I've finally got a decent guitar and still stuck with crappy practice amps. Now that I can finally afford it, I'm in the market for a new amp. Hoping for under $300 US, but willing to spend a bit more if I have to.

I don't plan on gigging, I play at home. But even at home I feel like crying when my brothers Line 6 spider blows my Marshall MG10 away..
So I'm buying a new amp. I play only rock, during my practice sessions 99% of the time its set to overdrive. I've got a Boss DS-1 pedal but its not very noticable on the crappy Marshall. Fav artists include Pantera, Van Halen, Metallica, etc..

Using a Dean Razorback (shards if anyones wondering) that's got the stock Dimebucker. Looking for an amp with lots of crunch to complement my guitar, for around $300. Post for whatever you think would be good, and I understand 300 bucks wont cut it for a great amp..so if you post a $500 one I won't bite your balls off.

Did some quick research and found these as possible choices, but I'm open to anything.

Wonder how many people are going to say peavey valveking in this thread


if it was under $300 .... You aren't really in the market for an amazing amp when you have 300. If you were lucky you might be able to find a 5150 for 500 (used)

ive got a nice crate amp i bought from a garage sale for like 65 bucks (US). It works fine, and the guy bought it for like $300, so i thought id made a sweet deal.

my advice is to buy used amps, either from a rummage sale, or from any guitar store or even a pawn shop

Try a used Crate V16 and a used Valveking. The valveking has more gain on tap but the V16 definatly has a better tone for clean through harder classic rock. The valveking would be better for heavier stuff like Metallica and Pantera though.
