I'm fairly new to guitars and at the moment have a Vintage v100 LP,im looking at buying a small 10/15w amp for the spare bedroom but dont really want to spend more than £150, i'd like one that would suit the style of music i listen to which is , Paul Weller, The Who, OCS, oasis, motorhead, Ska and punk...any suggestions???

Cube. Most musical of the ultra-cheap amps.

Yeap, Cube would my choice as well. Cheap, easy to use, versatile and it actually sounds pretty good.

I prefer the Vox Valvetronix series to the Cubes, the newer VT+ was awesome, Id look into those.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

Cubes and Vox are always at the top of my list, but there are a lot of versatile "modeling" amps out there like Peavey & Line6 that make great practie amp.

Also TS, see if you can find a used Line 6 Flextone. Super awesome amp.

As others already said, Fender Mustang, Vox Valvetronix and Roland Cube are all solid amps.

Another good option would be the Peavey Vypyr.

Yep, the Flextone amps were great.

Just stay away from the Line 6 Spider amps. They sound awful.

All of the Cubes sound pretty good. No experience with a baby Blackstar.

i haven't tried the blackstar.

i'd have said the vox valvetronix was better for the tones you want than the cube, but i haven't tried the most recent generation of modellers, and there may well have been something which has superseded it.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Another vote for the box valvetronix. Love mine. My son (12) has pinched it though!
