Ok, I don't really know jack **** about amps, and I was planning on buying a new one for a talent show I'm going to be in and just messin around. From some opinions I've gotten this would be really nice

But recently, I saw this one which was cheaper.

I'm just wondering, why is there a difference in price if one has more watts? I was pretty sure about getting the 60 watt though. Anyone who has knowledge I'd appreciate it.

Well, that's exactly what I was looking for, thanks. I thought there was a mistake at first.

Get the first one. The first one is a trans-tube amp, which is why it costs more, therefore it will produce a better sound over the Solid state amp, which is what the second one is.

Not to be too picky but the Vypyr 60 has 2 power tubes and 1 preamp tube as a phase inverter so I consider it a hybrid amp. Yes transtube technology plays a huge roll in the sound the it makes. Of the two, it would be the one I would buy.

There are other amps out there too.

Home or Gig? (both)

And budget, is almost not enough for it, luckily GC is having a sale the day after my b'day( Feb 16) and 10% off means about 400 and I was planning on chipping about $200 in. as you can tell, the money tree in my backyard never grew much.

Well, I'll think about that sanpera thing. I've heard that the wah isn't good though, and I love my digitech whammy, and the wah. Hell I love the whole thing, couldn't stand to sell it. But thanks for all the help.

WTF had a good option.

I have a RP250. It's not that bad. You can run it on a tube amp but it will take away from the amps original tone. They also work well on solid state amps. So will you have $400 or $600? Big difference.

Valveking is pretty versatile but will need a new speaker and OD pedal to do COB. B52 is pretty good. So is the Randall RG50TC. There is a 6505+ combo coming out for $500 I think but I don't know how it would do Hendrix. Also check your local craigslist for killer amps or use the link in my sig.
