ok, so ive accumulated a good 1.5k and Iam buying a full new rig...Guitar, Effects, Amp, Cables...hell, even Straps and Picks! anyway, i play mostly classic rock, metal and alternative rock, and a bit of hard rock. my favourite bands are Muse, Rolling Stones, Zeppelin, Purple, A7X, and so it goes. i currently have a fender mex strat which i really like, except the pickups are crap. I have a fairly good overdrive pedal, and im playing thru a bass amp. each of the individual items cant pass 500 bucks, and cant be huge (for amps, 1x12 is an absolute max). what are your suggestions??

thanks
Brasil.

I heard there is uranium gas in the tubes. So you could easily make a little nuclear blast. If i were you, i wouldn't want to start the World War III.

How much wattage are you looking for in your amp?

Do I float through the ceiling?

^Get a Peavey Classic 30, it's a little more than 500 but will do what you want easily.

MFDIT: Also, a Fender Blues Junior ($500), Blackheart BH-5 Little Giant ($350), Bugera V22 ($350), or Blackstar HT-5 ($400) would ALL fall in your budget and do classic rock. HT-5 is my favorite and could do the Zep type stuff and the A7X (as long as a boost was involved for metal).

I was going originally for the Vypyr because of its incredible variety of effects (which all seem pretty good)...would this be something to give up for one of the amps you mentioned?

^Well, I'm just not a big fan of the Vypyr amps. If you want to go modeling, a Line 6 Vetta 1x12 or Spider Valve 1x12 would make more sense. Also, it should be noted that you shouldn't put effects pedals in front of modeling amps, they just don't work together at all. The Vypyr 60 is a 60w tube amp, meaning you won't be able to crank it all. But the Blackstar is a 5w tube amp that gets nice tube saturation at decent volumes.

My suggestion would be:

-Blackstar HT-5 1x12
-Overdrive, Wah, Fuzz, and Phase effects of your choice
-Mogami Cables
-Super strat of some sort (I.E. Ibanez S or RG series)

I second the new Peavey 6505 112, but its a 100$ over your budget.
As for a guitar, you can't go wrong with a high end BC Rich (800$ or so).
As for cables get some Monsters or Mogamis, and picks are a preference, i use Dunlop Ultex Jazz III, and some Dunlop Tortexes 60mm, you might like those.

EDIT: but that would leave you with no pedals. Personally, I only need a Wah, and a nice Analog Delay. So, I'd get an Ibanez Weeping Demon Wah and the Malekko Ekko, or the Carbon Copy.

At least that's how I'd spend that cash, maybe a bit more

My god, thanks a lot!! Ive been looking into the new Sterlings a lot, they look really nice.

Anyway, to the guy that said about the blackstar...I cant buy it because replacement tubes would be a b**ch to find here in Brasil...the blackhearts, on the other hand, look awesome! Might seriously go with those.

Ok, so if I got the Handome Devil Blackheart with the 1x10 Blackheart cab (to save space on the trip back) + a set of quality effects pedals, would I be set?

Don't sell your self short with the 1x10 cab, get the 1x12, and i dont even think the HD can fit on top of the 1x10.

Yeah, if you're looking to go all new, you're probably going to want to save up more. If you'd be willing to go used, you could stretch your budget so much more. Just because you've had bad experiences with used a few times doesn't mean all used equipment is bad. there have been some people on here that get some really amazing stuff for not more than $400. I'd suggest maybe going new on a guitar, and used on an amp.

MiM Sunburst with Maple Neck

Ibanez TS-808
Fender Blues Junior
Marshall JTM60
