Check out the roland cubes. i'm in the process of upgrading from the Micro-cube at the moment myself, but it's been a great little amp.

the r-fier setting is tons of fun.

rock/some metal not much and alternative
and it will be used for small gigs and band rehersal

At that price, you're looking at a Roland MicroCube. They're not bad amps for the price. I don't personally own one, but I've played my Custom Shop Tele through one and it sounded great.

the cube and the vypyr are ok, but idk how good they would be for what you want. you really dont have enough money to get something quality.

well as long as they wont get overpowered by drums and the rest of the instruments and that theyll last me for a year or so im good
#18
they will get overpowered. save up more and get a cube 60x. 300usd
or get a peavey VK combo used
either way you need more money

god dam just pick one of the ones i posted

I have to agree. For $200, you're just not going to get that much in a new amp. Especially if you want to play in a band. You need something that's going to get you above the drums and the bass. A MicroCube is great for practicing at home, but it won't cut it in that setting. Behringer has poor quality control and their stuff breaks down. If you can save another hundred, or so, look at used amps. You should be able to get a Peavey Valveking, or similar used at GC for around $300.
#21
they wont get overpowered if you drummer plays lightly.......

Line 6 Spider 2 30 watts!
Wouldn't it be great if pigs could fly?
#25
I think your going to have to save up at least $300 if you want something for band jamming. Then you could get either:

Peavey Vypr 75w
Used Peavey Valveking
or maybe a crate v with a boost or something
Gear:
Fender Highway One HSS Strat
Art & Lutherie Cedar Acoustic
Line6 UX2
No amp ... Help me find an amp

finally ty all for ur time and help so ima buy the Yamaha Electric Guitar Amp, model G50-112II for 100$ and if you want that for just 100 bux go to petesmusic.com if you live like me in anaheim or in orange county
#36
^ you WILL regret the yamaha amp...... yamaha doesn't produce good amps, and even if its $100 it still SUCKS....

these are your possible choices
SAVE and buy a Vypyr 75
or
Save some more and buy a 6505+/5150 II
