i have a fender Stratocaster, and the amp i am using is my brothers old one... Fender Frontman 15G and clearly it sucks... and could never make the same sound quality as many post-hardcore bands so i plan to buy a new one but i have no idea which amp i should get

Well, a used peavey 6505 is probably going to be your best bet. Fill this out so we know for sure. A mesa dual rec would also be nice. Soldano SLO, Krank Revolution, etc.


Budget? - What is practical for you and what is your limit?

Genres? - What style do you play mostly, fav guitarists, do you need cleans, etc?

New or Used? - Lots of great amps out there used, especially in a down economy.

Home or Gig? - Also important. Maybe you do both. Jamming with a drummer can be considered 'gigging' but you won't have a PA etc.

Closest City? - We aren't here to stalk you but we need to know where you are in the world roughly and we can help further if we know what city you are in (ie craigslist, local shops, Guitar Center used section, etc)

Current Gear? - Also good for us to know.

I don't see the 6505 being a post-hardcore amp being a post hardcore because its a genre that needs cleans and frankly he is better off with the front man for that genre, hell almost anything is better for post hardcore then the 6505.
Ts please post your budget, favorite guitarists, and location.

Post hardcore is pretty much emo/punk what ever its high gain amps with garbage cleans is not what ts is looking for.

When I hear post-hardcore I think of Refused, At the Drive-in, Envy and what not

so in that vein of tones I would recommend a JCM800 or thereabouts. That's probably too spendy so look for a used Laney AOR or JCM900/2000. (or peavey vypyr 60)

Alexisonfire use pretty high-gain custom Morris amps - I know Wade used a Hiwatt (or did, anyways, before he smashed it at their last show lol) too... I dont know too much about anything post-hardcore past that though.

Hit YT, searched post hardcore, clicked through a few videos... and realized why I hadn't really listened to it before now...


On topic: Gain, obscene amounts of gain. You'll need a 5150 III / 6505 / 6505+ with two Metal Zones in front along with an EQ pedal set to a nice, mid-less V shape and jock strap two sizes too small (but only if you intend to sing). Throat lozenges may be a good addition.

Maybe if they had invented jock straps earlier, there would have been less eunuch roaming the churches.
