I've never bought and amp, unless you count the one that came with my guitar, and I just want to know how much a nice amp costs. I'm not talking Marshall 100 watts but I want something bigger than my fender 15G frontman. Thanks ahead of time.

Everything is worth what its purchaser will pay for it.

Bigger isn't always better, either. The Peavey Vypyr 30 is a decent option for 200 bucks new.

A good amp isn't just it's price tag.

Which is why a Marshall MG is often poor compared to other amps around the same price.

Real gear geeks or geeks of anything (be it cars, computers or whatever) think value is the most/one of the most important things. Price to power ratio.

I started with a 15G Frontman.
I have been watching Craigslist and picked up a Peavey Transchorus 210 yesterday for $175 and WOW! what a difference.
From what I have seen I got an ok deal, best for me is that I am very happy with it......for now.

300 is where you start to get good cleans

i dont think 1500 for a cab is worth it.
anyine know about peavey windsors?
they're like 400 with a cab/head
Just call me Julius, J, etc.
Taking an Internet break for a while, will come on when I can.

Peavey cabs in general are horrible. Get the head and a cab seperately if you get it - an Avatar 2x12 will set you right.

Cleans are meh, does distortion fairly well, don't use the Peavey cab.

My Behringer 15w tube amp, is awesome. At firsrt I thought Behringer was horible but the amp itself is amazing. and I think its only around 100 bucks, but Im not sure because it came in a guitar pack.

How long is a piece of string? Your question is unanswerable.

I have a Fender Frontman 212R (The 100 watt version of the 15G) and it's beastly. The clean tones are incredible, and the drive channel isnt too bad for a solid state amp. It only cost me like $330 at Guitar Center.

Don't listen to this guy please. Fender Frontman's are horrible amps.

The boxy part on the bottom. Peavey makes fairly poor speaker cabinets.

I've got the windsor and the cleans aren't great, but pushed it isn't half bad. Be very careful about the wattage. 100 watts is about useless at home. Your neighbors will gather with pitchforks and torches and it won't be pretty.

Behringer 15w tube?
Guitar pack?


for the reading error.

The question, as previously stated, can only be answered by the person asking it.

Don't judge me.
