I am using a 40 watt peavey amp right now, and i have to turn it up almost all the way when i play with my drummer. It sounds like crap especially when playing clean, and it smells like its frying after we play.

there is alot of feed back and noise when i engage my distortion pedal too. Is this from the amp being turned up so loud?

Also, what is a good amp to get for 300-400 bucks? An amp for practice with a band or small gigs etc.

A good SS in that price range would be a Vox Valvetronix series or a Roland Cube. But if I were you I'd save a little longer and get a nice tube combo in the $500-700 price range.

Music can't really be judged, since it's all on the same level. Unless it's screamo. then it sucks.

Or go for the smaller V16. The V32 will be plenty of headroom for you, though.

Peavey Classic 30's go for around 4-500 bucks. You should be able to find one you like there.
