The micro amps are extremely useful if you happen to like listening to bees buzzing away in an empty matchbox. :lol: I suggest that you get an 8" valvestate (VS15 or the like). It's the best in that price range when it comes to delivering decent distortion.

yes go for the valve state, i ahve a larger avt100 and its great with digital effects and all. But all together they are a smooth range of amps.

Depends, if you're looking for the amp you'll take to the grave....rob a bank. If you want a small practising combo you can take to jams a VS15 wouldn't be too bad but an AVT20 is probably *and I quote from the Marhsall magazine a la Jerry Horton [Papa Roach]* "The best sounding small combo I've heard" I've also got an AVT100 combo. The digital FX are surprisingly good for such a poor FX manufacturer and for bog standard amp attache to boot. But the fact that it has 10 different reverbs that sound almost the same at low-medium volumes is chaffing. Good solid range of amps though.

A hundred bucks won't buy you much, but if you like distortion, try the Fender 25R. If you want to get something that you can go full range with I recommend a Yamaha DS-60 with a Digitech RP-50 Modeling Processor. It's like having 5 different guitars and 12 different amps all in one. Trust me, you won't be sorry. 8) Plus it's totally programmable with 40 factory presets, from steel to space, this pup's got it!!!
