This weekend not only did I get a new amp, but also a new guitar. I had a Peavey Windsor half stack, and a cheap Ibanez, GSA-60 to be exact. So I got the idea to put these on craigslist and see how I could do... I got what I paid for the amp (400 USD), and $75 for the guitar. So I found a Crate V33H head with a Blackheart 1x12 cab, on Craigslist for $200. I was supposed to be getting a HSS Mexican Strat on Saturday for $350 with a hard case but the deal fell through, so I picked the same one up at the store new for $399, sadly with gig bag. Tone change is 100%, I am blown away, two channels, spring reverb, the sound is incredible. So anyway, how'd I do with my craigslist blitzkrieg? I'll post pics if someone tells me how to... I never understood this photobucket thing.

I really don't think you have every NAD beat, but HNAD. I got my amp this week too (Splawn Nitro).

I posted my pics on TinyPic. A lot easier to work with tbh.

So you sold your guitar and amp BEFORE you bought a new one? What would you have done if you couldn't afford a new guitar? Pretty stupid in my opinion.

EDIT: Just read your sig, Pics or you're lying.

No, sig is to spite all the people here who have more invested in their gear than I have invested in... well everything I own. And yes its true I don't have every NAD beat, with my amp alone, but I do beat every strictly NAD with the added purchase of a guitar. Also again, someone give me the easiest way to post pics and theyll be up in 5 min.

It comes in a head and a combo.

I was responding to someone (who I believe) has the combo/is selling the combo/tried the combo. The stock speakers in the combo and in the V212b are not very good at all, and they tend to get a bit nasty on the overdrive channel. I run my V33H through a Palomino 2x12 with Celestion 70/80's (not the best, but a far cry better than the stock Crate speakers).

My point was that the reason why people don't like the overdrive on the V33 is because of the stock speakers, and because they don't want to boost it, and because they don't know how to EQ (seems to be the case with most cheap amps, seeing as n00bs usually buy the cheap stuff).

FWIW, I am completely satisfied with my V33H, and if I wasn't such a fuzz freak, I'd be perfectly happy running it dry.
#23
Ya, I have the V-33H which is the head only.... Blackheart cab 1x12 as I said. And yes I have played with the OD quite a bit, pretty good IMO. I have a boss super overdrive which gives it a little more punch. But the cleans are definitely more impressive. Photobucket keeps freezing when I try to register... Ill try again later.

FOR THE LAST TIME MY SIG IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE TAKEN LITERALLY.... its sad that people dont pick up on the sarcasm, that rig seems perfectly logical to alot of you UGers.
