First of all, you really only need 30 watts out of an un-miced amp for gigging with a drummer. Sometimes less depending on what kind of amp. Secondly, give me a price range, and I'll tell you what kind of amp(s) you should look for.

I'd avoid Randall RGs. They're okay, but you can get much better stuff in the same price range. Look into a Peavey Ultra Combo. I had the head version, and it was fuckin' killer for Thrash and Death tones. Got it for $200. You can't really go wrong with Peaveys. Even the Windsor sounds awesome when you mod it. Line 6's are alright, I use the Spider as a practice amp, and it does it's job enough, but it's got a very digital tone, but as I said before, the HD147 and Vetta are both seriously awesome amps.

As for the Vyper/Spider Debate, I would definitely go for the Vyper. But if you're open to looking into other things, give me your price range and I'll throw you some suggestions.
