I was just wondering, do different amps make different sounds/tones? Or is that up to the guitar? My current amp, which came in the starter kit I bought, does some pretty cool heavy metal stuff but what I really want is the Paramore type sound. Listen to Misery Business and you'll hear the sound I want.

So if I get a different amp, can I get the sound I want, provided I buy the right one?

yeah, you can.

the guitar will obviously play a part too, but the amp is the main thing.

what amount of money do you have, and what's your guitar?

If it wasn't for your join date, I'd think you were spamming. Your amp comprises at least 70% of your tone, and is easily the biggest factor in it.

Anyway, if you get a new amp it would be much easier to get a Paramore sound.

try a marshall, peavey, mesa, and line 6 when you go to guitar center. there will be a huge difference in tone. i'm pretty sure the guys from paramore use marshalls.

I don't have any money, but I can save. The guitar is a Silvertone SS10 "Citation" and the amp is the one that came with it as it was a starter pack. I've messed around with the settings on the amp forever but I just can't get the right sound...

I feel that if the amp had pitch control, I'd be able to get what I want... are there any out there with pitch control?

What exactly do you mean by "pitch control"? The way you worded that, it sounds like being able to change the note you're playing on the amp....

Pitch... yeah, you know, make the tones higher or lower.

... you need a pedal to do that.

what's the guitar like? is it a strat copy? gibson copy? or something else?

as already said, you'd need something like a digitech whammy pedal to do the pitch changing, but i don't remember hearing any whammy pedal stuff in any paramore i've heard...

i'd get a new amp first.

Yes, different amps make different sounds.

Marshalls are raw, Fenders are warm, Mesa's can be pretty heavy...
it depends on the settings of the amp, together with the kind of speaker, (possible) cabinet, tube/transistor and what more....
