I had my heart set on a peavey vypyr tube 60 but then realised that it is a lot over my budget, so i thought i would get the vypyr 75 for £300 but then i saw VOX VALVETRONIX XL 100 for £250, im not sure what which to get. im in a melodic metal band and we are looking to start giging soon
get the peavey
vox valvetronix make good beginner and practice amps since you can explore various sounds and figure out what you want for an actual amp, but if you're actually gigging don't get one go for either. if you have to get the smaller version then consider picking up a cheap cab at a pawn shop or running it through a pa system
I think a used Flextone MIGHT be in your price range.
