Find him a Line 6 Pod XT "bean." And a decent set of headphones.Not me, fortunately. A colleague at work has rediscovered his love for guitar and has been looking for an amp. Unfortunately for him, recent bills have wiped out his budget. I'm just wondering what options does he have for bedroom playing? He has no laptop/PC as that was my first thought.
Are there any decent practice amps? Or even headphone amps? Relatively high gain rock & metal stuff, but nothing too extreme. Budget I'd say less than $100. Happy to look at used items, would a Boss Katana be in budget/worth looking into?
Fly 3 is surprisingly good for what it is. The drive channel is more classic rock and maybe some hair metal but I could drive it harder into Metallica gain levels by boosting it with a pedal and a humbucker.go to a pawn shop and get a small practice combo amp
otherwise maybe an iRig if he has an iPhone
keep in mind some smaller amps won't have great high gain tones so he might also need a pedal to supplement, so that adds to the cost
I will say that I've had tiny Fender amps that have decent distortion before, and my tiny Blackstar FLY3 is good enough for my workbench
