your better off selling it on your own.

put it up for $475 on craigslist and hope for the best.


dont think so lol, I bough it for 300 bucks at GC specifically because I thought that 30 watts was too soft and because it was so cheap

it makes my telecaster sound like one of those pointy stratocasters with a floyd rose on any OD setting...


umm.... sure ok if you say so. please explain how exactly an amp can make your non trem guitar sound like one with a trem.

i already said so,
1) little sustain
2) thin brittle tone
3) overdrive is either thin and brittle or chug-chugging like a locomotive

Not all guitars with floyd roses constitute those tonal characteristics, just the cheap ones. I have a pointy guitar with a floyd that I play some music from the 60's with, It doesn't sound thin, brittle, or chuggy unless I set my amp to settings suited for that, otherwise it sounds like any other guitar. As for the sustain, it may not have quite as much as some guitars, but its certainly not like I'm playing staccatto or anything, the sustain is about what anyone who'd reasonably hold out a note would want.

My custom built Gilchrist has a FR trem and it has great sustain. Even with EMG's it's hardly what I'd call brittle either.

not looking for high wattage amp. I used a Orange Tiny Terror (the combo) on the 7.5 watt setting to play Voodoo Child for a 900 seat stage and I put the gain on 4 and the volume on 9 (if I recall correctly), so volume's not an issue

I'm thinking either a VOX AC-15 VR (are those good?), a Jet City JCA2012HS, or a $300 used Peavey Classic 30 at my local Guitar Center. Are any of those exceptionally good?
#93
TS I don't think you know what you're talking about.

The TSL really isn't a terrible amp. I think you must really be terrible at EQ'ing an amp, if you can't make a Marshall TSL sound good.

Anyway forget about the AC15VR, you might as well go all-tube rather than a hybrid.

Then again, what's your budget, location, styles of music you play, gig or home, willing to buy new or used, current gear? etc. Then we can help you more.

I was talking about the one with the floyd, that doesn't have a sustainer. Not the fretless one I know his fretless has a sustainer. As a matter of fact I was looking ata fernandes system because of what I saw in this song until I saw it'd cost me 300 bones to do cool shit like that.

the jet city and the classic 30 are decent.

try them. used orange TT heads sell for around $400. i think the night train head is around $400 new right now. try a tweaker 15 watt too if you can.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

It's just fiction, progressive horror or whatever, with a documentary aspect. I would never post my snuff on the forums.

Well I don't need too much drive, but I would like a good amount. Like twice the amount of drive from a Fender Blues Jr. (uncranked FYI, because I've never heard how it sounds cranked) and about the same sort of sound, just warmer but with the same level of harmonic output.

Also, I hate the kind of sound from the Marshall 1 watt combos (I've tried the JMP 1 and the JTM 1, the JTM was alright at best)

Is a Line 6 Flextone III good? I found one bundled with a Laguna LE524HH for around $220 on Craigslist.

Oh, and also a Fender Mustang III for $250

So is it an intake fan? Then that means the MG "sucks", and that's a fact!

Or is it an exhaust fan? Then that means the MG "blows", and that's a fact!



Actually, the fan will suck air in from one side, and blow it out the other. So it sucks and also blows at the same time. Therefore we can conclude that the MG sucks and blows.
