Looking for a guitar amp under 300. playing an epiphone les paul standard and looking to upgrade from the puny frontman 25r so can play larger gigs. play lots of grateful dead/allman brothers/phish. amp recommendations plz. need at least 50 watts and preferably combo so don't have to buy cab. don't give me any advertisement crap that i have gotten before.
classic 30 off craigslist maybe? or a delta blues? only 30 watts but loud enough to get over most drummers and stay sorta clean-ish.

where are you at? US? UK? Australia?
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
Peavey Vypyr VIP 2. Its 40 watts but its fucking loud as hell. It gets louder than my half stack i had before 100 watts, on like 6. I can barely nudge it past one without blasting my ears, and it isnt like spiked volume that shit gets epic when i start cranking it. It definitely gets to ear bleed level. No need to be louder than that and its clear throughout.
