For $500 I can buy a 400W Behringer cab and a 60W Behringer head. At the moment I only own a 10W Squier Sidekick (Piece of terd salad btw). Are Behringer's alright amps? I don't want to go over $400-500 dollars (US) for an amp. I mean the head has everything I need: Loads of effects, no digital components, MIDI, comes with a footswitch. Is this a good upgrade? I dont really want to a tube amp, I mean dont get me wrong tube amps are god but I just wouldnt want to maitenece them.

I highly doubt that.

If you want a shit amp it sounds like it'd be right up your street. If you want a good amp, someone else will help because I can't be bothered.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

It's obviously got digital components considering that MIDI is digital (it's got digital right in the acronym).

I don't think that's the correct use of the phrase "going mad."

well i know my friend has a 100 watt beringer combo and it says it is "analog modeling" on the front but it has digital effects but it really can't do any tone decently, you should look at other amps around the $500 range, and don't be turned off by tube amps, you don't really have to do much (if any if you treat it right) maintanance

yeah there arent that good
there not total crap but there r better ones
look at some of the hybrid amps that line 6 makes they amy b out of ur budget but they r worth looking into

Can you give me some ideas? I've been browsing amps and almost all of the ones I've seen have only like 3 effects (Chorus, Flanger, and delay) and reverb.

ive got a behringer gmx212 with a fender cab 412
and.. idk its pretty good, i use a me-50 for distortaion though sometimes so meatl tones
its good-ish for rock, the cleans arent the best, but its deffinatley worth looking into

Now don't be TOO rude...

But there are many topics here, with most beginning with a question like, "Is this teh g00d ampz?" and they post a link to a Marshall MG. For an amp around that price range, you can get a decent tube amp. Behringer, for lack of a better term, is absolute ****. Krank, B-52, and Peavey all make good quality tube amps for the price you are looking for.

Hundred or so people, inside and outside playing.
Any decent place will have a mic/PA system for me.
Im thinking of 120W
I will use it for home practice as well.

Well here are some amps i recommend (check them out first, i'm not the end all knower of amps):

Line 6 Spider Valve 112 ($700): tube but only 4 so it's more of a hybrid than all tube, 40 tube watts so pretty damn loud, it's a little expensive but i found that this is an excelt modeler for mid to high gain stuff, really good sounding effects, not so great for lower gain stuff, and 200 times better than the cheaper spider

Line 6 Flextone III plus ($600): solid state, 75 watts (plenty for you) I have no expenerince with this but i have heard it's a good modeler for the money, plenty of FX

Randall RG50TC ($560): all tube, 50 watts (tube watts so it's gonna be ****ing loud), no fx's (an fx pedal would work fine but ask someone else, i know nothing about them), this amp is suited for mid to high gain stuff, i highly recommend checking this out, it can go vintage sounding but it's more modern voiced

Peavey ValveKing 112 ($400): 50 watts, all tube (LOUD) i don't have much experince but i have heard it's a good tube amp on a buget but can't do metal with an OD pedal and it really needs a speaker and tube upgrade, it's pretty modern sounding for the short time i tested it, no fx's but a fx's pedal would be fine

hope that helps, but i can't stress how important it is to try out all the amps and see which one works best for you
Edit: lol forgot prices
