I've been using a Roland Micro Cube for three years now (Yes, as my primary amp. You may not ridicule me for that decision, I was a beginner).

I wish to upgrade. I want a good Amp + Multi Effects Pedalboard, within 200-250 dollars. Any good suggestions?

(A good amp with built in COSM modelling is also quite feasible)

Fire away the suggestions!

Have you looked at the Vyper yet or a Valveking?


Gonna look them up now. Thanks for the suggestion. Anymore good modelling amp or combo?

VOX Valvetronix or Fender Mustang. I had a VOX VT20+ and was pretty impressed by the modeling.

If you get a modeling amp (vox vt gets my vote) you wont need a multifx. Or if you want a multifx, you may be able to find a cheap lil tube amp to pair with it.

That's exactly what I planned to do. The Modelling amp was just an alternative..

What multi fx pedals do you recommend?

On the cheap side the Zoom G3 is great. If you go used you could probably squeeze in a powered floor wedge or maybe a small tube amp.


You probably need a lil more money for a "good amp"

Are there any particular qualities I should be looking for in a Stage Wedge? Or just buy whatever I find? I remember seeing a few at my local store.. After I get the pedal, I'd just try it out on them all and see which sounds best.

In my opinion getting a modelling amp or multi fx is not much of an upgrade. I had a Boss GT-8 once and hated it as it was a pain to use. If you're a bedroom player I'd look at a cheap valve amp like the Orange Micro terror (even though its hybrid) with the micro cab and some joyo pedals but if you play metal then I'd probably save up for a bugera or something

You're limited by your budget but you don't need much.

Its an interesting option, a powered wedge will work well with amp models but still be useful after you upgrade your amp.

I plan to play live, so I'm going to do the Pedal+ Simple amp as it will serve me better. But having not yet made a decision, I'll definitely look into your suggestions..
