Anyone know a good, relatively cheap guitar amp. I'm looking in the 10 to 15w range. Basically want anything that avoids the dreaded hiss and isn't hideously expensive. I've got roughly £30, yeah it's not much but I'm the skints.

Thanks,

all u can hope for with 30 dollars is a headphone amp


No, that'll be around $60.

Anybody got an opinion on maybe a Line 6 Spider-2. I'm quite tempted by one.

Not too good. Even for practicing, I hate the tone (even low wattage ones at low volume).

There's not really any good amp for £30, unless you for go http://www.thomann.de/gb/harley_benton_cg_15.htm or the spider.

They're okay, but you need atleast a 50w to get a good sound, failing that get a spider 3 well better, i've got 2, a 15w for practise and a 75w for gigs, they both have a great sound.

I would save my money for something better, because if you get something crappy now you'll eventually want to replace it anyway.

That amp is for practice - and would suck for any form of live playing!

Looking on ebay I've found...

Line 6 Spider II - 15w
Line 6 Spider 3 - 15w
Marshall Reverb 12

Opinions anyone?

Really tempted by either of the Line 6 amps. Would they be good for the NIN, Rammstein tone I aim for?

Behringer gets bashed on this site constantly, but the 15 watt Behringer V-Tone GM108 is in your price range and they are not bad for a practice amp. They have some built in modeling to get some different sounds. It's fine for a practice amp, but not powerful enough for anything else.

Yes, save more and get a microcube.
