Hi,


So If you've seen my thread about a new guitar, you'll know that I need a new guitar, if you haven't, then now you know.

I found an amp, It's from gear4music and It's a White Horse GT260 120W DSP Guitar Amp Stack and I have no idea if its good.


Anybody used it before? Thanks

have you tried looking for it in the reviews section?
but my guess would be its not good, not good atall

Don't buy for watts buy for sound it will pay off in the end I made that mistake and regret it now

The easiest way to tell if it is good is to look for the word "gear4music". Any item which has that written on it is not good.

Even in the budget sector, they are not good.

Keep looking, you WILL find something better for the cost, like the other guy said you want to focus on sound, not wattage.

The only way to know for sure that you are doing the right thing is to go to a shop and try a range of amps till you find something you like.

i haven't tried it but i'd be very surprised if it's much good.
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.

It's also a brand of extremely poorly made guitars and amps.

there are some good deals on jet cities at the moment on ebay from their distributor (they're new). Might be worth considering. I haven't tried them, but they're meant to be pretty good. Gonna be hard to beat at your budget, i'd have thought.

Thanks everyone!

Following your advice, I looked for good amps, not with nessesarly big wattage, and found 2 that seemed really good. The Blackheart Little Giant and The Blackstar HT5H Half Stack. They seem to be excellent for their price and pretty good for gigs if on the PA system aswell The thing is I can't decide. Any help? Thanks

I play punk, nirvana style grunge and rock (anything from muse to G'n'R) Probably will be used for Home, band practice and (maybe) a gig or two.

Thanks

k, thanks

I'm sticking with my original suggestion.

I'm not sure 5 watts has anywhere near enough headroom to gig with. I mean, I don't gig, I only play at home, and for me 5 watts has just about enough headroom for home use

i'm telling you, those jet cities i mentioned are going to annihilate any of those solid state beginner amps. Unless I've been very much misled as to what they're like (which I doubt).

not that I'm aware of, as long as you're ok with only one channel and no FX loop- there's a newer version coming out with two channels and a loop, but it's going to be more expensive.

But yeah I mean that's a very good deal, assuming it does the tones you want (as i said, I haven't tried it).

There's also a combo version as well, in case you didn't realise.
