Wut

If an amp has numbered knobs to 10, 11, or 12, it really doesn't make a difference in sound. If an amp goes to 11, it doesn't make it better than an amp that goes to 10.

Look again at the amp you have bought

funny. In reality they don't go past 1 with decent sound.
*FACT, they sound worse as you turn them up.

I figured this thread would have already turned into a spider 3 bashing thread.

I was correct. You people are lame.

Anyways, your amp doesnt need to go to 11. It doesnt matter if it only goes to 5. As loud as it gets is as loud as it gets.

Turn it down. Pushing that amp that high is almost sure to steal some of your tone.

When will the bandwagoning end?

They are good for practice. The Clean channel has a nice sound at high (even giggable) volumes but if you use the distortion too loud they are terrible. Generally past the 30w version is not advisable.

You are either a troll or a moron. I'm leaning towards the latter. It doesn't matter what the amp says. The pot has the same amount of travel.

Dude, get use to it. Sorry to tell you, but here on UG theres a trendy bandwagon of people that will bash anyone claiming to own a spider.

Thats just the way it is man.

SINCE YOU'RE ****ING SERIOUS I'M GOING TO EXPLAIN IT TO YOU.

An amp's settings don't go up to 11, that is simply a scale. Different amps might use different scales, for example, most amps go 1->10, some 1->11, or 0->20, or 1-5. IT DOESN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE SOUND. A knob pointing straight up if it's on 2.5 is going to sound the same as another amp if it was 5 on the scale.
#22
its not really fair to bash an amp just because its an amp...sure there is different types like valve or tube or modeling but its stupid just because they are starting out guitar or dont have a job so they cant afford a mesa boogie or a bogner doesnt mean its a right to bash it

It has 11 ticks
The first is a zero
Therefore
We can conclude
That it goes up to ten

Anyways, it doesn't matter if it's to ten or 11, as the pot will only go so far.

Dude, my amps gain knob goes to 20, does that mean it has more gain? No, it just means it has more numbers

I have no clue what the hell you're going on about, but I'm guessing it's pretty stupid.

There are 11 ticks which means your amp does go to 11.

Let me add, I wouldn't want to ever turn it up past 11 anyways

But, doesn't the Bugera 1960 or something go up to like 22?

See post #12. People said it did not matter what the numbers were, it's just a reference point. You said yes it does because it's different.

If you would just read this thread, you would get what I'm on about.
