i was just thinking of how cool it would be to have a nice guitar to play on my tube amp that will soon be up and running with new tubes! and then i realized something.....next year at college i rly dont want my tube amp with me cause its like 50 years old...literally...and i love my spider...yes i actually rly like the thing...but thats besides the point, but that thing ways like 75 pounds and its a fregin 150watt...

im left with my 15watt starter amp, its a Peavey rage 158.............i probly need to look for a new amp, what is a good amp below 400$ that would be good for a college dorm situation? i kinda like the idea of a modeling amp but yea

sir, i would like to inform you that you are now my favorite UGer. Not only did you use the word y'all, which is native to my homeland, but you correctly punctuated it using the apostrophe.

Get a Line 6 Toneport or something similar and use your computer.

They are decent enough. Nothing close to a sexy tube amp, but versatile. I use my UX2 mostly as a mic preamp nowadays.

The GX is small and inexpensive.

Maybe go with a microcube?
Or try one of the crate v series.. like the v16 but that could be alittle loud for dorm, its under your budget though.
reach in the darkness for what you can find travel great distance in your mind.

I'd get a valvetronix... and they also have headphone sockets.
