which would you get: Orange Crush 30, Line 6 Spider 3 30, or the Peavey Vypyr 30? Obviously everyone has their own opinions about each amp, but what i'm looking for is WHY one may be better than the other. i know that $200 doesn't go very far for buying an amp, but this is just an at home/practice amp. i'm leaning toward the orange and the line 6, since i don't know much about the vypyr. anyone else have any other suggestions for an amp in the $200-250 range? (i'm playing mostly classic, southern, and hard rock, and some blues too) thanks!

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

You could try out a Blackheart Little Giant. I've heard great things about it, although it won't have the gain for the heavier music styles.
Gear:
Ibanez S470 (EMG 81/S/85)
Sigma DMC-15E
Laney VH100R
Laney 4x12 Cab
Ibanez Weeping Demon
M-Audio ProKeys 88
Mbox 3 Pro
KRK RP6 G2's
Plum Team FTW!

Blackheart Little Giant. I think one version is about $250. Does great classic rock stuff, blues, and other lo-to-med gain stuff.

Even though Vypyrs seem to be very nice from what I've heard, I'd get the Orange Crush as I don't like modeling amps... With that said the Spider is out of question to me, not only because it's a modeling amp, but also because of its crappy digital tone.

Just my opinions though

Only 2 of the 6 are hybrids. the 60 and 120 watt. Those two have not hit the streets yet so I don't think anyone has played one yet. Actually, i don't know wtf they have as the information coming out seems confusing. For all I know they all have tube preamps. i'll shut up now.

Here is a chart:

Line 6 - No. unreliable, crap in general and particulary bad at the sounds you'd want.
Orange Crush - No. not a bad practice amp, just not ideal for you. If you wanted to play ratty punk stuff it'd be a great choice.
Vypyr - far too new to pass judgement on

Vox valvetronix - good at modelling the kind of sounds you'd be using, pretty reliable, good effects.
Roland Cube 30X - probably not as ideal as the vox in terms of sound but easier to use and built like a tank.
Blackheart Little Giant - wipes the floor with everything else in terms of the sound quality for classic rock and blues tones, however not ideal for a beginner who wants to experiment with effects (as it has none!) and perhaps isn't sure of "their" sound yet.

I'd say go with the Vox.
Actually called Mark!
