i want an amp that can go from clean to distortion with good pedals!!!!

I have a microcube and it rocks but i cant make any changes from clean to distortion.
My guitar is a agile al-2000

when i mean cheep i mean like nothing over $100 lol i make no money these days

pedals im getting: jh-1 jackhammer
Boss mt-2
prolly some wah pedal later on

Options i was lookin into:
fender frontman 15g
epiphone valve jr (**** its a lil expensive)
crate 15watt

please help!!!!! and no i dont gig yet but i do make youtube videos of myself and my songs require a change from clean to dist

Good amp for $100? Prolly not gonna happen.

MT-2? Absolutely not, it's a terrible pedal.

If you just need something for going from clean to dirty, theres no point getting a new amp. See if that amp has a footswitch or just buy a distortion pedal. Check out the EHX Metal Muff.

The Cube series usually allows you to add a foot switch, I know my 60 does.

The Micro Cube doesn't.

1. Stop saying lol.

2. Apart from the fact that what you just said is completely wrong, you said you wanted to buy pedals! I can only take that to mean "I only want pedals if I can get a new amp". Well, for $100, its not going to happen. And as you can't buy a footswitch, you're gonna either have to change manually or get a distortion pedal. That's what I said earlier, but I suppose you chose not to listen.

rofl how come like 40 pedlals i tried out suck on the roland microcube?

Because you don't know how to EQ? Maybe you were doing it wrong and you refused to let the GC employee help you.

Yes they do, its not hard, leave it on clean and press the fucking pedal. It WILL work. You haven't tried, you're talking crap. And you won't get a decent amp for under $100, at least nothing better than your micro cube. Trust me, I have a Fender Frontman.

rofl how come like 40 pedlals i tried out suck on the roland microcube?


1) I find it hard to believe you tried 40 pedals.
2) They were probably either crap pedals or you dialled in a crap tone.
3) What the **** is a pedlal?

Refer to my first post, you douchebag.

If you had just listened in the first place instead of spewing bullshit everywhere, this thread would be over now.

The microcube has a ton of distortion already...

I wouldnt get the valve junior, it doesnt have a way to easily control the gain.

my bro has a micro cube and his distortion and phase shifter sound perfectly fine as it would on any amp in that price range and if you are smart you would relize that paying around 100 will give you an amp that isnt worth it an will suck more with the pedals

you should just listen to Tom_hatton relize you are wrong suck it up and get on with your life

#29
You obviously suck at dealing with people's advice, maybe you suck at guitar and thats why 40 pedals sounded like crap. Just stop complaining and listen to Tom.
Your opinion is just that, YOUR opinion. It doesn't make you right. It doesn't make you better. It doesn't make you god. Everyone has their own view and that view is neither right or wrong.

Wow, what a moron. Don't ask for advice if you're not gonna take it. Don't try to sound threatening on an internet forum, it just makes us all laugh. And to be honest no one here is gonna care how pissed you are at these forums. If you don't like it, piss off.
