i am going to buy a guitar in some time(maybe months or a year)(squier VM fat strat most likely)

and i need to know what kind of amp should i buy
here is the info you will probably ask
i play punk/pop punk/ska
i only need around 30 or 40 watts(just practice)
i would like some amp with nice cleans
i will buy a DS 1 pedal so it should sound good with that effect
EDIT: i dont want to spend more than 200$ on the amp

I'd go with a Roland Cube or whatever they're called then, I've heard nothing but good about them. And by personal preference I believe Orange makes a little amp, Orange makes f*cking quality stuff.

And the DS-1 is a great pedal for the money. Good call

^ Not the line 6 Spider please
What's your budget? the Cube sounds like a good suggestion...

roland cube defs,, or even a line 6 spider 3. whatevr suits you



Get a Roland Cube for shure. I have the MicroCube and Cube 60, and the're both awesome amps. got great cleans and work really well with pedals to, so you can play a really wide range of stuff on them. Whatever you do, don't get a Line 6.

I used a Ibanez Tone Blaster 25watt for practice. it was a great amp. no idea the price range on it, but, it ruled..

whats your budget

if its big then im thinking AC15

it will fit the ska perfectly and the pop punk
but for regular punk since your getting the DS-1 it will be good for that to

and to the guy who mentioned clasic 30
isnt 30 a bit to much for practice

thanks for making your self look stupid

totally unnesecary

but its funny
that your stupid

Actually now that I think about it the Classic 30 is really more of a gigging amp but hell for the price how can you go wrong? Plus he asked for 30-40 watts and didn't specify SS or Tube. Other alternatives would be the Epi Valve Junior and that Blackheart. Also the Crate Palomino series, Peavey Valveking Royal 8, Fender Pro Junior.

i think that palominos are over hyped to tell you the truth
i tried one out the other day and i honestly believe that if you buy a palomino
its just for this whole ****ing tube hype all these UG tube loving ****s rave about
in my opinion a regular SS roland cube or vox valvetronix are a bettor buy than a
palomino, not just a bettor buy but a bettor amp
and calling it a poor mans marshall is really stretching the truth
for the price and for the quality in sound there real ****
the others you mentioned are good and are the reasons you should be buying a tube amp
but like i said a palomino is just ****

I think this pick is funny.



If you're talking about buying a few months from now, consider one of the Blackheart amps and a few good pedals.

I'm getting one, so I'll be able to give you a full review in 5 or 6 weeks.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Well the consensus in here are that the Dirty Fingers are overpriced. I obviously disagree. They are killer. If you want to replace the PUPS in your EPI, get the Dirty Fingers! They are mean. You would think that a high output pickup like that would not be good for cleans. But they are sweet. Don't pay over 99 for them though.

the epi pups are good but they lack tone
i really like to play chords on it on the clean channel and that is just chords
on the dirty its really high

i just want a pick up that would be good for both
a dream pick up
