Well my current setup is:

Squier Affinity Strat

into a

Peavey Vypyr 30


My question is, am I better off saving up for a higher end Schecter or getting a low-watt tube amp?


The only tube amps that really come to mind are the:

Blackheart Little Giant

and the

Blackstar HT-5

both 5W tube amps. I don't really want to go any higher as far as wattage because I only would use the amp for bedroom practice/home recording.

If an amp is the way to go which one really fits my style more? I like the sound of both, but its a matter of which one can sound more like the other with the help of a pedal. I enjoy classic rock/metal but I also enjoy some occasional high gain stuff as well.

Please help me choose.
I don't believe in signatures. Ah, sh...

Even if the guitar was 4x more expensive than the amp?

at least you'll enjoy playing it and won't feel a need to upgrade your guitar, so maybe save up for an amp afterwards

Thats just my concern though, because when I do finally decide to go for an upgrade and want to get a tube amp, I can't get a high wattage tube amp that I can crank without complaints, thats why I don't know what amp would be an upgrade.

Go for the guitar upgrade. That peavey should do the types of things you want it to, a new axe would make playing more enjoyable.

Even though I find my Affinity to be a godsend and love it more than my friends MIM Strat.
