@Rhust i wish that was the price. I live in Turkey and Yamaha THR10 has price tag around €550. And beside that i cant find agile or other cheapher alternatives here. If the thr10 or even thr 5 had lesser price tag i would not think on it. (Thr 5 sold around €400 as new in here)

I'm sorry. it's very hard for us to know what the market is like there...
if you can fit the mustang1 in the budget, go for it. otherwise I'd echo the options listed above, like the blackstar ID series


of the ones you listed, I'd try the orange crush

Amp modelers that are JUST the modelling part (Pod, V-Amp, etc) may also be a good solution. Add headphones and rock on until you figure out what you want or your dream amp appears locally etc.

Yamaha THR10C, since it leans toward the classic tones.. The X version is modern... They are loud enough for bedroom practice/jam along with your CD's or utube muzak.

A used Blackstar HT-1 would be an amp to consider. It definitely has the best headphone jack out of any tube amp I've had.

I realize I'm late to the party, but I didn't see this amp suggested, and it might be worth checking out. All tube, $200:

Bugera V5 Infinium - 5W 1x8" Guitar Combo Amp | Sweetwater.com

I've never played it but I'm seriously considering picking one up because the price is great. And Sweetwater doesn't seem to carry much in the way of garbage, so I'm told.

Again, at least worth checking out.

You'll likely see some unhappy reviews if you do a search on here...when they first started out, the amps had some quality control issues. BUT, they have since remedied those issues with the Infinium series.

But like I said, if Sweetwater carries it, I'm not concerned about it. And at that price, it's a great deal. I'm definitely going to pick one up once I can find a couple hundred lying around. :laugh2:

If you are newer, I'd suggest going for something with versatile tones to give you an idea of what you like to hear and what you'd like to play. Vypr, mustang, even a second hand super champ or Vibro champ. Spend as much time as you can honing your playing.
