i have decided that i need a big tube amp or a head and cabinet, i play a lot of punk/hardcore so it needs to have a good distorted sound, but i also play john lee hooker esque blues and white stripes style stuff. i have an epi sg special and an epi dot studio. a fender m80 chorus, peavey rage 158, and a fender champion 600. my max budget is 500. i have been looking at blackstar amps but ive never played one, egnater, vintage silvertones, the Jet city picovalve, and the Ibanez TSA
