Okay, so I did a search; and nothing really came up to explain all the questions I have.
I'm currently playing an Epiphone Les Paul custom and thinking of upgrading some things so the guitar doesn't sound like crap due to the buzz box of an amp I have.

I play a lot of styles of music daily; From Breaking Benjamin, to Eric Clapton.
Money is not really an issue either, as it can be made quickly through work. (But keep in mind, I would like to keep the costs down)

I was thinking of upgrading my amp to a Hughes and Kettner Edition blue 60r.
Is this amp good for it's price? And would it suit most of the styles I play?

I was also thinking of getting some Seymour Duncans for my guitar.
And of course, some Boss pedals.

So do you think this should all work out for my style/s of music? Or is there something else I should be looking for?

i would start with an amp. unfortunately i am not familiar with the H&K amp but I would also suggest upgrading pickups. I personally thing the epi lp customs or terrific guitars minus their pickups. Maybe putting some gibson burstbukers or others and your tone will greatly improve
Gibson 58 VOS, Gibson Rich Robinson ES-335, Fender Strat, Fender RoadWorn 50's Tele, Gibson LP Jr Special

Marshall JTM45, Fender BJR NOS

I don't really recommend that amp. With the styles you play, you would probably do better with a Peavey Classic 30 and an OD pedal.

What would give you the idea that the Classic 30 is for metal?

Also, why are you "not into Peaveys"? Are you just saying that because you've played some crappy beginning Peavey gear and were turned off by it, or do you actually have a reasonable reason?

I think the Classic 30 would be a great amp for what you want.

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against Peaveys..
Does anybody happen to have a sound clip of a classic 30 being used?

Edit: I checked, and the stores I usually use don't even stock Peavey amps..
What's so bad about the H&K anyway?

I've heard it's a decent amp, but with your budget you can get much better and something like the Peavey is one of your best options.

I see..
Looks like I'll just have to keep myself open minded about Amps then.
Cheers!
