Any tips? I just signed on for a group lesson session as part of the private tutoring. He says "bring an electric". I'll bring the Strat, but only have big tube amps that don't easily venture out.

I'd appreciate some direction from anyone that might jump in.

Thanks

Roland Micro Cube or Cube 15 would be perfect.
Ditto, I love my micro cube... heck, the batteries last so long I have stopped using the wall wart! Simple amp, easy to carry (I pulled the stock handle off mine and use a guitar strap to carry it), sounds good, great build quality...

The Microcube is quite good. I'd also recommend the almighty Pignose 7-100. You can probably find a decent used one for very little money in the San Francisco area.

Usually, when a teacher says, "bring an electric" it's either because he is supplying amps, or he wants you unplugged and quiet. Maybe ask.

Right, Dave.

He said, "Bring a practice amp". I wanted to bring an acoustic so I ran down the options...He said, "Bring the Strat and a practice amp".

Thanks.

Got it. Roland Micro Cube or anything else small, clean and non-distorted would get my vote for a learning setting.

Kustom KGA 16. Light - 15 watts clean and overdrive channel and the price point is around $100 or less. They used to come with a 3 year warranty. The clean channel sounds really good. Headphone jack too.

I like the Peavey Transtube Rage or Blazer 158. Very light, sounds great, can be had used for cheaper than a modeling amp, and very reliable.

What kind of tone do you want? What's your budget? My little SF Vibro Champ has great tone, and at 6 watts, can get quite loud if you tell it to.
