I'm looking for a small(ish) bedroom practice amp, currently playing stuff by The Smiths, Stone Roses, Oasis, Arctic Monkeys, etc. Does anyone have any good recommendations for £100-£150? My main guitar is a semi-hollow Epiphone Riviera Custom P93, and I also use a Fender Strat and a Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro, if it helps.

It seems to be a bit of a minefield, and I'm currently considering these:
- Roland Cube (unsure about these as I've never used them)
- Orange Crush 12 Solid State (as above)
- Line 6 Spider (generally rubbished so will probably avoid)
- Fender Mustang (would be great but I wonder if it's too clean for Oasis-sort songs? Having said that, would theoretically be great for The Smiths)
- Marshall MG15CFX (probably my preferred right now)

I'd rather make an educated decision so if anyone has any advice that would be great. It's only for practice, not for gigging.

Thanks

Out of those, the Mustang. Try to find one with a 12'' speaker. If you are comfortable, buy it used- you will get more amp for the $. Stay away from the Marshall MG and the Spider, they are notoriously bad. Crush and Cube are okay but the Mustang has more of the modeling feature set that you will need.

the vox valvetronixes are likely worth a look too for those type of tones
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
