I'm getting an electric guitar for Christmas, and am wanting to buy a practice amp, but I would like for it to still be pretty loud, because sometimes I play at church. I prefer clean and blues sounds, not as much into the metalcore etc. Have 100$, the cheaper though the better.

What does troll mean? And I bought the amp off of gc.com shortly after putting this up, was just looking for some last second advice...

I mean, I guess I feel like if you were looking for advice you would have asked "what about the Frontman?" and we (most of us) would have been like "no."

being a troll means you post something just to get a rise out of people. that amp isn't great, and definitely doesn't live up to the badge it wears (like most budget series amps). did you at least play one first?

Oh, well, I posted on here, then read some good reviews and had some good comments about it from another site I use, that it was a good amp for blues and clean sounds which is what I prefer, and that it was pretty loud. So when I got back to this site, I had already ordered it and was just updating so this thread could die.

Try either the Roland Cube 15 or the Crate FlexWave15R 15W Combo, or the Kustom 16 gauge - all $99.

The Crate and Kustom have a 12 inch speaker. Much better than the Cube with only an 8 inch. And the Crate and Kustom have reverb (kind of like echo, very nice to have) and the Cube doesn't) But the Cube 15 has some really nice tones.

So any would be good. I'd recommend the Crate or Kustom for church.

If you prefer a clean tone, I'd avoid the Roland Cube.

A used Vox AD30VT should be perfect. You may be pushed to find one in the US at that price, but they do come along every now and then (you might have to stretch your budget to $150 though).

The tones are really crunchy and organic for a cheap non-valve, solid state amp. It's perfect for Ozzy and The Beatles.
