my friend is looking for an amp nothing to pricey, around 400$ he is wanting one that has really heavy and good distortion, any suggestions???
#2
no he isnt in a band but there is a chance that in the future he might get one going, and yea hard rock and metal
#3
I sugest Peavey Vypyr 75W
Its around 400$ also good for band if he dont have mad drummer it well be fine.
Vypyr have very good effects build-in that aren't so "plastic" like in other constructions in this range of price.
#4
he has played my vypyr 30w he says he wants just a little bit heavier distortion, can you get that out of the 75w???
#5
No sorry...Vypyr 30 and 75 are the same. Only diference is tahat 75 have USB out.

the vypyr is a solid state modeler and isn't going to sound good regardless of which one you get.

even the tube version is pretty poor if you ask me.

i would never dream of anyone ever gigging with a vypyr. pretty sure they'd get laughed at

The brands themselves are nice, but it's the models you need to focus on. The Line 6 Vetta is amazing, the Line 6 Spider is not.

Personally I would recommend a used Peavey combo off of eBay, maybe a 5150 if you can find one cheap.

the vetta is $1700, can't do that.

I meant that as an example. I'm saying that, while the brand may be famous and respectable, some amps in it's line may not be. See: Marshall MG.
