So, a friend of mine (girl) wants to learn how to play guitar, since I'm the only person she nows tha plays guitar, she asked me what amp should her buy.

Apparently she's buying an Epiphone Les Paul Studio.

She likes mostly Alternative, Pop Punk and Rock.

Keep it cheap, she's willing to spend 175$ and can maybe stretch it to 200$.

I was thinking in some kind of Roland Cube or maybe a Vox ADVT.

Epi Valve Jr.

Or if she must go SS, Vypyr would work.

I don't think Vypyr's can do any of those genres as well as another amp, I'm sure they're amied for Metal.

She's going SS btw.

Vox Valvetronix. The Cube and Vypyr are more for metal, where as the Vox is a better alternative/punk amp IMO.

Vox VT. I own one (well not a VT, an older model :P) and it nails anything in the spectrum from The Beatles to the Foo Fighters and Metallica and everything in between. Don't expect it to play any Heayy metal, but seeing as she won't, I would get one of these.

The Vox. A Peavey Rage might be worth a go as well.

Don't judge me.

The newer Vox VT series. It is perfect for what you need, and sounds great as a practice amp.
The ADVT isn't bad, but if the budget allows, definitely go for the VT.

The Vypyr isn't bad, it's just it's better for high gain, mid-gain applications, where as the VT is more of what your friend wants to play...

Fender Super Champ?
