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

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

If you're not playing outside the house do you really need a big upgrade?

Sweaty, A recto would not be suited to the tones he's asking for. However, an F-30 might

Mesa Express or Mesa F-series amps
Egnater Rebel

Yes, this. It would literally be perfect for you, with the switchable wattage.

ANY amp is an upgrade over the MicroCube--that is the worst amp I have ever played let alone owned (purchased as an apartment amp without playing it first). Otherwise, 1000 for something over a Microcube is a staggering upgrade. Really not sure what to recommend as I'm not sure you even know what you'd really want.

peavey vypyr 75


Pros:
$300
1 12" speaker
Loud enough to keep up with drums at practice.
Very portable! (the 412 sucks for practice portable wise)
You'll still use it to practice with friends later, and you won't regret it later.
-Has a lot of efx to mess around with, rather than just one sound.
-Girls think its sexy!!


Cons:
Isn't enough sound for medium to large sized gigs


try it out....in fact go to your local guitar shop and try out a bunch of amps.
You'll be suprised that everything sound better than the micro.
See what YOU like.

we all like different things, so its up to you to find out what you like.

check out the previously mentioned Egnater, and just for the heck of it, try out some H&K amps, I personally think that you'd love them, might be a tad out of your price range though.

I would get a Carvin V3 or Peavey JSX.



This.


The V3 is actually one of my current GAS amps.
