K, so I've been looking at upgrading my amp after already getting my new guitar. On musiciansfriend, crate v series tube amps are on sale. Anyone have experience with these? Link to the one I'm thinking of: Crate V Series 33W 2x12 Tube Amp

btw, I play rock and metal, along with some blues. I'm thinking about getting a distortion pedal to go with it, so relatively cheap, but good suggestions are welcome.

Buy it.

Get a metal muff.

Wash

Rinse

Repeat.

Yeah i have it and it's great, awesome cleans. I need to buy a distortion pedal though, i'm probably getting the metal muff but i need to try it out

Also: Change the speakers.

Or: Get the head + cab, and then change the speakers

And: It depends on the metal. I can play some mean Drop B stoner metal on it. Sounds pretty good.

And maybe the tubes too, the stock sovteks could be better. I plan on getting new tubes after a distortion pedal and maybe switching out the speakers one day

I has the same question. I'm into gilbert. Like you wouldn't believe. So it would need cleans crunch and a little RacerX shred. Would one a these plus a ts808 or something do it for me?? or maybe a fulltone OCD? thanks!

Gilbert is a bad riff writer.

If he want's to do that, I guess he should get a compressor or a XXX.
