I have about $330 and i need a new amp really bad mine sucks, seriously its a spider, and I've been checking amps out for probably 2 days now trying to figure out which one I should get. Right now the Peavey Vypyr 75 looks really nice, but I was wondering if there is a better one. It needs to be pretty versatile because I play a lot of stuff that needs to sound clean and I play things that need a lot of gain. Thanks for the help.

I have a Hughes & Kettner Vortex Black Series 2x12 that I bought (if I remember right) for 300 a few good years back.

The clean channel sounds amazing and the distorted channel has PLENTY of versatility. I've gone from a perfect AC/DC sound to late 80's Metallica, Children of Bodom, Opeth then back down to Deep Purple with it.

*Edit*
I think they stopped making them

Yeah, but I doubt you'd get much for it.

I actually played a Bandit 112 today at a local guitar store it was used and i think something was really wrong with it because no matter wat channel i played on or how high i had the gain it was always clean the owner of the store even tinkered with it and said he didnt know wat was going on....bad first impression for me, but the new ones are probably better

That sounds a lot like my dad's vintage Cube 100. None of the controls work at all, so the only sound you get is a somewhat quiet, flat-EQ clean tone.
