I want to buy not too expensive amp (up to 150$). I want to play mostly rock and metal, but for metal I ordered EHX Metal Muff with Top Boost. Which non tube amp (i want ss amp, no tube or modelling amp!!!) choose?

you are going to find it hard to find a solid state amp that does not have any form of modelling, the best thing to do is get a 5 watt tube amp.

most SS amps all have modelling now

get yourself a used tube combo - it will sound great with the EHX, mine rips with my V50...

scope some shops or craigslist for a 5-30 watt tube combo and you will be happy you did

Not always. The TS might want the versatility you get on a modeller.

Return the pedal and you can get the Vypyr 30 with the $150 and the refund. You won't need the pedal with any decent amp you can get for $150. My only advice taking into account the criteria in your last sentence would be a used Bandit 112.

As I said I don't want ANY modelling amp!

I'm thinking about Hughes&Kettner Edition Blue 15R, Crate FW15R (12" speaker?!) and Kustom Contender.

Pretty sure that's a tube amp...?

EDIT: No, I was thinking about the other one
Wait.

try and find an old Marshall Lead 12. it's an old SS combo that came out around the same time as the JCM800 series (IIRC). i got mine for $40, and i've seen them in pawn shops for about $60-$90, depending on the condition. it works great with pedals and had a good built in gain sound. it can get AIC sounds when the gain is maxed out.

I need last opinion:
Hughes & Kettner 15R or Crate FW15 R for Metal Muff?

Is 12" Crate > 8" Kettner's Celestion?
