Home amp for Schecter Banshee 6?
« on: November 27, 2019, 08:18:52 pm »
It looks as though I might be getting a Schecter Banshee 6 Extreme which is very exciting but I don’t have an amp as this is my first electric guitar. I just want something I can use at home for now because I’m a beginner and nobody needs to hear that at full blast. Any suggestions for something preferably under or near £100 which might work well in a block of flats (very thick walls, I am not a monster) ;)

Hi Jenette.
Welcome to the forum.
You want a small (ish) solid state amp with some built in effects, a headphone out and an aux in feature.
There have been many recommendation conversations in the forum before.
Honourable mentions are:

Blackstar ID:Core series amps 10w will be fine

Boss Katana Mini

Fender Mustang I version 2

Roland Cube 10

Aaah brilliant. Thank you so much. It’s all very confusing when you have no idea what you are doing.. I’m sure there are some great suggestions there. Sorry if the question seems repetitive, I didn’t want to buy it only to spot in the small print ‘NB Will not work with whichever specific model you have just tried to plug in’. Thanks again  :) :)

No probs.
From your opening sentence it sounds like the guitar will be a gift. Is that right? Have you chosen it? Has it already been bought?

It will be a gift. I have spent a few weeks researching and reading reviews and it seems to fit what i want. I’ve ordered one to try out in a couple of weeks. If I don’t like it or it isn’t comfortable I’ll think again.

I got the Banshee (not too heavy at all) and thanks to your advice I also got a Roland Cube. I’m very excited. It’s exciting 👍
