Im starting college in a jazz music program and I'll be performing infront of crowds..Im also in a metalcore band, and we're starting to gig regularly. Right now I've only got a cube 30 so I figured it's time to move up to maybe a stack..Im kindof a n0ob with amps so yeah any ideas that would be good for me and the 2 contrasting styles?

i would say vox ac30, really great cleans, i've played both the ac30 and the ac15(which i own) i love them both, and i play things like funk, blues, jazz, and reggae. the combo of the ac and your prs would be great.

I personally recommend Line 6 if you need good tone but don't want to deal with switching an amp. The Line 6 amps are modeling amps, and they use computer electronics to make every tone imaginable. Sure, they might not be tube driven, but they are good for the price and sound just fine with a nice guitar. I've used a Line 6 for quite a while and have never been disappointed, besides the fact that sometimes they can be a bit finicky to set up and work with.

If you really want a stack, Line 6 does make stacks, for example: the Line 6 HD150. I've used that before, and it's quite powerful. But my smaller 75 watt combo amp isn't a pushover either.

Good luck finding an amp.

You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.

I would say Fender Hot Rod Deluxe on clean channel for jazz, and Boss Metal Core or EHX Big Muff Pi in front of it for the METAL. Rock on, man.

The Vox AC30 would be a good choice, but if you're on a budget, then just get a Peavey Classic 30 and an Overdrive Pedal (TS9, OCD).

Speaking of Flextones, I have one on my CL for $275. What do I do?

Seeing as how the TS abandoned the thread, and our questions...

Yea, that's a good price. With the footboard?

I wonder if the TS has enough cash for one...
#16
With that budget you could take a look at a Mesa single rectifier…my dual has awesome cleans and it can do metalcore without a pedal
#17
Alright sweet. Are mesas hard to find though? I cant seem to find any in the stores near where I live (Montreal area), and they also arent listed on musician's friend... the mesa boogie site is somewhat confusing too and their arent any prices..

Classic 30 and an Overdrive pedal is a great choice.
