    I'm just getting into playing and I'm looking for the best combo amp for under $200. I realize that it's not a whole lot of money but I don't have a lot to begin with, after I learn to play and if I enjoy it and want to play more I will buy a better/bigger amp. I went to guitar center and looked at Fender, Behringer, GK, and Ampeg, and got a feel for what I could buy, but I want to know what real players would recommend, NOT a salesman that just wants to make a sale.
    Thanks in advance

    I have one of these. It can be had for $199 shipped (and is giving the footpedal for free right now). It's a kick a$$ combo LOTS of features and great bang for the buck. It's got good tone and is pretty loud too.

  3. I must recommend any Peavey combo, those are awesome and quite reliable and good for practicing. However, there is an Alesis combo on which you should take a look at. I'm going to order one soon for practicing so that I don't have to lug around a bigger combo and my FX unit. Edit: Looks like someone beat me to it! :p

    Old peavys are hard to beat TNT and TKOs are everywhere sound good and last forever..thats why they are everywhere cheap and last. I got an older TNT150 a week ago for $125.00 10-12 band eq chorus etc pots are a bit scratchy but i run it inline with a GK210 300 watter and man the best sound i have ever had for the $ i spent a great deal...look for one!
