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! :)

      As an old guy who is 50 years old, I finally decided on a hobby and it's the guitar.  
       
      I ordered the cheapest electric guitar beginner set on Amazon.
       
      If I stick with this consistently for 6 months, I will invest in good equipment.
       
      Well, it's been 9 months, I spend an hour each day; 5 days a week practicing guitar.
       
      Now, I'm in the process of upgrading to a semi-hollow or hollow body guitar.

      I admit that I'm an incredibly slow learner and youtube.com guitar lessons drive me nuts.
       
      I started a subscription to guitartricks.com and the introductory lessons are really slow;  to my liking.
       

      Since I have a million questions about equipment, I'll hold off because there are other areas to post those questions.
       
      But, I'd like to network with other beginner guitarists (less than 6 months experience) in the Washington D.C. metro area (Rockville, MD).
       
      If anybody can give advice on how to meet other beginner guitarists, then I welcome your advice.
       
      My girlfriend hates going to Guitar Center with me and doesn't practice her acoustic guitar so it would be nice to meet others with similar interests.
       
      Thanks in advance for your feedback.
       
      Wish me luck.
