There are many, many guitar companies that make really good copies of name brands at a value price. For example, I never knew about Agile before coming to this site. Is there any such thing with tube amps? Meaning an off brand that makes a quality product for a value price.

Bugera does this with peavey. 6202=6505. 6260=5150. 333=XXX. 333XL=JSX. There issue was durability in years past (some issues with catching fire...I s**t you not) but I think they should be fine now.

Peavey's VK series is a good value.

If you go used everything is a good value

Wish I could move this to Gear & Accessories
Charvel So-Cal (SH6TB/N, killswitch), Jackson RR5FR (TB6/Jazz, Drop C). Joyo pxl pro.
Loop1=Crybaby from hell, Boss PS-5, Seymour Duncan 805 or Green Rhino, EQD Hoof or Earthbound Audio Super Collider. Loop 1 into ISP Decimator II.
Loop 2 (FX loop)-Line6 M9, TC Spark Mini. Loop 2 into mxr 10band. All into a Peavey Triple XXX 212, Ibanez IL15.
