    Yet another recommend me an amp type thread. I swore I wouldn't do this but I've been around a couple music stores and they all seem heavy on the modelling types and light on what I'm looking for. I want an all-tube 1x12 combo amp that will give me nice Fender cleans to modern hi-gain...

    Thanks to a deadbeat seller on craigslist I'm now GASing for a 50ish watt tube amp that produces bright, articulate cleans. My current practice amp is a solid state Crate RFX30, which does the job, but I need something a step or two up for around $500 or so. After some research, and knowing...

    Why is it that everyone is always stomping on the Quality of Crate amps...... Have they spent time with one in the last 10 yrs???? Do they realize that for 7 yrs running Crate was the most sold amp in the World....not USA "WORLD". I just don't get it............every model they make isn't GREAT...

    Having gone through (bedroom amps we're talking here): Marshall mini-stack Vox Valvetronix Line 6 Spider's (15w & 30w) I'm still trying to find something I'm truly happy with at bedroom levels. The Marshall has a really nice clean sound, not sparkling like I'd want, but still a nice clean...

    I've come to the conclusion that 65watts is sufficient when playing with a drummer alone. How 65watts would work out with another guitarist, a bassist, and possibly a keyboardist is beyond me; It's really just my drummer friend and I practicing and messing around. My drummer friend sticks to...

    Zachary guitars has gotten into the pedal and amp business, and business looks good! Think what you want about the guitars, The design and philosophy behind these amps and pedal is undeniably cool. The only question is, do you really want to hear what your playing actually sounds like? Playing...

    I have a Crate V32 and an Engl E530 I would like to sell or trade LOCALLY. I really do not want to ship these as I have no faith in my packing abilities. The Engl preamp is in perfect working order with some minor rack rash. The Crate V32 works flawlessly. The tolex has almost no blemishes...

    I have lost interest in this one, although it is very cool, plays and sounds great. The only things that I have changed: added a washer to the kill switch and swapped the original wood knobs for the black metal knobs. I have the original wood knobs, which will be included with the guitar and...

    Howdy guys. Once upon a time I had a Ampeg Vl503 combo, well sold it a long time ago and now regretting it. So I'm searching for a good 2 channel combo, that can do a good punchy clean, and a decent crunch with good gain on the second channel. Are there any amps on the market that does this...

    was just going thru a guitar world and seen a mini JSX its supposed to be a recording amp(low wattage) and it has of all things tremolo on it.. Looks like a 1x10 Just went to peavey and there is no info on it there.. Probably a NAMM piece.

    Seems to me that there is not much need for the 100-120watt monster tube amps with half stacks anymore.( At least for the local muscian) With PA or POD like gear, at every venue it seems over kill to have 200lbs of gear when you can run a 1x12 combo into a PA and sound just as good. I have a...

    Standard Strat MIM. Great condition(9/10), virtually zero fretwear. A little bit of rust on a few of the pickguard screws. Two minor blemishes. One thin scratch on the surface(not through the clear) roughly 1 inch long on the upper horn and a small "ding" in the clear coat under the tone...

    Can anybody list off a few half stack combos for under $800? I've been reading some Harmony-Central reviews and they've totally been bashing on Marshall and Randall, etc. I know Bogner and Mesa are excellent amps, but finding a head and a cabinet package for even under $1500 is a real steal...

    Hey guys... I need your help. I'm a metal player. I play Pantera, Metallica, Zakk Wylde stuff, Anthrax and stuff by Guns N' Roses and Steve Vai, Satch etc... I need lots of distortion, and I know that the Mesa Boogie Dual Recto is the perfect choice for me. Or an ENGL, but I prefer the Mesa...

    Hi all! I am currently an electrician\instrumentation apprentice at a copper mine in Arizona. Last week, our instructor asked all of the class to come up with an electical\electronics project for his class. The main catch with the project is that he gets to keep it after we are done with it...

    Yes. I've just recieved my profit share from work which means i have a thousand pounds to spend on a new amp. I sing and play rythm and lead for a blues/rock band, i suppose you could say we sound a bit like zep mixed with the black keys , hendrix etc. I've been using this 15 watt marshall for...
