I recently bought a brand new single coil Mexican Fender stratocaster(love it). I also have been looking for a great amp to accompany it. First of all my price range is up to 500 dollars since I am not looking for anything big, just for small gigs and home practice. As for my musical taste I'll give you a list of some bands and artists I like: Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Strokes, Jet, and The Red Hot Chilli Peppers. I'm not a big fan of metal so please don't recommend any amps suited for metal. Thanks in advance.
used peavey classic 30

for those bands go for a tube combo trust me you cant go wrong (dont get a valveking1!!)

07 Fender American Deluxe Strat
07 Fender Custom Telecaster
09 Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster
09 Fulltone OCD V.4
10 Ibanez WH-10 V.2
09 Splawn SuperStock
10 Jet City JCA-20
97 Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

Yeh the SICK! bit sounds a bit stupid.

Thanks for the reply I'll look into it. Something I forgot to add: An amp that would suit me would be an amp that produced the clean, bell like sound of Hendrix, and a warm crunchy overdrive like the sound of The Who.
look on ebay for a used classic 30 im saveing for a classic 50 now the maps are made well and sound kickass

You have no need for any SS modeling, effects loaded amps for the music you play. All you need is an amp with good tone and maybe a clean and lead channel. Or maybe just the volume knob on your guitar and/or an OD pedal.

A used tube combo from Peavey, Traynor, or Ampeg would suit you very well.

Line 6 Spider III 150, my friend has one and it's great and loud enough for what you need.


WRONG. As a user of a Line 6 Spider III, DON'T get one. They're versatile, but it really doesn't have any great tones coming out of it.
