    I am in the market for a high gain head. I am looking for something excessively smooth, like a tubescreamer but obviously with lots of gain and without the mid-range hump. I can spend about $1000-$1200. Unfortunately, where I live, all they sell is the typical Fender combos, Marshalls, and a...

Lately I have been having trouble trying to get a good blues sound out of my boss gt-pro with my yamaha A100a power amp and my Mesa cab, I am getting...

    So I'm looking to get a small (small like...10 watts) solid state (or tube but I know that can get pricey) amp to use with my POD. At home I have it set up with my favorite amp of all time for use with the pod, the Atomic Reactor, but for being up at school I just want something compact with a...

    Hi all - I need some amp advice. I currently have a vox ad15 and after 4 years with it, it's time for a change. Some background, i play only at home in an apt, looking for nice cleans and a 80's metal distorted tone. I don't like any of the other modelers out there. Looking at the following...

    Hi all - I want to pick up a small tube amp for my apartment as i grow weary of my vox ad15. I need it for cleans; i'll use a pedal for any of the heavier stuff. So i'm looking at the following in terms of new/available amps: Epiphone Valve Special Peavey Royal 8 On the used market, looking...

    I want an all-tube practice amp with the specs in the title, think you guys could make help me out? I tried the Laney LC15, wasn't impressed, not sure about the Laney VC15 though. Either way, I'm looking for more of an American sound, not a fan of British crunch tones. How does their Lionheart...

    FS – Fender Champ. This is one of the ‘Red Knob’ models. An all-valve combo with a 12” speaker. Now I won’t lie – the gain channel is pretty rubbish!! However, this amp’s strength lies with its clean channel. With my Les Paul through this, it is the most gorgeous sound I get from any of my...

They are one of the 2 popular tube amps made in Argentina as an affordable alternative to Mesa and the like. The one in the left has 4 6l6 and 5 12AX7 with a sound close to the one found in the...

    Hi guys, I am in the market for a new amp - I currently use a 5150 head with a 4x12 Marshall. My question is: What amplifier do you think sounds best with the Jem7vwh? A few thoughts so far - it is a relatively bright sounding guitar, so I thought that it may be complemented well by a darker...
