A brand new amp for $300 isn't going to get you teh sexay tube toanz

Go used.

Definitely used. Hell, even a 5 watt tube amp can get plenty loud, and have much better tone than its similarly priced solid state partners.

check out a blackstar HT-5 you could probably find a used one for $300, maybe a valveking(not great, but could be worse)

and yes I hate modelers as well, and yes you can do a lot better than the peavey vypyr. The vypyr is absolutely the most overrated amp I can think of. Just cause of the price peopel think they're amazing, but when it comes down to it, they still don't sound good.

well the biggest piece of advice I can give when looking for equipment, is to make sure you get the right amp, not the right now amp.

It might take some time but keep looking around for what you really want, don't settle for something else cause you will end up getting rid of it for what you really want later on. Check out ebay if you don't mind paying shipping.


EDIT:Just realized your in cairo, have no idea what music stores/scene is like there, don't know how much help I can be
