I revised this and took out some of the repeated stuff. Thanks Dave_Mc for the foundation.

Forum Rules

These are in addition to any general forum rules (No porn, links to porn, links to viruses, flaming, overuse of cursing/swearing). Any infraction of the rules of UG and it's forums will either result in a closed/deleted thread, and/or a warning/banning.

1: Multiple threads: Do not start more than one thread on the same subject.

2: Stickies: Read all the stickies before posting a thread, because they will help you by either giving you more information, or answering your question. If we feel that the thread you create is covered by a sticky, your thread will be closed.

3: Versus threads: Threads like, ?Metallica vs. Megadeth?, or ?Gibson vs. Fender? are not allowed.

4: Preference threads: Do not start threads about what you prefer over other brands, or what you feel like advertising about because you think it?s the greatest. If you are asking what other people prefer, that is fine.

6: Search: Use the search button every time you even think about posting a thread.

7: Keep on Topic: For the most part, posts in a thread must have relevance to the question asked by the thread starter.

8: Bumping: Do not bump your threads. This means don?t post in your own thread in order to bump it to the top of the forum list. Also, don?t bump dead threads from a year ago.

9: Forum use: As a general rule, every thread concerning electric guitars should go into the Electric Guitar forum, unless it concerns modifying the electric guitar. Every thread concerning amps or effects should go in Guitar Gears & Accessories, and every thread concerning modifying your guitar, amp, effect pedal, rack mounts, etc., should go in Guitar Building & Customizing forum.

11: Musical tastes: The Instrument forums are not for discussing musical preferences or to bash other people?s musical tastes.

13: It?s all preference!: What we like may not be what you like! The best route is to always try something before you buy it!

How to get good advice

1: What to state in your opening thread

Whatever you are buying, you must answer the following questions in your first post

(a) What do you want to buy?

(b) What is your budget?

(c) What type(s) of music do you want to play?

(d)

It would be helpful to list what gear you currently have. Then we could advise you as to whether the new kit that you're contemplating purchasing would make enough of an improvement to your sound to justify its expense.


(e)
Originally posted by gpderek09 (and expanded by Dave)
It would be helpful to tell us your playing ability or skill level. Some pickups and amps-eg. Dimarzio Evolution pickups- are fantastic and super clear at accentuating every note you play. This helps if you can play without mistakes (i.e. if you're good). Trouble is, if you aren't, it'll accentuate your mistakes, and make you sound worse than you are. So this will also help us advise you what to get. By the way, I couldn't think of any amps like this off-hand, but I have heard others mentioning them from time to time!


(f) Originally posted by Danno 13: Tell us if you're willing to buy used- this makes a major difference in what quality of kit you can afford, but of course it's a risk, and you need to know quite a bit about guitars etc. to not be taken advantage of.

2: What not to do

(a) Don't be rude : Just because someone hasn't answered your question (you think) properly, or hasn't given you the answer you wanted, doesn't mean you should diss them. They took time to answer YOUR thread, show some respect (it's only nice )
(b) Don't be vague/ambiguous: Be specific in your question, because nobody wants to write an essay on what your options are.

(c)

Thanks for this one, xifr
Also I'll add to this, it may just be that no-one knows. It's annoying, and it's happened to me before, but there's nothing you can do about it. If you're really stuck, you could try e-mailing the company for an answer (that helped me!).


How to give advice

1: Give advice, not what you would do: This is the most important rule. Advice means stepping into someone else's shoes, not telling the threadstarter what you'd do if you were him/her.

2: READ the original post: Don't just post away! Read what the thread starter is asking you!

3: Give sensible advice: If someone says "I'm 12 years old, I have $200 and that's all I'll have for the next 5 years (I have no job)", DON'T advise them to save up for an ENGL amp, or a Gibson Les Paul, it's not going to happen.

4: Don't recommend something you haven't tried: Just because you think something is good, doesn't mean it is. So if you haven't tried it, don't talk about it!

5: Do not be rude: Just because you think the thread starter is stupid, s/he isn't! We all started somewhere, so be nice about it.

6: Give reasons: Don't say "such-and-such a product ROCKS!". Say "i like it because of its bright, shimmering clean channel" or something like that. That's much more helpful, especially if the threadstarter hasn't tried the product in question before.

7: Don't say "It has a good name, it must be good": This is a pretty ubiquitous one. Most brand names made their names from a combination of past glories and top of the range models. It's unlikely a Mesa practice amp (if they had one) would be good just because you happen to appreciate their lone star, for example.

8: Experience with the product: Even if you?ve only played the product once, give us your opinion on it so we know where you?re coming from.

9: Location: Do not recommend things that are not available to the threadstarter or is too pricey because of import taxes.

10: Don?t know? Don?t post.

11:

speak at length about that which you DO know, and shut your hole when it comes to something you DON'T know.


If you have any questions, just PM a mod of the forum, and we?ll get back to you as soon as we can!

Sweet Jenny

If I cared enough, I'd change the tube and the speaker in my AD30VT, but fuck it. Not worth investing in.
Hi, I'm Peter
#21
^trust me it is. you can probably find a b stck eminence for under $50.
would change the whole amp.
that's how i feel about my 25R now, and that amp couldnt pump over 3 before.

now it's great for my acoustic electrics, fender practice, recorder out, ect.

oh and thanks

what would you say the Orange amp best suited for cleans/blues is? And what kind of cleans are we talking about? Fenderish? Voxish? I'm thinking of a new amp to go with my awesome new pickups Right now I'm leaning towards a '58 Bassman reissue, but I want other options.
