I recommend a Line 6 Spider IV 15 watt as a beginner.

Best,

Livingstone.. that's a budget solid state isn't it?

Best to run it clean - ie don't turn the gain up. If you wanna get some dirt on there then an OD or distortion pedal will be better than overdriving the amp. EQ it to taste - the best way to work out how to set an amp is to plug into it, twiddle the knobs and see how it sounds.

Hey there :) Please enjoy my guitar blog :)
