I'm looking for a cheap amp, something around the $100 dollar range and I want it with built in distortion, but I don't know any good ones. Anybody got any suggestions?

Cheap as in "quiet cheap" or cheap as in "crappy tone cheap"?
#8
If you already have an amp without distortion you can buy a distortion pedal, that'll usually have better gain than an amp with terrible distortion. You'll need the pedal, another cable, an AC adaptor, but it'll cost less than $100.

#12
really? wat electric r u getting?

thast would affect wether or not to get the spider III. if ure guitar is 250 or more, id say go for the 30, if not, maybe the 15 or a different amp.

the cheaper ones are pretty bad there real crap actually, but the customs are really great all you need is new picups for them.
you could really do alot bettor on craigslist.
id have to say go for a crate flexwave, its bettor than the cube actually and its got a bigger speaker so it will sound bettor, alot of people would say **** the flexwave but its got a good distortion and good cleans if you ask me and they dont sound as **** as other SS amps when you turn them up.
I have a cube and the flexwave is the bettor amp hands down.

youll be very happy with it for now, but its bettor than the cube.

oh and im just comparing the micro to the flexwave 15.
alot of people are ganna say go with the micro but try out the flexwave before you buy the micor just has two usable channels and they all go to crap before you hit 6 oclock on the volume.

Hmmm, the Line 6 Spider III 15 and the Crate Flexwave are looking good to me, especially the Flexwave since as blabermouth said, its bigger, but its only 15 pounds, so I could take it wherever, which is good.

^actually i take back my statement on the 6 oclock thing it was just low on batteries.
stupid me i pluged it back in and it is awesome again.
I go back to the micro cube.
it gets pretty loud for 5 watts and the cleans are pretty good to.
dint get the spider please please please.
if your ganna get anything just look at the 5 watt cube and the flexwave.
dont be fulled by 5 watts this thing gets loud.
i think youll like the cube bettor actually.
**** this thread makes me look like such a flip flopper.

Why, the Spider's no good?

Don't get a Spider III.

MicroCube and Flexwave are better options.

get a roland cube 15x. i have one and it is a good amp with a nice distortion. it doesn't have effects or anything like that but for the price it is way better than any spider III or flexwave you can find.
