Im looking to buy a new amp and I'm interested in getting a tone thats atleast similar to John Frusciante's. The problem is that i only have 600 dollars right now. I would be using an american fender stratocaster btw

IDK, but I think that something like a 2nd hand Fender Hot Rod might be able to pull it off. It's able to do that Fender-style super clean, which with your guitar should be good, and it's got an overdrive channel, too, so yeah. Look into it.

Froosh doesn't use Fender amps.

You could try a Traynor YCV50 BLUE, OP.

I think he uses a 1965 Fender Reverb head (not the Twin Reverb, just Reverb) for his cleans and a Marshall Silver Jubilee 100W for his "crunch" channel both running through Marshall cabs.

He uses a marshal major for his cleans, but only at large gigs
otherwise its all the silver jubilee

I've found that (in addition to a Marshall-esque tube amp) a compressor will go a long way towards getting a good Frusciante tone. I like my MXR DynaComp, but if you're willing to spend a bit more then something by Keeley would be even better and more versatile.

Quoted for accuracy. A compressor is a HUGE help in getting a Froosh tone, that plus a Marshall-sounding tube amp is pretty much the best base you can start from.

I can't really add anything to barden1069's post, he pretty much summed it up. +1

As an added two rubles, the Hot Rod OD channel is garbage anyway.

He used both the Major & Silver Jubilee simultaneously at all gigs, the Jubilee is just slightly crunchy at that volume, and the Major stays clean - the two combined is what creates his thick/clean/crunchy tone. His signal is split to the two amps from the Roland CE-1 Stereo Chorus.

Depending on the song, a compressor won't be the best choice. Picking dynamics and "picking swag" ( I made that up just now ) won't be as obvious.

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?
