Wtf


I'm browsing for a new amp (just kind of looking, I'm not gonna buy anything for awhile so I don't know my budget) and I was wondering what a good match for a Les Paul would be (besides a Marshall).

NO, that is if you're using a REAL TUBE Marshall and not a solid state piece of sh*t.
Gear:
1980 Gibson SG Standard Cherry Red
Ibanez TM-71 Talman Artcore Semi-Hollow
2003 Tom Delonge Fender Strat Seafoam Green

ok cool lets not hammer this guy hes obviosly a noob.

1. All amps that carry the name marshall dosent make them super amps.

2.it depends its all a matter of preference ask jimi hendrix, what do you think hed say and it also depends on what kind of a sound your going for

I'd say a Diezel Herbert would be a better match with most any guitar than a Marshall, but again, it's all preference and opinion

+1 , or a mesa, or a vox, or a fender, or an orange .... it all really depends what YOU want your tone to be and what kind of music you play.

^VERY informative. not a good suggestion at all.

the only good response that exists to ur questions is something relating to:

"Depends on your tastes and EQ'ing ability"

i play an epiphone through a blackheart and it sounds damn good. *GASP!!!*

Marshalls best you can buy? ,,,,someones never heard of Dumble

he's going for full out tube tone. the vox's are great amps for sure, VERY fun too. BUT when sat side by side to a, let's say 5 watt tube amp, their tone still doesn't compare. i'm thinking he wants that really crunchy dirt tone you get from tube amps, which i could NEVER coax out of my AD30VT for some reason....it never got that sweet spot right in between clean and crunchy like a real tube amp...

for me, it's almost impossible to say which amp is THE best to buy w/ an unlimited budget....b/c they all accompany different styles..... but i'll agree that Marshalls are THE best for british voiced mid and high gain rock/thrash. of course i'm talkin mostly the marshalls before the 90s. I believe my favorite marshall is from the late 60s early 70s....THE best amp IMO for rock.

That makes you dumb yourself... j/k. Dumble is one of the first group of tube amp.

I found that, once you reach a good quality, what consider as "good" depend on your taste, simply because how each indidvidual component (tube manufacteurer, which anode resistor, what cathode resistor, what power tube, etc...) and what kind of sound you want. JTM45 is good for blues and hendrix stuff, but is bad for modenr stuff... while in theory modern high end marshall can do blues, in practice there's still something missing.
