Hey guys, so i've had my roland cube 30 for about 3 years and it never gave me any problems, my set up was... RG370dx--> dunlop classic crybaby --> boss me-50 --> roland cube 30

So i got my les paul studio (and a boss eq pedal) las week, and i feel the amp isnt doing justice to the guitar, i feel like the sound "breaks"...like i have said before i never had problems with the amp before, never dropped it, never let it out in the rain etc...

So i was thinking about buying me a new amp, 500$ tops ( i just got a new guitar) i want an amp thats natural sounding, no digital modeling bull**** I play everthing from les paul to metallica, lots for blues rock, souther rock, and just rock in general

So should i get a new amp? or just keep tweeking my cube 30?

Hm, it's a genuine Gibson?


That roland just isn't doing justice. Even if it's the epiphone model. With most solid state, it will make alot of guitars sound the same. If you invest in a nice tube amp, it will really bring out the characteristics of the guitar and make it shine.

yeah genuine gibson...

Well yeah i guess i can save up for a nice amp, but im not planning on getting something like a 2000$ head or anything, id rather get a tube combo, not in that price range though

A Fender Hot Rod Deluxe will fit the bill for blues, classic rock,southern rock but the overdrive might too weak for you but with pedals I'm sure you can push it. Do you want a good clean that you can build off of with pedals or a good distorted overdrive?

Can you give us an idea or how much bigger? And is the budget bigger or just $500? You would probably be fine with a 30 watt tube combo. Can you get a used peavey classic 30 or used crate V3112 in Caracas?

bigger as in 30 watts... i guess in the future i could work out more than 500, but thats all i have now, well i was planning on shipping one from the US but just noticed its too ****ing expensive because an amp is so heavy

Here the music shops are very limited so i'll see what they've got and then start a thread comparing whatever amps i see there

Thanks guys!
