Buying a Blackstar HT-Dist X. It was used, cheap and I could probably get my money back on it, but it's not as versatile as it seemed and doesn't have a particularly tight or modern sound. Fine for Sabbath riffs, but it's been sitting there gathering dust since I bought my Eleven rack a month or so later.

I regret not really looking at this HSS strat when looking at my strat. It was a dark red, rosewood fretboard HSS strat and I swear it had a nice neck, but I was so caught up on getting a 3 tone sunburst strat that was SSS (I considered them to be much better looking than HSS strats) and basically didn't bother with it.


I also regret getting my Egnater new. It's a great amp, but I would've liked to have saved a few hundred bucks.

+1 In fact, the values varied enough on those tubescreamers that its possible for one to not reach unity gain. Those particular instances would not push the tubes much, if at all. It would still likely sound louder due to the mid hump.

Sold it to a mate & he's still happy with it today - still working as a reliable practice amp even though it's over 15 years old.

The purchase I've always regretted was my old Fender MIA Stratocaster. Spent a load of money on it thinking I'd be getting something awesome, whereas I actually found it to be extremely bland and no better than average at everything. It just gathered a load of dust while I stuck with my trusty Telecaster & Les Paul, eventually sold it & was glad to see the back of it.

I agree and can relate to absolutely everything posted here.

Fair enough, I guess it's something to do with the modelling on the spider then as it sounded like a piece of shit that had been eaten and then shat out again but now on my ac30 it sounds glorious.

A spider is representative of all SS and modeling amps out there? Not at all. The 20 year old crate SS amp I got for 50 bucks says otherwise.

The g40c is a great amp. I loved the one I had in college.

I used a SS Yamaha g100-212 as my gigging amp for many years, it worked fine. You can't judge SS amps based on a Spider - spiders are shit.

There is a similar thread over at Rig-Talk right now.

Guess what kinds of amps are on that list?

Bogners. VHTs. Mesa Marks. Splawns. Axe Fx'. Cameron. etc.

cleans are pretty nice. not as nice as the musicman i picked up or my '68 bassman, or any twin, but they get the job done. very OD friendly. reverb is great as well. foot switch has lots of options, but the guy i got it from never had it. i havnn't looked really that much but when i did they sure didn't seem to pop up.

I read it the same way, and I was thinking "What a douche bag..."

After re-reading it, it makes sense.
