I came to politely ask the users of this fine site if I, a young guitarist who does not perform shows, should upgrade my amplifier. You see, in my opinion my tone sounds good using a pedal with my amp. I plan on buying a new guitar knowing fully that the most of my tone comes from the amplifier. SO, should I buy a new amp or simply get a new guitar. Thank you


Fixed to something that makes sense .

Grammar should be capitalized and if your refering to the Jewish Holocaust then it has to be capitalized as well.

I concede. Your right. But, I had the basics! Except for the holocaust bit. While, the jewish holocaust is the only one I know of, It isn't necessarily the only one to happen. Eventualy we might have another of another group. Who knows?

no. regardless of what you think, the Digitech Metal Master does not sound good and you SHOULD buy a new amp if that is making you Cube sound "good."

You'd be surprised at how much a good amp will improve your tone. And how much English lessons will improve your grammar.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

Regardless of what you think, good sound is subjective; if he likes his tone, then it's a good tone for him.

That said, what is the point of this thread? You didn't ask a question, you just told us that your opinion is the correct opinion.

Are you above the age of 3?

I'm pretty sure I know 4 year olds who make more sense than that.

Unless you're from another country, in which case I just can't understand.

If you are saying...You shouldn't buy a new amp if you like the sound of it. Then that is true. If you like the sound of your set up and you aren't playing shows or anything then why upgrade it?

To topic creator:
1) Learn the magnificant powers of puncutuation and learn to write decipherable sentences and paragraphs.

2) If I understood your post as, " I want a new guitar, but people keep telling me to get a new amp first and I think my set-up is fine.", then I would tell you to buy a new guitar. If you like your sound now, and would rather have a new guitar, then go for the guitar. The amp can come later, especially if you aren't in a band now. While sound is extremely important, I think it's more important for the guitarist to like the guitar they playing. I myself would be happier playing a beautiful guitar through a bad amp, than a bad/ugly guitar through a great amp.
