I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

the search bar, it has all the answers

but there are to many to choose from. Just go to a store and mess around with some amps

Hmm... probably a cube, because giving tube amps to beginners is pointless, with SS, they can experiment with different sounds and find what they like.

So make the very best of it

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

A Mesa Roadking because it's versatile enough to cover everything, and it just owns.




But seriously, for low-budget, probably a Vox Valvetronix or Roland Cube.

Or if they know they're not going to need a lot of gain, an Epiphone Valve Junior.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

these 3, definitely. the Valvetronix has a real tube in the preamp or something, Valve Junior's cheap and all tube, and you can add a cab for more power, Cube is very versatile.

whatever you do, DO NOT buy a Line Six Spider

+1

They need to realize that some stuff out there just absolutely sucks. I started with a Frontman and (upgraded??) to a Marshall MG.

Plus, it will make them realize there is MUCH more to gear than just a nametag.

+1 or a Peavey transtube with EFX. Best way to learn what all the efx are about. Then move to tube and pedals as quickly as possible.
