ok im getting a new amp ive got more or less £250 to spend, and i want somthing between 50watt and 100watt

im to to bother about actuall amps, what i want to know is what brands / models different bands use.

ive have found out some :

arctic monkeys ---> HIWATT and Orange
AC/DC --------------> MARSHALLs make this sound good

and i want to know what these bands might use, or alternitivly what amps could make a simmilar sound:

The Fratellies -------------------> ?
Elbow (most important tbh)-> ?
Franz ferdinand ----------------> ?
Oasis -----------------------------> ?
Queen ----------------------------> ? ------- brian may Vox AC30's
The Last Shadow Pupets ------> ?

You won't get a good AC/DC sound for 250 pounds.

And I see you might want a Marshall, DON'T GET AN MG!
Fender American Special HSS Stratocaster
Ibanez 1987 Roadstar II Deluxe
Yamaha THR10X
Marshall JCM900 SL-X
Ibanez WD-7 Weeping Demon Wah
TC Electronic Polytune
Seymour Duncan Tweakfuzz

just buying equipment wont make you or anyone sound like a pro, youre going to sound crap through anything UNLESS you work on your fingers


right now that's out of the way i'd have to reccomend a laney VC as usual
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

Are you sure you want 50 watts? That's pretty bloody loud.



thts the thing i have no idea how load these things are. i need an amp for home and gigs --> (of up to 50 people)
#12
Sounds like you want the sound of a Vox amp my good man. But 50-100 watts is a bit excessive I'd have thought...

+1

Save up for an AC15 or an AC30

I wholeheartedly recommend the Laney VC30:



£300+ new, so you'll need to look at eBay, Gumtree, and other secondhand instrument retailers.
I can think of absolutely nothing better in your price range for what you play.
If you can't find one used, the VC15 should be fine but it has slightly less versatility than its bigger brother.

MGs are overpriced for what they are; fopr the money that you would spend on an MG of any size you could get a much better amp i.i. one that sounds better and is more reliable. I also choose to take issue with the existence of any MG over 15 watss; that amp should never have been made in a giggable wattage.

if youre only gigging to 50 people i'd look at the VC15, itll cope with small gigs no problem unless you want crystal clear cleans, and itll sound much nicer at home because youll be able to turn it up higher
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

Anyway, now that we know what tone you want, do you need this amp for gigging or are you just throwing numbers out there and hoping something's right?


lol well i would like to do some small gigs

Most definitely. The voicing is perfect for British indie and rock tones.



thank you and nicely worded
