im hoping to spend under £100 on a new amp

its gonna be sittin under my desk so nothing too big

i dont really wanna exceed 50 watts, cos tbh i dont really need that much power lol

i play mainly metal but also some blues, hard rock, prog rock.

i have a Zoom 606 so i have basic effects but it would be good to have some on my amp too

can you help me out please?

Gear:

Epiphone Les Paul Custom
15 Watt Laney Hardcore MX
Zoom 606 Multi-Effects Pedal
Tanglewood Rebel 4K [SELLING]

What sort of genres do you play? Do you need loads of versatility/settings or are you looking at a small tube amp?


HakEdit: if your looking for a tube amp, a nice one for blues/rock is the Harley Benton GA5 (identical to the Epi Jnr but with a tone knob)

Are you looking to gig/practice with a drummer in the near-ish future?

Because tbh you will probably just be wasting money getting another amp, netherless.

I say scrap the zoom, its pretty shabby, and maybe get a roland cube. Quite a few different settings/effects, and it doesnt sound too bad, better than the zoom pedal anyway.

I have one omen-6 (the wood finish one), and I don't like it it does not sustain the tones pretty well. Save for at least a epiphone. Compare the omen-6 to ibanez, I think ibenez is better. Between epi and ibanez, I am not sure...

everyone on this website seems to either have an ibanez and love it, or want one and really love them lol.

i might have to look into ibanez's

i think i shud look into jackson guitars aswell, altho they might be slightly over my budget lol
