I want to get an amp for my birthday out of these 2 which one should i get?? the valve king is a little more expensive but is a valve amp, but vypyr is solid state but apparently the sound is awesome and i wont have to worry about replacing tubes!

ValveKing all the way!
Seriously, if you'd buy a Vypyr, you'd want to change to a VK within a month, because the VK is so awesome :P

Right ok, well the VK isn't really a metal amp. Could you stretch that at all? Because for another £100 you could get a Bugera. Or a Randall, its SS but they're renowned for making decent metal SS amps

Or you could get a Sound City, Guitarist magazine said it have looooaads of gain, but I have no personal experience with them.

Try both and see which one you like better. You might want to try the tube versions of the Vypyr (60 & 120). They should be out later this month. You might like one of those better than the 75 or the Valve King. From what I've heard the Vypyr does metal better than the VK.

^yes it does.

As for cleans, who cares, people dont buy valvekings for cleans.

Plus 1 for vypyr.

Vypyr. Honestly, it sounds way better than people usually say it does. I think it's better than a VK honestly. Oh, and the Vypyr Tube 60 is similar in price to the VK112, and has the modeling and the tube power amp.
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)
Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz V
Audient iD22 interface
Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40
Adam S3A monitors

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

dude, the rg50 is not an ss amp

and imo its hard to recommend because the gain channel is fairly fizzy. you could do better for for the same cash(or slightly more depending on where you live)

get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.

Oops, got confused, couldn't remember which was which, but I've seen a lot of people say positive things about it round here. In all honesty you'll just have to try different amps out and see what you think.
