I have a fender squire showmaster and a roland micro cube. The Roland is really small and i am looking at getting a better quality amp that can give a better sound. I was looking in my local guitar shops and one has a Peavey bandit 112 amp on sale for $399. It is a solid state transtube. Does anyone know if these are any good or if i can get a better amp for the price. I am looking at spending around $500. I am new at guitar and haven't played many amps.

what genres do you play? micro cube is WAY better than a transtube. i wouldn't mind having a micro cube.

500? Go for a Fender Hot Rod or Blues Deluxe, or maybe a Deluxe Reverb for 600
Yeah Dimebag is not the "Greatest Guitarist" of all time... Hendrix maybe... I must go get food to eat with my mouth

$250 for an amp? wow. is it worth it to invest that much in the amp?

if he was playing blues/classic rock type stuff i'd go witha peavey classic 30 before one of the 2 channel hot rods. cleans are almost even, but the drive on the peavey pwns that off the fender.

id stay away from the Bandit 112, sounds thin at low gain and muddy/noisy at high gain, u can do a lot better with your $500

What i play most of is rock and some metal. My Roland is the smallest one you can get and it sound ok but i had a friend bring over a 100W amp and even thought it wasn't cranked up it sounded a lot better than mine.

If you play mostly rock, the Classic 30 would suit you if you could get it within your price range. Then a Boss SD-1 would be able to boost you into metal territory. If you can't get a Classic 30, a Valve King might work for you.

you might like a laney Lc amp, i own the lc15r, its awesome but not too loud, therefore i recomend the lc30, having a bigger speaker i supose it should have more preccence and stuff. the Lc range is the best amps i have ever played, and then the peaveys transtube series.

lc might need a pedal, i use a mt-2 it works fine, i like it more than the sd-1 since the amp is laks some brutal distortion, and the mt-2 gives it an interesting sound, somewaht heavy and hard.
