Hello everyone.

First of all, sorry my bad English, it is not my native language .

I've decided to buy something better than my Laney LG12 (also i have Pod HD400, but i don't like how it sounds and i can't find the right tone to play), and i need some help. My main style - punk/hardcore punk/fast melodic punk.

My first variant - Orange Micro Terror + 1x12 V12 cab + several pedals, so that i could play with my friends using cab and play at home using headphones.

Second - something like AMT LA-2 P-2 + AMT Tubecake 3w + 1x12 V12 cab.

Third - another cheap head (300-350 dollars) + 1x12 V12 cab + several pedals, but i don't know, will they be better than Micro Terror.

I'm aiming to have a good distortion sound, clean tone isn't very important for me. I'll use this equip mainly for playing home/playing with my band, but soon we are planning to play in different clubs and bars. In that case i hope i'll manage to use pedals straight into stage amp and get the sound i like .

So, what will you recommend for me?

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

You should be able to get a good punk tone with the HD400. What settings are you using on the POD?

I've tried almost every amp on Pod and still didn't find anything that i like. Also, in my opinion, 90% of all Pod effects are useless.

I'll try to find Vypyr or Blackheart and listen to them. Any other variants?

You have a great simple solution.
DI right into the PA. I didn't have a problem with the pod500, search around there on it.

Did you tweak any of the amp models on the POD? The FX's are really good on the POD also.

If you did not like any models on the POD, you will not like any amp in your budget at all. Maybe you should just play acoustic guitar

aren't there other shared tones when hooked into the computer?

somebody could back me up? i would appreciate it.

if you can't find what maybe you could try some tones somebody made and posted on the web.

maybe you could hop over to the line6 forums.

If you are looking for a preamp, take a look at the offerings from Tech21 if they are available in your area. They are not too expensive and they are very good.

Your right, the Line 6 forum does have patch sharing. I completely forgot about that

I have seen CD's in ebay that have 1000's of patches for the POD HD and they are only a few bucks
