Hi,

I looking for a new amp I was going to get a Harley benton GA5 but I tried to order it and it died and plus it's in Germany so I really don't like ordering things from different countries. I'm looking for an all tube amp. The most I can sepnd is most probably around £120

Genres:
Metal
Classic rock
Blues

Thanks

no way you'll get a good valve amp at that price, maybe the epiphone valve jr but i wouldn't trust it, crate's are cheap i wouldn't trust them either.

That was an edit that he didn't denote.
nevertheless. 120 pounds aint much. Especially for Metal-ClassicRock-Blues
Try Roland Cube 20X
Vox AD15VT
Peavey Vypyr 30 (a bit of a stretch at 144 pounds)
I'm putting my GAS on hold
for a couple months in order to pimp my ride.


Don't judge me.

Vypyr, then. or a bigger cube.

This.

Even at 200 pounds you are not going to be able to get a tube amp to cover those genres. There are some tube amps in that price range that would be able to do classic rock or blues, but nothing that would cover metal - not even with a speaker swap or OD boost... If you are looking for a tube amp that can pull off metal you are going to need a budget that is at least double the one you have now.

What are the amps that go in that price range that are all-tube?

just get a used moded valveking and call it a day.
try getting a new FEnder super champ XD, dont get that vypyr, valvetronic, rolond cube rubish.
youll fall in love with the fender after an extra 60 bucks on new tubes and new speaker.
i like it better than the valveking to be honest all you need is a bad monkey.

This is sorta true. Try the Super Champ, its 225 pounds. But I stand by my recommendation of a Vypyr or Cube. They aren't the greatest, but they're hardly rubbish.
