Hey GG&A,

This is the amp part of my help my gear threads.
I hope this doesn't count against the multiple threads rule-I post this on the GG&A forum and the guitar on EG because each subject is more relevant to the forum it's posted on.

Ill edit in the address for the guitar thread later,so you can see what they suggest there and maybe use it.

Alright,lets get on with it:

I'd like an amp with 2 footswitchable channels(3 or more possible, i don't think ill really need it but anyway),takes pedals well,nice clean and overdriven tones.
Ill be using it for home playing, but id like to be able to play with it and be heard over drums.
I dont mind if its a combo or a half stack(i don't really need a half stack).
I play anything from a nice clean sound to a high gain metal/metalcore(Metallica,BFMV,A7x for example of the higher gain).
Budget is 1700 USD for both my amp and my guitar,and i cannot go used.


So GG&A,what do you have for me?

if i had $1700 I wouldn't be buying blackstar or Peavey anything.

Look at Splawn, Marshall, Mesa

Ok,i was probably misunderstood a little (handbanana)

I'm looking for an amp at about 15-20 watt power,looking to spend abit more money on the new guitar,and i've chnaged my requirements abit.

The are the amp i limited myself to checking right now:

Rgnater Tweaker,the JCA 20W combo-two favorites around here,or a Blackstar HT-20.

Now, i've got a few questions:

1.can i retain a nice clean sound with the tweaker and the JCA while i have gain and my guitar volume is low?
2.Is there a possible footswith for the tweaker's clean and distorted modes?
3.How much gain do either of these amps have on tap? Can they be used for the heavier genres i play?

why can't you go used?

that really lowers the overall quality of gear available to you.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

I can go used depending on what i find in the only week i'm in america next month.
Otherwise,there isn't any used gear in Israel-except for old student 100$ value packs.

http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/msg/1887242479.html $250? someone buy that right nao..

anyway if you have a month, you have time to search around. there is plenty of great used gear all over the states. good luck.
