So everyone here is obsessed with tube amps, but noone ever says anything good about solid state. There are a lot of good solid state amps out there, what are the favorites here on UG. My personal favorite is the Roland Blues Cube 60. It's got a Fender-y sounding clean channel, and a Marshall JCM 800 sounding lead channel, and they both sound amazing. My other favorite is the Roland Jazz Chorus.

Hughes and Kettner Edition Blue 30.

the only SS amp that i actually sort of like.


YAY!! Go Edition Blue 30. It was my second amp and I still have it. It is pretty good beginner solid state amp. I like the cube 60 better though.

Concerning the Roland Cube 60.... If I were to plug it into a cabinet would it make it louder?

My first and only amp is a Fender Princeton 650... and it kinda grew on me. It's actually better than I used to think it was.

I also like some Peaveys. Like the Audition 110.


But tubes sound SO much better.

^ Princetons are alright, especially for the price.

I love the cleans on a JC120. And some of the Felxtones are pretty good too.

i enjoy playing with my old peavey bandit 112 combo... its clean is good but the distortion is ... i dont go anywhere near that crap distortion, because it just makes my ears bleed everytime i hear it! but if i put a dist. pedal through it, (which i hate using OD pedals) it sounds ok for a bedroom amp...

^ Yea, the Crush have good cleans. The overdrive is pretty brash though. Atleast ont he smaller ones.

Flextones are my favourite SS amps.
