Just sold my Fender Cyber Deluxe (mostly because of car issues and needing the money for repairs). I liked the amp mostly because of it's versatility even though it did have a nasty hiss at higher volumes. I'm looking for something in the 15-30 watt category as i'm more of a bedroom player and don't play with others too much. Just need something portable. Also i would like something with a good overdrive channel. I play a lot of the early 90s stuff (Tool, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Porcupine Tree, etc.) so i need something with some muscle. I do enjoy a good clean channel as well. Built in effects not a must but wouldn't be a bad idea. I've seen some Vox's out there as well as a few other amps that are fairly cheap and seem to offer a good bang for the buck.

P.S.- anyone have any experience with these?

Usually I shirk at the sight of the letters 'DFX', but the Edition Blue is alright for the price. You could go for the Epiphone Valve Jr/Blackheart Little Giant/Peavey Royal 8 if you want 'proper' overdrive, but don't expect much in the way of built-in gain. They're all 5-8W, which is at least as loud as a 30W solid state.

Well the thing is, i really want something with some balls. I play a lot of heavy stuff. When i had my Cyber Deluxe it basically stayed on the 'Modern' setting the whole time.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Ok, any other suggestions? Anything i haven't looked at or should look at? I wanna get as many options as possible.

I once used an SG on stage. I killed three people in the front row and I was only tuning up. It's THAT powerful.
