    Any. Amps aren't designed for music "types" but a lot of factors would play into what you'd like to play through.:meh:

    I'm surprised this hasn't been moved to the "AMPS" forum already..

  8. What is the best computer?

    What is the best fake meat?

    What is the best rice noodle?

    What is the best amp?

    All of these questions have one answer:

    Try as many as you can, and then decide for yourself. You will get drastically different answers across the board if you ask the public. Some are Eden people, others Ampeg, Aguilar, Fender, Genz-Benz, Hartke, or Acoustic.

    Go to your local store, find something YOU like.
  9. What he said. Look for something with a 15" and plenty of push.

    Of course you can play any kind of music with any amp but I think this is pretty practical advice.

    I've heard reggae guys use anything from old Peavey amps to Edens and everything in between. It really doesn't matter as long as you like the tone.
