So I got 200 bucks to play with and I am wondering what I should get. I haven't really wanted to play because I'm stuck using a peice of shit no name solid state which I hate because of a fat **** of a roommate. (i have a glorious 50w non master volume head that I almost never get to use) I was thinking get a good used modelerer pedal, good tv volume amp (and I mean tv volume) or hope to polish a turd with a delay or reverb. I play a lot of metal (think Nile, Cannibal Corpse, immolation, death, slayer, electric wizard, high on fire, amon amarth I can go on for a while here) I also play a lot of dad rock, and some blues. If its a new amp I'd prefer to use the pedals I already have.

So GG&A what should I get. Poll incoming

Almost forgot I am near New brunsick or Central New Jersey for you cl people.

I'd honestly fap to anything with a set of genitals as long as I find it aesthetically appealing.

I heard a few demos of the pods and I honestly hated it, granted its better than a zoom but not by much.

How about audio interface for guitar, either with freeware amps or factory, like IK Stealth Jack or similar.


I used the ik media package once and it gave me cancer. I guess if I ran it into something with an excessive amount of memory and a decent sound card it would be ok I guess but that's not a realistic option.

I had a pod XT live that I really liked. There were plenty of options for amp/cab/effect combos then you could still use it with a decent amp later on. It was over your price range but I would think the other pod stuff would be as nice.

Get a used Line 6 Flextone I/II/III they run <$200 used at www.guitarcenter.com/usedgear. It works well at low volumes and can easily play gigs or with others if you ever need.

2013 G&L ASAT Deluxe
2009 Epiphone G-400 (SH-4)
Marshall JCM2000 DSL100

Morley Bad Horsie 2

Line 6 make good stuff, but the Spider amps are so shit it's given them a bad name. Avoid the Spiders and you should be fine.
In terms of PODs, get one with a money back guarantee and play with it for a week. Avoid the presets (like with anything) and you should be fine. If you're still not happy, just send it back.

EDIT: clicked amp on poll, but meant multi pedal.

I'm a bit worried about reliability on the flextone they had a dead flextone 1 and 3 over by me in the guitar center by me If I wasn't so skiddish about them it would be one of my better options. If I can get a pod xt for under a hundred I might consider it. It's just I don't want it to feel like I'm downgrading and spending money just to a bitch of a roommate. I kind of also want to use my pedals (mainly my muff)I don't think I can with the flextone, same goes for the other modelers.

I'm leaning towards a line 6 pod, just because its the cheapest option.

You can still use any pedals you want using any amp/pedal.
Just put it before or after the pod/amp as normal

I'll have to go to guitar center and try it, its just a general rule of thumb that modelers and pedals don't exactly work well together.

What you need is an Ampeg VH140C. The Crate GX130C is the same amp but can usually be found cheaper because it has the wrong brandname on it. I don't know if they will fall within budget but you should look around on CL/ebay for one and see what you can find.

I might look into a decent solid state head, I was able to get a solid tone out of my Randall when it was an amp. I think that 6 inch speaker might be part of my practice amps suckitude. I'll have to keep looking, besides its always good to have a backup

With that budget it's going to be hard. What you need is more cash.

What I need is a roommate that isn't a sociopath, my normal stuff is fine its just too loud for her. It would be nice if I had 4k for a kemplar.
