i was playing my marshall stack and the head started to throw smoke at me...soo i was amazed of the incredible amp construction, it even came with a fog machine for live shows...naaaa not at all. im thinking of getting a new one, a crate blue vooddo 120 or a peavey XXX head. i like playing heavy and bluesy stuff but always with clarity and punch, not to much gain or middle, kind of a tight tone in steroids...can someone tell me about these amps?? iff you one them its better!!!!!!!

I played a Blue Voodoo when they first came out (about 1990?) and I thought they sounded very good but I constantly hear on forums that they sound tinny and lack bottom end. Try before you buy. My experience with one was about two minutes in a music store at very low volume.

Oooooo! You let the secret grey smoke out of the electronics. Once the secret smoke gets let out, it will never work again....

for the record i didn't know from hear-say that the blue voodoo lacked bottom end. when i did play it, i cranked it a bit hoping to get something good out of it. but it really just sound like a gainy, tinny mess. there's distortion, but no balls to it. maybe a tube swap would help, but from what i've experienced, there's better amps out there.

The cabs and stock tubes are horrid. (well mostly the tubes)


It's quite awesome if you put a mesa or a vader for a cab and get it retubed/rebiased.


That's what I did and I have the money to buy whatever now, but I don't really have the motivation to do that haha.

Kinda sounds to me like some of those big ass (filter?) caps blew... they can smoke big time if they blow out mid performance.

it's one of the TS's previous posts. It's in a thread about getting an yngwie tone

And afaik you're right, the only MG head is the 100 watt one so either the TS is misinformed or he's talking about something else.
