So I play the guitar but my amp sucks. I played on my friends Line 6 Spider III amp with some cool distortion pedal and everything I play sounded pretty amazing. Then I came home and played the same stuff on mine, sounded like shit. I'm pretty sure it's just the distortion because when I tap Eruption by Van Halen it doesn't sound out right. I was wondering if I should save up my money and get a bigger, better amp, or just get a distortion pedal? I remember using a Fender Starcaster Distortion Pedal for only 20-30 dollars, but I don't remember if it was great. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Don't get a spider III, you can get a lot better amp for the money. Look at the Peavey Vypyr for example. $100, has everything you would need for practice. I picked one up since I can't really play my 5150 low enough to deal with complaints from others (I live in an apartment). Sounds great. Much better than any other practice amp I've played.

Yea what amp, If it is a spider, then get a better amp.
