I'm buyin a Fender American Standard Strat and I want to upgrade my amp too..

Right now I have a 25 watt peavey rage 258 and I want something better.

Budget for the amp is 500$, help me out

That is kind of a loaded question. Strats can play lots of stuff.

what is your music style and do you play live or anything or with a drummer?

new or used (there are good deals on the latter-check your craigslist.com if you are in the States and tell us what you see. If anything as a guide.

Peavey Valveking 112.

I have one.

I have a strat.

I love it.

That's just my opinion, but it's my favorite amp ever, and I'm not getting a new one anytime soon.
It's a process, not an event.

^How many amps have you played, if the VK is your fave?


To the TS; it depends on what you want from your tone. Specificity.
#6
what music do you play?
what kind of tone are you going for?
are you gigging, touring, jamming or what with this?

EDIT: also, type of amp? ie combo ect.

a peavey bandit 112 is a okay amp if you want to do some jamming and that kind a stuff... but if you want to play gigs and all that you should put a little more money into it and get yourself a fender or a vox amp.. they are just awesome with a stratocaster...
