way overpriced, didn't sound that good at high gain, bought it mainly because of the PGS hype and genuinely thought that it was the be-all and end-all of overdrives. plus i was sold by the paint job.

Mostly some of the real high end gear I have bought...

My ENGL Steve Morse which has made every amp since obsolete and means until I get another ENGL SM I will always hate my tone.

A few guitars, my old J Custom and Ernie Ball jp6 which did a similar thing to a lot of guitars that followed them.

Lastly? Biggest regret was my Gold Top. I loved that guitar but when I lost my job t sort of came to symbolise the whole farce and I hated to play it after that.

Regrets because the gear sucked? Defo my stupidly expensive Rebel Yell pickups. Useless hateful things.

That's the first time I've ever heard that - I've heard that many tube amps can be finicky with pedals, but decent solid state amps (as long as they aren't crappy 5 watt starter amps) are generally good pedal platforms. I mentioned owning a Peavey Special 112 earlier in this thread, and that 160-watt monster loved having the guitar feeding into an overdrive, which in turn fed into a Big Muff, which then fed into the amp. Loved that combo.

Another regret - breaking the neck of my first Epi LP.

I only regret selling one thing, my Tremoverb. It hurts me to this day.

Pedals worked just fine on every SS amp I have owned.

i don't know how to say this any other way, but that is BS. it is attractive BS that shrouds itself in popular opinion, but BS nonetheless.

then immediately forget it.

on topic. when i first started i sunk all my cash in a marshall VS, great learning experience cuz i never did such a dumb thing again. only other real regret since then has been getting a redwitch Fuzz God II, great sounding pedal but the damn thing keeps failing on me.

incorrect. the tubescreamer was originally designed to simulate a cranked tube amp on a solid-state amp. it was a happy coincidence that it just so happened to literally push the tubes of a tube amp into saturation.

I double dipped in regret and replaced my Marshall MG10 with a Line 6 Spyder III 30w which iv been stuck with since. Finally getting a chance to replace it in the coming months.

One thing I don't regret is buying my Epiphone SG Special II when they were sold out of the lp version. If I had gotten the one I intended I might have been turned off of buying my Epi LP Standard a year later, and that guitar kept me playing for 7 years.

I don't really regret much, I also see all of my as having a purpose. I regret getting an Epiphone SG special, rotten guitar. I kind of regret selling my Krank Chadwick, more so because the guy that bought it blew it up that amp was pretty sweet.

I don't have any regretful purchases necessarily, but selling my Laney VH100R with the matching cab for a measly $1000 is my biggest regret.

wow somebody else has one... lol. i never hear them mentioned. they are decent, but nothing special. the dirty channel can sound pretty decent with a timmy and a little lower on the treble and with the mid knob pulled out on the amp which gives it an upper mid shift. they aren't really that great but they get the job done. traded a line 6 douverb straight up. the duoverb sucked. they really need

I don't regret anything really. I guess I regret buying a Bugera 333, even though it sounded fantastic, it spent more time being repaired than it did being in my possession. Then when I got the store credit for returning it, I picked up a Blackstar HT-40 since it was the best amp I could afford at the time from that store. It was OK but I wish I'd waited a bit and picked up something better.

I regret selling my HT-1 though. Fun little amp.

I regret trying to sell my friends Spider III 75W to another friend of mine. Not because I hate the Spider, but because the Vypyr 75W + Sanpera II he ended up getting are so much better.
