Yes its a practice amp and it is a bad one. I own Spider II 30 and I absolutely hate it. I'm looking to change it with some other practice amps like vox or cube 30x.
I recommend you not to buy this amp, and research more.

Epiphone Les Paul Gothic
Blackstar Ht-5

Take a look at the Vox Valvetronix.

The Line 6 isn't really loved here.

since your buying 30 watts, i assume you need it for live performance and not just practice.

basically, the tone sucks. You'll regret it if you're serious about guitar

Assuming your talking about the spider III, I'm not very fond of them. Their tone is very thin and raspy and it is generally despised on this forum with good reason. There are better 30 watt practice amps with huge versatility. Most notably, the Roland cube 30.

Music style and budget isnt an issue when it comes to a spider theres never a reason to buy one.

Try telling my singer that. He bought the band a beastly 75 watt one, despite the fact that I told him to get a Valveking.

I'm with acdcrocks on this one.

The Palomino would be really good for what you play.

if you're talking about the spider, don't get it. It'll seem really good for about half an hour (long enough for you to go into a shop, try it and say "yeah i like this amp" and buy it), but then you start to get fed up with how cold and sterile the tone is, and begin to hate it. Get the Vox AD30VT if you play medium-gain stuff like classic rock, or the Roland cube if you wanna play metal stuff. They are both far superior. Or if you don't need the wide array of tones and just one one damn good one, go used and get a tube amp like the peavey classic 30 or palomino V16 as mentioned by acdcrocks0323 and mcrfobtai.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

You trusted your singer to buy the guitarist's amp?
