Valvetronix > Spider. There's no other way about it.

But what kind of music do you play, and how much do you have available to spend on an amp?

If thats your only 2 choices then Valvetronix no contest. Answer Denthul's questions for some better options in your budget.

i play alot. mostly classic rock though and some fall out boy type stuff
i have about $200 to spend

Eh...For that much, all I can say is either get the Valvetronix, or maybe an Epiphone Valve Jr. and a pedal. But I don't think the latter would be versatile enough for you (I mean, it's fairly versatile, especially if you learn to use the volume and tone controls on your guitar, but that takes practice and the range of sounds isn't as great as the Vox) so the Vox might be better. Would you be willing to save more?

1. Get the Vox 2. Fall Out Boy Sucks

Music can't really be judged, since it's all on the same level. Unless it's screamo. then it sucks.

Sorry to be negative, but Line 6 Spiders suck in my experiences. Zero warmth or character.

The Vox'll be a good amp that you can still use as a practice amp if/when you get a bigger gigging amp. There are some good and useable sounds on it, so that'll keep you occupied!

Save some more and try to get a Vox Valvetronix AD 60VT or even better a AD 120VT. Those are really good sounding and versatile amps. And both are good for bedroom practice and for gigging
#16

When I saw the title of this thread I nearly shat myself.

Get a vox. Whenever someone buys a Spider, a kitten is brutally raped and murdered. Consider the kitten!

you mainly play classic rock? get a Vox.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I got myself a vox valvetronix 30 amp about 3 months ago. and that little thing is the sh*t. you can get any sound you want out of it with a little tweeking. and its pretty friggin loud, my neibors have called the cops twice on me. the only thing i hate is it only has two personal presets, so you end up writing alot of different tones down. but all the effects are fun to play with. and you can tweek the factory presets but you cant save them. and if you go to guitar center talk to one of the sales people, they set the price point, i jewed them down 20 bucks and got the thing for $170.
