I'm getting my first electric guitar and will need an amp. I will just be a practicing and goofing around the house amp, not in a band. I saw a Marshall MS15DFX on craigslist for $80 used. Without spending over $125 what else should I consider, new or used?

Roland Microcube or nothing.

Roland MicroCube is $125, and is a great amp.

+100

The MC amps have some great sounding FX and are great for the price range.
The smaller tube amps like the valve Jr. are a little noisy for my taste.

valve junior will sound way better but has less options

so if you want to mess around with effects the cube

but if you get serious about guitar there will come a day when you kick yourself for not getting the valve junior just because it only has one knob... nothing beats tube

A Valve Jr is NOT a beginner amp! The Microcube is a much better choice.

roland cube is overated but still get it.


If you're talking from experience with the 20X, please don't. Usually when people suggest the Cube series, they remember to mention that the 20 and the 15 suck. The Roland Cube series is known for it's good amp modelling and effects, of which the 20 and 15 have none.

Edit: The Microcube is better than the Valve Junior because you can only get clean from the Valve Junior, and overdrive if you crank it. No distortion there. Way too little variety for someone how's just learning to play guitar, IMO. Of course it has a better tone.
