Get one of the 5 watt Fender amps (5 watts of tube is like 30 watts of solid state), as they are really nice. You can crank them and then run an Overdrive pedal over them for some sweet classic rock sound. It might cost you 350 $$ for that amp, and a good OD pedal. Go tube for good tone!

EDIT: Plus you can always mike an amp if you need to play a show

so you think a Tube amp is better that SS??..i want something LOUD!!!! =) and something that sounds good
#5
Maybe a marshall mg50dfx, Vox Valvetronix AD50vt, Kustom HV65 or get a small tube amp like SylvaShredder said.

i heard someone talk about a peavey valve king??..and idk are those good
#7
i have heard a peavey valve king stack played live and it sounds good, but it sounded better for metal, although ive never heard the combos, but the reviews are good

modeling amps can be a little overwhelming for some people, and they usually cost more, and ive never heard of a peavey vyper

well sometimes people buy modeling amps and then end up not using most of the amp models, or get frustrated trying to dial in their tone but that peavey seems pretty straight foward

but try one first if you can

yep going to store in couple days =) ok thanks for your help
#15
the peavey vyprs are very good for modelling amps and sound very tube like howver you know what tone you wnat and you can get a good tube amp. i'd suggest a classic 30 for what you want.

main rig:
MIM Tele->VP Jr.->CryBaby->Fuzz Factory->TS808->Carbon Copy->Phase 90->TU-3->Vox AC30CCH+Avatar 212 and Peavey VTM60+Marshall 1960A

Fuzz...It's wonderful and horrible and beautiful and repulsive and so many things all at once.

Pretty much any tube amp in that range.
