why does your gender make a difference o_0 ? seems decent, but you might be able to get something better, budget? location? bands' sounds your looking for? willing to go used? play with a band? gig?

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

A Peavey Vypyr? According to UG, they're great. You might wanna check out the 30 watt. But that's a solid state, which will be USUALLY no where near as good as a tube. Do you have a budget? What bands do you like?

Because I'm only 5 foot tall and 100ibs and no bf to carry heavy/bulky amps up 3 flights of stairs for me

maybe 30 watts would be better but i don't really like the vypyr

check out the B-52 AT112. very tight, heavy sound, if it fits in your budget.

I support the CUbe 30 recommendation as well as throw in my own recommendations of a Vox AD30 and a Fender Super Champ.

I like the sounds that I hear (online) from the Cube. I like the 80 because of the added features + 80-watts should be sufficient if/when I join a band.
#12
Why would you want to practise in a band with a solidstate?

If you're looking for an amp to last you in a band get a tube amp.

They cut through SO MUCH BETTER.

B-52 AT112, get it.

NEVER, I repeat, NEVER buy a Solid State over 30 watts, they're a waste of money.

really?
my 500 watt solid state is one of the clearest amps i've ever played and i play gigs and do band practice with it no sweat, haven't had to turn it past like 5 to compete with a peavey 5150/dual rec.

the best tones i've heard ever were from a Vetta II, a solid state. and mine, but that's all subjective.

I think high watt SS amps in general are a waste. I'd rather have my 22 watt Deluxe than an 100 Watt SS.

Yeah, compare a 500 watt expensive solid state that is of quality to a roland cube 30

You listen to surf and blues, this is typical genres where tube saturation and dynamics are almost required to sound great.

Metal is different.

It may be loud, but SS amps just don't have the warmth of a tube amp. Say I'm wrong, but 90% of this site feels that way.

Have you ever listened to Surf? 90% of it is clean or slightly pushed tube amps. Surf and Metal are my favorite genres, but my Deluxe can handle small and medium gigs clean, so I can use pedals for metal. Though not voiced for Metal. The Dual Showman (100 tube watts) makes a great amp for Surf and Metal.

Blues = Tube Saturation, dynamics.

Surf = slight saturation + mainly tube dynamics.

So your saying a Roland JC-120 sucks??


I just find them to be overkill, usually, you can get a nice tube amp for the price.

I chose a solid state over tube. I'm not an idiot, I'm just not much of a fan of the "warmth" you get from tubes.

But let's try to keep this on topic.

Roland cubes are good amps, but I've said it a couple of times before and I'll say it again... Vox ADs

But for the same price of the Cube 80x (At least over here anyway) A Randall RX 75R is pretty damn sweet.

YOU NEED TO ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS FIRST!

what is your budget?

what do you want to use the amp for?
