I was wondering what is the best practice amp in the 100-150 dollar range in canadian dollars. I play mostly hard rock and 80's metal and needed something to replace my Peavey RAge 158 until Christmas (Vox Valvetronix ) Any suggestions?

the vox valvatronix would really be the way to go... but if you can deal with it... maybe the five watt version
its right in your price range and should be good till you get the bigger version

The roland mini cube is $125 USD now. I'm not sure how much that is in Canadian.

I suggest you get a used practice amp with that price which will get you a better one. Since amps do last for a long time (well, as long you dont abuse them) and eventually you would switch to a better amp so used one w/o any problem should do the job.

If you already have a practice amp, what's the point in getting a new one?

Save up for a real amp.

The one I have now broke down. I got it used off one of my cousins and all it does is buzz.

Have you tried plugging other guitars into it?

It might be easily fixable.

Ya, i've tried other guitars in the amp, I got it for 50 bucks and it was pretty banged up so I guess it's time ran out.

Take it into a guitar shop that you trust and see if they can fix it. No sense in buying a new amp for $100-$150 if you can get yours fixed for next to nothing. It could be something really simple that's easy to repair. It may only cost you $10 to get fixed. Have it looked at and find out before buying a new amp.

Its really hard to find a store that would repair anything for 10 bucks in Toronto. Last time i broke my friend's guitar jack and Ring music store wanted 40 bucks for labour and 28 bucks for a so called "quality" jack and the wait time was 2 weeks. Then i found a guy repair it for like 15 bucks (the new jack only costed like 50 cents or something) within 2 hrs.

Like I said, find a store you trust. Honest people who do good work and know what they're doing.

There are 4 music stores near me, and I absolutely refuse to shop at three of them. The people are ass holes or snakes, or will say anything to get a sale.

However, the one store I do shop at is great. Just a small, locally owned place. The owner knows a lot about guitars, amps and is a really nice guy. You need to find a place like this near you. Check out different stores around your area and I'm sure you'll find a good one.

As for the price, the store I go to usually fixes stuff for free if it's just a small problem. If you find a good store I'm sure they will too.

Have you been to all of them in your area? Even the small local-owned ones? I find that they're the best.

Yeah, they do. I have near me and the owner there is really kickass, too bad they don't have a large selection of amps though . Lots of axes though, especially used ones.
