I've read around the forums seeing different opinions on whether active pickups work well with SS amps and so i just want to clear things up. For playing metal, is having this guitar and this amp good or would the active pickups put too much drive onto the sound?

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

Don't bother with that amp, it's a heap of sh!t. You don't need a halfstack either. Actives are not suited for SS amps anyway.

It's a real shame because he has been here since November 06......you'd think he'd have learnt a thing or 2 by now. Short answer, save up for a better amp dude, you are going to have a very difficult time getting any kind of decent sound out of your current one.

Maybe halmark should make a card for this situation. Something along the lines of sorry for your loss.

no, i have read about the spider amps and how they suck. but i thought that was only the combo, i don't think its THATT bad. i mean its like 400 bucks, and the only reason i have a half stack is cause i need to play shows and my roland 15x is just not enough >.>

well what amp do you suggest i get then?
