I've just joined the forum in the hope of getting some advice with regards to my first amplifier purchase.
As someone who has always wanted to learn the guitar, today I purchased my very first, an Epiphone SG400.
I'm seeking advice on a suitable amplifier to pair with it. I am avidly into home hi fi, so choosing the right amp is very important to me.
I have done some research of late, trying to find as many amplifiers that fall into my budget. However like all things audio related, you can't just compare components within a price category as they are not all aimed at the same application.
I have decided that $500 is a reasonable amount to spend, and should get me an amplifier of decent quality and build.
What I am unsure on though are things like driver sizes, power output, and the usual SS vs valve.
The dimensions of my current room are 14.5ft L x 11ft W x 8th H. My room also contains audio visual components and furniture. My taste and musical preferences vary from anything from blues to metal, so I guess if possible I would like an amp that is a good all rounder.
Any suggestions as to some amps I could look at would be greatly appreciated, especially if someone has heard first hand a particular amp with this model of guitar.
Looking forward to people's replies, aswell as getting to know everyone on the forum.
