    Ive tried the tube route,its just not gonna happen till i get more money.My budget is 400 dollars for a head and later i will be getting a cab.My main genres are grindcore and led zeppelin/pink floyd type things.i need decent cleans and nice distortion.i tend to jump around genres pretty much.I dont want a combo as the two pieces(cab and head) make it more versatile as i can later get a better head and stick with my cab.Ive been eyeing a ampeg vh140c which is suppose to do some brutal tone and decent cleans.other things ive been looking at are randall rg and a marshall mode four.Of course im willing to go used.What else do you guys recommend?If theres a tube head at that price that meets my specifications please tell me.No peavey 5150 or valveking for me though i dont like both of em.

      Hell yeah!grind to floyd XD.valvetronix looks pretty nice and i tried it and it was nice but idk i have a feeling it wont give me as much gain as i would like in the long run.My cousin has a valvetronix and a schecter damien as his starter rig thanks to me and the forums though XD he got a nice starter rig.

              no randalls near you?

              hm.. well I can't properly tell you what that randall sounds like..but..just try things out

              see what sounds good to you, buy it. the end

              also..

              for heavier tones...the vox valvetronix XL is more geared for high gain.

                  If you are playing in a band make sure to get something that is higher wattage so it can cut through. I have heard decent things about the peavey XXL.

                    the ampeg vh-140c is a gain monster. dark, and intense...kinda reminds me of Ganondorf

                    you can hear the amp onn suffocation/dying fetus recordings

                    not sure about the XL as i've never played it.. but it's got great high gain settings....from what i hear.. and it was made...to be a high gain amp.

                            that's okay, I'd never sell mine anyway, I love it.
