So today is my birfday and I'm contemplating using my birfday funds on either a new guitar or amp.


The guitars that I had in mind (Must be extended range)
Agile AL-3000 Fretless les paul
Agile Septor 7 string ( Or ibanez 7 string for the same price)

My funds lie around the 400 range but I'd really like to have some money to spare later.

But I also noticed I could get a new amp which would grately improve my tone and render me slightly gig worthy.

Blackheart Stack
or
Peavey Valveking 112 (I found one on ebay for 300)


I've currently got a roland cube 30x.


What do I do?
I don't even shred

I'll say this: While I don't know much of anything about gear, it looks that, according to your sig, you have 4 guitars. And to my knowledge, while the cube sounds good, I'd go for a new amp

3 actually I'm gonna sell off my Jackson to fix the strat.


Yeah I was thinking amp too.


Is 50 Tube watts really really loud?

Pardon my stupidity but I heard the blackheart 5 watt stacks got really loud.

New amp. Get the VK. Youve got the guitars already, time to upgrade the amp.

The VK really isnt too loud, i was really nervous about that also when i got it, because i cant get too loud around here, but it actually can stay pretty quiet. It can also get loud when you need it to.

Exactly.

But it can stay really quiet too, and has a loudness button that you can flip on when you need it louder (honestly i havent noticed a huge difference with the loudness button on or off )

50 watts is good enough for gigging and waaaaaaaaay overkill for bedroom rocking

well if you crank the clean channel w. a wharehouse V30 its not TOOO loud.

Like when ever my parents are gone i crank it to 8 and it has the same amnt of gain that the lead channel has on 5? w.o the boost.

Its great, but if you just gonna be in your bed room, not playing w. a band get the black heart.

I'm prolly gonna be gigging soon
so I'll need the volume

of course I could always mic my amps...


Can anyone give me any speaker/tube mod suggestions?


Although my funds afterwards will probably go to an EQ and a distortion pedal.
