Amp for practising

Looking for an amp for practising for elctric guitar (dsitortion) and electric acoustic. No need huge power but need nice sounding amp. any suggestion?

Will never record via this amp and no need of any effects. Iím playing via J-station and Pod2

No price range but would like to fit in 400$

I recently had my first amp -- a Marshall Lead 12 -- repaired. It's great for playing in front of the boob tube. Friends have a Fender Blues JR -- great little tube amp.

Tech21 Trademark 10

I got to test drive one on Saturday and It sounded great, got anything from jazzy clean to metal riffage out of it, all great quality sounds. Could use some more clean headroom and channel switching, but for a practice amp you can get some great low-volume tones out of it. They go for around $250 these days (not in Canada though )

If you just want to play through the POD/V-amp, i guess any cheap 30+ Watt amp with an FX loop will do...

I'd also consider a small full range setup, if you're using a POD for tone generation. Like a spot monitor, acoustic amp, or a keyboard amp. Roland & Yorkville have keyboard amps in the $250 range that would work well.

I'm always the "Marshall, Marshall, Marshall" guy but I have to say that the new Vox Valvetronix AD15VT or AD30VT look interesting for their size. They were shown at 2004 NAMM for the first time.

Something that might be worth a try is the Roland Cube amps. I tried a Cube15 and a Cube30 - I ended up getting the 30 as the 15 just sounded too er.. "boxy".
I also had the chance to get a secondhand Trademark10 for the same price but stupidly got distracted by the Cube's channel switching and effects and stuff.

I was just about to recommend that one too. The 30 is a great little amp, and you're spot on about the 15.
