I have a Schecter Demon-7 SBK and I'd like an amp for playing deathcore and metalcore.
I've read reviews about the Spider IV 30W and some say it's good, some say it isn't.
So, I'm in doubt between the Roland Cube-20GX and the Line 6 Spider IV-30W.
Which one should I buy?

stay far away from line 6 spiders. pure shit. roland or a peavey vypyr pick your size, the 60s have a tube poweramp which is a nice little bonus.

IMO i would recommend a peavey vypyr tube 60 they go for $300or less in the US.

if you don't want a modeling amp, just pick up a 6505+ 1x12' combo ($600 new, $350 used or so. or you could go with a mesa single rec combo better yet a rectoverb combo

NO SPIDER.

Definitly better than the spider, though i would say go for the VIP 2, the 12" speaker helps a lot.

And whats your budget exactly? Because if you can swing 250$ a used Vypyr tube 60 seems pretty much perfect for you.

I wanted to spend about 250€ max, I'll have to buy the amp from Thomann because I have a 150€ discount because of a warranty activation and they gave me that discount.
Could you please take a look at the website and see if there's anything better than the VIP 1 for deathcore/metalcore on a 7 string?

Too expensive


They did have a B-stock for €259 if you can swing the extra money, if not that is fine.
