+1 If you really cannot save a little bit more.

Microcube is the way to go though.

Enjoy your ban.

so can the Microcube get a good heavy metal sound?

The Microcube is a perhaps the most versatile beginners amp. Definitely a good place to start.

I hear it does
Theres also the Spider III 15W.. Don't get it for heavy sound.
I have a Spider. Distortion is kinda weak.
It needs a Distortion pedal to go with it.

So buy a microcube
#10
should i buy a second hand roland cube 15w? and is it better than the microcube? i can get one for about £50.
#11
The 15w doesn't have as many features as the cube. The Microcube can be used with batteries making it very portable. They are both good practice amps, avoid the spider like herpes.

so the microcube over the 15w then? and how loud would you say the microcube is?
#14
The MicroCube is a 5watt amp, the total output is 2 watts I believe. Roland makes 15 watt, 30 watt and 60 watt "cubes". But the MicroCube is the 5 watt version packed with options.
Edit: Loud enough for practice, not going to hold up well to a drummer tho.
