I have £200 (about 300 dollars in today's roaring market) to spend on an amp. I am 14 so, for obvious reasons, will not be able to save up much more.

I want to be able to play hard/classic/prog rock through it (imagine Radiohead, Muse and Pink Floyd and you're on the right track) but with the possibility of venturing into other genres.
It would be great for it to have some effects, but I'll live without them, and a lovely clean and distorted channel.
Also, a nice addition would be longevity. This will be my second amp and I don't want to be upgrading again in a couple of years just to be able to gig.

I've been looking at a 60w Roland cube (http://www.chamberlainmusic.com/ProductDetail.asp?ProductID=CUBE-60) and have been recommended a line six of... some sort.

Current Setup:
Mexican strat.
Zoom 505 pedal (not used too much, a bit of a pain in the rectal region to use)
15W Stagg amp.

Any recommendations (I will try before I buy, I'm not 13 )
If I'm missing any information just ask.


EDIT: I'm interested in the two valves amps mentioned. Would valve have any disadvantage bar the warm up and maintenance?

I had around £200 for Christmas to spend on an amp, but i went slightly over by getting a Fender Super Champ XD for £230, which is all tube and has some really good built in sounds, and delay, reverb etc.

if you want longevity dont buy a cube, simple as that.

how much volume do you need? are you gigging? are you practising with a band?
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

If you extend your budget by around £250 you should definately be able to get a Peavey Classic 30 off Ebay.
