Poor kid bought a $299 Line 6 75watt spider anda couple of months after the warranty ran out so it did the amps life. It is cutting out and sounding absoultely horrible. Doubt it's worth getting fixed. So looking for recommendations. He is a basement player no bands yet, plays a 7 string Fernandez tuned in drop D or Low C. Likes all the modern heay mental bands. Looking for less than $500 My intital thought was: Crate Power Block 150w ( I think they have a 5 year warranty) Low cost 1x12 cabinet (SS Cabs on eBay like $100) unloaded with a Celestion V30 or an Eminence ???? I can give him a Hellatone V30. I could give him a Boss SD1 pistortion pedal to start. What else will give that heavy mental sound cheap!
