Well these are are good suggestions but I made a purchase today; went with the Fender Super Champ XD for $200. Guy barely ever used it, in perfect condition and it's just a sweet piece of wire. ...

The Vox sounds like a mighty fine little amp, but for the deal I'm getting with this Fender and the reviews on it I think it'll be the best bet. I'm meeting the guy in an hour and trying it out, if...

Thanks all, I'm calling up the guy about the Super Champ today. Sounds like a great amp, might even be able to get the price down a little more.

Very true.


So the amps I'm looking at now are:
Vox VT15
Fender Super Champ XD (craigslist $200)
Peavy Vypyr

Vox being the leading candidate at the moment. More thoughts on these/others?

My roommate is a drummer, granted no drum set at the moment but if we can find some space and equipment it'd be nice to have a little volume but still have a reasonable sized amp for the room. So...

15W sounds about right. My mistake on the 30-50 estimate, it's been a while since I've used anything but my Danelectro travel amp. All good points raised for dorm use, but I'll either keep it low,...

Good dorm amp at a good college price

Looking to invest in a smaller amp (maybe 30-50W, but I'll go by suggestions) for the dorm room that has good versatility and is at a reasonable price (less than $200 would be good, around $100 would...

I did not like the continued rhyme in the first line. Three is fine but two would be divine. I did really like everything after that. Such imaginative word composition.

and watch the sky through dead branches.
there's no music today but still my hand...

Superb idea. Didn't like the rhyming much towards the end, reduced the certainty of the tone. Honestly, that was my only problem, the rest was just your style and I really enjoyed it.

my address book is yellow

I have a good life, very good.
I'm not going to complain like some bitchy little middle class kid.
Instead
I'll find a way to share it with as many people as possible
as soon as possible.
I will.
