good evening from me..i would ask if anybody could help me
i'm playing electric guitar for a year and i'm playing quite a lot. my guitar is an Epiphone SG G-400. and i have a Marshall 15CDR. i heard that G-400 can make much better sound than in my current amp. so i started to think to buy a better amp. but i'm not an expert so if anybody can help me whicn one would be the best.I play mostly rock from about 1970 to 1990(AC/DC, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Pantera).oh and please not very good stuff because i don't have the money and also i'm not a pro thanks for any help!

my budget is about $450 - $500

Epiphone Les Paul Classic
Marshall MG100DFX *SOLD* REPLACED WITH PEAVEY CLASSIC 30

I think a Vox Valvetronix XL will suit you nicely man, It's great for rock and metal and with your budget you can get one loud enough for jamming and small gigs.

wow! this one look preety good :O! I don't need for gigs or anything.I mean if I will buy something it must be a difference between the new one and my current marshall but I don't need a 100 watts of power just for playing at my home or maybe in a garage or something with my band.

If you are going to spend that much on an amp you have much better options. *Cough* Used Orange Tiny Terror *Cough* That amp would pwn it for AC/DC tones.

Then go for something with 50watts or more... I'm saving some cash for the one I linked, I tried it at the store and it sounds really great you can go from classic Ac/Dc style overdrive to Metallica bassy distortion in the twist of a knob! The "normal" AD's are good but they're to vintage oriented for my tastes, the XL can do the vintage stuff and the High-Gain stuff too.

really thanks guysi didn't knew it would go so fast here on UG
do those AD's have just difference in power or do they have different features?
for my tastes i would go for maximum of 50 wattsbut i'm not sure yet

Valve / tube amps ALWAYS have a power difference than SS's.

30-50W valve / tube works great for gigs. You'll need 50-100W solid states.

Tubes just downright sound better.

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

I figured it out.
