so that's basically what i need, something to practice with at home, possibly with a friend sometimes, but it's not very likely i'll have to use it in a band...
the stuff i play is mostly classic hard rock (think AC/DC or GN'R) but i'd also like a decent clean channel.
i was looking at the roland cube 15 (haven't tried it yet) and that's what my budget is roughly. i could also get a bit bigger amp used for that money (something like 30w) so i was wondering how big the difference between 15w and 30w really is...
any advices? don't say microcube because of the effects, i don't really mind the lack of those on cube 15...
thanks.

whatever you do, dont get any kind of marshall under 50 watts OR with mgdfx written on it. you will be sorely disappointed. i didn't really enjoy any of the cubes either, to tell you the truth

i guess you mean the ad15vt one... would it be ok for heavier stuff? the problem is that i'd probably have to order it (i didn't see any here), so i can't really try it out before buying...

yea, i heard that about marshalls, so i'm not looking at those, but i heard that cubes are pretty decent (especially for the price).

Yes it has a Dual Rec. setting. Not the best, but for literally everything else it owns. The best cleans undoubtedly, fantastic classic rock and blues, quite good metal....

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

ok, i'll see if i can get it... what about cube 15? i'd be easier for me to find it, cheaper, and i could try it before buying...
