Line6 SpiderII 112. Pros are that it's loud enough to gig out with, cons are that it sounds ****.

Looking to invest in a SpiderIII/FlexitoneIII as their versatility for the price simply CANNOT be matched by any other amp.

If I had more money though there would be no doubt in my mind as to which amp/cab I'd buy. Cornford. No question. In fact there's a Cornford 2x12 cab on eBay at the moment. For a cab with to Vintage 30's in, it's £300 which is a bargain.

But yeah, SpiderIII = good, SpiderII = BAD.

Peavey JSX, Cornford RK412

Very versatile, 3 channels (although I only use Clean and Chrunch), sounds generally awesome. The Cornford cab is of fantastic build quality and looks very boutique.

Cons, sometimes the tone can be slightly harsh, although that's mostly due to the guitar I use most of the time. I'd like something which sounds a little smoother, my next amp will hopefully be a Mesa F Series (or one of their successors that's just been released).

Laney LC30-II

Pros - clean as you like, very loud, likes my GT8.

Cons - overdrive channel is muffled and pretty horrible - noisy too.

same amp like as said the overdrive is rubbish

as I don't gig its rarely used as the acoustic is king :D

i run a boss gt8 into a peavey classic 50/50 tube poweramp - this poweramp is bloody amazing. Glad I managed to pick one up (very rare on eBay in the UK)!

It'll be a keeper... I may in future decide to upgrade to a rack preamp too but the GT8 does great at the moment for Pre-Amp sims....

I'll get a behringer virtualizer at some point for the rack and it also hosts my wireless receiver... will get some pics at some point!

Looks great

Lacking in bass (hello new 7 band eq pedal, why didn't I get one of these before?)
Poor overdrive sound

I have a VOX AC30. It's a great amp very loud and top quality tone.

Because it is a classic version it has sweet sweet tremlo! Of course you can push the gain a little and get some wonderful tones from it. :D

It was a little more expensive than the Chinese made AC30CC's, which are around at the moment but from the reviews I have read I am glad I got mine before they came out!

My only bad point is that it is so dam heavy!! Which is a common enough problem! heh But I am never going to try and carry that thing up another fire escape by myself again!!!

cheapy Marshal MG15DFX and a Epiphone Valve Junior

only really use the valve and as awesome as it is, it def has its cons. its awesomly simple :) but maybe a bit too simple. bedroom practise after certain times (late) is close to impossible without an earphone socket (wakin up parents), and when using low volumes you dont get much of the tubes natural overdrive. to semi-over come this problem i have a Marshal bluesbreaker II. gives a nice overdrive at lower volumes :)

Back at home I only have a 40watt Marshall Valvestate amp which was only £115.

Here at Uni I have my £20 PC speakers that my boss gt8 pedal is linked to and that my usa fender strat plays through, oh and I have onboard motherboard sound lol.

the right kind of pedal can really work well with a 900 - like you said the clean is great, but gain wise might need some persuading :) but this is entirely possible as there are some great od/dist pedals out there these days

I believe pedals are a sin. ;)
