I gots a question guys!!!

I wasn't sure where else to ask this, but I play metal and I got a question about gear so I figured here would be the best place to get answers.

In regards to what I play, I play mainly thrash with some death thrown in there, on a 7 string, tuned to either A#/A.

I've decided to upgrade from my POD 2.0, since I simply cannot get a good recording tone from it. I had my sights set on a POD X3, since I can get one for like $250, and from watching videos of other people using it, it has great tone for recording. However, just as I was about to buy, I noticed the Line 6 pod HD desktop is about to come out. Now I've heard/read reviews that this is supposed to be somewhat as good as the Axe-Fx. Now, I'm deciding whether I should just stick with getting the X3, or wait for the HD to hit the stores.

Also, I'm looking for what I buy to last me for whatever situation may happen. I'll mainly just be using it for jamming/recording, but if I ever happen to have a gig, wouldn't I just be able to plug in which ever POD I get straight into the P.A. and it'll sound good?

Thanks for the help.
The POD HD Is really nice. I would wait for it. And try it out through a PA certainly, and make sure you know how to use cab simulators. That's what really helps the POD out is a good cab simulator.

which is better for metal :

1) Roland Cube 80x
2) Vox Valvetronix VT50
3) Peavey Vypyr 75

or any other suggestions ? (budget - 400-450$)

I live in India so very difficult to come buy used amps so buying new will be the preference.

Private use, or gigging?

Both but while gigging I will have PA systems at disposal so that's not a problem. And the major use will be while practicing/jamming.

They're all good, but I think the peavey will be more complex. Might also provide better flexibility for you though. You got a chance to try them out?

Well I'm not sure if I will get to try them out because right now I am planning to travel 500 miles to meet my uncle and aunt during holidays and that's the nearest city where guitar equipment is available. But if I don't get to go, then I'll have to order online and so won't be able to try out any.

Hey guys,

I've been playing guitar for about 10 months. As a beginner I got roped into buying a spider line 6 IV 15. I've put up with it for long enough, I hate it a lot. I'm heading off to university in the fall and looking to buy a new amp and guitar.

I play mostly death metal and melodeath I.E Quo vadis, dark tranquility, wintersun, ensiferum, wolfchant, neuraxis, in flames etc... However I also enjoy playing thrash (mostly the Big 4) and classic rock.

As far as the amp goes, my price range is $300-$400. I don't really know much about equipment. I'm looking for something that gives a nice distortion sound for the range of metal I like to play. IDK whether that means getting an amp + distortion pedal, or an amp that has distortion built in or w/e. It would preferrably be good for playing at low volumes in a dorm room but able to handle gigs decently as well.

As far as guitars go my price range is $600-$900 dollars. I am currently leaning towards an Ibanez XPT700, a Jackson KE3 Kelly or basically a higher end Jackson Dinky than what I have now. Of course I'd like something that's suited towards producing a shred/metal sound.

Thanks in advance for any help and if there's any extra information you need to help me out just let me know and I will be more than willing to oblige.

I wish, but the price-point is really non-negotiable for me at this point.

I appreciate your input however I am looking for gear that fits my description and price range, not advice on saving money.
#4373
Budget: Under £1000 english pounds :P
Location: The UK
New or used: New preferably
Gigging or no: Not currently, plan to record more than gig
the Bands that you play: Trivium...a lot of trivium :P


Currently have a line 6 spider III. I need a new guitar because my ageing epihones higher frets are soo worn that i am starting to get dudd notes.

I've been looking at the ec-1000 LTD. One thing i dont really like is a really thin neck (ie ibanez's) i love my traditional fat baseball bat on my epiphone, i can shred faster for longer on a fat neck, as my hand hurts after a shred on a thin neck

i also have a paul allender prs

I'm not sure if you would consider this one for the "metal guitar" list considering it doesn't come put together, but Warmoth Guitars may be another one. Just saying. . Oh and also Bernie Rico Jr. guitars. Love this thread.

Lol, don't fix what isn't broken man. This thread is awesome. And is in no need of repair. I thank you kindly for starting it too. Also, why'd you stop playing guitar?
