Dear GG&A board,

I am in the market for a new amp. I've done lots of research but I think it's finally time to see what the good people of UG have to say. Without further ado...

- the absolute maximum is $450
- Versatile! I like me cleans, overdrive (think dirty blues) and a more modern rock overdrive (3 Doors Down, 311, Foos, Audioslave etc)
- Tube or SS, doesn't really matter, but good tone is a plus. Leaning towards tube.
- handles pedals well
- 15 - 30 watts - I won't be gigging but in the near future, but being heard over drums is a must (practice)
- Used is all right, new is preferred
- Combo

and I know this is a weird question, but do you need a cab for an amp head?

Thanks!

Peavey Valveking 112. I think its 50w, but it can do all of those things. Im getting one in the near future.

To answer your question, you do need a cab for a head.

Suggestions -

Peavey VK112
Vox AC-30/AC-15
Traynor YCV40 - I don't know, I just like to have headroom
Laney LC-30

Peavey Classic 50 over Valveking and C30 IMO.

EDIT:Used of course...

Check a used Fender Blues Junior, and/or Pro Junior.

Some SERIOUS searching could yield a used JCM800 combo, but good frucking luck.
