Hey UG i wanted to ask about the Kustom amps. I am looking for an amp powerful enough to be heard in a hall designed for up to 200 people. What caught my eye was this.

Now BEFORE you suggest Peaveys, they aren't sold here. This is one of the few affordable amps for me as the prices for amps are ridiculous here. Also i cannot get tube amps for the simple reason that they start at 800 bucks and with 5 bucks an hour it would take me forever.

Kustom is way underrated. It fits Metal like a glove, and have a amazing clean.
Har nånn egentli vorri langt sjøl om bestemt sæ for å bruk t å me gå å vill å gjør sjå mer lik?

Check Thomann.de. They usually have pretty good prices, although I'm not sure if they ship to Czech Republic. I believe (hearsay from the forums) that it's not a very good amp (although it's not terrible), but I understand if you can't get anything better. Are there any other alternatives?

Zombiak: About 10000-15000kc but would prefer to keep price down.
Fama: I will consider that but not many alternatives, and shipping here costs a crap load.

I had the kustom 65 watt version, very underated, good solid state amps, there nothing like a good tube amp though. But at a cheap price they pretty much as good as you get without going used. Will murder any MG or frontman thats for sure.

Did you check Thomann.de? I believe their shipping costs are usually reasonable.

Totally agree, I have a 10watt Kustom as my practice amp, have tried a frontman of an ex bandmate, have heard plenty of MG's (fuzzy!!) and prefered my Kustom all the way.

They are very good for metal! I can get some great chunky, chugging palm mutes.

I had a Kustom half stack (don't remember model) many years ago and it was decent. Nowadays, you can get away with simple clean amps and still get great sound with modelers like Guitar Rig 3. Many modelers and effects work BETTER in clean, sanitized amps.

Anyway, don't sell the Kustom short as it is a good amp. Oh and you can even download GR3 and others to try for free. I think the only limitation with GR3 is it craps out after 1/2 hour - but you just re-start it and continue to jam.

Good Luck

Get the Valve King 112 and a Bad Monkey. That should do it for metal. Trust me - the 50 watt 112 VK is loud enough.
