Hey guys,

I play in a church worship band, and I am looking for a good combo amp under 500. I am currently using a Vox AD-30, and while it's got a nice sound, it's not quite enough, and I am having some issues with the clean channels breaking up, I probably overdid it one day.

Anyhow, I am looking for something versatile - I need a *great* clean sound, but I also want some overdrive/distortion. I don't need screaming metal, but we do a couple songs with full out distortion.

I've been looking at something like this:

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I dunno bout the fallen angel...I know it has nicer distortion the vox but the vox has better cleans i think...someone else will clarify this

The bigger wattage might stop your cleans braking up thats why I put them up.

yeah what the guy said below me to. 15 watts would do you fine. all these are decent amps though whatever you go with you should be happy :P

For $500, you should be able to get a nice tube combo, around 15-30 watts should do you fine.

You could find a wide variety of quality all tube amps in the 30-50W range if you look used. You'd get a better amp that way.

You Don't Need 100W.

People don't say Line6 suck... They say Spiders suck... But that's changed a little now since the Spider III came out...
