I need something that's a good deal for around $200.
Something around 50 or 60 Watt
And i have a question...is there a difference when something says 60 watt and 60 watt RMS???
Durable
That of course sounds good
Can get loud and not cut out
That has a wide range of effects
and weight isn't a problem at all...

Thanks for your help,
Colten

Increase that budget unless you want to settle for crap. You don't really need that much wattage, 30 watts will suffice.

From the looks of it, that would be settling for crap.


If you seem to play Metal more often then alternative rock, rock, blues and the like, then by all means buy something like this Solid-State amp. If you play the blues and rock more, go for something tubed.

The Peavey Classic series or the Crate V series amps would be ideal.

Terrible amp. I was just at GC today, and I tried it just for kicks and giggles. TBH, I'd prefer one of the MG's I tried... lifeless cleans, wimpy, farty distortion, it was BAD.

A Vox Valvetronix seems like the way to go, maybe a Fender Super Champ as well.

I haven't played the Ravens, but I've heard from a few others that they're pretty crappy sounding.

Really the only thing I can think of in your price range that will cover all of those is a Roland Cube of some sort. However, I'd really consider saving more if I were you, you're not going to get a very good amp for $200. You could maybe get an Epiphone Valve Junior or a Blackheart and add a distortion pedal, but that would still probably be over your budget unless you go used (which I would highly recommend you do).

What you don't want:

Line 6 Spider
Marshall MG

Of course Matrixclaw is right. Doubting him would be like doubting *insert religious figure here*.
