i dont know man it has a built in ateunator at it sounds pretty sweet
you could also switch it to 100 ive played one plenty at times at a local store
and you can manage to play it at room valume no ****ing kidding
nobody needs 200 watts or 100 really its just nice that its there
i just think its was a really good amp and im dead set on buying it either that or a vibrolux
two comletely diffrent amps but ill have plenty of time deciding before i even get the money

I'm thinking about buying a Gibson Thunderbird with the money I make this summer. It's a good looking and sounding bass. That and maybe another GK 4x10 so I don't get drowned out by the rest of the band like I do now.

interesting i didnt see the 100 at the store but if thats out there i much rather get that lower wattage

does it have a switch to bring it down to 50

I'ma get my dream guitar.
It's gonna start out as a
Fender American Strat Standard in black with maple neck
Then gonna get Dimarzio area 58 for neck and middle pups
And a Dimarzio 61 for the bridge.
then i'ma put it on a Black pickguard, so i'll have a sort of Gilmour black strat.
then i'ma change the knobs and switch tip to those green Dimarzio ones (they go to 11!)
And i'ma get green pickup covers for the Dimarzio pups.


Total: ~$1300
#10
i dont think it has teh switch

but i'd prob get an orange tiny terror

just for kicks


also instead of the orange i may either get a marshall jcm 800 or a marshall silver jubilee head

I'm gonna go and buy either e Traynor Ycv40 or a orange rocker 30.

then I'll upgrade my strat with a graphite nut and bridge

and a Dimarzio Super distortion in the bridge

then I'll buy some rockman stuff with whats left over.......

so like 1500- 2000

i saved 2 grand over the summer (in AUS).

it is such a nice feeling when you work for all your gear, that way you appreciate it ten times as much.

I'm going to buy a Schecter C-1 FR Hellrasier, but I have bills to pay first, the real world sucks, lets see, car insurance, about $1000 to the dentist as of now, probably going to cost me closer to $3000, no health or dental insurance, and I need to get my car fixed, so I have no idea how long it will take me to save up. I'm just glad I don't have my own place yet, I wouldn't be able to pay for it(I'm not trying to bitch or anything like that, just saying me saving up money=hard ).

I don't know what in the hell jobs you people have, but when I was in high school there was no way I could have saved $3,000 in one summer. Maybe if I had not dirven my car or ever went out with my friends or did anything...

are you f*king kidding me? a rockerverb 200?

The Thunderverb is a bass and guitar amp, which is why it runs at 200W iirc.

Yeah welcome to the real world :-/

I pay about $600 in rent every month, another $150 worth of utilities and about $500 in student loan payments. I need a car but there's just no way I can afford upkeep and insurance so I have to beg rides off friends and take the bus/train/walk everywhere I go.

Thank god I don't have to pay for my health insurance, my Dad works for my Uncle who has a reaaalllly nice plan that I can stay on until I'm 26, so 3 more years of not worrying about that ****.
And maybe we can fly away from here, surf on the debris of a broken scene...

Sure, you could Get a Tunderverb 200 and a G&L Telecaster, for a few grand. Or, you can buy a MIM Fender Tele and a Peavey Classic 30 for less than a grand, and have money for the necessities of life that happen.

Really, saying "I'll work 40 hours a week, $8 an hour, all summer...****, I'm rich!" is childish.
#16
Well, I plan on getting a MKIV/mesa 2x12 and a Dan Armstrong Plexi at the end of summer. Gonna be expensive, but Im still gonna have a nice bit of money left over for any other expenses life throws at me!
