thinking on getting a MG50DFX is it good amp for someone who plays in the style of van halen , i only have a peavey rage so im gonna assume its much better then that with a DS-1 pedal running on it.

Umm, MGs blow (and to answer ur question ther are not tube)... I'm just saying.. lol, for ur price range i guess the best choice is very cliche, its the vox valvetronix, one of those, i forget the actual model name (it has a pre-amp tube in it, its hybrid i guess). or try around and see what u like.
No I don't want to play your guitar... I might light it on fire.

Go out and play an MG, then play a Vox Valvetronix or something, or a tin of beans, the MG will sound worse.

i own one, my friend has a valvetronix, he heard mine and sold his valvetronix to buy the AVT so from that i would deduce that Valvetronix suck.
#14

I'm not saying MGs are good, because they really aren't (at least the versions i've played) but, how many people posting here have actually played the 50 watt version - it seems like bandwagon jumping by many people (obviously not everyone)

And (as i don't really care anymore) ENGL FTW!


This forum has turned to **** lately (even more so since Dave got de-modded) as so many people post things that they've never actually experienced but have just heard other people say...

I guess i'm gonna get banned for this now, but pffft

Damn straight!

AVT is good, but im starting to grow more into all tube sounds nowadays (i went from SS addict to Hybrid Addict and now i think im moving into the tube idea) but give the ATV's a try, they have nice distortion, so nice that i now hate my DS-1.
#20
avt's suck. MG's suck more. but are less expensive.

take your choice. something that sucks horribly, or something that sucks very slightly less, but is a lot more cash.

Avoid both, IMO.

I'm not sacrificing myself, just speaking my mind without a care what happens...

It's funny as the people in charge here have no weapon against me as in this state, I don't care whether I can post here or not...I'm just sorta hoping either they take heed of what I say and change the place for the better, or that other people (publicly) take the same view as myself...unfortunately it won't happen and I'll just clear off back to the other place...

I was guided by my tarot deck anyway - my card of the day was the 5 of swords, which basically told me that any problems i came across today that i should take matters into my own hands

Actully AVt's can be decent, but since they cost alot of money you can get alotof better amps for the price.

^ well, I wouldn't go so far as decent, gabe, but yeah, that's the catch 22 situation. They're definitely better than the MG's, but for the price they're still pretty rubbish, since as you say you can get a lot better for the same price, or even less!

^ Yeah, I haven't really explained very well...

Basically, this forum has really gone downhill recently - and it wasn't amazing to start with. The amount of misinformation going around and the lack of constructive opinions are getting ridiculous (yes, i'm aware my posts haven't been constructive to the threadstarter). If anything, I think that UG has become almost too popular, and it's getting too hard to control - MODS: maybe there needs to be some sort of culling of users posting useless information (start with me if you like)

So your dissing people for jumping on the MG wagon, but your saying ENGL FTW...

The "OMG LOLZ ENGL PWNZORZ HAHA OMG LOL" is almost as bad as the MG one.


They are good amps, but they get recommended too much.

Someone wanted 5150 tones(super dark) and someone recommended a powerball...
#32
My ENGL comment wasn't a serious one...and yes, they DO get recommended far too often...I love my screamer, but I'm fully aware it's not the perfect amp, and no way could it cover every possible base - and no amp could...But it is bloody good

unfortunately, it's not workable.

You can't really warn people for giving poor advice, and even if you could, it's hard to remember who gives good advice. Because most of the guys posting poor advice leave after about 15 posts- they've done the damage, get flamed, and leave. And a new one comes and takes their place. So it's virtually impossible to remember who all those guys are.

I agree with the sentiments though.

Oh well, I know I'm being idealistic and tbh it's not really the misinformation that annoys me - and in all this ranting, I've lost site of what it actually was that annoyed me in the first place

If there's a "Delete Account" button, can someone please point me in its direction, I need to get out of this prison cell (to quote queen)

And while we're not on the subject, I have a new love of Dio!!

^ i dunno if you can delete an account- you could maybe pm someone like mascot, ask him to perma-ban your account, but put in the black book that you asked it to be permabanned, so that if you ever change your mind, you can get un-perma-banned.

That'd be the best plan.

Or else just leave and don't come back, lol.

Oh, and dio seem pretty good. I like holy diver, that's for sure.
