well the head is the same as the combo? just in a different box. i mean, they sound decent with the volume under 4, but you'll usually be turning it up over that. and once the volume hits for the thing tuns to buzzy ****.

randall SS are great, as long as you're willing to spend a grand.

well mgs can be decent if you use them right
try to use the mid at half way to saturate your tone insted of turning up the voulme
use very litte gain from the amp and turn up your Pickup Volume on your guitar that gives you
alot more bite instead and a little less mudd
and dont forget the simple rule never turn your gain passed what your volumes at or actually never put your gain past 4. The trick to getting a decent sound out of the mg is mostly in the guitar its self and a few adjustments on the amp.

no, better than the MG.

how much can you spend? you could probably swing a used peavey 5150 combo for $400 or $500 ebay.

i still strongly advise you to check ebay for a peavey 5150 combo. it's a metal beast and all tube.

for $120 a week you could save up very quickly and afford some very very very nice kit.

like a used powerball head for about $1100 and a carvin legacy 2x12 for around $360 (new).

ok well...

my job right now is kinda confusing.
i work for a restuarant in my town.
and theres a camp right next to it.
the kids come from the camp.
we feed them.

so, as of now, im working for the summer, but since im part of the restaurant staff, i probably will be working (for the same pay) in the restaurant after the summer.
at the end of the summer ill have about 1300. my mom wants me to put some in the bank (maybe 400.)


AND the engl is a tube amp, which i dont need the volume for.
even though it sucks balls, idk if i can get a tube amp. whats the attuenuerator (big sp?) thing?

Get a small valve combo then, don't just think "valve(tube) amps are too loud)", go and play a load and see what you think.

I do not know about the head, but I have one of the matching cabinets and it is CRAP! Loaded with cheap, no name chinese celestions and the interconnect wire was pitiful. I am going to re-load with some better speakers though...

Listen to RHCP. He's constantly giving decent advice to people who for some weird reason, feel inclined to blow $600 on crap. Get a tube amp... you will not regret it.

There are ALOT of options, just look for used amps or a Peavey VK (some might disagree though)

Synester saw some sense! Good on you man! That's a cool amp. Tube amps tend to have a master volume control btw xsynysterx06... that kinda stops the amp being too loud.
