I'm looking to get a second amp for roughly 100 dollars. I like to play classic rock, blues, but mostly heavy metal. So I want a amp that has really good distortion options. It only has to be 10-15w, and I'd like it to have an input for a pedal.

Thanks.

Peavey Vypyr 15?

Its the best amp for that price, and you dont need pedals with it.

Roland Cube (no footswitch though) or a Randall RX15M (also no footswitch). You probably won't be able to find an amp with footswitch capabilities at that price.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

A Cube 15 is the best practice amp to use pedals with.

I personally can't find something I like out of all the amp models on the Vypyr, but whatever one you want is fine.

He meant a footswitch to go from the amp's clean channel to the gain channel.

I just got a guitar center catalog in the mail. They have crate 5 watt tube amps going for under 100 right now. It was something crazy like %73 off.

I don't know a lot about tube amps. I've heard the quality is better, how are they when it comes to distortion?

Thanks everyone for all the responses btw.

Nearly every major metal and rock band in existence uses tube amps (if they don't they either did or will switch to one later). However, small tube amps (like under 15-20 watts) don't really have the best bass response, and it tends to be harder to get great distortion out of them. Go for a solid-state if you just want a practice amp. When you start playing with a band or wanting to record, THEN think about a tube amp.

And on that subject, the Roland Cube will probably be your best bet, but you'll have to deal with no footswitch. When I was younger I got a 25 watt Ibanez with a footswitch and it ran $150 without the switch, which was like another $20.

a vox pathfinder 15r would suit you situation nicely, it has an output jack for hooking it up to other speakers or a PA, i heard it has a great clean tone, adn its built in gain is nice and creamy

The Cube is awesome
Panties 'round your knees
With your ass in debris
Doin' dat grind with a push and squeeze
Tied up, tied down, up against the wall
Be my rubbermade baby
An' we can do it all

My way - your way
Anything goes tonight

I'd personally save up some more money and buy something better, especially if I already had an amp. Nothing in the new for 100 bucks is going to inspire you to play, I imagine.
