    This is the amp that I use in my room. I think that these small amps are the best way to train your ear. Every guitar has its particular setting and in these small amps, as you have a few options, you can still get great tones

    I like small amps.
    And I use solid state amps, too, micro cube in my case.

    You wont get tube quality tone out of them. But they do produce all the stuff you need to
    learn, practice, understand.

    Just for sheer handiness I wont give up the micro cube, but really, it's quite toneful.. and over a pretty wide variety, too.

    And for the money, I think a decent solid state amp is something you may as well hang onto, too.

    But I still have to say... better ears will come from tube use!
    So let's say stage one learning.. nice small solid state is helpful, but there will come a time when you'll want some tubes!
