Distortion pedals don't work on my amp so I need a new one. (It's a spider
Thinking about a Roland Cube 15w but I heard the 15w's are not nearly as good as the 30w's or 50w's..

His budget was $200, the 30w is more then that.

The price doesn't justify buying a complete shit amp. The 20 watt and lower roland cubes are worse than the Marshall MG's.

Go for a 30+watt Roland Cube. Ebay is your friend, you can probably find a 60watter for $150-$200.

EDIT:

Musicians friend has a scratch and dent one for $220. They guarantee it will work, or you can return it.

I won't argue with you about that. But he said his budget and that cube fit.

Makes sense. I just had to deal with a Cube 20 for guitar lessons, while my teacher had the 30. I could never get a tone half as decent as his.

I highly advise the 30 vs the 20.

Really? I honestly wouldn't think 10w would make THAT big of a difference.

between the cube 30 and the cube 20X

the 30 is far better, its all in the 10" speaker as compared to the 8"

i can't seem to find a price on the standard cube 30.. but the difference between a 20x and a 30x is about 65$ on musiciansfriend.

Oh I had no idea the speaker size was different.

I knew a guy who tried to use a Kustom 10w amplifier, with like... a 6" speaker in it, and he tried to play with a drummer.

Many... many lulz.

Distortion pedals will sound HORRIBLE through a cube. But, seeing as it's a modeler, you won't need any...I hope.

I think the 30 has a few more onboard options as well, I think. It's been about a month since I've run them side by side.
