i currently have a roland cube 1.5
ive had it for a while now, and i've been told i should get a new amp, im not sure should i and what ?
#2
Depends. Do you play in a band, with gigs? If you do you'll probably need more volume and better tone. If you just play in your room then you're probably okay right now.

Could you list some bands you are into? It would help me to recommend an amp for you.

cool thanks, but are there anything a bit smaller?

Are you planning to gig with it? Or just a bedroom amp?

Maybe the Valveking 1x12?

oh
my
god
no.

Search "Line 6 Spider" and you'll see how hated they are. One of the worsts amps made in my opinion.

I think the 40 watt Valveking would work for you.

Give me just a few minutes and I'll reply with a few more.

the 1x12 Valveking is 50 watt buddy. and the Valveking king isn't much of a bedroom amp, 50 watts of tube power is fully capable of gigs, and a little loud for a practice amp. there's better amps for the price than a Valveking. he's going to need a few pedals to start with too...

Sorry, I stand corrected. 50 watts.

What would he need pedals for?

pedals are fun too
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!

from what i remember from earlier he listed some indie/grunge bands or stuff like that. he's going to need some reverb, delay, overdrive and an EQ of sorts. idk, i would figure he would get a better tone with a few pedals.

oh okay so should i go eith the 50 watt or the marshall one, and i already have some pedals, i have a boss ds-1 and a pretty fun flanger pedal, but i am going to buy a harmonix small clone, unless the holy grail would be better ?
#20
what'd i miss, Marshall?
which Marshall are you getting?
well if you like the Flanger, keep it. i've never played the small clone before, but the holy grail seems like a pretty solid pedal. eh, not something i would get, i like to mess with random things when i'm at shops and it was pretty fun to play with for a few minutes.
