But honestly, for $300, I don't know that your going to upgrade to from the Vyper for what you're using it for. Even the cube is considered on of the better sounding inexpensive solid state amps. If you just want to get an amp, go with the new Kustom tube thinger for $200 and change for a tube half stack.
You don't get more basic than one knob.

Of coarse, If you get the Kustom Defender, you can tell me how you like it so I don't have to buy it. wink wink. But if your willing to pay the extra $150, you'll get an amp you can gig or record with, no problem.

Tiny amendment: electrolytic capacitors (the big ones, usually can-shaped and blue) are the ones that contain a gel and can (among other things) dry out. The smaller ones you'll find in a tone circuit (generally disc or drop shaped, not blue) most often use mylar or ceramic/mica and should last as long as anything (it is possible to blow them up, but you have to try).
