    I originally said micro cube because you said cheap, but if you're willing to spring the yammy THR is in another league

      I love my THR5 for what it is. A desktop AMP.



      I am going to be looking for a starter amp for my daughter next year and would choose the Mustang I or the Vox VT20+. If she is into technology, like a lot of kids are, the Mustang would be a good choice, plus it has a lot of good stock tones.

        Another vote for the Roland Cube 15x if on a budget and the Yamaha THR10 if more funds are available. Both have built in tuners, aux inputs, and effects. The Yamaha has amazing tone a low volume levels in a very small package. It's the ultimate practice/bedroom/portable amp.

          An inexpensive amp that's used, but in like-new condition.

            4 choices : a vox pathfinder 15R (Great amp!), one of the 15 watt - Line6 (there not as bad as you think!), Roland MicroCube (again not bad for the money etc) and a one of 15 watt little marshalls (they sound good). Gives you enough choice, all have a wide range of sounds, head phone jacks and can be made to sound great at LOW VOLUMES!!

              I agree with the Pathfinder suggestion. Relatively simple, very unfussy to tweak, but a lot of useful bells and whistles and some flexibility for a beginner's amp. Wish I had one as my first amp.



              Another idea, a bit more pricey: ZT Junior. Dead simple. Not as flexible in sounds but if it's like the full-sized Lunchbox you have to really try to get a really bad sound. Current promo pack includes a carry case, battery pack, and pedal-powering daisy chain for $180. Good for portability and if pedals are a certainty.

                  Good deals with - Yarbicus, CBH5150, BozzofAngels, Alvin Wilson, Harris Quinn

                  Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.

                    Really not a bad idea...better idea as a supplement to the pathfinder if that's what he ends up with.

                        I'm not a beginner and I still get bored at times and break out the fx pedals. I'll say the Mustang or something similar with at least some fx or features. I also have to mention the Vox amplug (I have the AC-30), it's the best headphone amp I have ever used and is well worth the price.

                          Mustang II by a mile. Set it up for her with some classsic amp tones and shes good to go.. Never grow out of it.

                              The Vox and Mustang 1 are both good for the reasons stated.

                              I'm not much of the fan of the micro cube but the 20w and even more so the bigger ones are fine amps. Love the JC clean muself Decent tube OD emulations, chorus, reverb.

                              Not as many sounds as the Mustang series but simple to operate. Looper on the big one is a nice feature.

                              Also I was impressed when I played thru an little Orange Crush 20, sounded great to me with a little of its own character. 8" speaker, aux in and headphone out, tho I didn't use em.
