So I'm going to be working with an Epiphone Les Paul standard in the near future. I'll probably just be doing amateur recording and some basement gigs. My problem is that I need help finding a suitable amp. Here is what I'm looking for:
Affordable, definitely under $1000
Loud enough to gig with
Works alright with pedals
Also, most of the stuff that I like to play is pretty Garage-y and simple. The heaviest I go is like a Black Sabbath sound.
B-52 AT-112 if you can find one. Failing that, a Fender Hot Rod with a decent distortion pedal would be one way to go. Another thing you could try is a Peavey Classic 30, though you still may need the pedal to get what tones you're looking for.
