Hello guys,well,to begin with,I've been playing classic guitar for one year and half,but what I like is rock and metal,and you know that I cant play them on a classic guitar.That's why I decided to buy an electric guitar,I've already chosen an affinity HH squier with a SD TB-4 in the bridge,and a digitech RP360XP.but what I haven't decided is the amp.I want a modeling amp,even though I'll have an Multieffects pedal,because it would be easier to carry just my guitar and the amp.Noow the problem is the amp.I know you're experienced guys in this stuff,so I want you to help me.

-Fender Mustang I v2
-Vox vt20+
-Peavey Vypyr VIP 1

FWIW I liked the Fender Super Champ XD when I tried it. There's like 15 slots, it can be reprogrammed on a computer.

I don't understand why you want a modeling amp if you're getting an RP360. For a little more coin you could get a used "GASP" Crate V18 1x12. Heck even a Crate V5 is in your price range would work, and with a speaker upgrade it turns into a little tone beast.

I know people hate on the Crate. But the V series was pretty good, and they can be found cheap as Crate amps don't hold resale value.

Out of those, the Vypyr. You might want to look into getting a used Vypyr Tube 60. I don't see much of a use for the Digitech unit, the amp should be able to do the work you'll need for rock and metal. Try getting a slightly better guitar as well, you'll be satisfied longer. c:

I have a Mustang I and a Vypyr VIP 2 and the RP360XP as well. I'd recommend the Vypry for rock/metal.

Obviously this guy doesn't know how to get good tone out of a cheap amp. It's an acquired skill. It'd be useful to learn, I suggest trying it when you get done being a keyboard warrior.

Anyways, the Marshall Valvestate is a better amp than any of the ones you listed, kid. Anyone who disagrees can kindly suck my dick!

The Valvestate is, at best, a one trick pony and it's not even a particularly good trick.

Saying that it's better than the ones listed is like saying that a crap sandwich is better with wheat bread than white.

If it meets with your approval, well and good, I'm sure a good audiologist could explain why (and perhaps offer prosthetics to cure the problem).

I however cannot.

Have a nice day.

Actually the Valvestate is not that bad. I have the VS8100 head and it is pretty good, actually covers pretty much all styles. A friend bought their combo version, same head +2x12 Celestions at the time I bought mine and actually his sounded better than mine as it was well matched to the speakers. The old Valvestate series is actually pretty good. On this one I'd stand with 1201ZJ.

So when I looked at your profile, I noticed you own at least 10 amps and at least 10 guitars. You know, not everyone is a silver-spoon like you. I'm giving the guy an honest answer to his question, assuming his price range isn't very much. So get the **** out with your elitist douchebaggery if you aren't going to say anything productive.

Furthermore, what grounds do you have to state that the valvestate is a one trick pony? If anything it's far from it. Great clean tone, good effects, good reverb, and again, if you know how to get a good tone (how about this) out of ONE amp, which obviously you don't, the valvestate will work for you and will in fact cover more ground than you think.

Have a wonderful day and God bless!

Posture all you want, the VS is only a decent amp by comparison to the crap in the OP.

Surely you don't expect me to feel bad about my personal gear addiction? I'm a veritable piker in comparison to some here.

Keep suggesting crap and I'll keep calling it like it is.

Love ya sweet cakes!! XOXO

Valvestates are complete crap.
I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth - far from it. See a Valvestate in my gear? You know why not? They're shit. I saved for what I wanted, nothing was handed to me. I had a VS8100 in my band room for a couple of years. It was a complete pile of crap. My first amp (Yamaha G100-212) was better and it hasn't been turned on for decades.
Don't cry poor to me. I'm poor and I gig with a Randall RM100.

I can dial some pretty good tones on a valvestate amp.

I have a vox vt15 and it was the first decent amp I bought and I still play it all the time as my practice amp in my bedroom. It is a very versitle Lil modeling amp that wasnt crazy expensive. I also have a Mustang 3 I've had for a while and been trying to sell that I was nvr crazy about, it compares nothing to the tones I can get put of the vt. Just my opinion though wat do I know I'm just a newb

Nah dude, they were flooded from before, especially after a few years of doing "Give me kick, snare, kick, snare...ok, now stop I new to adjust the mics...noooo, don't play those toms in my face"

Seriously though, there are some good amps in the VS line.

Yeah, got caught at a mall parking lot, spent the night there and was several blocks from home. I think our city gov't needs to be strung up and whipped, they tax the sh*t out of us ( we have "rain tax" - when it rains on your yard you pay the city tax for the water) and 20 mins of heavy rain flooded all the freeway underpasses that got flooded last time and they supposedly fixed to prevent that
The small towns around us that got the same amount of rain but are not overbuilt had no issues whatsoever. Time to move somewhere uphill, I guess, or at least somewhere where I won't have the rain tax. Our mayor is utter human garbage.

hahaha this is beyond hilarious. i am sitting on 23 electrics and 15 or 16 tube amps. i didn't have a silver spoon. quit whining. valvestates aren't that great. maybe for the HM-2 tone they can pull off. but the certainly aren't versatile or have remotely decent built in effects.

come at me.

Arby is a great guy. he gives good advice. you just don't want to hear it.

come at me, again. do it.
