If you could get a home amp for a reasonable price but not too cheap, that has the best sound quality for say, rock/alternative/anything like that, what would it be and why? Basically something that sounds great, without that annoying buzz (i know this can also be caused by cables or your guitar itself)

Edit: Lets make the price range 1k-$2k

Ok what is a "reasonable price but not to cheap"? Because that can mean a lot of different things.

I mean, there are a lot of small boutique amps that are a few thousand dollars yet they are exactly what some people need, so in that sense, they are "reasonably priced." But I guess if you're talking about something below $1000 range, the Vox AC15 is an ok amp.

My favorite amp to use at home is my Crate V18-212 and I got it for $199. Not sure what you mean by reasonable....if your reasonable is say $1000....then I could think of a couple other amps I'd rather have at home.

Nothing compliments a Gibson Les Paul Custom quite like a Fender Frontman 15R

Depends what you mean by a reasonable price. My Cornford Carrera was about £950, but I think it's worh every penny I paid.

Your going to get a whole lot of mixed opinions on this one from small ss to tube halfstack. Just take a few hours out of your time and go test out some amps at your local stores.

I am statinoed overseas on japan atm. No local stores anywhere near me with any sort of selection to base a good opinion off of. So i am looking here for ideas for when i get back state side. I basically wants something just for home purposes. No ned for gigging, but i want the best quality i can get in that price range to get the rock sound using probably a digitech FX or something like that. Maybe run it through a POD so i can record it on my comp.

Since I've been pimping it out lately, I'll say a 20watt Hughes and Kettner Statesman.

It's still a very loud, and you won't get it much past 2 - 4 on the volume unless you take it out for gigging.

It's more of a vintage voicing than a modern one, but you can still actually get a pretty good modern sound out of the drive channel. Great clean channel that works really well with OD pedals too.

ENGL Screamer 50W
it's meant to sound great at low volumes and is only 1x12 so very easy to transport to take round a friends or w/e
