ok so i need some advise i wanna get a bugera 333xl 212 for christmas but since i bought my spider a year ago their like "no u dont need a new amp now" Now being the key word. So does any one have some advise of how i should go about persuading them to let me buy the amp. and for the record im gonna be payin for like 70%-80% of the $700 price tag so they aren't paying for the whole thing.

I agree with iceman. But you don't need a new amp, you want a new amp. If your parents won't help you buy it just wait until you get the money.

You could just suck it up. Deal with the fact that you're parents won't shell out a "measly" $500 for an amp. Do some odd jobs around the neighbor, show them you deserve it.

What do you need the new amp for? Practice or are you actually in a band?

im in a band. and i want the amp cause when im at GC i play thru spiders and i realized that with spiders u cant tell the dif between a gibby SG standered and an epipi SG special cause the amp covers up all the tone from the guitar so last time i went i played from a tube amp and could tell even the smallist dif in tone of the 2 SGs. so now i hate my spiders sound so im playin my acoustic more cause of that.

my parents were the same way with me. I had a crappy 10w Dean Starter amp, I told them I wanted a new one, they kept comin back with (you already have an amp, why do you need another?) so finally said screw it, got a job, and bought one myself. Same happened with the guitar until my dad finally bought me my Agile AL 2000 last Sunday lol. well I do hav to pay him back

I think you have to work out, that money is actually worth something. My parents stopped buy me stuff no questions asked when I was 10. Since then I have always had to cover over 50%, no matter how pricey it is. Luckily my Dad is a guitar player, so he gets it. If you can cover 80% of it anyway, just cover the rest.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...

Its called times are tough allover. Im sure your parents see it as they have far better things to spend their money on right now. And they also see it as less than a year ago you begged and irritated to get the amp your using now. They know if they give in now in 8 months it will be another amp because you dont like this one. Suck it up and mow grass etc for the cash.

Sig What?
#20
You're covering 80%? Just sell your spider to make up for the rest.

You're not gonna hear a bit of difference with new pups...Pups should be the very last thing to up, IMO. Save your money and get a new amp first.

yea, i know that. i'm actually thinking about a little blackheart 5 watt cause i figured that would work in a dorm, but i just bought myself a nice pedal that works with headphones, and my parents bought me this spider just last year and they dont understand why i now want a tube, so i dont want to offend them either. therefore, im waiting and doing what i can now, and then buying a tube at Christmas or maybe summer.

Ask your mom why she has more than one pair of shoes.

Ask your Dad why he doesn't still drive a junker like his first car was.

Ask them both why you don't just drive a race car on the street to the track. (Practice with your spider, save your tube life for band practice/gigs)

Basically make a ****ton of analogies about starting out with something substandard then working your way up to something good, or having dual ownership of two varying grades of things to be more economical. Alternatively, swallow your pride and say you were wrong when you bought your Spider.

hahaha ya dude he's 14 alright.

Anyways, maybe your amp can have some unfortunate accident?

just ask for some money, and use it to buy the amp. holy shit its not hard
98% of people have read that stupid 98% teens and alcohol sig, put this in your sig if you like getting hammered.

Thats it.

ya i get this all the time...but im almost sixteen, so i pull the old
"but this is the last time i will get to spend money on personal gain, not to support myself in the cruel twisted darkness of the world" *tear*.... ←←← or SUMTHIN like that...not really

anyway, i would recommend turning your amp up real loud,
putting it to a real ****ty confused messy crunchy setting...
then when your rents complain, just say "well this is the best i can get with THIS THING....guess you have to live with it for awhile"
