Hi

I have a little question about the amplifier above.

I now have a Line 6 Spider 30 Combo. But I bought it when I was too young to decide what way I would go with my guitar.
Now, I'd rather have a tube amp.

Why?
=> I mainly play Jazz and Blues, and only use overdrive, and no distortion at all.

Why a Fender?
=> I'm thinking about buying a Fender (American) Stratocaster. Not for this year, not for next year but maybe in a couple of years. One thing is certain. I will buy it.
I think that a Fender Amp would give the best sound with a Strat so there is the reason for buying a Fender.

Now I can buy this amp for €323 (new).

What do you suggest?
Buy it?
Buy another Fender?
Buy another tube amp?
Buy an amp with tube simulator?
Stick with your Line 6?
Buy a non-tube amp?

Look at my nickname too, but know I also like Pat Metheny and things like that.

If you have experience with a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Enclosure 112, please post it


Thank you

If it is just the enclosure, that usually means it is just a cab (speaker, no actual amp). So to try and help you find the right map for you, what is your overall budget, where in (I am assuming) Europe are you, and are you gigging/jamming or are you a bedroom guitarist?
Gibson Les Paul Studio
Highway One Telecaster
Dean Evo
Mesa F-50
Laney GH50L
Vox AC30 C2
Ampeg V2

I live in Belgium. And i'm both guitarists. I have no band but I do some giggs from time to time.
Budget, lets say 500€

A Fender Blues Jr. would be great, and so would a Peavey Delta Blues, depending on the type of tone you want, American or British voicing. Peavey Classic and and Epiphone Blues Custom would be great as well. Would you be ordering off the internet (Thomman I'm guessing) or do you have local shops available?

I have a store nearby called KeyMusic (http://www.keymusic.be/default.asp?co=ic)

thanks for your help already.

Your suggesting a Peavey and an Epiphone. For the moment I play on an Epiphone (TS Casino), so i guess the Epiphone would already sound nice wiht that but does it exctually matters much if you match up an amp and a guitar from the same brand?
