Why weren't these out when I first started playing??
I just got back from the local guitar shop and tried a little 15 watt Line 6 Spider II amp, sweet Jesus this thing rocked.
I took one of my guitars into the shop (PGM301) and nailed Gilbert's tone at bedroom levels almost as soon as I plugged it in! I figured something slightly different out so I didn't sound like a complete wannabe and was really REALLY impressed with the versatility, and the crazy amounts of gain!. Cool to have some effects on it too. In fact, the only thing I'd change on it would be that it should have a footsitch of some kind.
Now, I've spent (and wasted) hundreds and hundreds of £££'s on different amps trying to get awesome tone at bedroom levels and now I've nailed it. I just can't believe how awesome it sounds, and get this, the speaker is 8 INCHES. I just sort of wanted to post this so that anyone on a budget that likes to play at home can pick one up. It cost me £120 and I'm sure you can pick 'em up cheaper online. So, bedroom tone-freaks, pick one up!!
