Hey, I'm heading to the music store later, and I'm wondering what to get. I could get a new amp (A small Line 6) with special effects, or a distortion pedal. Which one is better? I already have an amp btw, but it has no effects, and generally just blows <,<

Amp? Guitar? Genre?

Genre: Blues, Rock, Metal
Money: Probably about 100 dollars (However, if it's 150, I can do that). I don't need a big amp, just with settings
My current Amp: Not really a guitar amp. It was designed for me to electrify a wooden cello, so yeah <-<;;

You people are ridiculous, granted he's probably looking at a cheap Spider, but we could be wrong. He's also probably new to guitar so a tube amp isn't likely going to be a good purchase until he knows what exact sound he wants, something like a Valvetronix or a Cube would be better.

Yeah. I've played for a month, but I have 10 years previous experience at Cello (I bought the guitar after performing at Lincoln Center with the cello). I don't know enough about amps or the like to pick one wisely for my self, especially at price, which is why I asked. I assume an amp is a better choice then distortion, considering no one even mentioned it?

Definitely a new amp, I would recommend a Roland Micro Cube at that budget. It's small, but it will cover all the sounds you want and it's about $125 online.

This looks pretty close to what I was looking for, thanks! I dun need gigging material, afterall. Does this only run on batteries, or could I plug this?
#12
It comes with an AC adapter, so no need for batteries.

Sweet. I typed it in, and the first one that I saw (Off the Roland site) had batteries, so I was a bit nervous. 20 hours on 6 batteries isn't terribly good, considering as I actually enjoy practice quite a bit.
#14
Don't worry, you can plug it in. It also has quite a few effects and amp models and if you want you can use headphones, although I doubt it will get too loud.

You forgot the "s" at the end!

Hope you enjoy your new amp!
