I am new to the forums and need some help picking a new amp...

I am in the market for a new amp. I play a lot of Country, Blues and Classic rock. I am looking for a good amp to cover these genres. I have been looking at the Peavey Vypyr 60 and 120 Tube amp and also the Vox Valvetronix 50 and 100. I am going to begin playing small venues pretty soon and would like to know what you guys think about these amps as a good choice for these types of music? Also, I am open to other suggestions as well? I am looking to stay around $800-1000.

Thanks in advance for your help!

A vox vt100 maybe? They're pretty versatile and great for rock.
To buy:

Line 6 MM4
Voodoo Lab power
Mesa Boogie Single rectifier
Boss TU-3 Done
Shure SM58 Done

Traynor YCV50 Blue
Peavey Classic 30/50
Fender HRD/Blues Deluxe

I wouldn't look at any of those amps if you're wanting to spend $800-1000...

Try and find a Marshall 6100 combo. Probably the best amp for those styles in your price range, but willl be a tough find.

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.

Peavey vypyr 60, or the 100w head and a cab. Great amp, the modeling is very good.
Gibson SG w/ Bare Knuckle Aftermaths
Early 90s Fender MIM Telecaster
Squier VM Jaguar
Ibanez RGD7421
Blackstar HT-100
Avatar Vintage w/ 2 Governors and 2 Swamp Thangs
Ibanez EX
Carvin bx500 w/ Peavey 2x10&1x15
For $1000 you could look for a used Marshall JCM or a Vox AC 15/30.

First you put your pants on your head.
Second you dance.
Third you wipe off all the pussy.
