yea so here is the low down. the amp i got now is a piece of ****. It was great when i got it but it sucks now. So im looking for a new amp. Im in to hard rock music. and im in a "hardcore band" screamo type deal like the devil wears prada, Bless the fall type deal. i got a epi les paul standard which is a great guitar for me. And i currently have a boss Me-50 guitar multiple effects pedal system. So i would like some ideas for a new amp. I would like somewhere close to a 100watt cause we wil lbe doing shows in the near future and besides that fact i need to be heard at practice. But i will absolutely will not go over $500 i would prefer much less then that. more around $400 so please give me an idea.

RG100ES.

Wonderful amp. Probably can find them on ebay for $150-$200.

I want to say a Carvin SX200, well only because it is 100w, I play similar stuff and its about my budget. I plan on buying one.

This isn't the advice your looking for, but I wouldn't cheap out on an amp if I was you.

But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

did you bother to read the budget? It's like one third of the price of a marshall stack.

Maybe some loud crate piece of garbage to hold you over? Or you could just save up and get a decent amp with a couple hundred more dollars.

I don't think those will have enough gain, plus theres a good chance they won't be loud enough if this guy has a loud band.

Wait I thought about it but what if that OD pedal was this?

Edit: Would that work with the Fender Pro/Blues Junior, to get those sounds?
