Depends, how much are you willing to dup into effects pedals, because to get all my tones i have 3 different amps and prob 1500 bucks worth of pedals.. But a modeller you only need one amp, but it wont sound nearly as good, but if your not getting paid to do it, thats more than good.

As a first amp, i'd say mustang

In the 60s Fender made the best combos, but IMHO Peavey has been making much better amps than Fender for the past 30 years

I'm still standing by the VK 112.

you don't need a pile of different sounds to get into blink and zep territory. I would suggest bypassing the modelling amps and getting a decent 2 channel tube amp. you won't get the variety of sounds, but the sounds you get will be way stronger.

While I have recommended Peaveys myself, I still take them on a case by case basis.

After a side-by-side comparison of several brands when shopping for myself, the Peavey kicked itself out of the final 3 by delivering some real icepicks to the ears- both when I tried it, and when the salesman did as well.

Down to a Fender and a Vox, I bought the Fender HRD.

No.

The Super Champ wouldn't be bad, for No Quarter and such you can pop a fuzz pedal on. Or just always use a fuzz pedal.

The Peavey Classic 30 is a solid amp. My friend's dad has one, and it doesn't have enough gain for heavier styles, but that shouldn't worry you. They've got great cleans, a nice overdrive, and they're pretty inexpensive.

I would personally go for an Orange Tiny Terror combo, used you can get a combo by stretching your budget a little. Page used Orange on one of his recent tours and raved over them, so there's that.

+1

i'm not really sure of what's available for $300, but that sounds like sound advice.

Like nothing.

You don't start to find solid 2-channel tube amps until the $400+ range. At $300 or less, you're still looking at sub-5w one channel items, like the Champion or Vox AC4TV.

Could perhaps get a used Laney AOR, Peavy Windsor or a used Terror of some sort? But I've got no idea on pricing that aren't outside Europe. So sorry for not being much help.

Mate, you've already made a thread like this. How come you've changed your requirements? Are you spamming? First you said you want a metal tone, like avenged sevenfold - now you're saying you want classic rock like Zeppelin.

There's a big difference between the two tones, in classic rock the mids are emphasized whereas in new metal bands, they tend to scoop them.

We already gave you suggestions for a used 6505+ combo but since you can't afford one you said you would settle with a Vypyr.

Don't bother with an MG or a Spyder. Probably the two worst modelers you can buy.

I'm now going to assume you don't want to play metal, and just want a classic rock/182 tone. So I'm going to recommend a used AC15 or used Peavey Classic 30.

Trust us, and listen to our advice. Otherwise you can go ahead and waste your money.

ya im not spamming and i didnt mean to affend you its just that i play both classic rock/182 and metal, but i was debating weather to get 182 or metal tone thats it and i wanted to see which amps were the best for both tones. i decided to go with the blink tone. like i said i didnt mean to affend you and if i did for whatever reason, im sorry.

Which Vypyr? 30 or 75 with a Sanpera, not really. Tube combo, probably, depending on condition.
