Yes. When I have enough money, that is the amp i'm going to get for bedroom use, small gigs, and possibly recording in around a year. The soundclips speak for themselves.

You should definately get the F-30 for playing bedroom, and small gig/recording levels. You heard the soundclips!

Sounds good to me - I've been GASing for one of those for a year now (finally getting closer). I've been weighing between an F-30 and an F-50, does anyone know the price difference and how much difference would an added 1x12 cab do volumewise?

You guys think that a DS-1 would help to get a better lead channel?

Re: Should i get a F-30 for a bedroom and some talent shows?

The TS9 and the DS1 are both very different animals - In my experience with the two of them the DS1 is more straight up, aggressive distortion, but also works well as a boost because you can set it to affect the signal very little. The TS9 is an overdrive which works to break up the sound and warm the tone. They both work well, but I prefer the TS9 because its a bit more flexible.

Also, Carlos, could you give us a quickie review of the F-30? I really want to hear what people think of it

I would seriously recommend that you put a tube mic pre before it. My behringer gear sounds like a 5150 because of it.
