i want to get as many opinions as possible.

i'm either going to choose between a Randall RH150plus or a Peavey Valveking.

i have a JCM 800 1960a cab and i play metalcore/melodic hardcore/toughguy.

i've played the RH100 and valveking through my cab.
i like them both.
i know the valveking is alot louder and is tube
which is good. The RH150 is loud enough,
i'm not sure if its tube though.

how different is the RH150 and RH100?
besides wattage.

and what head would be better in the long run?

i think the valveking would be best with a cab that has V30's and a tube screamer behind it.

all my opinion though
Peavey XXX combo *upgraded screen resistors, Tung-Sol's, and 6L6's*
Schecter Syn Std. * modded, scalloped, and worn*
Schecter C-1 Elite *still sexy*
Ibanez AEL 12-string

I say the valveking. Mainly because bad stock speakers are the VK's worst feature, but you have a good cab, so you're covered.
Slap a good set of tubes in, and you're set.

Well the Valveking would take a bit of work to get it into the metal realm and even then its still not the best option for a 100% metal player. Its more of a versatile amp that can hit the tip of metal from time to time.

I own the RH100 and like it well enough but theres no replacement for a tube amp. I just use it for headphone practice and pantera in a box stuff with a side of woo hoo lets just go chainsaw crazy...

Whats you budget? Im sure theres alot better amps out there in your price range...

well i'm getting a head for my birthday MAYBE.
i'm going to be splitting the cost with my parents.

the reason i chose these two heads are because i know they're both good sounding
heads for my style and i found them on musiciansfriend in the scratch n' dent section.
so they were cheaper.

i doubt i'll be able to go above 400 or so.
unless i pay 300 and my parents pay 200 for a $500 head.

go for the VK. you have a good cab so your set there, then you can get a cheap tube screamer or OD to boost it along IF it needs it. just look around, check craigslist or ebay for an original Ibanez Ts

well, its hybrid, which means it only has one preamp tube and the rest is SS. The main difference will be sound. The sound MAY break up more if you crank it and it MAY sound like ass. i havnt tried it out, but i have tried the valve king. A nice set of dark sounding tubes in it and an OD will keep a nice punchy metal tone at higher volumes

i'll need to crank it.

im not the best person to suggest tubes so go there, look around, and ask there. i just spend a lot of time at Guitar Center playing on their amps.
