant that is to their other products though.
