I will be going away to college in the fall and my current amp needless to say would take up far too much room in my dorm I was wondering what you guys would recommend to use as a practice amp? the smaller the better, but I also want quality thanks

marshall do a series of really small amps, orange do too.

fender or roland are good for practise amps, but only roland if your not planning on taking any pedals

if you were to get a roland get a micro cube. i had one and they are amazing for the size

A few questions:

1. What is your current amp?
2. How far away is your college?
3. Budget?



my current amp is an Ampeg BA 115

I live in southern California and willl go to the University of Oregon so pretty far

my budget would be under $200

hope that helps

I like the Acoustic AB50. 150. and you can go relatively quiet on it. but, it is pretty heavy for a practice amp.

Honestly, I would bring the amp you have. It's a little big, but definitely not massive. Besides, it's college, your going to have a few 24 packs of beer sitting in the corner of your room. I would just put the amp there instead.

And if you ever jammed with someone, a little practice amp isn't going to compete with a whole lot.

You might wanna take a look at the "Phil Jones" amps, they do tiny little speakers, which can make a load noise if you really want it, bet they are the size of a Briefcase, they are a bit pricey however, but worth a look at all the same.

I'm thinking your like the guy who says buy a American Deluxe Jazz when the kid has $56.89 bucks... he isn't spending 600 bucks, even on a better amp. I think.
