Hey, I'm going to college soonish and i am wondering if i could take my electric guitar and amp etc with me. I have a Line 6 Bogner Spider Valve 112 40W Tube Amp and i am wondering if this amp is too big/loud to bring to college with me. I also have a Schecter C-1 Classic. Also, is college safe enough to bring a guitar and amp i care about without big fear of it being stolen?

they dont usually care how big it is.... they care how loud you play it. dont be stupid and blair the mother ****er but i highly doubt they will just outright tell you to get rid of it. do it. oh and i wouldnt worry tooo much about stolen guitar/amp... that kind of stuff sticks out really bad if its kept by who stole it.... but keep your door locked when you aren't in it.

I'd trade that Spyder for an MG100. Don't worry if anybody is telling you to stop playing. They are just heckling you.

Also feel free to leave your door unlocked and open when you go out. Nobody will take anything.

my stuff was completely safe

but then again, nobody was taking the amp, it is hard to steal 75 lbs and not be noticed

Do you have a roommate?

If so, chances are you're gonna get your guitar stolen.

um.... no..... going to have to disagree with you. depends on the roomate... get to know him and figure out if he is shady.... shouldn't be hard to figure out. i had my guitar/amp in my room for 2 years now.... no problems

As long as you can trust your roomate, who has a key, why not. I'd recomend locking your guitar in its case to a desk (like a laptop) or something when your not there though.

Edit: Use headphones maybe?

I took my guitar and amp and was never worried about it getting stolen in the dorms. I had a roommate and between the two of us there was someone in the room for a good amount of most days, and if neither of us were there, the door was locked.
Really it depends on your situation though, can't really say because i don't know where you're going. But from my experience its safe.
If you are staying in a dorm, just be aware of the noise level and that you have a lot of neighbors in close quarters who probably will not want to hear you play most of the time. So just keep it down, you should be ok

Oops

I meant only if your roommate is a turd, then yes

I have a 60 watt tube amp this year and it works out fine. Granted I am in a frat house now, but last year I was in a dorm and it would have been fine. If your roommate is cool and you guys lock your door it won't get stolen. If the spider has a master volume you'll be fine for sure... IDK if it does or not.

I can't crank it but it still sounds pretty good at the volumes it has to be at.

I'm going to college next year and I'm living in their apartments and was wondering the same thing. I have a spider IV 150 so i think thatd be hard to steal without making noise.
