i usually cant afford expensive stuffs.....i guess expensive depends on whos wallet the money is comming from. lol

mine are....
peavey 3120: seemed like the end all for me. 5150ish tones with a nice clean channel. wrong. money well wasted.
boss gt10: seemed like the perfect way to controll all fx and amps. after a while it lost its appeal.

Too numerous to count...

The most expensive 'item' I ever paid for that utterly failed to fulfill expectations would probably be my ex-wife...

(And she gave me two wonderful children, which means that if I had to do it again I'd still happily pay the price!)

Diezel Hagen. Sounded terrible in a mix, and broke down several times in the year I owned it, and again right after I sold it, meaning I had to pay out of pocket for the repairs. With the cost of repairs, and depreciation, I would have been out almost $1500 if I couldn't do most of them myself. Still was out $900.

Honestly my MKIII. I thought that it was going to really satisfy my hunt for the ultimate lead tone, but I just didn't quite bond with it. I also was not very impressed with the JVMs I have tried. I play the ones at my local store, every time I hunt for something worth a damn tone wise, but I can't.

I ****ed and didn't play the mark V enough before I bought it. Channel III had no low end that you could feel. My Krankenstein ****ed it up in that regard.

It was still a fantastic amp but I sold due to that. Sold the Krank as it was just filler in a mix. 5150/6505 has been my favorite so far.

See, it's important that people clarify when they say "metal", because I pretty much always assume they are a Cannibal Corpse fanboi.

It's hard to fault the Peavey, it really gets it right. I think I prefer my SLX ever so slightly more, but I still love the 5150s.

Expensive things worth the money:

Cameron CCV-100 (pre-production only)
Soldano SLO
Bogner 100B/20th XTC
CAA OD-100 (and all variants)
Gibson G0/R0 (plaintop or painted)
Suhr guitars

Just about everything else expensive that I've owned/played has been a let down.

Just for reference, what point of reference are you using for expensive?

$1.5k+

EDIT: Actually, I guess 1.3k+ since that's what I paid for my cheapest Suhr. Also about $100 bit more than a new 6505+, which I don't consider expensive.

Ok, that was where I was putting my needle, but I figured you have played with some stuff that I would consider outrageous, so you may gauge it differently

Bogner Uberschall Rev. Blue - Sounded great with a boost but absolutely hated that amp without it.

Bogner XTC 101b - There were some ok tones it in but overall it was really harsh on most channels to the point where I had an extremely hard time dialing it out.

Soldano SLO - Good amp, but I expected MUCH more for the pricetag. Is honestly rather have a Hotrod or Avenger.

Orange RV100 MKII
- The original was badass. The new one was kinda meh.

Ampeg SVT line - Every bass player I know oogles over these things and the Mesas next to them kicked the shit out of them

Diezel VH4 - Would be cool... If it was $2000 cheaper. Sounds great on recordings, hate it for the price whenever I've tried it. Don't get the hype.

Diezel Herbert - I still love this amp, don't get me wrong. Sounds HUGE, but it is VERY relaxed in the mids. There's a reason that amp is 180w, because you need the shear power to be heard in a mix.

VHT Ultralead - For years I'd GAS'd over this amp, thinking it'd be the perfect match for me, I've owned 2 since then and they're good but lack the "awesome" I thought it'd have.

Engl Powerball - Fizzy mess. Do not like.

FJA modded Mesa Racktifier - Aside from the 3 ch triple, the worst Recto I've ever heard.

Mesa 3 Ch Triple Recto - I'd honestly rather play through a Line 6 Spider.

Mesa Mark IV - Lead channel is great, the rest I could do without.

Mesa DC-5 combo - Good sounding amp, but I replaced my 50 Cal + with it, and the 50 Cal was a much better sounding amp IMO. The DC-5 cost more and was a downgrade in tone. Oh wellz, at least it looked pretty.

Axe-FX Ultra/II - Low and mid gain sounds were fantastic, as were the effects, but the learning curve on it is insanely steep and I spent more time pressing buttons and moving knobs than I did actually playing the guitar.

BBE Sonic Maximizer - It was great at first, then I tried an EQ in place of it and discovered that the Maximizer didn't do anything the EQ couldn't.

Carvin Legacy - I thought this thing was gonna be awesome, since I love Vai's tone... But man, that thing was looser than a 3 channel Recto. Yuck. Not sure how anyone who plays rhythms could enjoy this amp at all.

Peavey XXX - The Ultras are half the price and sound better, with basically the same features.

Blackmachine B2 - PHENOMENAL neck, but I've heard $500 guitars that sounded better than that thing loaded with BKP Nailbombs.

Oni 7/8 - Really cool necks and a great player, but man those guitars sound horribly muddy.

Blackdroid 7 - Looked gorgeous but the neck was too big for me, and it sounded like crap.

Framus Cobra - I LOVED this amp at first, but after a few months, it just sounded like a bunch of fizz and lowend to me

Splawn Nitro (EL-34) - I got it with EL-34s cause that's the classic Marshall-esque sound. It was alright, but pretty boring. The KT-88 version I had killed it. Talk about cut!

EVH 5150 III Mini - I thought it was gonna be awesome and blow me away since the last time I tried the 100w head, I was quite impressed. Wrong - I'll be holding onto my original 5150, still!

Pro Tools 9 - Avid sucks. 'Nuff said.
