well today i went to my local music store to pick up a pack of stringers, luckily i glanced over at the plethora of used Marshalls, only to see an old Ampeg SS-140C. supposedly it has been in the back room for years, no one really wanted it since the death of old-school death metal, and the birth of metalcore

so, long story short, i ran home to grab my Ibanez Destroyer, played with it for a good half hour, and forked over the $250 that this 2x12 combo cost

it is probably the coolest amp i have ever played. "edgy" like a solid state amp, plenty of gain on tap, and still touch sensitive like many tube amps...actually, i am not used to an amp being so touch sensitive, it will tkae a little while to get used to

so yeah, long story short, i am now the proud owner of an old Ampeg

thank you UG, and goodnight

There is now lol

The hazing is you have to pick up said combo 100 times without a back brace

Dude, I'm not trying to get noticed; I have more views than you. It's called a joke. There, removed, but notice, my friend, two others said it. One even before me. I'm not trying to get noticed.

ok, sorry if i snapped at you. i just like the amp quite a lot, it works great for old school death metal (imo), and my roommate had an MG (he still loves that amp )
anyways yeah, i am enjoying the responsiveness of the eq, when compared to my Peavey Bandit. and the whole stereo thing is badass

ok, thats enough, time for this thread to die out forever i suppose

edit: wtf is a walrus?

You dont know what a Walrus is lol? H.N.A.D I hope you enjoy it. I played one the other day and I didnt like it at all and it wasnt nothing that you guys described. I believe something might have been wrong with it, all the pots were scratchy also.

Hey, I'm sorry too. Probably shouldn't have ever made the joke. When I have a NGD thread, I'll let you know, so you can randomly jump in and make fun of my gear like I did yours, saying stuff like, "It was probably made in a sweatshop in Germany, and the Neo-Nazis raped your guitar before you got to rape it, and now, you can't waste your guitar's virginity, like I know you planned to." Well, maybe that's a little overboard. But actually, I've never played on an Ampeg, so I'm actually jealous.

But now, the most important thing in this thread:

MG/MARSHALL = SUCK
