Ok I have done my research and I have found an amps. Will this amps really improve my tone compared to my crte ca 15 amp. My crate has a beautiful clean sound and I love it but I need a louder amp. It would be for jamming with friends.

B 52 at 112: it's a tube amp but the reviews I've read says it is extremelay unreliable. I think it will make my tone so much warmer. For $340 new seems like a good deal. I don't care about the distortion on it because I have pedals. It's definiatley loud enough.

Has anyone played this amp and has any feedback on it. The reviews on harmony central gave it a 10 for sound but a 3 for reliability. I would also be using this amp in my basement allot for practicing and jamming.

Pedals over tube distortion?...
It sounds good for the price, but I've seen a lot of them go down and break

I would use the amp distortion iff it was better but I still got two distortion pedals just incase.

What distortions do you have? And they better not be Boss, Digitech, Behringer or Danelectro.

As for the swim team member that drowned, it just means the swim team just got a lot better. Same with him too, it's time to move on, the weakest link is gone...

Christ, that's a bit elitist isn't it?
I've worked my way through tons of pedals, recently including a Mesa Bottle Rocket and a Crowther Audio Hot Cake (top notch pedal btw) and on my pedalboard I currently have a Digitech Bad Monkey and a Boss DS-1. I've used a few Behringer overdrives and they were all decent enough for the price (except the valve-driven one).

Crank your amp to 11 and slash your speaker cones, and scoop your mids a bit, then you'll have an amp that sounds like a Big Muff.

By the way, don't really do this.

I was debating this amp as well as I have heard good things, ultimately I went with the Randall RG50TC (paid $450) which has great distortion sans pedal.
