which one?
A 30, 60 etc


30 is the same as the 60, just bigger, and I agree, that would be perfect for the style of music you play.

Look into Ampeg amps. I don't know if they make a small one, but the one I have is awesome, and I play the same music you do.

Peavey Transtube. I tried one and they sound closest to a tube that I have heard. A lot of people on the site don't like them. If I were you I would try one out.

Roland is good. High gain amp. I don't know about the Peavey and Ampeg amps, I didn't like the Spider amp I played. I have a Marshall along with the Roland. I'd suggest Roland.

I have an old Peavey Envoy 110 I'd be willing to sell, .

Either the Vox AD serious or Roland Cubes would be good, if you're looking into modelers. I'd stay away from lower end solid state Marshalls, like the MG series.

Look into the Vox AC15 or a used Orange Tiny Terror. Perfect for classic rock.

Judging by your list, I'd suggest that you look at some sort of Marshall.

Vox AD30VT would be perfect for you. It's not too loud but it still packs a punch. Otherwise, Cubes are good, Peaveys are decent, Older Line Spiders are good, (the ones with the red plastic,) or an older Marshall Valvestate would be good. For under $300, there is a lot to look at. If I were you, I would go to a Guitar Center and play anything and everything.

It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

one word: craigslist

i bought my MG30 for 100 bucks on craigslist. there was no way in hell i was going pay 250 for that thing - not worth 250. don't pay more than 125 used. my amps clean channel is nice but i think the distortion sucks. plus its got reverb, flange, chorus, and delay. and it has a big marshall logo on the front !!

On ZZ sounds, everyone has rated the MG 10/10

They were probably paid off. Just go play one and you'll immediately see how crappy it is.
