imo you'd be better off with a tube combo at that price, with an overdrive pedal to boost it into hi-gain tones. both the spider III and Flexwave stacks are stacks of ****.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

A Peavey Valveking or Randall RG50TC are far better choices than those two peices of crap.

I've owned the FW series and played the Spiders. TBH The Spider has a nice "Insane" channel with tons of gain. But only for low bedroom volumes when playing along with music. But personally, even though I reverted to a SS combo still, tube is the way to go.
I got some good guitars, yo.

used 5150 combo is the normal recomendation. Peavey valveking, or maybe a B-52 amp. I haven't tried Bugera amps, but i've heard they're pretty good for a budget amp

Another vote for the Valveking. Please do not get an arachnid. Please. It should be outlawed to manufacture those horrid pests.
