I am just learning so I was hoping to get something real versatile so I could play around with stuff from blues to metal. My budget is around $500 a little more maybe but less is better. I live in Louisiana.

What about the vox valvetronix or the Peavey vypyr anyone have experience with these two amps.
#7
Either of those amps are great, versatile options.

Vox Valvetronix and Peavey Vypyr are both excellent choices and will serve you well. If it was me, I'd go for the Vypyr as it's far more versatile in what it can do and covers a wider range of effective sounds.

As it has tubes I would imagine it does but then it will also be considerably more expensive

for a beginner amp, you certainly wont need 500 bucks. either get a cube 30x or vypyr 30. if you get one of those, you'll be able to get a nice tube amp later on if you possibly gig, and you know what styles your gonna play etc. you could buy a line 6 flextone right now though, it would last you a long time. it might be a bit overwhelming to a beginner though, it would be best if you stuck with one of the beginner modeling amps.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Youd be surprised its only 200 for the 5 watt and 300 forthe 15 watt very affordable and bang for your buck.

Great amps by the way.

I think since you got money now might as well invest in something more worth it for later maybe like a cheap tube amp like a Valveking and then one of those Digtech RP multieffects pedals to get you the low down on the basics and hone in on what you want to persue as a player.

Valvekings go for 400 i bealive and those multi FX are pretty cheap to 80 bucks i think.

If you get a modeler with that type of money youll just be unsatisfied after a couple of weeks and want something better so might as well get a valveking i dont know why people are saying get a moddeler its just a waste of money.

If you had 200 bucks then sure its a good route but you got 500 make your money count dont waste it on a moddeler.

the only one id recomend if you are ganna get one is the Fender Super Champs XD.

Or if you can and you are ganna buy a moddeler for that money find a used line 6 flextone youll be very satisfied in terms of sound quality.

If you want a large pallet of sounds and tonal varieties definately lookd into flextones.

^that guy was reffering to fender champ XD line wich use tubes and amp moddeling tech to give you sounds with that tube feel.

There really great for the money

I liked the superchamp xd better than the vox, but tone varies by person. The superchamp is 350 or something now, vibrochamp is 250. I have the same guitar as you, thought the superchamp xd was the nicest modeling amp I played, but the vyper wasn't out yet, and I had a lower price range than you.

Definitely look into a flextone, or a used vetta, they're supposed to be superb, although I have no personal experience with either.

Basically, try out whatever you can in your price range
