versatile amp

  1. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    I already post a thread about this, but after trying and reading, some changes have been made. I found out that I can get used amps much cheaper, so what could you recommend? I look for a versatile amp with good cleans and good high gain channels. 2 or more channels. If possible at least 2...

    1. I'm thinking of trading/selling my Mesa Boogie for a Hughes & Kettner Trilogy/Triamp. Is it worth it and what would be a reasonable price to let the M/B Trident Stiletto (Series 1) go? I bought it for $1700, but the Bay is listing it for $1000 last I checked. 2. Is it possible to plug into...

    Alright folks. It was between either Engl and Mesa, and I've decided on Mesa because of the lead tone (I'm a lead player). I don't think anything can beat a Boogie for lead tone =) Now, the problem is that there are so many options that I have no friggin' clue as to what to get. My options are...

    Hey guys, I'm swapping out the dimarzio/ibz pickup in my RG321F Prestige, and I wanted to see what you all recommended. I play a lot of paul gilbert and joe satriani stuff and the Guitar that I have is made of Mahogany. Not afraid of Medium output Dimarzio's because my XXX will be able to boost...

    Hi i'm gonna order a customized/personalized tube amp soon, the maker is asking me what type of amp do i want to "COPY" and i said i don't know anything about tube amps but i want a clean sounding amp for versatility(he recommends the Fender twin). Now after reading some forums, some say that...

    ....and the insurance will pay for; A guitar An Amp and A cable. Nothing else. You have to gig with that, and that's it. What do you get?

    I'm looking for a good, solid, reliable, and most importantly, both good-sounding and versatile amp, and I've narrowed it down to these two. Anyone have any experience with these, or have any other suggestions? These amps will mainly be used for jazz (hence the solid state) but I need tube...

    A lot of people like to slag off on this amp for leads, but, well... Dialed in right (and full disclosure here, the EQ is VERY unintuitive), they sound absolutely great for lead. I'll post my settings up in a day or two so you don't come into this with any preconceptions, but this is my PWH...

    Hello Jemsite, I'm hoping some one here could help me with this delema.... and it's G.A.S These are different beasts thats for sure. I'm just looking for the one to cover the most ground for $2-3k. Studio sessions // live environments I've thought about the Mark IV ...it's just not for me...

    Grabbed a cheap Schecter, a cable and spent an hour plugging into just about everything at GC and was disappointed at it all. Gave the JSX another try, liked it, but still wasn't ready to get another one, for the reasons I traded mine away. Couldn't get a fat warm 'just slighty' gainy tone...

    Ok, So the gentleman who I was going to buy a JSX from decided to keep it...and thats a bummer, as I was looking forward to it. However, after combing the area today, I have found 2 amps that I will probably have to buy just from pictures, as the sellers have both agreed to meet me halfway, so...

    Alright ive been debating over the Supersonic and F-50 for the last couple of weeks on other forums and such and still don't know which one to get....but now i have heard some clips of the JSX and really like that also just making things harder... It all started when i heard the Supersonic at...

    Hey Jemsite, I got one more show off thread before i hang my hat for the week. Yes, that's right - i'm hinting that i might be showing off some more later, but that's of little important. Ever since i joined jemsite, i've taken what used to be a simple obsession with the Jem 7vwh and...

    Well I got bored and my pal at the local store got a switchblade. So I thought I run over with my JEM and try it for a bit, since during the holidays the store is dead anyways ;) Features: Ok this baby is packed with features. 4 Channels and built in effects (Reverb, Delay, Modulation - Flanger...

    OK, My first guitar gene splicing experiment in preparation for my ultimate R540 Radius experiment... Basswood body RG550/570 of '87 or so vintage. It is ambiguous because it has a rosewood wizard neck with dot inlays, but doesn't seem to match any 570 I ever saw or heard of, so I think it's a...

    I have a Flextone III 1x12 combo, and it's cool, ...but I guess I just want to find out what a tube amp is all about. The curiosity is just killing me so I want to get myself a good tube amp on a budget and, well, see if I can tell the difference, see what all the hype is about, see if I've...
