Line 6 Spider IV 30

Vox Valvetronix+ VT20+ 30 Watt 1x8" Combo

Peavey Vypyr VIP 2 40w 1x12" Guitar Modeling Combo Amp

So what amp should I get between the 3? Or do you guys have something else in mind (or other models of the same brand)? Budget is about 200 usd. It's just for home use. I play rock (ac/dc, guns n roses, led zeppelin, etc.) and I would be playing with an epiphone les paul standard.

I got a marshall mg 30 cfx from Sam Ash (I don't know why the guy in the store didn't say anything about the amp being awful) a few days ago and before that, I read many forums saying that they suck but I didn't listen and I still bought it just for the brand name , and now I'm gonna return it since I can't get the right sound out of it!

Is this going to be your budget after selling the amp, or will you have more than 200usd if you sell it?

Edit: Just realised you had a thread from the other day and re-posted in it. Keep it to that thread, no need to create a second thread because you dun goofed.

it's my budget after I return the marshall mg

P.S. My bad it's just that I can't find the thread I made a few days ago since I'm kinda new to this website and I don't know where my old thread went. (only way I found my way back to this is I set this thread as my favorite

Of the three vypyr. Two reasons, 12" speakers are a big factor IMO.

That Line 6 is shit

The vox has a tiny speaker.

I would recommend the Vox VT20+.. it has a much warmer sound than the vypyr, and because of the one tube in it, it has more than enough power. (My neighbours will confirm that too^^)

As long as you use it only at home, the 8" Speaker is enough. But for little gigs etc its maybe too small. Can't say anything on the line 6, never tested one.

While the MG isn't great, none of the amps you have listed are much of an upgrade. They may sound a bit better, but at the end of the day you still basically have a starter amp. I would save up a bit and get something nicer.

This amp would be great for what you play and a nice upgrade to your current gear. You could probably get that setup for around $300, maybe less if you shop around. If you can save up and increase your budget to $500-600, you will have a ton of other options as well.

Peavey Windsor Studio is also worth a shout. I have one and it does the Marshall Plexi sound pretty good and it runs $150-$250 used. I have had one for a year and it is an OK amp, for $150 is was a steal.

+1 to the Vypyr


I like the Class 5/Bad Monkey idea too if you can afford it. Completely different than the Vypry though.
