I'm going to get an amp and multi effects pedal this month for my birthday.


I have a
Gibson Les Paul Studio
Ibanez RG2EX1

my amp is
Roland Microcube


So my birthday is this month and I'm getting a tube amp.
I like to play mostly stuff similar too

Avenged Sevenfold
Atreyu
Bullet for my Valentine
Trivium
Coheed and Cambria
Metallica


Once I get better I want to play stuff similar to
The Fall of Troy
Tera Melos
Damiera


I want to get a tube amp.
So far this is what I have decided on.

wut?

$800?

as kinda mentioned what is your total budget here? i would focus at least $650 - $700 of that if not all of it toward the amp and then maybe a few effects pedals if needed.

can you at least look at some used gear on your local craigslist and tell us what you see?

*gregs - let him do it vs you doing it for him*

save up for a JCM900, that will get you the sound of pretty much all the bands you listed, and if not your only 1 boost pedal away.
Gear:
Modded Steinberger Spirit (white) (SD-AH/EMG Select)
Modded Steinberger GP-2R (white) (EMG81/60)
Peavey XXL head
Hughes and Kettner Cream Machine
Hughes and Kettner Blues Master

Skip on the multi-effects and get an amp that can actually pull off the bands you like versus trying to mimic them...


Absolutely.

MultiFX units sound HORRIBLE thru a tube amp.

Analog stuff is the way to go.
