I have a REALLY bad amp at the moment, it cost me about £60 and I got it when I started playing. I need to get a better amp and my guitar teacher told me to get a valve amp as he thinks it would be better for me but I really don't know anything about amps at all. I play all sorts of music and I want to spend about £200-£300 maybe a little more depending on how expensive they are going to be, I haven't done any research yet so I was wondering where to start?

Many thanks,

What styles do you play?
It's not the greatest budget in the world, but as an all-rounder I'd recommend a Peavey Valveking
ohai little sig.
Well music I play is general rock music, nothing heavy really just things like guns n roses and a little megadeth.
lol, nothing heavy, just a bit of megadeth, have a look at that peavey valveking, the laney VC30 and maybe the marshall DSL401

Fender Deluxe Players Stratocaster
Marshall DSL 50 with 1960A
I was looking at the LC30 and VC30 which of these is better and how do they compare to the DSL401?
VC series gets my vote.

So what amp would be best to meet my Guns n roses/classic rock with megadeth style of music?
