Right guys I'm not too sure what to buy. I need a super cheap practice amp to take to sixth form college with me. It has to be lightweight, cheap/inexpensive and have basic controls like overdrive/gain.

Tone isn't really important aslong as it sounds better than the "phoenix" amps the school has. I would take my gear in but tbh it would probably get stolen and it's expensive do i don't wan't that.

Definately Second Hand

Has to be loud enough for a jam with a band, however the drum kits and bass amps are shite and a 15w amp (SS) cranked is plenty enough in the mix.

Any Suggestions.

Check out the Cheap Peavey Vypyr, they are cheap, and they sound better then just about anything else in that price range. I also think the roland cubes are good.

The line six spider 3 15W sounds like a good choice. Believe me these amps are terribly underated, you can get a good range of tones from cleans to metal with the right tweaking plus it comes with built in effects. Obv. not gonna be up to ur fender's standards, but nevertheless a good amp for your purposes

Nothing compliments a Gibson Les Paul Custom quite like a Fender Frontman 15R

Yeah figured as much. In the UK what's the cheapest you can get any of these?
