i think your only option is a used roland cube or peavey vyper, which are pretty good options to have

I've got a vox vt - great sound for the money, comes with enough effects to keep you fiddling with your knobs all day (if you're that way inclined) and you can get pretty good second hand ones on ebay for not very much. The variable power is great for practicing too.

Whatever you choose, it's a no-brainer to go second-hand rather than used (for your budget).

Look for a marshall mg series amp

they are solid amps and have great tone

much better than other amps in that price range

no they really don't

Tone is in the fingers.

What you really need is a new amp.

I have been hearing about MG amps lately. I have heard good about them, but only a few times have they been talked about here.

Bad advice. Actually can't get much worse in terms of tone. (Yeah, I know it's subjective but come on..)

I second the Vypyr recommendation and would keep an eye on the local used market. The Cube's are pretty solid too. Go try a few out if you can and see what you like.

I would say that the MG series amps are better overall compared to the Vypyr and the Cube.

Hell no. MGs are on par with Line 6 Spiders.

If you can live without the effects the Peavey Bandit 112 is a very good practice amp. You could probably pick up a used one for your budget.

Its not a bad amp. I'd still go for a vypyr personally.
