    As some of you'll know - im heading for the usa at the end of august for 4 years to complete my undergrad studies.

    im taking my rg with me, but im obviosuly not taking my amp - i will take my processor with me...

    now i dont want to spend too mcuh on a new amp but i want a decent one... im looking at spending around 100 dollars or so...

    i want to order soon.

    ive shortlisted to 3 amps - more suggestions are welcome - but id also like u to vote on which amp u suggest i buy..

    ull know i like most rock, metal, some blues, some jazz, so my requirements are such - a good quality speaker - even thoguh i doubt ill be using it at very high volumes, i want a nice qualtiy sound output...

    a nice clean tone - god im sick of my stranger......

    - a nice distortion (i ahve my processor with some really nice patches so this isnt top priority),

    - it should be good at both loud and soft voluems - as this will be the one im using in my dorm room and maybe even while jamming.... this is basically a practice amp - i dont really need chorus or any other effects on it... im just looking for nice so8und output...

    here are the 3 choices i have seen online:

    1. Marshall 15MGCDR - http://www.zzounds.com/item--MSHMG15CDR
    2. Fender Frontman II 25R - http://www.zzounds.com/item--FEN0231502000
    3. Behringer GX110 - http://www.zzounds.com/item--BEHGX110

    this is quite urgent....

    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!

    Also take a look at Brand-X amps. Despite the name, they are manufactured by Fender but at a slightly lower price. They are quite good. I own the 25R myself and am very satisfied with it. I purchased mine for $150 Canadian which should be around $120 USD.

    Look here: http://www.fender.com/products/otherbrands/

    The cheapest amp I know is one made by a friend and great guitar player in Kolkata - its called the ToneMeister. 20W and rocking clean tone at rS. 2,300 or so. amazing.

    If you can pay more go for a Roland Micro Cube at 7.5K its a killer with COSM amp simuation, multi effects and revereb, tremolo phaser, flanger, delay etc....and killer distortions...........theres no competition.
