Warmer sounding compared to a lot of SS amps.


Ok, i'm looking for a good versatile amp with affordable price (300$) for small room praticing so i will play as quiet as possible.
What do you think will be a good choice?

hahahahaha, awesome!.
+1 for the Line 6 Spider III. Just make sure the wattage is 30 watts or more so you don't have to really crank it to hear it good.

Buy one of those starter packs at Wal-Mart. You know, the ones with the 5w amps. That way you'll have a cheap, incredibly portable amp, plus an extra crappy guitar to throw around.

I'd say fender super champ XD is a solid choice,as are the blackheart models or some crates if you're looking to go tube.

i would say blues/rock i think i will choose one of those:

Roland Microcube
Roland street cube
Vox DA5

Any opinion?

EDIT: i have a line6 pocket pod, would be good to get rid of an amp and just use headphones until...??

Look around and see what sounds good to you. Probably 90% of the people offering you advice have what can be called a tin ear. For inside the home practice there's no need for an amp to be really loud.
IMHO Roland 20 & 30X Cubes, Vox's AD series, Fender 25 & 65DSP & Vibro Champ and last but not least Line 6 spider III 75 W. All are decent amps and fall in your price range. They will serve you well as long as they aren't getting dropped ,tossed,stuff piled on them or everything cranked to 10 most of the time.
Take your time and play as many as you can then you mae the decision.

I'm still going to say Fender super champ XD on this one.15 watt tube amp with built in effects and voicings that range from clean to rock tones and it's only 300 dollars.

What's the advantages of thisamp over a Roland cube?
#23
i dont think there are really any advantages of the fender over the cube.

it's a matter of preference.

but in your case, you might just want to pick up a pair of headphones.

in the small, versatile, playing alone, amp genre. i like the $125 microcube.

no need to get 30 watts, if you arent playing with anyone else. and the microcube has all the effects in a nice battery optioned package.

if you want to jam with another player from time to time, then the cube 30.

if you are jamming with a drummer or more, then you can move up and out of 30W range.

in this price range, tube amps can be nice but not very versatile.

i also own a Vjr. and it's really nice, but you'll need a couple of pedals to get the most out of it, especially at lower volumes.

It's probably about the best modeling amp out there, but you may want to consider the Valve Junior with some pedals.

Hrmm... Stay away from spiders. SO about the microcube, well it's a good amp for the price, the cleans and the metal sound pretty good for what it is. But I don't know if its just me or what, but I can't stand the *rock* distortion it sounds like pooo... it's like wayy to much mids. So I dunno, I prefer the vyper (actually impressed me for 99$) but if you want to play "as quietly as possible" I'd say go the guitarport/headphone route.

If looking for best price/value ratio, i'd say a Kustom dart 10.
If for pure quality small bedroom amp, how about a cornford harlequin Or more affordable, Blackheart Killer Ant hear+decent 2x12?
#35
Peavey vypyr 30w is great, has a lot of effects and is extremely versatile.
#36
If you have a pocket pod just get something with a very sterile sounding clean channel and use the pod for tone. Variety is nice for practice.

I'm using a Spider III 15W. It's decent, but I'm not a snob who needs the most high endest of ****. ****.
