you are going to get a bunch of people telling you not to get the spider, and i don't htink you should.
save up for a tube amp

Choosing one of those amps would be like choosing what cancer you want.
What style of music do you play?
And why does the last link go to a vibro king?
Unless you meant to put that down as an option, get that.

Take that $300 and spend it on a good used tube combo. All those amps are really really really bad.

get the FM212, the thing is though, it doesn't have any effects, but its a great amp.

*sigh* yet again, only on UG would somebody rush to their computer to tell the pit when their lives or property are in dire trouble.

Are you gigging?

50+watts is a little much for bedroom practicing, and not quite enough for gigging unless you mic it/direct out to a PA. It's a good amount of watts for a band practice though.

Spider III's are one of the better beginner amps for metal, not so much for clean. The Roland Cube is the best all around beginner amp. VOX Valvetronix are ok, ok distortion, ok clean, ok OD; nothing better than OK for any of those though.

There's alot of great peavey amps that you can find used.
If you play modern rock/metal, get a valveking, if you play classic stuff, get a classic.
Don't go digital unless you get one of the really good ones (vettas).
