Hey now Ive been looking at getting a new amp but I have no idea what to get. The guitar I have right now is a Gibson SG Special. I mostly play classic rock/blues and sometimes some modern hard rock stuff. I want to spend a maximum of $1000 AUS. Do any of you guys have any suggestions?

Do you know what brands of amps are available in Australia? Seems like people always recommend stuff and then it's not available over there.
I'd look into a Peavey Classic 30 though.

I don't know the difference in curency, do you? Like the other poster said what's available? Have you checked out the Randall RM MTS series yet? Check out these YouTube video clips of what this amp can do. If you never heard of it, it's def. worth checking out. It'll make you a believer. There's no other tube amp I would rather have nor need than this.

1 AUD = 70 US cents. I recommend a Fender Blues junior or an Orange Tiny Terror, both are $1000 at the store near me.
My Gear:
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Peavey Vypyr 30
DW Collector's 3 pc drums
Mapex Black panther snare
Sabian AAX/Zildjian K cymbals.

I believe you should be able to score a Classic 30 for that down under.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
