Blackstar ID15 or Cube 40 Both are really easy to dial in plenty of sounds (no cpu needed) and can be had as open box or demo units for $200 with full warranty if you look around. Neither gets near the advertising push like Fender, Marshall, and others but are popular because they sound great. For starters the build quality on each is far nicer than similar priced amps. Used to be a valvetronix fanboy but their amps are starting to look like toys. Fender is trying to catch them.
