I have 350€ and i want to buy an amp for home practising. I've done a little research and I've found some amps: Blackstar id 30tvp, marshall mg30cf, vox vt 20x, fender mustang 2 and peavy vypyr 2. I want my amp to have good distortion and a good clean channel. Which one should i buy? Can you propose me a better amp for the money?

No replies yet so I'll give it a go - I am not an expert, although many others here are.

What I would consider is

1. How much power (Amps) do you want or need:

     a. If you practice at home, how loud can you play (without earphones) before disturbing others?

     b. Do you think you will ever want to perform outside your home - you might need a more powerful amp for that

2. If you want to play at home, do you need to have an earphone jack on the amp?

3. How important is having a broad selection of different voices, apart from distortion and clean?

4. How big and/or heavy/portable should your ideal amp be?


Sorry I can't be of more help, but other members will come along soon, who are more expert than me! :)

      Hi guys,
      I don't even know if that's that right place to ask, but I've been looking around for a good practice amp. I own a Les Paul copy and I've swapped out the pickups with alnico 2s and I've been playing directly to my PC for a while now, but I've got some money for an amp and I'd really love if you guys could help out with the choice. I live in Bulgaria, that means that the prices all weird and it's hard to pick an amp easily. I play mostly GnR stuff, I sometimes play clean too, it's not that often though. After all the research that I've done I can chose between Yamaha THR5, VOX VT20X and meybe if I save up a little more a Fender GT40. I just need to know if somebody has used them and been able to dial in great Slash tone. The budget seems to be about 200-240 USD, again weird prices because of import and stuff. The used market here isn't a viable choice. All help is appreciated and sorry if my English isn't very clear.

      Hello! I'm Trevor, I'm 19 and I've been involved in a lot of projects and jam sessions growing up with my friends. I've only focused on vocals for 4-5 years and I've kind of just gotten tired of it. I want to actually learn an instrument and a note system that I can directly understand and make use of for many types of genres not being restricted by a vocal range. 
      The situation right now is that I don't own a guitar with more than 3 strings and it will take a few weeks in order to get one and I had questions based on what I can start trying to learn now while I'm waiting to get my hands on a working guitar. As the years go by and I get more skilled, I'd like to focus mainly on Math Rock, similar to artists like CHON and Via Luna. I specify this because I love the emotion that can be given simply from instrumental music and it has a big factor in my self development. So here are my questions;
      1. Based on where I want to take my guitar playing, what type of guitar should I look to purchase, an acoustic, or electric?
      2. What topics should I look up and study before I obtain a working guitar, I have a 3 string acoustic that I can use as a reference for notes, etc.? Stuff that I can write down and study every day like music theory, but wanted to know if there is more than that.
      3. I am avoiding physical lessons, so when I have a guitar, who would you guys recommend for beginners wanting to pursue in more technical finger tapping riffs, or if I should start and learn the basics before branching off into that?
      Thank You! (:

      On December 9th Carl and I had a jam session and recorded it.  Carl plays bass, I play guitar, and a guest, Dismal Turgid, on drums.  We played it through a couple times and then picked our favorite.
      This is also my mix, without Carl helping.  I don't hear low frequencies well at all.  But, I gave it my best shot as a mix.  Its a fairly easy mix.  Just drums, bass, and guitar.
      Let me know what you think of my half deaf jamming and mixing.  Its different now that I can't hear well.
