Alright, so I'll make this short and somewhat sweet. My budget is at max $500. Also, I play some funky stuff and classic rock like Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Edgar Winter Group, etc. I've been looking at a couple of amps so far, but I still need advice on what to buy. I don't have a preference on brands, so any input is appreciated.
Thanks guys!

Cheapest one I can find so far is around 599, and the gig is in a couple of days. Any other alternatives?

Used Classic 30 or Valveking with a speaker swap.


Should have looked at the currency, my bad.

+311.

Valveking is a great little amplifier.

Thanks guys, I found a local Valveking 2x12 for 325, so I may just snag that.

I had a VK 2x12 for a long while and it should cover what you need. Its plenty loud enough and with a speaker swap you can get about any sound you want. The stock speakers are ok, nothing to brag about. Maybe get a boost or a fuzz pedal to change things up if you like.

Its also got a cool A/B power control knob in the back where you can adjust the power that goes into the amp. Makes for a huge variety of sounds.

Check the gear rentals in your area so if possible you can save the money for the amp you really want instead ofsettling.

I'd honestly fap to anything with a set of genitals as long as I find it aesthetically appealing.

something from egnater would suit you well. the rebel series, and my tweaker 40 watt is great for all forms of classic rock.

The Valveking is a fair enough amp, I owned one for a while. But it's nothing special. I would much rather have a Classic 30 or Egnater Tweaker.

The Chadwick would prolly be the pick if you can swing it though.
