I've decided to finally go for a louder amp. Maybe a SS, at least a good one. I've been inspired to continue improving my shredding.

Anyway, I dunno whether to choose between a combo or a stack, SS or tube. My budget is $500-.

So..

Edit: Doesn't have to be one with good dist. I'd use a pedal anyway.

Definately, just not the MG. But I dunno, it's not like I'd use it for it's distortion.

yeah combo....ive got the Flextone II 2x12

it sounds great...although im sure a possible speaker chnage might do better, but than again, a tube amp would pwn it for sure haha

Stick with the palomino you already have. It will sound a lot better than just getting a louder SS amp.
When the intellectual part of guitar playing overrides the spiritual, you don't get to extreme heights.

whats the point in buying an amp then using a pedal for distortion?


Because a good distortion pedal will (generally) sound better and give you more tone control than built-in OD unless you're spending a good chunk of money on the amp or head.

^If you have a crap amp, maybe. If you buy an amp that suits your needs, then what you can get from a distortion pedal will usually be inferior.

Flextone combos are good. What's the matter with your V16?

Nothing really, I could use a louder amp and such. Possibly something better for shows.

Uh, a blues deluxe isn't a crap amp.

^Ah, but it has a crap OD channel. I think the clean channel, especially with a tube swap, is quite nice, though.

hehe, I agree. That's why the TS-9 makes it sound sexy

Maybe it's just personal preference for me though, I like the TS-9 sound more than anything I've tried besides a mesa and some marshal head that a venue rented for us once, no idea which one it was.
