I'm looking to pick up a fairly good practice amp for my birthday, but I'd like to keep my price under $100. I'd say the best thing to do would be go to a pawn shop, obviously, but if I was going to buy a new amp, what should I get? I like to play a little bit of everything (except for death and nu-metal). I play a bit of country, a lot of rock and hard rock, some classic metal, and I've been thinking of learning a little blues, so I guess I'd probably just need the best all-around amp I can get for $100 or less... any suggestions?

If you can get a Vox AD15VT, or DA5, they're good. Or one of the 10 Watt Kustom amps.

I'd go for a Roland Microcube or a Vox DA5, both are bit over $100 but are well worth it. I'd be leaning toward the DA5 myself
#5
I just searched around on MF, and I was wondering if the Peavey Rage 158 was any good...? just out of curiousity

Toneport if you have a computer. Very versatile. But if you need an actual amplifier, I'd say Roland Microcube.


EDIT: /\ no. And why do you want another practice amp? I just read your sig and you already have a practice amp. I don't see the point in buying a "better" practice amp, if it's just for practice. You should save up your cash and buy a 30 watt tube combo once you start gigging or play with other people.

I don't plan to be playing any time soon with anyone else... and most of the people I do play with are on acoustic guitars so I don't need anything too loud. I hate the sound quality of the amp I currently have, so I'd like to get a better sounding one.

in addition to the above, look into the Roland Cube series of amps.


As long as it's a Microcube and not a 15x or 20x (those 2 suck ).

^I'd let a pro look at it. Once you get into the technicalities of screws...well, it's just a place you don't want to be, friend.

That's cool, if that's what you want. It's your money. I think a good practice amp (by "good' I mean decent quality, tone, and very versatile) is either the microcube or a valvetronix. The Vox DA 5 is decent as well

Ok, I might be able to get a Micro Cube if I can throw in the extra $25 myself... now, I've been thinking. I want to get myself an Ibanez Jet King 2... it's got a good price, coil splitting-capability, and from what I read from reviews, they're pretty darn good. I've got some cash myself, but I've really been toying with the idea of selling my current guitar and amp... I bought them both together for 250 bucks, and I think I could make it seem like it's worth a lot more if I advertise it in the classifieds for 120 dollars and mention I bought them for $250. My SG has a couple of scratches on it (a white one next to the strap nut on the back from a fall and a spot in the paint that chipped off on the headstock when I bumped it into a wall) but neither are visible when you're running around so I thought I might be able to sell it off as a "beginner guitar" to someone who's looking for a cheap setup... Should I sell my guitar and amp to make some extra money then get a Micro Cube and a Jet King?

If you find a Jet King that feels and sounds better than your SG, then go for it.

I like Peavey Transtubes the best of all solid states. More tubey than any other, indestructible and nice price.

You might consider a 5W tube amp, like the Epi Valve Junior.

Oh and just to clarify, when I was talking earlier about the Peavey Rage I meant the TransTube one, but does that make a lot of difference on whether I should get it or not?
