Default Good Amp for a theremin, any good options for distortion aswell?

I recently purchased a b3 theremin and was wondering what are some good amps for it, also some distortion would be interesting aswell. Here is what I bought B3 Theremin With Pitch AND Volume Antennas. My budget is 70-100 dollars

NICE

a buddy of mine got one from that company a few years ago too. (i remember the funny dude in the demo vids).

we ran that thing through a big muff and into my bass amp.

with your budget though it's going to be tight. you're basically looking at a small practice amp. i like the Peavey Rages, little 15watt tanks, run just over $100, has some built in distortion but it's hardly the best. then again any built in effect at that price is going to suck more than not.

A decent one is average around $80-150. Behringer and Danelectro both make some cheap ~30 ones of varying quality. There's also the other end of the spectrum; several hundred dollar boutique effects.
