Excellent line of amps. I have the Tweaker 88 myself and love it - it made more than one of my dirt pedals obsolete.

If you look around you can find the Tweaker 40 or 15 for under the budget your looking for. I got my 88 with a legacy 2x12 for around 500 used. Still the best purchase I've made gear wise.

Re: The Jemsite guide to amps

I think you did well just getting started. where to start! Solid state or tube? Line 6 do digital well, but its still sounds sterile. Self biasing tubes cut service costs but you may outlay 3 to 5k for this option. If you club gig,then a combo. If you dont have a van then that 4x12 may get you kicked out of the band. Leaving a band mate for the next trip just cements the selfish "look at me" tag we wear. If your a rocker needing monster gain or distortion look for a built in variac. Or just take a floor processor and plug into the desk.

The essential thing for me is, as I said, versatility. It must have decent clean and overdrive, it must be able to sound vintage and modern as well (don't get me wrong, I don't expect it to be Fender Deluxe Tweed and Mesa Boogie combined in one for this price).
Bands I like are: Hendrix, Oasis, Funkadelic, Steve Vai, RHCP.
Actually I owe a Fender American Standard Stratocaster, looking forward to buy an old RG/Jem.
Any ideas?

Re: The Jemsite guide to amps

May I add Brunetti amps (http://www.brunetti.it/index_en.php ?)Made in Italy, used by Kiko Loureiro for a while, now used by David Kilminster (Roger Waters - The Wall tour) and Guthrie Govan for his 2011 Italian tour.
2-3 weeks ago Kee Marcello went to the factory and chosed a Mercury 100w head (https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net...12677553_n.jpg).
Only tube amps and preamps: from the tiny combos Metropolitan & Maranello to the very high end heads Mercury and Mark.
Listen to the samples, you'll be pleased.

Re: The Jemsite guide to amps

Nice idea Orange. It would take some extra searching, but it *might* be a good idea to include links to popular threads about the amps. Like a few good ones out of the thousands of "should I buy a Legacy?" or "how does a Triaxis sound?" thre

Re: The Jemsite guide to amps

Any chance of getting a listing of preferred pre-amps (rack mount variety)?

Re: The Jemsite guide to amps

cool.
since my post I was able to buy a very used 2x12 Mesa upright slant 1/2 back cab.
...the one with the 80 lb grill....lol
I'm just happy to now have a 2x12 cab.
and the fact that the Mesa is bigger than any other that I've seen
makes it.....well......just damn cool I guess...and my Mark IV sits perfectly on top.

Re: The Jemsite guide to amps

My 2 cents. I've got a 5150 combo with Marshal celestions and upgraded tubes. It sounds awesome. I hate the heads cause they're biased so cold. But the combo sounds great and can be picked up at a great price.

Re: The Jemsite guide to amps

Hi All!
Does anyone have any experience with Mesa Boogie Mark IV & Bogner 2x12 oversized cab?
I'm thinking of buying one. I have the Boogie & the original 4x12 cab (heavy as hell)
but would like to get a 2x12 for the smaller gigs.
Also, I got an email that I was going to be 86'd from the site for non activity....
I certainly don't want that!
I've been busy playing my new Ibanez SR600 Bass with my new punk band & haven't had the time to visit.
Seriously though about the Bogner. I found one on a site which I can't mention here for
$550. including shipping.
what do y'all think?

mmm..I play through a line 6 now, used to use a marshall...loving the sound of this

UPDATE: I now run the line 6 (which is a 200w flextone II head) through the Marshall, a 1973 50w head, and it sounds amazing!! I get the bells and whisles of the line 6 with the tone of the marshall..I'm in tone heaven
