    What do you play? Do you already have an amp? Are you in a band or anything?

    At that price range, anything by Peavey is an excellent choice.

    How many watts are you looking for? If you are just a beginner and playing in your room than 60 to 100 watts should be more than enough.

    that is an excellent amp. They were discontinued and replaced with a newer version. You can find them on there for dirt cheap. i got my LA15 for $125. Its plenty loud.
