I havent been playin guitar for that long. Can play most stuff but cant come up with my own stuff yet. Anyway I just started Uni and need some new gear to play here. I was thinkin of gettin a small amp. (30 W - 50 W). And the suggestions a friend of mine made were Line 6 Spider III 30, Line 6 Spider III 75, Marshall MG30DFX or Marshall50DFX. I am not lookin to get a pedal just yet but would like some decent overdrive on the amp itself. The tone I'm lookin for is an early metallica-ish thrash tone. I know that without better gear and effects n stuff you cant really get that tone but like i said this is just to play while i'm here at uni. will buy better gear after i finish. No gigging. But jamming with friends (and drummers). So what you guys think of the suggestion or you have other better alternatives? I am in Australia. Just thought to post here coz i know you guys r like way ahead of me in terms of experience and stuff so thought would give me a more well informed decision than my friend. Thanks in advance

DO NOT buy any of those amps you just listed. All a complete waste of money.

I'm not really good with prices in Australia so I'll wait till someone else knows more about what's in your price range since I know a lot of the stuff in the states that's around the same as those amps is a lot more there.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

The Windsor Studio sounds like turd from what I've heard. It sounds nothing like the head.


The Valveking would be good or a Randall RG50TC.

Um, he is an aussie. They get screwed with prices. You guys might wanna rethink your suggestions.

Thanks for all the replies. I've been lookin around myself. There are two Randall amps that interest me. One of them is the Randall RG50TC that one of you guys recommended and the other is Randall RG100SCG2, the 100 W one is solid state while the 50W is a tube one. The 50W one is for $1000. while the 100 W is $650.
