Ok so i'm looking at buying a new amp (crate 15w is the biggest piece of **** ever) and a mfx pedal. My price range is 300-350 USD. I'm fairly set on buying the Boss ME-20 pedal. I want a good amp that doesn't blow, and it doesnt need any FX, because that's why I'm getting the pedal.
Suggestions?

edit: I've been thinkign about the Peavey Rage 258, and the Line 6 Spider III 15w, but im open to anything

No idea on amps, but do you really want or need a multieffects? Are you just looking for OD/DS sounds and maybe some chorus/delay effects?

If that's the case, just buy separate pedals. Otherwise your paying out for something that may do the job, but not very well, and have a lot of waste fx you'll never use.

I'm getting the MFX mainly to mess around with a lot of different FX other than distortion, and i want some wah, OD, DO, flanger, and delay and i dont have cash to buy individual pedals.

if you want your MFX to sound better, buy a small tube combo (5w) to run it through.

yeah, i was going to suggest the same things. these are the only tube amps that you can use for your style of music in the price range.
