The dude just bought this, why would he turn around and go buy a better amp?

Full respect for being ambitious dude! I would really work on technique and enjoy what you have for the moment, that way when you have been playing a bit longer you will be sure about what kind of tone you prefer, and which direction to go when upgrading your gear. What did you want advice on, the rp70?

the clean channel on this amp is terrific so i'll use this pedal along with the clean channel of the amp

i've played classic before but was eager to upgrade to electric:P and i have been practicing for a month with my private teacher(a friend from a band:P) and my progress is fast due to my classic experience:P and i mostly listen to park waydrive, all that remains, children of bodom.killwitch engage.... so do you think the rp70 would do the job?

it will do the job just as long as you understand that it will give you an ok at best sound (but suitable for a beginner) don't expect to nail any those guys tones and you will be fine.

it's almost the law in this section of the forum to say get a new amp. bear in mind that your amp probably won't seem as awesome by this time next year.

dude i dnt mean by awesome that its the best amp out there...i knw that mine is a faily good amp not a perfect one but the thing is i wasn't able to afford a better amp so im really pleased with what i currently have....my brother's friend offered me a used line 6 uber metal distortion effects pedal for 80$ and the rp70(new) is for 100$... so what do u think should i get?:P my teacher convinced me to get the rp70 since it would be more fun to play using the several effects ...
so what do u people think?:P

this time tomorrow if you hang about on this forum till then
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

it's almost law for everyone on ug to assume everyone on the internet is american =P


but the rp70 would be perfect for a beginner, but the very cheapest way to get a swedish/melodic death sound is to get the Behringer hm300... it's a cheap copy of the boss heavy metal pedal, which is the pedal of choice for all them swedes
Dream rig:
Marshall JCM900 Amp
Avatar Custom Cab
Boss Fender 65 dlx reverb pedal

IMHO, use the amp effects till you can afford hi-end shit.
