I have one of those it's an okay amp I plug it into a Sear Silver tone vintage cab and it sounds pretty good I can keep up with my friends marshall. If you can save up more get a tube amp of some sort they are better.

I use a dimarzio Ds-1 to boost the sound and i use a DOD super sterio chorus pedal to make leads cut through and my guitar is a Ibanez 350dx with Evos

A tube Line6? Where?

I have a Bandit, there pretty good amps really. It can do anything you want it to, and loud, but the tone is worse than a tube amp.

I would advice against a Bandit, I don't think the drive channel is veru usable for anything besides thrash metal or something of that sort. But you already made the right decision, good on you!

I never played a Laney, but from what I see they are the best priced tube amps you can get, and they seem to get good rviews. I say it's a good choice.

El problema es que tendria que esperar un ano mas para que pueda comprar un amplificador bueno, porque el dinero que tengo es de Navidad y mi cumpleanos (Feb 3) entonces tendria que esperar para que termine el anio escolar (Junio 27) para tener un trabajo y tendria mas dinero en Octubre de el proximo anio.... Y ya quiero un ampli!!! el que tengo es una mierda!

I just tried an LC 30 yesterday, pretty much the same as the 50 except 30 watts.

Anyhow, I had to play at low volumes, and it probably didnt sound so good because it wasnt cranked, but the distortion wasnt too high gain, it was hard rock at most. The cleans were good though, and it got a nice bluesy tone, as well as a classic crunch.

I am not to worried about the gain, i will be using a DS-1.
