Am I enough good player to change my amp?
Now I'm playing for about 2 years, and have need for new amp(I have Yamaha F20)
I know to play Jimi Hendrix things(Hey Joe, Little Wing), Eric Clapton, Pantera, Metallica, Dire Straits(Sultans Of Swing),AC/DC, Canon Rock...know how to produce pinch harmonics, make a solo, play scales very fast,do arpeggios.
I'm thinking to buy Laney LC30 with Metal Muff and Dunlop Wah
What do you think, should I change my amp?

Do it! Better tone will lead you to play more, which will get you that much better.

Consider the VC30. It's voiced more vintagey for your older stuff, and the Metal Muff should take it where you want to go for the more mordern stuff.

Go for it, if you feel the need to upgrade, and you've made that good and well infrormed of a decision (Laney!) then you're ready.
However try them out first, and if you aren't gigging for the LC15R, or give the VC15 a try too.

Also the crybaby classics are crap. Seing as your into high gain as well as the classics, im sure somone else could reccomend something better.
#4
if you feel that the tone isn't good anymore to you, then i guess you need a new one.
scratch that dunlop wah though, it's crap.
#5
Put simply yes, are you going to be gigging within the next year or 2? if not the VC15 would do those bands better than the LC, or if you can save some more the VC30

Remember though that getting high gain out of a VC isn't easy, nor is it going to be giggable quality, at low volumes with an EQ and an MM you could probably get it, but it's just voiced all wrong for stuff like pantera etc at higher volume
#7
go for it.

i recommend trying out the slash wah (altho it is a bit overpriced) or a vox wah too.

I've heard very good things about the B-52 and if you're in the US you may even want to have a looky at Crate Palaminos

Oh, hush about the Crybaby wahs. They're fine.


Crybaby classics are pretty bad (at least according to the ultimate wah thread and what I've read on the forums), but other crybabies are good.

Lies and slander. Possibly Libel too.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

Crybabys sound good. The only problem I have had with them is the darn pots wearing out. I've had three of them in the last 15 years, finally went with a Morely Classic Wah (optical pots.)

i have got only 70$ for wah, is vox good?

If you're in the states I would look into a Mesa/Boogie F-30 or F-50. They're a little more modern, have a tad better clean, yet overall comprable to the laney. You can find them used for about $600-$800 and not need a distortion pedal.

Very vocal, great tone, not very suitable for hard rock or metal though.
