Never tried any of the Line 6 spiders, but judging from reviews.. it's more than good enough as a practice-amp

Btw..Ever tried a Roland Cube-60? I believe those are good too. And not that expensive.

hmm. are you talking about the spider with like a bazzilion pre-sets or just the standard spider with a few effects and stuff?

I guess for beginners, there pretty good. Good price for something that sounds decent. On the long run, it will sound more and more digital but it won't matter unless your a tone seeker.

The amp that I got as a beginner was a Marshall MG100DFX, and I was able to get it like $400. It's a 100watt combo with some ok effects built in, so it's a little big for a beginner, but it has lasted me and is suitable for doing gigs with. It doesn't sound like anything amazing, but it's good for a solid state. If you want something for a practice amp that can be more than just a practice amp, that's what I would go with.

Considered a Vox? If not, you should..
I think the effects in the AD-series is better than the Line6.

But I've only heard the Line6, never tried it myself so I might be wrong but..

I've got a vox and it's phenomenal smile.gif



And as Trond said, The Roland Cube series are good as well!

If it is for practice, I wouldn't considering buying a 100W! You will never use it above 2-3 in volume indoors man. For practice 15W tube amp, or a 30 watt solidstate (with a 12" speaker) will do just FINE. If you can't find anything similar, then try some Vox Valvetronic's if you can find them . They are imo better than Line6. A small Valvetronic around 50W will be just enough.

Yeah, that's the only thing that I regret. I wish that I had something smaller just for practice.

Battery amp is unusable really, it doesn't have a good sound and it will probably have worse sound than his current amp.

Well depending what you can find there I would say, again, that a 15W tube amp or 50W solidstate both with 12" speakers will be the maximum amount of power that you need for home practice in order to have a nice sound too. So check something along those lines.

I have the Squier beginner pack aswell i received my pack from Musicstore somewhere in germany and the day after i drove to a musicstore and bought a Roland Cube 20X its like a million times better and has allot of built in effects and modes so you get a decent sound out of that Squier. The cube 20x was 175 euros the 15x a bit over 100 euros and the 30x was 225 euros it's real value for money wink.gif

this is a video revieuw of the cube 20x:

If you must use it for small gigs that it's another story. 12" speaker and 75W Hybrid, or 40W tube amp are minimum that you need.

Check Vox 100 Valvetronic, Marshall DSL401, Randall RG75W,or maybe some Peavey's, but hey do not have a good clean. Randall's have great Fender-like cleans, especially hybrids
