I'm looking for an amp that is loud enough to be heard in a band (we play in a garage), but only have 300$. Trying to look for something at least decent and so far I've had these amps in mind:

Vox VT40X 40W 1x10 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp
Marshall CODE 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp Black
Peavey Envoy 110 Guitar Amplifier with TransTube Technology
Peavey VYPYR VIP 3 100W 1x12 Guitar Modeling Combo Amp Black
Blackstar HT Series HT-1 1W 1x8 Tube Guitar Combo Amp

I don't really know about the Vox and the Marshall since they haven't come out. My question is out of these amps which one seem to be the best and if not, should I wait for the Vox and Marshall to come out. I would really like to know.

I mostly play Pink Floyd, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Queen, Aerosmith, Led Zepplin, and Pantera.

My guitar is an epiphone les paul 100

Of those choices I'd go with the Peavey Vypyr VIP3. Asking for opinions of unreleased modeling amps isn't going to get you much.

Where are you located and are you willing to buy used?
Guitars:
Jackson Kelly KE3 - MIJ (Distortion/Jazz)
Jackson DKMGT Dinky (EMG 81/85)
ESP E-II Eclipse Custom (JB/'59)
ESP LTD EC-1001FR (EMG 81/60)
Fender MIM Strat

Amps:
Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster 212
Laney IronHeart IRT-Studio
Peavey Vypyr 30
Peavey ReValver Amp Sims
TOOOO many T.C. Electronic Pedals. . .

The Vypyr VIP3 is a decent amp and plenty loud

or wait until the marshall is released and make your own call

The HT1 will NOT be loud enough (so you can rule that one out). I've got one and I use it for "bedroom practice".

+1 Peavey Vyper series are good modelling amps for the price.

I know Marshall has a generally solid rep, but Peavey has been on a roll with the Vypyr line for awhile, and the VIP line offers the ability to use it for bass and acoustic guitar.

I would definitely look what you can get used too.

Of what you have listed I would say go with the Peavey Vypyr, if you are willing to go used you could probably pick up a Peavey Valveking or Marshall Valvestate for your budget or under.

+1 for a used Valveking

I have a Vypyr 30 and it is pretty damn good to be honest.

Although that Marshall Code is out in the UK, it's also pretty decent.

Yeah seems like I might end up buying a Vip 3 but now that I think about it is there any good used amps out there?

The vypyr tube is the better amp, I didn't even see that it includes the Foot pedal, so I'd deff take that deal
