Ok so I've been playing for about 6 yrs now, and I've decided that I want a new amp. Currently I've a 15w Spider III Line 6. I play mostly stuff with a classic rock kind of sound.
I don't really know much about amps so if you guys could give me some recommendations I'd really appreciate it.
My price range is no more than $800.
Thanks

I got my sister pregnant once. Yeah, that was awkward, but mostly because she's 6 years younger than me.

thanks i'll look into both of these suggestions. but also do you guys recommend spending the money for a tube amp?

either Super expensive SS or tube amp

lower end SS dont worth it

tube amp will give you a lot better tone. especially for the classic rock stuff. id save up and by a decent tube amp its definitly worth it

Tube amp for sure. If you have been playing for 6 years it is definitely time to move up to a tube amp. I myself enjoy the tone of Carvin tube amps like the X100B. You should check them out.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

The Tiny Terror is a good suggestion. Either the head into a 1x12 cabinet or the TT Combo.

But vintage amps are also fun and for $800 you should be able to get a good one without any "issues", maybe an old Fender BassMan from the 1960's.

digital amps are like Fapping, its good but nothings like the real thing.

Well, I don't like the Tiny Terror suggestion. It's way overpriced, it's muddy, and it's not versitile.
Good luck finding an AC30 for that much. If you find one, get it.
If you're not gigging look into the Vox AC4.
Maybe look into a Bugera V55 head and a decent cab if you're gigging.

Winnar.

Invest in an OD, though. It's stock drive channel is a little bland.
