Alright I'm looking at buying a new amp head, and buying a delay pedal.

My current amp head is a crate gt 1200h. It's all solid state and gets a decent amount of distortion and works ok for my band (progressive metal ala nevermore). However i'm tired of it and want something with more kick, you know? However I want to try and keep it under $1000. So any suggestions would be cool.

As for the delay pedal I've had many and played many and none that I liked very much. But I do like the delay effect alot I just can't find one I like. I've played just about every boss echo/delay so if someone could give me some suggestions on a non boss echo/delay for around $120 it would be appreciated.

Me neither.

Do you have experience with that?

since you mentioned nevermore, get a used Peavey Triple XXX head. Jeff Loomis used one for a long time with the group, so that should get you really close. Otherwise, i like my Mesa DC head, and i play progressive/experimental rock, post-hardcore and metal, and it can cover all of those with ease.

If hes talking about playing guitar through a bass amp then yes ive heard of that a lot. (i.e. fender bassman) But then again if hes not then i have no idea what you guys are talking about and im gonna leave.

Is there anyway you could swing about $200 more? If you could, you get a Marshall Vintage Modern. That's a good amp, I'm not sure if it would push the metal you want, but, it's great for anything 70's/80's.

This is the cheapest Vintage Modern. ^^^

I personally didnt like the Vintage Modern series that much, and im pretty sure that it wouldnt suffice on the gain side. As he would need a semi high gain amp for proggressive metal.

All these suggestions are really helpful especially the bugera and peavey XXX. Thanks guys
#17
Also point just be known the XXX is a bright amp, though it is still a great choice. As for delays Digitech DD- anytying, MXR Carbon Copy, or EHX delay pedal that escapes my mind.

So if it was between a Bugera and peavy XXX (Bugera new and peavy used are around the same price according to ebay) which would be the better buy?
#19
the bugera for sure i think its great, much better IMO, the top end on the bugera isnt as harsh as the XXX, and i think the cleans arent as thin.

Why not a JCM900 for an amp?


I've thought about it but I have a friend who has one and I don't like it too much.
#23
I just got mine back from the shop after a very long time and I am soooo happy with it

What style of music are you playing?
#24
Sort of a mixed bag. I enjoy progressive metal like I said, pop punk like sum 41, David Gilmour type stuff, and like U2/angels and airwaves type stuff. But by far the most important would have to be the progressive.
#25
If you try the JCM900 again, make sure you turn your presence all the way off, and your treble to around 9 o clock.

It's a very bright amp.

Here's what I suggest.


Treble - 9 o clock
Mid - maxed out
Bass - maxed out
Presence - off
Gain - Noon
Volume - really loud haha
#26
I will try again, last I toyed with it I only had about 5 mins and it was with his POS Ltd M-100. So i'll give it another go.
#27
Make sure the guitar is good, too.

My JCM sounds like crap with guitars with bad pickups, etc.
#28
yea i know what you mean but thanks for the suggestion I'll give it another chance to redeem itself btw I think I'll be checking out the Bugera. Thanks for the suggestions all. They were much appreciated.
#29
For the delay, try out the new Digitech Hardwire series - The DL-8 delay/looper pedal is awesome, I'm getting it soon!
