ok heres the deal. ive made a couple thousand this summer working and i usually save my money but ive decided to get a new amp because my v-amp is just plane horrible. I usually play stuff like Iron Maiden, Metallica, pantera and the likes. So i was thinking that i need something with a ****load of kickass distortion since I barely ever use clean sounds. I have at max 1,000 to spend. I would like to get an all tube amp and something similar to what dimebag or kirk use. any good suggestions?

i wanna tsl 100
but anyway, idk, it say marshall.. ya, most of them are liek theee best
except for mg;s which CAN BURN

Randall RX150 series, no looking back

Well what are you going to use it for? Practice by yourself, practice with band, or even gigging? That might be good to know.

I'm going to recommend you a Peavey 6505 (or a used 5150) though. It's just a plain package with ****loads of distortion. It is huge though, so it would be helpful if you provide some information concerning your living situation!

You've got a hell of a budget to work with, go to your store and play some peaveys, they're popular with metal, but play as much as you can.

And also don't limit yourself to half stacks or combos, play EVERYTHING.

There's a 60 watt 2x12 6505 combo for sale on MF, for $912 plus shipping.
It's used though.

That should give you all the distortion you need, and at 60 watts it's more than loud enough to play with friends.
