hey guys, time for a new amp
currently have a 5w hybrid fender vibro champ XD, its nice, but too quiet for small gigs/ barely audible over drums.

ive heard that i can 180 back from the music store from it, plus i have about 140 in cash, so my budget would be somewhere near 400$

gigging: yes
budget: 250 - 400 Canadian
music: classic rock, metal, hard rock
PS: i get 20$ allowance a month, plus i could do odd jobs, so id like maybe a pay-by-month thing, and without interest

prefer new, but i could go used

ive looked at the Vypyr 75w , ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b851Vk8li40 ) and it blew me away, great cleans and great dirty's.

but then again, why not go tube? Vypyr tube 60

im hoping that the 60w sounds better, and id eventually get a sanpera.

any other sugestions, comments, ideas?
must be able to be shipped to canada (nova scotia)

thanks

-Egnater Rebel 20

You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.

hmm, adding modeling to real tube amp is like running a tube amp through a digital processor. imo, go for a valveking and a couple of stomp box pedals.
Gear:
Aria lawsuit V
epiphone E-310 strat copy
peavey vypyr 15
boss blues driver II
Kramer striker 100st (invader pickup)

this, or something similar. trust me, modeling is sooooo generic sounding.

Have you played it??? Because when I played it, I thought it had a ton more character than the pure SS ones...... Maybe my ear isn't good? (i think it is....)

If you like the Vibro then maybe step up to the SCXD and try to find an ext cab to use with it for gigs.

I have never tried any Vypyrs but my friend's dad has a Peavey Trans-Tube (Bandit 112 i think) and it has great cleans and dirtys for the price. i use it for band practice currently, so don't underestimate the Tran-tube version.

Valvekings aren't any better than the Vypyr tube. Less Versatile and not as good sounding imo. Getting a regular Vypyr will be a tone downgrade from your vibro champ though.

but im looking at the tube 60, plus it'll be alot louder for gigs.

the SC and VC are the same, but footswitchable for the SC.
i need ythis for volume, and the video clips on youtube make me amazed at it.
