ok im thinking about getting the http://www.guitarcenter.com/shop/product/Vox-Valvetronix-AD100VTH-and-V412BK-Half-Stack?full_sku=481482 (valvetronix AD100 half stack). I play many types of rock. i like my my overdrive to sound a little like The White Stripes or The Black Keys. My guitar is an American Strat. So is there a better amp for the same price that is better than this one?
I have the halfstack, it's not worth it IMO. get the 50w 2x12 instead.
If you need more volume get the 100w combo.

Edit: Or you could go tube for those money instead.
If your gonna spend that much you may aswell get a valve combo

anything abovt an AD50VT isn't worth it compared to other options on the market
In the $700 range, you have a choice of a number of tube combos that will sound about as loud as that stack, and much better at high volumes.

Check out the Traynor YCV 50, Crate V50, and maybe the Ampeg Reverberocket.
You Don't Need a halfstack.

You Don't Need 100W.

i love you slats.
for that much money, there are a lot of other amps you should be looking at. for example:
fender hot rod deluxe + od pedal
peavey classic 30
epiphone palomino v30 (or v50)
traynor ycv40
vox ac15 if you really want a vox

also look on ebay because you may be able to pick up something nice for around $700 used.
