hey people, i just got my first electric guitar, an ibanez s620exqm, but i'm lookin fr a decent amplifier to go with it. i need an amp which i can use for bedroom playing, where i cant be too loud, n for jammin with the band, drummer n all. i'm lookin at 10-20 watts, $50-$120, it should have a good clean channel and atleast distortion, preferably also sum more effects. i'm currently looking at a marhsall mg10cd(is it powerful enough? also not convinced with its sound quality??sum inputs pls....) and a roland cube 15, n wud greatly appreciate it if sum1 cud give me sum suggestions.
ps-i have alredy ruled out the roland micro cube, not sure if its loud enough.
pps- i live in india, most companies are available, but no vox or nethin pls.
thanks a lot!!!!

Well, the roland cubes are great practice amps.
But I doubt that a 15 watt SS amp could keep up with a band....
I guess it depends on how loud the drummer is.

dude cash is not a prob, i just need a decent practise amp, i hav checked out the prices, i'm not really looking for anything with too many effects anyway, but a good clean and a good overdrive at the very least, and some more effects if possible. $150 should be enough for that

Well what prices have you checked out? I mean 10-20 watts is not really gonna be heard over a drummer, that's the point he was making.

oh, sorry, didnt realise what he meant. well the roland cube 15 is around 135 bucks, the marshall mg10cd is $75. i'm also getting pretty confused cuz a lot of reviews say that the amp(roland cube 15 that is) is loud enough. i'm also ruling out tubes, so no valve junior, acoustician 630, sorry, but thanks anyway

Ok well if your ruling out tubes im sure you have your reasons and i'll say no more about them. But i will say the MG is a bad call, so ur vetoing tubes and im vetoing that :P

The cube series are fairly good, i have a microcube which has served me well as a practice amp, but the trouble with low watt solid states is that they sound awful when u crank them, and to keep up with a drummer u will struggle to be heard let alone sound good with a 15 watt SS.

dude....youre doing it wrong

i dont own a single guitar worth more than my amp, and i have great tone as a result.

youre skimping on the amp, and thats the most important part of the rig. you have an $800 guitar, and you expect good tone from a $50 amp? jog on.

theyre all decent amps, only the last one would cope with a drummer really

IMO you spend too much on the guitar, and neglected the amp seriously
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.
