Okay so I'm looking for a new amp. Right now I have a 15w behringer gm108 and I'm looking for something bigger for practice with a band, recording, and small gigs. I want something that can play Classic Rock to Metal to Punk to Metalcore to Hardcore/Screamo and Pop Punk. I've narrowed it down to a few so far. I'm open to suggestions and all.

Vox AD30VT
Roland 30w Cube
Crate FXT30
Line 6 Spider II 112 Combo

i dont know too much about guitar amps sound wise (i mainly play bass) but volume wise a 30 watt isnt going to cut it with a band, u could do it with the line 6. my friend has one and i think they sound good especially for the money . 199.99 for the 112 but yea. hope this helped

Look I would go for either the Vox or the Line 6 because the ex-guitar player in my band had a Roland 30w Cube and I play it with my GOOD Schecter Omen 6 and it sounded like CRAP, pure stinking CRAP. It sucks. And as for the Crate one, it doesn't inspire me very much but you could check that one out at the store. The only one you should really STAY AWAY from is the Roland 30w Crap.

Sorry for the double post but I also forgot to mention that 30w won't cut it easily with a band unless you really crank it therefore I would go with the Line 6.

I just played the Peavey Triple XXX half stack today and my god does it rip it up, I dont know what your limit is but the 120 watts of power will easily please a large crowd, It has 3 channesl and The clean is way better then any amp ive ever heard> the Crunch and Ultra channels will carry you away with its power and gain.
MY gear:
Ibanez Jetking II
Ibanez Acustic
Kustom lead III 2x12
Big muff Pi
Dunlop Original Crybaby

u might wanna check out the Carvin Legacy VL212 combo. its 100W will be great with a band. it also has a "cabinet voiced output" for direct plugging to a console. true it is a $1000 amp but its a worthwhile investment.

EDIT: You can listen to a demo here: http://www.carvin.com/vai/vaidemo.mp3
