look into ashdowns, i have a MAG and its an awesome amp for the price. they have cheaper ones which are also pretty good. i definately suggest going to a music shop near you and trying a few out see if its the kind of tthing your looking for.

If you are going into a band, you will need much more in order to afford a powerful enough amp to compete with drums.

Sadly, most will be about double your budget.

£150 just won't buy that much.

The guys are right, to play in a band you're probably looking at a higher budget to get a decent amp. And please stop typing like that, it makes my brain hurt. All I ask is that we use some cohesive sentences with capitalization, punctuation, and proper spelling (or at least attempting to do so). Thank you!

Crate, Behringer or Ashton will give you the most bang for your buck!

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

Don't be such a hypocrite! You put commas in two places where a new sentence should have been started.

Look into the Ashdown Electric Blue 15 180, might be a little over budget, but they're definitely worth it!

Semicolons would suffice.

In that budget, I'd look at peavey. I've always found their gear to be built like tanks.

If you can't get to the budget level of a Ashdown or a GK, Peavey is a good option.

Personally, I'd avoid Crate--I have never been dazzled by the quality or the sound.

It's funny, because I love my little crate BT12. For its size, quality, and price, it gets a semi-convincing metal tone. Yes, it only has 12 watts RMS, but for bedroom practicing I don't mind it when I dont feel like waiting for the SVT to warm up (or when I don't want my parents to complain from the other end of the house about the noise). I by no means recommend a crate if you're even thinking of playing with another person, though.
