line 6 spider. any of em are good. i prefer the II's, though. you don't even need an overdrive or anything with these amps. they're great.

Yes you should be beaten with a stick

Roland cube or a used ashdown fallen angel or something

Peavey valveking?

If it's under £300 then I guess a Cube might be your best option.

You don't really "Need" any amp greater than 30, IMO. Though there's the Cube 60. that'll probably be your best bet. It has much more personality than the Spider.

I have a Roland Cube15 and the distortion sounds are my friends' envy. I would not expect the Cube60 to disapoint!

the other cubes are far better than the 15- the 15 doesn't have the amp moddelling which makes cubes so good.

You could get a II for a lower price, and the II's sound better imo. Look on craigslist, thats where I got mine. I seriously have to clue why people hate them.

Cubes are 10x better than spiders. I own a spider II 150 and trust me it sucks. I actually went and bought a distortion pedal and never use any of it's cool effects. All of the effects really DO suck! When you hear the sound clips on their website your like.... ok... sounds good to be, well they play really fast with a lotta strumming cause when you let the note ring it sounds like balls! For that price, I would get a roland cube 60

OR
a peavy valveking 50 watts
http://www.zzounds.com/item--PEVVKING112

For the valvekind i would reccommend getting a distortion pedal so you can "crank" those tubes at low volume and get the tube warmth out of them, but it is not nessesary.

Vox AD15VT's are great. They are really cheap but they are way worth the money, (£120).
Far better than the 15-watt Roland Cube's in my opinion.

Yeah at your price range I would go with the cube, my friend has one and it's pretty good for those metal sounds.


********Disregard the advice in this thread telling you to get the spiders!*************


Edit: I just realized you were in pounds not USD so the Pevey Valveking 112 is in your price range right (I don't know how expensive they are over the pond)?

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.
