Well, I've tried to give my Spider III a chance but I hate almost everything about it. I'll be trading it in by the end of the week for something else, but I have no idea what to look for in a practice amp.

I'm looking for something in the range of $500 (U.S.) for it, and I can't stand how modeling amps sound, so please leave them out.

I play a lot of Black Sabbath, Guns N' Roses, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin type things. Thanks for the help.
Are you willing to go used?

And whoever said Marshall...

Avoid MG's and AVT's.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard w/ SD Alnico Pro II's
Fender Aerodyne Telecaster & Stratocaster
Marshall JCM 800 4104 combo

Blackheart amps are good, small all-tube combos for practice. Maybe a Fender Super Champ XD, or a Peavey Windsor Studio, which has alot of features but only one channel.
