OK im amp shopping my preferred price is under 250 AUD currently i am going for these amps
Fender Frontman 15R (tested, faved at the moment)
Orange Crush 10,15,15R (not tested but would like)
Ibanez Toneblaster practice amp

does anyone have any opinions on the above? im more of a satch player but a versatile amp that can handle clean and distrotion would be great.
SATCH FTW!!!
NSW Group FTW!

There's nothing incredibly interesting here.

Hmm....try a Vox Valvetronix or Roland Microcube.

I own the older 30 watt version of the Vox and it was fairly versatile with some nice sounds available. Not really a metal amp, but it could up to around Metallica levels I think.

Roland Microcube, I tried once a long time ago. Nice amp and lots of sounds, for the price you're getting a lot.

Actually for just bedroom playing, a Line 6 might not be a bad idea. I haven't tried one in a long time but I think I plugged into one of their 30 watt modelling amps and it sounded alright to me. If you're aiming for those higher gain lead tones at low volumes i'd check it out.

If you play clean, then I suggest Frontman. They have pretty decent clean sounds.

However, the "distortion" is just a horrible fizzy mess.

Of course, since when have people looked to Fender amps for crazy overdrive?

I say Vypyr or Cube

for metal man, if thats what your going for.
check out a Line 6 Spider III
Its such a nice little amp, it squeals and some a variety of channels
Clean
Crunch
Metal
Insane

Crunch and metal are pretty pointless in my opinion actually, unless your going for that old grundgy Alice in Chains or possible Tool sound.
