I'm looking for a good tube amp for under $400 at the most, under $300 preferably. I need an amp that has at least 2 channels preferably 3. I'm going to be playing anything and everything between classical guitar to death
metal, mainly classical, blues/jazz, classic rock, heavy metal, and deathmetal. I need something that can be heard over 3 other guitars, bass, drums, and vox. It has to be a combo as well. I know it'll be hard to find an amp like this, but i've found a few that are in the price range new. I need to go to guitar center and demo them, but any advice or review from experience would help.

You'll need at least 30 watts to be heard in a band situation unmiced.


Stretch your budget a little and you might be cooking.


Check out the Crate Palomino series or the Traynor YCV series. You could go the classic 30 route or the Valveking as well.

i really don't have the time to save up that much. plus i really want a lower wattage amp. I've got a big ass amp i need something in the middle though. thanks for the advice though, i forgot about carvin for a sec.

My 30 watter through a pair of G12H30s will overpower the rest of the band by the time it hits 7 or so on the volume.

Point being? I said he'd need 30 watts to be heard in a band situation unmiced.

That you don't need at least 30 watts. I've gigged with a 15 watt amp before without a mic, a 30 watter can easily drown out an entire band depending on the amp.

You can gig with a 15 watter. I've gigged with a Blues Junior before and you know what? It struggled.

Your 30 watter might be loud, but not all 30 watters are the same loudness.
