So right now I still have a Fender Rumble 15, and I may be going to Sam Ash/Guitar

Which one should I get? Does it matter what bands I want to sound like?

Don't worry about the foot switch thing, its to select channels on the amplifier, and as you can see it only has one channel so thats not a problem.

Ohms are the power rating, and what it can be run through.

Tubes are found in some amplifiers and give a different tone as supposed to solid state.

Tubes are really useful if your going to use distortion, I've played one but not for long, I liked it, its definately different, but also it's price tag >_<

Ok, well I don't really use distortion, so I shouldn't really care about a tube right?

Unless you want to raise your budget by about $300 i wouldnt worry about tube amps.

Any other amp suggestions? And should I see if I could sell my current amp to the store or something?

bump


I saw a half stack in a catalog for $300, it's a Gallien Krueger
125W BP250 head
4 band eq
xlr out
115bpx 1x15 cabinet

Is that good? Is a half stack better than a combo amp? How?
I need an answer ASAP, I'm leaving in a little bit for the music store

well with a half stack you can ugrade one piece of your rig at a time while with a combo you're pretty much stuck with what you got. While most combos have the ability to add on one speaker cabinet you still have to ditch the speaker that's attached in the combo if you change the head.

GK are ok amps so if you see that go for it....really just try a bunch and see what sounds best.
