i've had my eye on the mesa boogie line, my price range is under $600.

maybe you could buy a picture of one for 600, and just pretend for awhile...

I used a Peavey Rage 158 for four years until I bought my Classic 50 a few months ago.

i have yet to find another one exactly like it, online or in the store i got it from.
i'm still playing it until i can save up some money to get a Fender hot rod deluxe or some other tube amp.
A Yamaha G10, Marshall MG15MSII and shortly will be replaced by a Laney VC30. <3

it's true
i used and still use a kustom kga10

its not as bad as you think though, its pretty decent
I used a fender frontman 25r, loved that amp untill it broke down. Now I'm currently a Vox-man.
Marshall MG10CD Replaced it with a Peavey Enovy 110 a few months ago. Best ss amp money can buy. (Only 300 aswell)
i had a small jay turser, broke it, got an old small fender, and just got a new fender rumble amp
Fender Bullet 15 DSP, then a Marshall MG30DFX which i sold to pay towards my current Peavey Classic. the Fender is down at my dad's (he lives an hour or so away) so that i dont have to lug a 200W tube combo around.
My first months of guitar were spent with a Sammick 25w practise amp. Till I decided playing guitar was for keeps and bought myself an Orange amp

lmao, omg, Adio, you have the best avatar known to man!
I don't even remember what my first amp was, but I played with a Stage 25 for a few of the early years. It was a Univox by another name with a real groovy 70's logo!

Had a white/maple Univox Strat at the same time that I wish I still had.
You Don't Need a halfstack.

You Don't Need 100W.

i love you slats.
My first amp was a Peavey Special 112.

After that came (by manufacturer, not order of purchase)

Crate 50 watt head from the 80's
Crate GX1200 full stack
Line 6 Spider 2 head (cheap backup for tube head)
Marshall Valvestate head
Marshall DSL 100 head
Peavey Butcher Half Stack (tube head)
Peavey 5150 head

Now I have the Dual Rec half stack and am totally satisfied with the gain and volume. May get a 212 cabinet though, still debating.

my 1st amp came built-in the case - came from Montgomery Wards - it was 1965 or 66... I got hooked. Then in 67' I heard Hendrix and it was all over... Now I'm 55 AND STILL FRIGGIN' HOOKED on makin' bloody noise
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!

stuck with the crate glx30 for the first 2 or 3 years. apparently didn't know anything about tone and got the half-stack version of it. i was aware that it sounded exactly the same too... goddamnit.

but now i got an epi valve junior and having a hard time starting to mod it... sounds fine now, but just barely makes band practice volume.

i think after effects and drum set upgrades i'm going for the mesa single rect.
oh it's a long road.

Mine was a little 10watt radio shack amp...sold it. then funny enough i ran into it 5 years later in a pawn shop in my town with all the same markings i made on it and everything so i knew it was my old amp. So i bought it right away for 20 now i play my Carvin legacy.

Started with some Crate GFX212 thing...had it for a few years and upgraded to Hot Rod I wish I knew back when I bought that crate what I know now. That HRD is great and I'm loving it, but hopefully will be replaced by the end of this year with a Deluxe or Twin Reverb.

Started with a Squire Strat and a Danelectro Dirty 30. Then Bumped it up to the strat, Epiphone Les Paul Standard, POD XT Live, and a 1964 Gibson Discoverer 1x12 amp. *learn from this* >>>>>>SAVED MY MONEYS<<<<<<<< Now I'm using the gear listed in my sig. and I love it. My rig has come a looong way and it has a way to go but this is good right now for what I do.

...oh it's a long road.

I hear that! *sigh*

Then: Crate G40CXL

Now: Music Man 50RD with a Carr 2x12 Slant 6V Cab

Still: Yamaha DG-Stomp [it's a damn good processor because its damn good at modeling other amps like Mesa/Marshall/Fender etc...]

...for the gigs im going to be playing its going to be 60% tone and 40% stage look, and I'd like the look of my rig to be able to back up its sound.
