Equipment advice - Any suggestions?
Okay, here's the thing. I live in Japan and some of you may know, we live in small houses that are like snuggled up against one another. :biggrin: In other words, I can't crank up a 100W Marshall without having my next door neighbor throw a rock into my window!
My question is, what kind of equipment would you recommend to get a moderate sound for indoors playing. Something affordable would be greatly appreciated!
For my amp, I currently have a 40W Yamaha amp. The only reason why I use a Yamaha is because I got it free!
For effects, I recently bought a ZOOM 606 multi-effects processor because they are so cheap! (I got it for 7,900 yen new, which is about 60 bucks).
Here's the problem. The sound I get is too light. Although I can get a pretty good rhythm sound, the sound sucks when it comes to lead. Basically, all I'm getting is the sound of my pick and whatever tone I do hear is really thin. I tried different settings, but no hope. I'm sick of the thing already... I used to own a BOSS ME-10 about 10 years ago and that thing really rocked.
So, suggestions to replace the above are greatly appreciated! Should I replace the amp, the processor or both?
