I currently own an Ibanez RG350DX & Peavey Vypyr 30

I was originally looking for a new Guitar >Ibanez or Schecter

But then someone suggested a new amplifier instead.

Since my Vypyr won't really do justice for any expensive guitars, I don't think..


I did enjoy Vypyr 30, but not as much as I had anticipated.

My budget, is under 900.
Nothing Used, it is way too hard to find..

I play Rock, Blues Rock, and NOT metal.

You can buy whatever guitar you want, you don't have to be at a certain skill level to buy one. This is real life, not some guitar-playing RPG where you have to unlock new guitars.

Not gigging.
Solo.
I live in a townhouse, where all the houses are attatched together.
Big watts might be an issue :/

I am moving to seperated houses soon, hopefully next year?

Combo.

I'm not sure if Tubes are the best idea

But. Since I'm FOR sure moving houses..

We'll assume that I live in houses that are seperated.

Um, what's that got to do with anything?
What country are you in? Your budget's kinda useless to us unless we know this.

Because not even at volume 2. My neighbours are complaining about the noise..

Contrary to what you may have heard, tube amps have volume knobs too...


I'm saying tube amps are louder..

If you sell off the Academy starter guitar and amp, and maybe the Cube, you'll have a bit more cash to play with. Although, the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe is hard to beat for that sort of price, if you get a good distortion or overdrive pedal to accompany it (which I currently haven't got round to doing for mine). The Hayden Mofo or the Orange Tiny Terror are also some options.
Fender Lite Ash --> TC Polytune --> Digitech Whammy V --> MXR Phase 90 --> EHX Small Clone --> Strymon Orbit --> TC Flashback X4 --> Rivera R55

Maybe you should check out the <15w tube amps they have out.. Something like the Tweaker, or the Blackstar HT-5 . I highly recommend if you want to improve your tone to go into the world of *dun dunnanana* tubes.

seriously if volume is an issue....you may want to stick with the vypyr. Most great amps are tube amps...and most of them are pretty darn loud....I have a hell of a time keeping the volume down on my Carvin V3.
