    I have a few different tube amps such as Mesa, Budda, and Fender. The other day my friend left a Randall RH200 solid state head at my house. I believe this is like a Dimebag Darrel model amp. I am not the biggest fan of metal, mainly just pop rock in my cover band, but this amp sounded really...

    I've been here there and everywhere when it comes to this stuff. I've owned a GT-8, a POD XT Live and two different V-Amps. I had the XT Live for less than a month because I didn't like the distorted tones at all. The GT-8 had a really funky sound to it for metal and rock (as well as neat...

    There are no right or wrong answers here! What do you think defines your sound? Given that maybe most professional guitarists are heard through their recorded output, is your recorded sound your real sound and your live sound just an approximation, or the other way round? In my case, anything I...

Hard Rock, Metal like Killswitch Engage, Atreyu, etc. and I like a little bit of metalcore like As Blood Runs Black. (like their sound)I want to find an amp that is versatile. Could be...

    Hi folks, I've had one of those Marshall Valvestate amps for a while now (VS265). It's 65 watt PER channel amp, going into 2x12 speakers. Surprisingly loud for its kind. It's been good for being on the budget, and for smaller gigs and practice. I only use the clean channel, and I feed Boss...

    Does anyone here play bass in addition to guitar? I have a bass and a bass pod I bought for recording but I am thinking about getting a bass amp. My first thought is to get a power amp and cab and use the bass pod as a pre amp, but maybe I should get a combo and just run the pod into it. I doubt...

    So after a long and ridiculous road trip today (drove into Boston specifically to go to the Guitar Ctr. in Boston, and got lost about 5 times so didn't make it till almost closing time), I was finally able to really quickly demo the Diezel Herbert. Now granted, this was with a POS beat up...

    Just wanted to ask if everyone here in the forum uses tube amps if you don't and use solid state let me know why and what manufacturer you are using. Was your decision based on tone, clean and drive channel or other. All information would be great. Armando

    So as I've posted in the classifieds section in search of a tube amp head, my Line 6 75W head just isn't cutting it for me and the rest of the band tonewise. So I'm desperately calling out for suggestions on what tube amp to get that's under $500, but fairly decent. Reliability is one of the...

    Hey all I was just on another board and someone came up with the idea to list every amp you have ever owned. I did as many as I could remember, which I think is all of them and I got bummed thinking about how much money I spent on different amps just to get rid of them for a different amp later...

    Why does Crate have such a bad rep? I have a 1994 Vintage Club 50w Head with a Crate 4x10 next to my Mesa Stiletto Deuce. I find myself using the Crate just as much as the Stiletto. The cleans are AMAZING, and I can dial in some really nice overdriven tones. It sounds fantastic. However, I have...

    Just curious to hear your opinions. I know nothing beats tubes, but for those of us without the budget or need for power, what is your favourite alternative? Line6, Behringer, Tubefusion, Transtube, Valvestate, and the others I forget... All variations included: FX units, direct recording...
