You cannot choose the little time you're given in this world. You enter bare and unclothed, provided only with intelligence enough to choose how you spend your time. You always have a choice. Always. Though be warned, your choice can rarely be undone

Stay FAR away from those, all equally shit, honestly.

For that price, Roland Cube, Vox Valvetronix, Laney LC15, Epi valve jr etc.

May want to start researching these boards. I don't think I have ever read of a single post saying something positive about the Marshal MG series.

Yep. I've discovered a pretty nice sound with it together with my TS9: where the TS9 provides a better low end. I still only use it with the drive on 9-10, lower than that and it loses it's bite (I think I'll post some soundclips sometime of how different 8 is to 9 on the drive knob). It pisses me off that it doesn't work after my wah, so I'll have to look at adding an output buffer to it (too bad my soldering iron died).

I can do some nice hendrix-woodstock-star-spangled-banner-style airplane sounds with it, using the whammy bar.

^I need an output buffer too, I so want that "Come On (Let the Good Times Roll)" Hendrix fuzz and wah sound.

The tonal differences from just a slight adjustment to a knob is huge, I love mine.

I can get that by rolling of the volume a bit: 'Come On' sounds more like silicon to me anyway.

I need to get my Octavia finished, for some Band of Gypsys -type stuff, but I need get my soldering iron repaired first.

I'll probably make a copy of my fuzz; just for shits and giggles; because all the parts are really easy to find around here.

I think I've played the Crate, and wasn't impressed. The other two I haven't played, but I've heard over and over that they're shit. R_H_C_P's suggestions are probably better.

Ehhhhh they're all crap. Get a Laney LC15R.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

I can get the Come On sound brilliantly.
I need to learn to build pedals, are there any books about it? I'd probably make the output buffer, then an original Clyde McCoy...

All I've learnt is from the GB&C forum, and some links they have there (www.runoffgroove.com, www.geofex.com, etc.)

EDIT:
By the way, my mom came into my room yesterday and commented on how bad my new pedal sounded.

Wow! Your mom is familiar with with the term 'distortion'? She's way ahead of mine.
#16
Yea, she knows what a wah is too since I play mine too much.
We were in the car and Maybe Tomorrow by the 'Phonics came on and she asked "is that one of them wah wah wah wah pedals in this song?"
I was rather impressed.

I just bought a Boss tremolo, by the way. It should get here on monday.
I'm quite sure I'll replace it later on with a better Voodoo Lab or Fulltone pedal if I find it very useful; so I bought it second-hand.

EDIT: Also, you two are kind of spamming his thread, might want to take it to pms seeing he was asking a completely un related question.




What was this thread about again?

EDIT:
Save up more.

Definatley go for a vox valvetronics in that price range. i bartered a bit for my 50watt one, and its kick arse. the effects are cool, and the distortion is fantastic! check it out on the recordings on my bands myspace.... www.myspace.com/therivettes! i used it on all of the recordings. its really loud as well for gigs and that as well. hoped that helped lol

cheers

Yes. Those 3 amps are probably the most hated amps on this board. I'd say a 1x12 valve king.
