right now i have a spider 3 and as everybody knows, it sucks. its awful. i need an amp that can have crisp blues tones along with hard rock distortion. i have an epiphone les paul standard. I think $500 is a good estimate for how much i want to spend. please help.

Fender Blues Junior. the cleans are just plain awesome, and they take a pedal VERY well. the limited edition red one is particularly sweet, as it has and upgraded speaker.

you could also look at the Orange Tiny Terror

are you looking for something tube or solidstate? because I have a epi lp standard and a orange crush and its perfect for that.

the tiny terror rocks too.

if you wanna play blues, you pretty much NEED a tube amp. solid state sounds too sterile.

Um, BB King uses an SS amp... Your point is not a complete truth.

That being said, I prefer tube amps for blues.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Lab 5.

for the record, i said PRETTY MUCH need a tube amp. generally blues is a genre associated with tube overdrive. BB King's setup is costing in the 10s of thousands, so im not surprised it sounds so good.
