right, i want a new practice amp....ive got a big ass 100watt Laney PL100 but i can get the optimum sound out of it as i get a bollocking by my parents/neighbors if i turn it past two. I was looking to spend about 100-150 quid on amp (roughly about 15-30 watts just nothing too loud) but then all mates are just like "Ere you, should get an effects board instead" and they've got me all confused


So i turn to you almighty UG forum viewers, tell me, tell me what to do


PS: i WAS considering something like a line 6 spider...if anyone can tell me more it would be apprciated!!

Why do you need to turn it past 2? It's a solid state, and therefore sounds worse when it's turned up, not better.

I think he should go with the 20 watt. The bigger speaker gives better tone in my opinion.

AH i didnt know that, but still its got no real decent distortion on, would you suggest a decent effects pedal instead then?

Some Roland Cube amp. Those things are awesome on volume, size, and they're really light.

i know the wattage you said but maybe check out the epiphone valve junior, you can get optimum tone at reasonable, yet still loud volumes

A pedal's worth a look, but a decent tube combo would really be the way to go, especially if you can find one with an attenuator. I'm not familiar with your amp specifically, how much do you think you could sell it for?

you get distortion from turning up tube amps, not solid state. if you really need a practice amp just buy a roland minicube or something, but don't spend a whole lot on it. you're better off just saving for something better (pickups, effects, tube amp, etc.)
