ok guys im new to UG, so i'll make my first post short n simple,

it seems that im currently in a dilemma about which gear to buy,
i have four choices -

1. a new electric guitar (mid-range price, non tremolo, bt should luk gud n have decent tone)
2. a new electric-acoustic guitar (again mid-range, and should have an im-built eq and gud enough tone)
3. a BOSS loop station, the foot pedal one, forgot which one it was called
4. a new amp, just a 50 watt amp, which is a gr8 upgrade from my current pathetic 15 watt marshall

so im putting my tattered and battered trust in u UGers, so please help a fellow guitarist out!!!! well thanx in advance,

and ohh yeah, to those concerned, i play metal mostly, so if u could suggest ny amp or guitar models which r kick ass, den plzz feel free to suggest,,

peace out!!! foo!!!

I remember my first erection. I went to my dad and was like "Do I have Aids???". I seriously thought there was something wrong with me.

You'll hear it from everyone, get a new amp first, You'll probably get a lot of people suggesting the vox valvetronix series (rightly so), or the roland cube series (also great). Get your amp before your guitar.

New amp.
The Laney LC or VC 15 would do you better off than a 50 watt solidstate.
Mine is heard down the street with the volume on 3 and the gain on 5. Oh yes.

amp, yeah, but no marshall mg. size doesnt matter (unless you gig, but i dont think you do) ,sound does matter

#13
of course its up to you, and effects can generally be more "exciting", but a nice amp is perfect in the long run. get something with nice cleans then you can get a good distortion/ od pedal.

Amp. Preferably a tube combo and maybe some analog stomp boxes.

Check out Atomic amps if you live the models on the xt live, they de digitise the sound alot and you can with some care get some very convincing sounds. still not perfect but a huge step up from any other option to amplify modelers.

MD, hush up. Many people on UG don't speak English as a native language and therefore the standards are sometimes low. Even if it is his native tongue then there could be a host of reasons why the grammar and/or spelling were poor e.g. lack of education; learning disability, etc.

Proper use of language does not make you in any way superior, more intelligent or more valuable to society. You're obviously an uptight faggot so take your poor attitude somewhere more fitting, perhaps the bottom of a high cliff or mine field.


Now, to answer the TS, I think a nice amp would be your best bet but it would be helpful to know both your price range and your preferred style of playing.

I'm not sure I would have put it quite that way SB (and then again maybe so) but what you said about the English language is right on. English is a notoriously imprecise and difficult language for some first language speakers, and is a bitch to learn. American English is quite different from the Queen's English, or Australian English or Indian English. In addition some choose to speak in slang as a matter of culture. I.E. teh brootalz. If a poster doesn't understand a TS then its time to ask them to clarify, not flame them.

So you call someone a faggot? Wow thats nice. Why dont you just use some more hate-speach? Why Didnt you go all the way out and call him an uptight faggot kike ****** lover?! You may not agree with him but throwing around faggot isnt the right way to go about things like that. Is it really ok to call people faggot and call things gay still? Jesus I thought I was way beyond that when I got out of high school but I guess people with attitudes of 16 year olds are still around every corner. You got way more bent about his comment than the guy who it was aimed at.
