i was looking on a fender 25r sometime soon, but i have a couple of questions. from what i've heard, the gain channel is more of a bluesy sound, which i like, but could i get a good metal distortion out of it, or should i get a distortion pedal with it? also, how is the clean sound on it? thanks

guitar.
amp.
acoustic.

They aren't great amps. They're not even particularly good amps, and wouldn't be much better than the one you already have. You'd be much better off looking into a small valve combo and overdrive pedal for what you're after.

How much do you have to spend on an amp?

Don't get it, I have the 25r stashed away somewhere, it's not good. It has usable cleans and you can get a nice classic rock crunch on the clean channel with an overdrive pedal. However the distortion channel is terrible, it's really thin and doesn't do metal well. The electronics are unreliable and it breaks easilly.

i play pretty much anything, but mostly classic rock (zeppelin, hendrix, acdc), and i don't really wanna spend much more than $200 or so. and the amp i have is pretty good, but i personally just dont like the sound of the gain channel

It's a great beginner amp.

Other than that...negatory. Look into a roland microcube or cube?

I was at a jam on Thursday, I brought my palomino and it owned the other guy's fender solid state.
