I'm going to be buying a new amp, just a smaller one for around the house, and I could use some opinions.
I am trying to decide between a Marshall 15DFX or a Spider 3 15w

If anyone uses or has used either of these amps, your thoughts and opinions would be appreciated.
Thanks

I've played both and I own a Spider 2. For a practice amp I would pick the Spider. The built in effects give it some versatility and the tone is pretty good for a small solid state amp. Good Luck.

Any other suggestions? I'm looking for something small (15 - 30W), and also under $200.

Hi.
I owned a Marshall MG, and was sorry I bought it. The sound was very,very poor. I could not get a decent tone out of it. There are some other negitive postings on GMC about this amp. It is as far from a real Marshall as Gorilla amps are. I actually would go with the Spider, of you could check into some of the Peaveys. Those amps are known to be work horses. What it really comes down to, is what sounds good to you.
Good Luck.

I own a Marshall MG15 and I would not buy it again. The Spider III-15 will give you a lot of nice ekstra effects.

You could also check out the Roland Cube 20X, it's also a contender in that price range...
