Looking at getting my daughter a small combo amp so she can practice "anytime" in her bedroom. It doesn't have to be new (although I'd prefer something NIB), it just has to sound "good" at lower volumes, be pretty sturdy, and have a headphone jack. I'd like to keep it around $50 - $60 (less expensive is OK too), but could go up to about $80, if there's a "big bang for your buck" item in that range.
So far, I've seen (all used) Spider IV 15W, Peavy Audition/Backstage & Pignose PG-10/Hog 20/Hog 30 that seem to fit the bill. I've also seen a ton of various Crate models, but I have no idea what's good. Finally, for some reason, the Danelectro Hodads seem appealing.
The Spiders seem nice, because she'll have a few effects, that I think will be decent enough, and the Hog's have a big appeal because they contain rechargeable batteries that will charge even while playing plugged in.
I know she'll be happy with pretty much anything, but I guess I'm looking for something that I wouldn't mind borrowing as a "standard"
EDIT: What about Peavy Vypyrs and Vox AD15VTs?
I don't know if you can find one quite that cheap, but I've been nothing but pleased with my Roland MicroCube. It sounds fantastic and is very versatile. It can run on batteries or standard 9v pedal power plug, and has a line in and line out. I usually see them used in the 70-90 range, but you might be able to find one cheaper or talk someone down.
