so tomorrow (well it's past 12 so actually today) is my birthday and i have 400 dollars. so i am gonna head up to guitar center and go on a rampage. i need a pedal or two and some other accesories like that because all i have is a guitar.

or i might save it all and just get a nice amp.

so what are some suggestions on things to get?

EDIT: what i mean is i just have a guitar (schecter gryphon) and a 30W amp. so i need some accesories or an amp ican gig with.

No DO NOT buy a Spider or a Marshall MG, they're lifeless, toneless amps. Save for something better.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

You can check out a Valveking 1x12. I had one, it's a pretty rockin' little amp. I got it used for $350 at GC.

Marshall AVT50 maybe. Don't bother with the AVT100 tho it's just more expensive and not any louder!

Roland Cube 60 but the distortion channel is crap. That said you could get a nice valve distortion pedal like a blackstar or somthing to put through it.

You might be better waiting a bit longer to save up for a much better amp.

I just shove a valve distortion pedal through a Cube 60 cause I gig a lot and I've done the whole valve amp thing and they just can't stand up to heavy gigging I do unfortunately. Sound great tho! Depends how much you're going to be moving it round and stuff I suppose...

I seccond whoever said Valveking. Sell whatever amp you have now (or trade it to GC) and buy a Valveking and an O to push it to metal levels.. Should put you in Metal land, with a nice amp to fall back on if you ever want something other than brootal distortionz. Just try the Valveking first; some people don't like the voicing. Just remember, an OD will push it to gainier tones and such.

One more thing. Unless you're playing stadiums or have personal security issues, you don't need a stack, persay. A 1x12" 50 watt tube amp will rip your face off, trust me. Giggable, too, and portable. (Just don't jostle those tubes too much!)

For $400 you can find a nice Peavey tube amp. Try ebay, craigslist, daddys, and musicgoround.
