Hi, I have a new Ibanez SA-120 guitar and now i need to buy an amp for it. Can you please suggest the better amp for this guitar. I intend to play mainly Rock and Metal.

those are both crap.

The Roland Cube, Vox Valvetronix and Peavey Vypyr range of amps is what you should be looking at.
Actually called Mark!

I can buy NEW amps of these companies: FENDER, IBANEZ and HARTKE. Fender and Ibanez have amps that fit my budget. HARTKE is too expensive.

Thanks.

Israel?! Guess I can't go on Craigslist.

255 dollars? Can you go used? Neither of those amps will do what you want.

They are not good enough for a beginner?

It's just that they suck. Ibanez amps IMO really suck.

Your options are really limited. Some Fender's can do rock, but they can't do metal without a boost.

Go used and you might find more options.

Well they would get the job done for you but they sound terrible.

We are just trying to help you get started with good tone

tone is in the ear, not the amp

you can tweak a frontman and get some decent tones...but then again why would you

get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.

you can't.


a fender frontman25r will not do metal. it just wont.

it's not made for it.

you can add a pedal in front, if you have to go that way, but it'll get noisy, muddy and will most likely put you over your budget.
