Hey, I'm planning on getting a new guitar or amp.

I'm not sure on which to get first, at the moment I got a crappy squire strat and a Marshall gx15dfx.

Any advice appreciated.

If this is in the wrong place, sorry. Wasn't sure where to post.

you're going to get the most out of your guitar with a good amp.

No bandwagon, get a OD and this should be good. There's a few laneys in this price range as well, but I don't know anything about those.

Are you gigging anytime soon?

Ohk thanks, i'll have a look.

Nah, I don't think so. Just want a good practice amp that I might maybe use a school here and there.

good amp but its not really voiced right to be ideal for the bands he listed. I have a laney VC series and thats fairly similar in voicing to the peavey classic.

laney have an LC series that would be worth looking into, they are more modern sounding and should be good for what you want, especially with a decent OD

EDIT: i just looked up the laney amps on musicians friend and they're far more expensive than the peavey but dont let that put you off because (in australia at least, i imagine it would be similar in NZ) we get a far better deal on the laneys and im pretty sure they're available for less than a classic 30

i had a look and the LC 30 is cheaper than the classic 30.

I saw a Peavey VALVEKING 112, cheaper than both.

if not im probably gonna get the lc30

thanks

the valvekings are know for being quite versatile but most people only really like them after theyve put a new speaker in and changed the valves.

the LC30 should be a solid option for what you want to play but make sure you try one out before you buy one to make sure its what you're after.

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=966325&highlight=legacy+blues+custom Check out that thread. This is a AU guy that got a 30 watt all tube Legacy. It is basically a re-badged Epiphone Blues Custom. It would need an OD pedal for heavier stuff, but it's another option.

I pasted this from another thread. It would be worth a look next to the Laney as well. Both are good amps available near you within your budget.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
