well, i placed an order for a peavey vypyr 30, but cancelled it since they wouldnt be able to deliver for 1month+. so now im getting £150-200 for my birthday and ill be getting more cash in march (payday, woo) so i need some good suggestions for amps.

i play mostly metal and hard rock. but sometimes i venture into some classic rock and 70s stuff eg. Cream, Hendrix, Lynyrd Skynyrd.

i need something that would work nicely with my pedals and stuff and hopefully (if all goes well) something i can gig with.

thanks.

If you spend less money on Emma, can you get more amp money?

i intend to do good-amp hunting on ebay when i get the cash in the bank, and yeah, spending less on her would give me more money, but less sex :L

so when you say she's your everything, you really mean she's just your sex buddy?


/spam.

Let me get this straight... you placed an order for a Vypyr, but it won't get in for a month, so you cancelled it. Now you're telling us that you won't have the money for an amp until March, which is at least 2-2 1/2 weeks....


So why not the Vypyr again?

Yeah...

As WTF said, go with a Classic 30 or Handsome Devil. Those are probably your best options, or up your budget a bit and get a Rebel.

well, do you put sex over tone?

Sometimes one creates the other. o.O

So TS - what is our total budget here?

to answer above question: www.guitarampkeyboard.com

and i dotn want to wait for the vypyr because its meant to be a bday present for the 22nd of this month. if ican just get the money for my bday, id be paid next month before the vypyr got to me, and id have more to spend on a better amp.

about £250ish probably as aspose to £149 on the vypyr at the end of march

Or check and see what decent used amps you have near you. Good luck with Emma!

Yeah, but just a little outside the budget. Looks like he's flyin solo for a couple weeks.

Off topic, but when you get a G/F that spends all her money on your gear then you have a keeper.

im going to keep those ideas in mind. some of those amps look well nice. im going to keep browsing ebay though. id quite like a marshall JVM- because my cousin has one that he got off Ebay and it sounds truely immense, used- theyre not too far out of my price range either. might require saving for a little longer though.
