Sooo I just gathered all my paychecks, and i got $800 aussie dollars.

Should I get an Ibanez RG321MH or A new amp? and if new amp, wat model?

I play metal and nice cleans would be good.

I got a schecter hellraiser with emg's in it.

I currently got a Marshall MG15CDR, i live in an apartment so it cant be too loud.

thanks in advance

The Hellraiser is already a really good guitar. I suggest you get a new amp. The MG won't do the guitar justice since it's got EMGs in it. Why would you want to spend your money on another metal guitar when the Hellraiser is more than capable of doing the job?

Spend that money on a decent tube amp and you'll definitely notice a huge difference in sound. Try and get a Randall RG50TC if your into metal, it does a good job. Don't know whether its easy to find in Australia though.

well a good cheap amp thats small is a roland cube, but it wont do the hellraiser justice...maybe a blues junior with some sort of overdrive pedal?

i need another back up guitar for alternate tunings cos tuning the floyd all the time is a real bitch.

are tube amps quiet enough for bedroom playing? i play mostly at home, i jam less now with my band cos the drummer has his HSC ( senior high school exams in australia).

uhhh aussie dollars are cheaper than ur yankee bucks like $1 aus = 80cents american

Well, it's a hard decision to make really. Tube amps won't sound really good at low volume, so it's not really recommended. But if in the future you want to do a gig or something, then it'll come in handy.

And yea, alternate tunings are a b**** to do on Floyds. So, getting the RG as a backup guitar for alternate tunings is a good choice also. Well, its up to you actually. Which do you need more? A guitar for alternate tunings or a better amp that would serve you in future gigs and do your guitar justice?

EDIT: Woah, $1000 aussie? That's a little overpriced.

No point getting a pedal, you're just going to make the MG sound even worse than it is man. Haha.

Loud tube amps are great because they have this thing on them called a "volume knob"

Get an amp, your amp is ****, your guitar isn't.

rofl, how loud is a 30 watt tube compared to my mg?
#14
^Infinite. And beyond. Cus that's just how loud it is, to yer silly MG.
#15
oh damn, then i shouldnt get a tube amp. any good ss amps that will compliment my emg's?or should i just go for the backup ibanez?
#16
Perhaps try a Randall amp of sorts. However, avoid Line 6 Spider series and any more Marshall MG amps. They are total balls.
#18
The Randall RG50TC is a tube combo, not a SS. And yes, it will compliment your EMGs pretty well.

tube amps are gona be too loud for the place i live. so i'll look at some ss amps.
#20
Well, if you want to get an SS amp for metal, i recommend the Roland Cube 30. Its a good SS amp for the music you play. With the R-Fier setting, you're set for any heavy metal. But be warned though, it won't bring out the full potential of your EMGs because its an SS.

And if i'm not mistaken, you could buy BOTH the RG321MH and the Cube with $800.

Definitely check out the Ashton solid state amps. They're cheap here because they're Australian, and they are very good value for money. I myself have a GA4012 and it's pretty spiffy for playing in the bedroom and jamming. It distorts decently, which is nice, but I usually stick to the clean channel. This is where this thing shines. This amp has by far the nicest cleans you will get for anything even remotely close to its price (Just under $300) and beyond. It's a little barebones, but what it does, it does very well.

If you're looking for a new amp- i'd reccomend a laney VC15 for home practise. But bear in mind that it will be fairly loud, not quiet, not overkill either.

but, get yo ass down to a music shop and try some amps, then find one you can afford and like, we can only give you opinions
