im looking around online for a cheap new solid state 15-20 watt amp, and here are some some that i came up with.

Im leaning towards this one because it has a bunch of crap and it's 100 bucks and it got pretty good reviews.

then there's this one and it's just a 20 watt amp i guess its ok.

then there's this one

and then there's this regular one for 115 bucks

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.

I'd go with the Vox.

I have a higher wattage version of it, the AD30VT, and it can do any style you throw at it, even metal contrary to popular belief. Has tons of built in effects and sounds 10x better than that Line 6 you linked in your first post.

hmm a vox valvetronix sounds great. i might be 50 bucks short tho so i can't get it right away, but it's worth the wait i guess. i found it for $170 on music123.com

umm it's kinda my first amp. like its my first "real amp", because when i got my guitar i also got a little fender deluxe mini amp. technically it's an amp, but it's hard to call it that. its i think a 1 or 2 watt mini amp

epiphone firefly is awesome in that price range and it has excellent cleans, if your after a mainly dstorted sound look elsewhere

so i settled on a Vox AD15VT and it's 170 bucks blemished. Blemished means that it just has some paint issues or amybe a scratch right? should i get the blemished one or do people have had bad experiences with getting blemished things? also do amps usually come with a power cord?

Yea it comes with a power cord. I don't think it comes with a lead though

You should have went to a near Guitar Center or something, and tried to bargain... you could have prolly got it for cheaper or new in the same price. But if it was me i could have got it for $150 new...with free chord and if lucky some other free gift, maybe a strap or pick...

Well its was your decision, but next time if you can, go to a near GC and haggle the heck out!
