You missed it. The GDEC 3-Thrity was $99 at GC on Black Friday.

Vypyr - Great for high gain and pretty good cleans
Mustang - Great for cleans and mid gain tones

I got Peavey Vypyr 15. Cost me around 80.

Im no sound expert but it has pretty nice cleans even with my trainwreck of a guitar.

You really aren't upgrading your amp if you are buying an amp of the same type for the same amount of money. It might be a slight upgrade, yes, but it will be smarter if you just buy the amp that you will not need to upgrade any more (ie. more expensive and bigger amp). Going from 15 watt modeling practice amp to another 15 watt modeling practice amp is just waste of money. Try if you could sell your Spider and for that money buy a Fender Mustang (used). I have no experience with them but people say that they have good clean sounds.

You're switching from a 2002 compact car with 110hp, 20mpg, and 150,000 miles to another 2002 compact car with 120hp, 22mpg, and 150,000 miles. What's the point? Because one is red and the other is orange?

You would be better off saving your money for something that will last you. If you really like modellers, the Peavey Vypyr Tube 60 goes for $250 used all day long, $400 with the Sanpera II footswitch. That amp is gig-worthy and all-around great, although it's strong suit is certainly Metal tones, the rest of it's stuff is still excellent for the price.

However, since you really only use cleans, you could save up for a nice tube amp that excells at cleans. They aren't hard to find, and it'll be a much larger upgrade. If you are only using clean tones, I find a modelling amp kinda pointless. It would be like buying a truck to haul around 2-3 pillows. Yeah, it can do it, but you could find something much more suited for your needs.
