Thanks for letting me know which gear sucks so I styay away from it and buy better gear. Today, my band was trying out for our schools talent show, and there was another band there who had every crap gear that has been mentioned on this site. They had:
A White Marshall MG100 Halfstack
Line 6 Spider II 120w
Fender Frontman 212
Ibanez GAX something

and they tried doing a cover of Blink 182's "Josie." Their drummer couldn;t keep a beat going if he life depended on it.

Now, my band had some decent gear, and we cover Nirvana's "Breed" and did a kickass job. Thank you UG for saving my ass and not letting me buy crappy crappy gear.

Your post is fake.
I can tell because you said you did a good job, yet you said you played a Nirvana song.
That just doesn't work.

Good job, and no problem. That's what we sacrifice our lives to be on this site for.

Breed is actually one of their less soundinh Grunge songs, sounds more punk.

My gear is a pile of crap and I still manage to impress people.

Its how you use your gear that makes your sound. Granted some things sound better than others but you can patch things over with pedals and what not but at the end of the day, I still play with crappy gear and sound better than someone with better gear.

Gear reviews on UG annoy me. There's no universal rating system and thus we have both Squier and Fenders recieving user scores in the 9.x's. It almost renders the rating system completely pointless.

Indeed..it's annoying how a practice amp can get a better or equal score to a clearly supperior amp..

So sigged.

Also, you're welcome! Even though I played no part in any gear bashing or suggestions. But then again, I didn't suggest any bad gear. And with my logic, that means I was helping

You said their drummer couldn't keep time?

**** what UG has to say about gear. As far as I'm concerned, if you like the sound, go for it. You shouldn't automatically not consider something like an MG or a Line 6 just because some internet forum says it sucks. It all depends on what sound you want and what you are going to do with it. EXAMPLE: I bought a Kuston Kga 65 watt SS amp from a friend and UG told me it sucks. I play in a melodic hardcore band and it works great.


Moral of the story: Don't let some internet forum sway your opinions.

You thought they were playing crappy gear, but your sig says you play a Crate?



My amp isn't crappy. It's one of the better solid state amps that Crate made.

I see that this topic has gone to nonsense and people not aren't even sticking to the original point. MY amp isn't bad, you've obviously haven't played it if you think it's bad. People who flame other equipment have played them, and they realize it's not good sounding. All I wanted to do was thank those who played a MG, Spider, Frontman for their input on it. Becasue really, I got a better amp then what I already mentioned, due to their review. Mods can close this if they want now.

Why would someone buy an MG halfstack :| ?
Why would Marshall make an MG halfstack :| ?
I mean, I understand a valvestate halfstack. Even though it's a solid state, it sounds amazing for a solid state and isn't expensive.
But an MG halfstack ?

My post was intended as more lighthearted than you seem to have interpreted it. Sorry.

you're thanking the pit for something you most likely learned in teh guitar gear and accessories forum?
