I want to buy small practise amp (15-30W). I'm going to plug into it Zoom G2. I'm playin' mostly rock and metal, so i need amp that will stand lot of gain and will work out with no problems with multi-fx. I'm choosing between Roland Cube 15, Vox Pathfinder 15R and Peavey Rage 258. Which of them will be the best one? Maybe another?

Please help me.

you can also check some of those low wattage tube amps.

What would you say about Peavey Vypyr? I haven't heard vypyr yet. Is it good enough for high-gains? I need some samples. Is it better than roland cube? How it works out with multi-fx (because i can see that it already contains some kind of multi-fx [like roland or line 6 spider]).

Vyper handles high gain very well. It sounds awesome playing anything from metallica to arch enemy.

If you can afford it, I would go with the 30w version for either, the 15s have a lot less in the feature department.

But which amp?

i just got the vypyr 15 from my gf for xmas....


my initial thoughts were dissappointing, but with tweaking, i play all amp with no issue... it could be a tad tighter, but for the price, it is more than enough to work on technique

I got the rage 258 and the lead channel sucks. The clean is very nice, all u have to do is find a metal pedal or something and bam u got a kick ass gain/clean channel.

At a little tweaking i manage to find a sound similar to the *brown sound*

If possible, play them all and see which ones you like best.

if your gonna use a multi-fx, theres no point of getting a modelling amp like a vypyr or cube.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.
#13
So if there is a no point to buy cube or vypyr, so maybe vox pathfinder 15R or Orange Crush 15R?

That's what I was thinking. Why is everybody suggesting modelling amps? How about a nice low wattage tube amp?

modeling amps + multi fx don't go together. Get a Valve junior.

lol everyone in this thread (almost everyone) has given modeler amps.

Go on ebay and look up the crate v series. Its a nice cheap tube amp that takes quite well to modelers.
