Are you having troubles finding the perfect vintage 1980's tone within your price range? Maybe you have the money but just need the advice. This thread is for all you people stuck in the 80's and want to relive the sound.

If you need help...

Vox Valvetronix VT100 ($650)

Peavey Windsor 120 Watt Tube Head ($400)

I love the 80s

I have a vintage Boss CE-3 that gets the 80s chorus tone down really well. Kind of sterile and a little swirly, but charming and great for the 80s type chorus.

What sorta 80s sound? Cuz there's early 80s new wave, late 80s alternative, hair metal, thrash metal and hardcore punk.
No gods, no countries, no masters.
More guitar, less Ultimate-Guitar.
Be Serious.
Shorties represent!
Ibanez SZ520/Ibanez ORM-1/Ibanez RG7321/Pocket POD/Crate GX/Boss HM-2

Somewhere in a concert hall in Sweden, you have just caused Yngwie Malmsteen physical pain. You also caused him to catch on fire.

Oh, figures. So will this thread be left open, or is it fruit from a forbidden tree?
