Ok, im 15 and I have been playing acoustic guitar for almost 2 years, so i decided it was time to move up to an electric.

I decided to get a epiphone les paul standard, but I am not quite sure what i want for an amp.

I already purchased Native Instruments Guitar Rig SESSION Full, and i have multiple amplitube programs, so i dont need an amp with too many effects.

I dont need anything too loud, because im not going to be able to play too loudly in my room/basement. However, i want something with a decent amount of volume, so if i get a band together, i can play small shows.

That being said I tried out a Fender Frontman II 25R in my cousins basement, i thought it was great, however its pretty much the only amp i have played on exempt my other friends extremely cheap amp. I dont want to go out and by a good expensive amp simply because i don't need one.

So what do you think i should get?
possible choices:
-Fender Frontman II 25R
-Fender FM25DSP (is the 30 extra dollars worth it?)
-or any other amp you suggest around that price range.
CHANGED MY MIND BASED ON RESPONSE:
Peavey Vypyr 15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp or Roland Cube 15X Guitar Combo Amp


Thanks in advanced for the help!

EDIT: price range 99-150 dollars

EDIT:
can someone please give me the reason why i should avoid Fender Frontman.

i want to play a wide range of music, from pop to metal.

Both those amps are bullocks, what kind of music do you play?

By the info you've given me that you have a LP, and are looking at fender amps, am I safe to assume you don't play much metal or high gain music?

If so,
Look into the Vox AC4TV. Sweet cleans, creamy od (and does get pretty heavy too.)
Not too loud, not too expensive by my terms anyway.

My first suggestion would be a Peavey Vypr. They're loud enough and have all the "cool" effects to keep you busy for a while until your ear for sound grows. Best bang for the buck if you ask me.

Or a Fender Super Champ XD. Organic tube sound for $299 is tough to beat.

my advice is that if you already have those programs, what you should get is this http://www.sjmediasystem.com/usb-14-10.html plus these http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Sennheiser-HD-202-Intense-Stereo-Headphones?sku=242412 so that you can plug your guitar into the computer and use the programs. if you're just starting to play electric, i wouldn't think too much about starting a band yet

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

also has a build in attenuator so you can turn down the wattage to 1/4 watt, 1 watt or 4 watt so you can get that amazing tube drive at lower house friendly volumes also cheack the vox valvetronix im not normally a fan of modelling amps but these ones kick ass
good luck on making your choice!
