Choosing from those amps is like choosing which STD you want.

If you are paying that much for an amp, get a used peavey classic 30.
Those amps that you asked about are junk.

I play a lot of jazz, funk, reggae, and jam band- the kind of stuff that needs a killer clean tone, plus a good over-driven sound. IDK, I haven't played either of them, but they were reccomended to be by some dude at school.

Eh, their overdrive is pretty lame, IMO.

You should be able to find a used Peavey Classic 30, or you could buy a Crate/Palomino V16. That would be enough volume in both cases to get over a drumset, and would sound WAY better.
That's judging off the price bracket of those two amps.
Are you willing to spend more? What's your budget?

BTW, onboard effects outside of reverb are usually pretty trashy.

Check your local craigslist, too.

I could probably spend up to 500... mabey a bit more if I borrowed some from my parents...

No, the amp I have now is a ****ty practice amp. I need one for practice and gigs. Is the peavy one a combo or a stack?
#12
it'll be somewhere around the height of your electric guitars body, and twice as wide. It will also be as loud as any 100w halfstack you can find for me that costs under $500, but sound approximately Chuck Norris times better

it will be roughly the same size as that amp there. maybe slightly smaller

I don't know, it looks pretty small. I seems more like a practice amp...
Try carrying one round for a few minutes and you'll have changed your mind about that....

Yeah, you could get one cheap used though if you insist on new then I'm sure a few minutes of googling will find a store that's got one in stock.

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.

Alright, that amp looks pretty good. What does it mean by "30 watts into 16 or 8 ohms"?. Also, does anybody here own one? How does it sound?
#20
Cool, what about the 30 watts to 16 or 8 ohms? what's the deal with that?

don't be retarded, the amp is WAY louder than the frontman halfstack.

halfstack does not equal gigging machine -- it just looks cool. Although there are some sounds/tone qualities you can get out of a good speaker cab, a cheapo SS head will NOT bring out good enough tone to really let you hear those qualities anyway.

I have one, the volume is deafening, mic it if you need to play a stadium and your good.

the amp sounds good as-is, and GREAT if you replace the stock speaker and/or run it through a good cab.

honestly, its a great amp. If your gonna play metal, it may not be great for you, but you mentioned nothing about metal so I assume your safe.

Although a metal muff would suit it fine if you need to play metal.

1.) Never take advice from anyone who ever went to school.
2.) Always play them first!

The classic 30 is a very solid choice, but a Blues Junior might be nice.
#25
Yeah, NEVER NEVER NEVER x 6.022 x 10(23) trust anyone at school who recommends an amp.
The classic 30 is a great amp, but I recommend new tubes. It sounds a little dry with the stock tubes. But, that's a cheap upgrade.
