Guitar amp

Hi

I am looking for some serious advice.I am looking to buy a amp and i dont know which ones to look at.

Im just going to use this at home so it doesnt have to be too loud or fancy.Wattage wise iam probably looking for between lets say 30w to 100w.

Budget wise ill probably say between 100 to 300.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

I reckon the Fender Superchamp X2 is pretty great.

It's 15 watt tube, and pretty loud. For home playing it's perfect, and it's also great for recording and playing in smaller venues (cafes etc). For louder gigs connect it to a 1x12 or 2x12 and you're ready to go. Mic it up and the sky is the limit. I have played both indoor coffee shops and outdoor festivals with my Superchamp.

Looks like it goes for about 300.

Take a look at this if you haven't:

Specifically under: "Recommended Amps for the various price ranges."

And I would recommend a Roland Cube 30. I think that must be in your price range.

what genre do you play?

what is your local main city?

check out www.gak.co.uk and www.thomann.de for an idea of what you can afford

i'd personally recommend the Vox VT20+ amp, it can do every genre well, perhaps not as good as an amp specifically designed for that genre, ie it isn't better than a mesa boogie would be for metal, but it's better than a Fender Frontman would be for metal. the frontman however exceeds in clean tones, nothing else, however the Vox's comes close.

if that makes sense
