The MG sucks, the Spider sucks and the Toneport isn't actually an amp.

How much money do you have to spend and what kind of tones do you want?

Unless you have something to plug into the Toneport for an output you won't have any sound...the other two both sound equally gash, just in their own special ways.

Once again....how much do you have to spend and what kind of tones do you like?

i have up to $ 250 for the amp. and i play blues/rock. Hendrix/Clapton/Page/Frusciante sound is what im looking for.

and yeah, i do have something to plug in the toneport which is my computer. I figured the toneport would be convienient b/c once i move into a dorm it won't takey any space and i would just plug and play. But I don't know how good they sound or the ease of use of them.


and im getting two amps eventually, first a ss state amp i can practice and use for college and a marshall tube combo that I'll use for home and gigging.

An Epi Valve Junior would be great for you, but it can get awfully loud for such a little thing...you'd probably want an overdrive pedal as well to give you more gain at sociable volumes.

I agree with the VJ suggestion, it will get you them tones alot better than a crappy SS will.
#16
For practicing purposes, the Tone Port is a good alternative to a crappy SS amp. It can also be used for recording and stuff.
#17
If you want purely a practice thingamabob get a Pocket Pod and a good pair of headphones. If you want an amp, the other guys already made good suggestions, except for the guy who said "save up for a tube combo", who is quite clearly a very well trained parrot and should be ignored.

The Toneport is good for dorm room practice .

It'll also let you record stuff.

I'm also gonna recomend the VOX DA-5. It's solid state, small in size, and it packs a punch. Has some really nice and useable tones.
