Best value practice guitar amp?

Recommended Posts

I am considering purchasing a 10-15w practice amp, but I'm not too sure where to start. I'm not wanting to spend a ridiculous amount of money so no recommending 5w class a boutique amps :p ...Just something that doesn't sound like a wasp in a can.

What you want is a Laney LC15, it is 15W all tube, great sound, great value.

Ask Domino, i think he has one?

I do have Laney VC-15 Though it's not for sale, nor it will be in the future probably :-) Great amp for home practising.

LC15 would be a good choice too, though i Think it doesn't have a Drive Channel when VC series does.

I have A Squier Affinity Series strat for sale(i was thinking of keeping it but who cares), sunburst, maple fingerboard. Probably using search you could find a thread. If you're interested

The Microcube is ace, don't think it's anything near 15 watts though. PLenty loud enough for home use.

Fender were supposed to be releasing their own version of the valve junior but I don't know what happened to it.

Microcube is pretty good. The little valve powered Laneys aren't bad, same goes for the valve junior.

There's also Line 6 Spiders and Orange Crush's in the lower down price bracket :up:

fender blues junior is good too... :popcorn:

Those things are pretty loud for practice amps.

I do hear good things about the cheap little Epiphone valve amps though.

They're ok you can still crank em up above 5 in a flat ... so it's not too bad... depends on neighbors. I think those valve juniors got like one volume knob or smth..? Can't remember exactly.... It would be a bit better having equalizer and even a second channel ;/ Or you'd have to buy a booster or a dist. pedal for it.

My verdict would be

Peavey Bandit - ok

Roland Microcube - reasonably good

Laney LC15 - really quite good

Fender Blues Junior - amazing but expensive

That is more or less the order of price though. You almost get what you pay for with stuff like this.
