So... My G-Dec junior amp broke on me while I was playing.... and now i need a new amp...
I want something that has a good "metal" setting on it and want to avoid pedals, etc... so i was thinking about the Line 6 spider 3 15 watt amp, i just need something i can jam on in my room/with friends, etc.

Is the Line 6 spider 3 any good? Im looking for a good practice amp for less than 200 bucks, any suggestions please, I need a new amp ASAP.

OR AM I BETTER OFF BUYING ANOTHER G-DEC Junior AMP???

I've played on my friend's Roland Cube 30 and I thought it was a great amp for the price it is (I think it's like $250 new).
my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps

What's not to like about the spider?
Its sexy
Its cheap
It has lots of cool shiny knobs
It has tons of effects


O and then there's the thin, lifeless tone.
I leik music

They are a great amp IMO. They have sweet settings. If youre looking for a multi-fx processing unit and an amp in one... This is your greatest bet.

Woah an 2003er! You are becoming a rare breed sir.






In all seriousness though, another amp you would like is the Hughes & Kettner Edition Blue amps. They are really incredible little buggers for being solid state, and sound better ( to my ears ) than anything else you can get your hands on for under $200 that isn't tube. They aren't made anymore, but you can find them used on eBay for under $200 no problem. With a high output humbucker they can do metal, and they have a very, very dark tone which is well suited for the genre.

There's actually a nice 1x12 Edition Blue 60 on there for $150 right now. It's still got 3 days left, but trust me, NOBODY knows these amps exist, so I'm sure you could get it for under $200 no problem. There is also the 15 watt version on there, which is considerably smaller, and you could snag that with Buy It Now for $150.


Check 'em out my friend.

This man speaks the truth. I would rather have a H&K with a Metal Muff for metal rather than any modeler.

If you're averse to distortion pedals, look at a Cube.
