I am looking to buy a new amp. Right now i have a Marshall MG10 and im looking to buy something around 200-250. Right now I think i might get the Crate V8 Palomino but im just wondering what you guys think i should do. I play all types of classic rock and some other stuff like RHCP and some blues and Matallica. What do you think i should do? Right now i have a Epi Les Paul 100 and might be getting a Standard Mex Strat sooner or later.
To be perfectly honest for most classic rock, the Epiphone Valve Junior will work wonders. At some later point you can put a good OD in front of it and get some higher gain modern tones (which would suit the Metallica end of the deal quite well).
Get the Crate V8. It'll be great for those tones, and be able to Metallica-ish tones with a good OD pedal.
that amp will definately work with a Tubescreamer or a Zakk Wylde OD. A Pickup change on the Les Paul would make things alot better. A Strat is almost needed for doing RHCP.
Froosh used an LP for some of the stuff on Stadium Arcadium, and he likes this semi-hollow for some songs live.
I just got a Peavey Valveking Royal 8, and I'm in love with it. I play classic rock and it gets a good tone for it. It's even better with an OD pedal to get a harder sound. It's selling for about 200$ I think.
