Good tune amps for cheap money?

I need a good tube amp, yet one that one kill my bank account. I am in a metal project and we play stuff like ghost, rammstein, deftones, etc.

Also, if it came down to it, should I go, black star, lanye, or Marshall dsl?

    All modern valve (tube) amps are rip-offs, targeting people with more money than sense.

    No one can tell the difference in sound between decent valve amps and decent solid state amps of similar ratings, if they cannot see the amps.

    That has been proved with professional guitarists in blind tests.

    Just buy a good 100W+ RMS non-gimmicky solid state amp/combo from one of the classic manufacturers - you will not regret it.

    I have a Carlsbro GLS100; it cost less new than some present ludicrously priced 10W valve practice amps & it's superb.

    You can't go wrong with a Glaswerks tube amp.
