Ok so i know this is an extremely common question, and i know at least one person is going to scream at me USE THE SEARCH BAR!...so before i ask my question i will tell you that i already looked through a bunch of thread's for info, but i just want some opinion's based on my situation..

Ok so here it goes..currently I have a line 6 spider that well, it's ok but i want something better, i can return it to Guitar Center and get my $100 back, and i would be willing to spend about 200-250 in addition to the 100 i get from the return of the line 6 to guitar center..

I am looking for versatility, something that can play both rock blues country metal and whatever else and sound good, i have a multi effect's pedal that will give me all the effect's and stomp boxes i need to achieve these sound's, i just want to know if the speaker's in the amp will sound good for it..

I have been looking at the epiphone Valve Junior Half stack, i have heard some good thing's about it, it's cheap, it's simple, no eq or anything, just the volume and a on and off switch, which is what i want, everything else i can do through the multi effect, or in the future buying good quality effects pedals...

I also see a lot of the Blackheart amp's are around the same price, would those be better for me?
I want something like those, a stack, i don't want another combo amp.
I don't play on playing live, at least not right now so volume is not an issue, i assume any of those stack's would be more then loud enough for now.


So in short, i want a versatile amp, preferably a tube stack for under $350

Also one other thing, what amp's do you think that i can find used for under $350 that would be better then the amp's i am currently looking at?

Thank's for the help!!

HT-5 has an effects loop, two channels, bla bla bla. Best choice really for new amps.
What is on your local craigslist?
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

I checked it yesterday, not much, a bunch of marshall's that are way over my current budget

I agree with the HT5......

I'm sure there exists a good ibby cab, I'm just not aware of any.
Get a proper cab, even a 1x12.

or that...

The blackstar is nice but to me it sounds very british voiced id save up for a while and just stick out the Spider, i know its crap but you will be happier if you save up another 200 bucks and get a decentish amp (classic 30, peavy windsor, Crate V30) or save up and wait for what im getting the Bugera v55 which sounds amazing

That's a good plan, but here's the problem, i have the money from working, but there's no way in hell my parent's would let me spend more then a few hundred on an amp, i would say my new limit is about $400 dollar's after seeing that guitar center has a 50dollar off coupon

I will look around for the one's you mentioned used and see if i can find any for a good deal..

i want to buy something now that will last me a few good year's, then a few years from now when i have a lot more money and whatever, buy a real good 80's marshall, and a randy rhoad's flying v and that will be that
