A mate of mine is looking to buy a new amp in the near future, hes a much more experienced guitarist than me but lacks the know-how when it comes to gear etc.

Things you need to know - his budget is around £200, he isnt keen on going used (though ive tried to explain that he'll get a better deal this way), he mainly plays blues/classic rock but branches out alot, the amp will be used for bedroom practice only, and his current guitars are an Epiphone LP Standard and an Epiphone Dot Studio.

Just hit me with a few suggestions and ill get back to him...


Cheers

Hmm.. some things you have to consider when going used... There could be outdated tubes (if its a tube amp) or anything wrong without your friend knowing and if anything like that happens, he'll most likely blame you. Even though it costs more, i suggest going new. A Peavey Vypyr or Vox should suit him well

I have recently decided that I am going to reccommend the Vox Valvetronix instead of the Peavey Vypyr for situations like this.

So, Vox VT.

Fender Frontman 65R. For the price ($199.99 U.S.), it has a single button footswitch and is rated at a very LOUD 65 watts. It's perfect for Blues and Classic Rock. It's what I use and IMO, it's a very underrated amp.

i would have to agree with this, if your friend can wait the new valvetronix + should be out soon and that looks to have more features for a similar price
