The Fender Super-Sonic 60W amp head (http://www.music123.com/Fender-Super-Sonic-Head-i290117.music) or the Peavy ValveKing 100W amp head (http://www.music123.com/Peavey-ValveKing-100-Head-i242807.music) for almost 500 bucks cheaper? I'm suck on a decision.

Fender are know for having the worst distortion and Peavey are know for their distortion... I got a Peavey and it's amazing. Go with Peavey.

Iv heard that the pv's awsome for the money but not quite as good as the fender. Its like the difference between an epiphone elitist or a gibson.

Yeah. Marshall you pay for the crappy effects that come with it and the name.

No I got a ass load of good effects on mine, wah, wah lead, st. trash, etc. Its great for metal and mix it with an Ibanez guitar, and your in hell (the heaven of metal)

This is what Ive been using lately through a fender/marshall stack, fender bottom, marshall top, and I used to use a marshall head with two fender cabs, and I switched it for this head

None, I have a really bad Ibanez combo right now, so I'm going to buy a cab whenever I get the head.

However much I can save up. It depends on how much I can save over the summer and if I can get a better job.
