Hello, I need a tiny bit of help with purchasing a new amp.

Right now I play a Behringer GM108.

My budget is kind of low, I'd say $150 or so is the limit.

I've kind of set my sites on the Peavey Rage 258

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Peavey-Rage-258-Guitar-Amplifier-with-TransTube-Technology-481336-i1167404.gc?sort=1

and i just had a couple questions:

Is it worth the cost?

Will it work well with my playing of metal, classic rock,and alt. rock?

Is there anything in that price range that will suit my needs better?

And what in the hell is "TransTube Technology"?

It's ok. TransTube is solid state trying to be tubes, but they are still solid state. Look at the Roland Cubes they are much more versatile.

Post there next time.

$150 is a very very low budget for an amp. how long have you been playing/how much do you put into your guitar playing?

And I assume TransTube technology is some sort of Solid Sate/Tube combinatation.


like 3 maybe 4 years



and i put a lot into my playing'

i just have a ****ty amp

Haha, alright, if you just practice with yourself and occasionally play with your friends (innuendo) then you're just about in a price range you want. If you're in or thinking of being in a band or are considering gigging by yourself, you'll want to save up more dough for a better amp.

What sort of music do you play?
Dorkus.

Well, by everything and anything would you mean Jazz, Blues, Classical, Rock (any genre), country. Because in that case you'll need to up your budget, especially at $150.

There are some nice 15w tube amps that can get to a decent volume and aren't horribly expensive, I can't think of any off the top of my head at the moment.

Fender and Epiphone make nice small wattage tube amps.

But do you play by yourself or in a band or do you gig by yourself?
Dorkus.
