Hey guys, long time no talk. So I've been looking for a new amp lately. Something small (not tiny, but definitely not a half stack.) that I can take with me when I jam at people's houses. I'm thinking of a Vox or Fender. Any recommendations? Thanks!

I like orange. They are relatively small based on the model and they sound amazing. Just my opinion.

Something like this.

Yea, Orange is amazing.....If you can afford it.

Honestly I would suggest a Fender. I also like Laney amps but I have no idea where to get them. I've never really liked Vox. Small Marshalls are crap. Never buy a Line 6. I think I've covered quite a few brands.

I've heard a few people trash Line 6 on the forum and I can't figure out why. I have a Spider III 15 & a PODxt live. I am pleased with both of them. NO they aren't the best you can play on but I don't consider them crap. So I'm like ???????????????????

@mosh He didnt call the Line crap,He calledthe mini marshalls crap.

The orange are a bit on the pricey side,But well worth it. For a less expensive model I have always liked brands like crate or fender. They both are good. Crate distortion is a little muddy. But fenders are a little thin. Do you plan on using pedals?

Thanks for the suggestions I'll check them all out. I'm willing to save up a lot for something nice that will last. I forgot to mention I'm looking for something with a good clean sound. I've got some pedals that I'll use for other effects.

@Mosh

To each his own. I owned the exact same amp you mentioned and I wasn't very fond of it. Very very digital sounding. Was good for a first amp though.

@LedZeppRox

If your looking for a good clean sound definitely go for the Fender...definitely.

I'd go for (In order)

Roland Cube series amp- Best value for the money and great small amps and awesome variety

Vox- A little pricey but great EQ's and effects and solid tones

Carvin- A little more expensive than the Vox, but better quality and the best clean tones for the money as well as solid distortion, though you only get get standard EQ's and effects are nothing great

Fender- Classic tones, solid cleans and good EQ, but poor distortion for anything heavier

Orange- Great cleans and good EQ but very pricey and cheesy distortion

Marshall- Good beginner amp, easy to use and find an adequate enough tones plus decent effects and EQ. Cleans are nothing great and distortions are generic sounding and the amps are over priced

Line Six- Usually cheaper, great effects variety and a decent EQ,
NOT FOR BEGINNERS, difficult to find a good tone, poor wiring - consider packaging this amp with a compressor or noise suppressor.

Hope that helps!

Rock on!

Thanks for the reason you don't like them. It was not meant as a direct attack to you. I just read a lot of statements putting them down but none gave explanations why they did not like them. Much respect to you.

Also I agree with the Fender for possibly the best clean sound.
