I was wondering if anybody knew of a good website to get high quality amps for a fraction of the price. Kinda like Rondomusic sells guitars and basses for cheap and Guitarfetish sells cheap high quality pickups. Anybody know a website or anything like that for amps?

I've looked at craigslist before and I know I can get good deals there on used stuff in my area. It's great actually but I was wondering if there was basically a rondomusic for amps.

Bulgera, lolz, they make a replica of almost any amp, but beware, you get what you pay for, it may explode.

Nice joke, i've not laughed that hard in a lonG time. GFS pickups aren't even close to DiMarzio or Seymour Duncan in terms of sound quality. Build quality, maybe. Sound quality's a joke.

For cheap and low end gear, with a few exceptions like JetCity, you get what you pay for.

it's so cool to hate Gibson, even the federal Department of Justice hates them.

Nobody is saying that they are going to be anything compared to a SD or a DM.

It's sure as hell going to be better than an Epiphone or Squier pickup though.

alright so if I got a Krank 50 watt tube head would it be a good idea to get a Bugera 4x12 cab or would I be disappointed in the long run?

Don't do that, there cabs suck and are made of partical board, Jet city makes a nice cheap 2x12 and 4x12 cabs.

Marshall Class 5 is a cheap, quality made amp. Its also very small. You gotta balance out your price, amp size, and quality.

This is the only answer, really. You're always going to get what you pay for.

There are a lot of Peavey amps out there for dirt cheap that are actually really good amps though. One example being the Ultra/ Ultra Plus.

I'd recommend a Fender Mustang amp, they're amazingly cheap for all the effects they include, look one up!
