And the ones I'm looking at are the Line 6 Spider III and the Peavey Vypyr at the price of 89.99 and 99.99 respectively.

Which should I buy? Do any of these amps come with a cable that connects to the guitar?

Thanks in advance.

amps dont usually come with a cable to connect to your guitar. Unless there's some cool dudes working at your local guitar shop and you buy an expensive amp or something then they might throw one in for ya.

Everyone will tell you to get the Vypyr. I owned a spider II a few years ago and absolutely hated it 2 weeks later. Spider III's are generally seen as WORSE than the II's so that should tell you something.

The vypyr generally gets pretty good reviews around here considering the price, features, and tone it has.

Okay I'm getting a Peavey now. Why? Because I remember every day when I was 5 years old (now i'm 17) I walked into every pawn shop and I always saw Peavey everywhere. I was like "What the **** does it say"

Peavey and Crate were the main brand names in pawnshops around my house.

Oh I almost forgot, I have a cheap guitar (probably a 100 dollar guitar). If I buy this cable

Will it sound good with the new amp I buy (Yes the Vypyr, just because they use the "Ys" like the Byrds and Lynyrd Skynyrd)??

Thanks again.

most peaveys and crates you see in pawnshops are those crappy practice amps. rarely do you see a good amp in a pawn shop.


about the cables, i use those particular cables. very durable. but the cables have nothing to do with tone.

well what i meant was it doesn affect your tone TOO much like an amp would, or pickups etc..

sure cheap crappy chords will be microphonic and crap out on you within a few days but what i'm saying is i think it's virtually impossible to hear the difference between the many decent quality $20-$40 chords. unless you're Eric Johnson of course

that and you get exactly the same effect by adjusting the eq.

I wouldn't get either of those amps. The Line 6 is well, you know... And, the Vypyr sucks ass too. If you want a decent modeller look into a Vox VT15 or a used Line 6 Flextone.
#17
I only have 100 bucks for amp.

And I have a crappy guitar. Will it sound okay? My friend has a Fender GDEC and it sounds okay.
#19
now I don't want you to be all "Hey buy a roland cube because I have one"

I want you to tell me which is better quality and performance wise the Cube or the Vypyr?
#20
Most people don't have a Vypyr, a Cube, a Spider, and a Valvetronic. Some may have tried them in the store but that usually isn't enough to really get the feel of the amp.

I have a Vypyr 15. The cleans are very nice and punchy, and the metal tones get good reviews, but the classic rock crunch is grainy. The wide variety of amp models and FX, plus separate control over reverb and delay from FX make it a good buy for the money. I have no reservations recommending it for a practice amp.

That's a damn fine question. The Roland Cube is a better amp. That is certainly not to say you will be disappointed with the Vypyr, though.
Peavey essentially noticed the huge demand for Spider/Cube-like amps and brought out their own variation, which happened to be quite decent. It took them quite a while to perfect it, but it's pretty much top of the line now for practise amps with a strict budget. It doesn't have the fizzy high-gain of the Spider III's and the Marshall MG's and it feels relatively natural when played clean. The on-board effects are not as good as a Spider II or a Vox AD/VT, but they are very passable.
The Vox is most suited for Classic rock to heavy rock, while the Cube is more apt for metal as it's tones are a little more compressed and a little less muddy.

Indeed. Most people just say those amps because everyone else does, yet they have never really tried them.

I have never owned a Vypyr, but I owned a Roland Cube 30, a Vox AD30VT and a Spider II before, and they were all good amps. You can pick up a Vox AD15VT second-hand now for £100:

Bam! I agree. The newer Vox VT series are great modeller amps.

TS, you can always try the used market. Or you should always try the used market. You can get a decent sized ADVT series amp for $100 although I recommend the newer ones.
