I have $500 spending money after like 3 years of of saving lol. I know I want a new amp, the question is, which one? I have been doing my research and have narrowed it down to 4 choices:

Peavey Classic 30

Crate Palomino V16

Carvin Vintage 16

Vox AC15

I don't gig regularly, but I occasionally jam and play in talent shows and stuff with a group of friends. I play a pretty good balance of classic rock/blues/metal. I'm am pretty sure any of these would suit my needs, so if anyone could suggest one of these, or even something that isn't listed here, that would be cool.

hey, i have peavey and its great for classic and blues, though it's not really on a metal side of life... but, quite frankly, you wont get a metal amp for this price. others i haven't tried, but you really can't go wrong with peavey. its a great amp for the price.

youll get any sound you want.


Um.....


NO!!!one!!!!eleven!one

On a lighter note: The peavey classic can actually handle metal well. It's not gonna do scandinavian death metal or anything like that, but with high gain tubes, you can get classic to some lighter modern metal.

Wow...fastest replies evar!
Thanks guys.
Ya there's a local shop here in town thats got a used Classic 30 going for 399
The "metal" part isnt as vital here. I just wan't good overall tone. Besides I heard the classic 30 can get some early metallica-ish gain when you push it. I'll probably just end up getting a good dist. pedal or a high quality Modeling system if I really want it heavy.
