I have a fender frontman 15g

Tis crappy - good if you like clean

And I want to get a line 6 flextone III

So how can I convince them? ( what should I say)

Tell em you'd rape them if they don't...


But seriously, Just tell you NEED a new one since the old one is almost broken or something, Or tell em what i did, Just say your guitar teacher or something says you need a new one with a better distortion, so that you can practice better... That worked with me.

Dude, I think I would know, Trivium invented Thrash, Metallica are lucky they got as far as they did piggy-backing off of Trivium's signature style.

could always ask for it early because you really want/need it and bargain it for an early birthday or christmas present or say you'll give them the money back when you get it saved up??
#7
or just prove to themm with your skills (iono what level youre at) and be like. now can i haz new amp? its just that this reminds me of john frusciante having to learn a whole album so he could get his first good guitar.

Just tell them your old one is deteriorating slowly and it's on the brink of a breakdown. If that doesn't work, nothing will xD

my parents wouldnt buy me a new amp if it broke, atleast ofor a long time, so id go with tellin them you need a new one to further your playing, or play them the hardest song you know to prove they wont be wasting their money

tell them shit tone ruins your inspiration to learn and practice. so therefore you play like shit. thats how it is with me. hey, i know a good guitarist can play on any amp and guitar, but i'm not a good guitarist. and i blame it on my 15 watt jumpstart ibanez.

if it's your money, why do you have to ask your parents? even if u need to use their credit card, tell them you'll pay them back.

Mess with some of the wires and then tell your parents it just stopped working for reasons unknown to you.

When I got a new amp, they fronted the money and I paid them back for it. - but we had an outdoor show so i needed some better wattage from the amp that the old one I had.

I bet that if you said: "Hey mum and dad, I've saved up some money. I'm gonna buy a new amp" they would have no problems with it.

say "mum, dad, I need a new amp, I have half the money, could you put the other half towards it, and I will pay it back, do shit loads of chores"
#33
kick your amp in

or open it up, tinker around with the speaker cords, disconnect the speaker. N tell your parents your amp doesnt work, that it'll turn on but theres no sound
that way if they fully refuse, u can jus re-connect the speaker lol

note: soldering iron and skills may be needed

It's one of the rules of the Pit- "Line 6 spider= suck". Although very few of us have actually tried them. Those who have have their opinions. There are actually some Pit monkeys who have tried and liked the amp. Go to a shop and try one out for yourself.

"Hey mom and dad, can I buy a new amp?"

"Sure, as long as we're not paying for it"

"Okay, thanks"
