I just got $180 and I want a new toy.

I don't really care what it is as long as I can use it.

I have a gibson explorer (stock)
bc rich warlock (crap)
Crate FXT65 (not too bad)

I wan't something I can use
I was thinking about pedals
or maybe white emgs for the explorer, but then I'd be out of cash and I'd need them installed
maybe duncan JB

I want something cool and useful

any ideas

I'd save a for a new amp. I haven't tried an SS amp that I liked, but I must try one of these roland Jazz Chorus's I've heard so much about. I have played that Crate though, I wasn't a fan.

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

id also say save for an amp, but i dont think you want to save up at the moment, i think you want to spend.. which isnt a bad idea. id say get a pedal.... if you dont need distortion/footswitch, get an octave pedal. BOSS Super Octave is what im lookin to get pretty soon, i think its within your price range.

True, but make sure it is a good pedal, so you can still use it when you get a better amp.

Phaser? Flanger? Wah? Something fun.
Also, you can install pickups yourself. It's not hard.

I figured I'd get a lot of saving for amps

I didn't know if pedals would have the same effect on a SS amp as on a tube amp

Or if you really don't want to save for a new amp, just go out and buy an Epiphone Valve Junior right now.

At only 100-150, depending on whether you get the head or the combo, it will be a pretty sweet new toy that sounds much better than your current amp.

And I'm not sure how your SS Crate takes effects, but I'm pretty sure I'd take the Epiphone Valve Junior with a Bad Monkey (<$200 max for both out the door) over virtually any solid state amp with whatever pedal you throw at it. Just my two cents.

As much as I hate saving like most, I agree with most others. A good amp will just make playing much more enjoyable.

the only problem with saving is that I don't have a job
I do odd jobs maybe a few times a year and get about 150
we just had spring break and I did the odd job
The next time I get money will be after christmas maybe spring break

So that is why I am so repulsive to getting an amp
It would take too long

I had to save for 3 years to get my explorer and even then I had to dig out the bank

Maybe its time to consider a job for your needs. Well if you sold a bit of unused stuff around the house, you could make a good $250-$300 to get a fair amp. Sell the Warlock. If you really don't want to, maybe just tell us what kind of pedal you'd be looking for and I think we could help much more.

All in favor of this guy saving for an amp say "aye"


AYE!


+1

I will say one thing though. I have the GT65 and it doesn't sound horrid, I love the reverb on it and as far as things go it's pretty damn loud without clipping right away. I read the flexwave (or whatever) series wasn't as good though.
