I'm in desperate need of a new guitar amp. I currently have a Fender Frontman 15G which rapes my ears every time I turn the volume up. I was looking through different sites and it seems like the Roland Microcube got some good reviews. But I wanted some other suggestions as well.

It's only going to be a practice amp. I'm not going to do any gigging anytime soon.
$200 is about my spending limit.
Effects are fun, but I'd rather quality over quantity.
And something that doesn't require a lot of (if any) maintenance.

Thanks in advance.

Line 6 Spider III. Its good for low volume playing, seriously. (prepares to be flamed)

any of the cube series will be good. I have th micro cube and it is only missing one thing a foot switch but for $125 I got over it.

That's such a ****ing brilliant idea!

Epi Valve Junior?
What do you play?

If you play cleans and blues, get the EVJ.

If you like metal and stuff, go for the microcube.

I think that the Roland Cube Series are awsome amps, I've owned two before. The microcube is great. You don't really need more than five watts for practice, it's pleanty loud.

i like vox's valvetronix series, i think the distortion is much better sounding than the cube series, but that's just me.

Valve Junior, or....Peavey rage stuff is pretty nice for Solid State.

and yeah....Line 6 isn't bad at low volume for PRACTICE.

I play a lot of classic rock and blues. But I would like to be able to switch up the sound to something heavier sometimes.

In that case, get an EVJ and an OD maybe.
Or, go for a vox VT or the cube.
