Would this iron be good for beginner amp building/modding?

i dont really know much but i know the tips are changable and thats good.

If this wouldnt be succifent then could anyone recommend a decent iron (perferably under 35 usd)

thanks in advance

DON'T BUY THAT
I just bought one after 6 minutes of putting a killswitch in the tip broke. And it doesn't come with extra tips. The unit blows. Go to radio shack maybe they might have something but do not buy this.

I wouldn't go for that one, I went for mains electricity one, like above said about 30w is good. Don't know what that one is like that you posted, but you can't go wrong with a mains 30w iron.

It will not be good.

Cold solder is never good for music gear. For amp building I'd suggest getting yourself a soldering station with an adjustable temp. Something like this http://cgi.ebay.com/60W-TEMP-CONT-SOLDER-STATION-SOLDERING-IRON-B-NEW_W0QQitemZ200198854687QQihZ010QQcategoryZ109556QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem would be great for somebody just getting into it. As you build more and more you will want something better, but this is a really good start and not THAT much more than a regular soldering irion.
Not taking any online orders.

In my experience cold solder isn't good for ANYTING. Get a station and soldering gun.
