which is the best tube amp under the $300 mark?? i was looking at Crate's V18-112, Epiphone VJ's (combo and half stack), fender champion 600, Blackheart's Little Giant (combo and half stack) and the Peavey Royal 8. I play Classic and Alternate Rock. My guitar is a Fender Standard Strat. I cant buy used.

thanks

V Series and Blackhearts.

Out of curiosity, why not used?
I'm putting my GAS on hold
for a couple months in order to pimp my ride.


Don't judge me.

V18 has the most control i think, since it has a gain and volume knob. Or a Blackheart. I say Blackheart myself.

The Blackheart Little Giant is great for rock of all sorts. It's treated me great.

The Blackheart is a bit deeper and more vintage voiced in my opinion. Others may disagree.

I guess it depends on the tubes, because I can get a great modern vibe from it. Could also be that I play more modern rock, so I'm not usually trying to find a vintage tone.

It is definitely deep, though.

Whichever ones in the Crate V series come in under $300.

If you can wait and spend another $100 dollars, (you saw it coming a mile away) you might take a look at a Peavey Valveking.

vj is $100 less than the blackheart. vj plus a pedal?
