hi
i've got a crappy line 6 30w and was wondering if this amp (fender blues deluxe reissue)
would be worth saving up for?
i play blues, classic rock,hard rock and some metal.
if i brought this amp with a distortion pedal or the boss me50 would it be good for these styles.

thx

Yes right up to the metal part, then a sharp turn towards.... no.
Will you be gigging or just home practice?
New or is used ok?
What part of the world do you live in? nearest major city?
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

i dont play that much metal just a tiny bit of metallica iron maiden but that doesn't matter anyway
home practice maybe playing to an audience new probbably next year though
i live in england my nearest city being birmingham

I believe you can do a lot better for what you play for the money in the UK. I will let the guys on that side of the pond post suggestions for you based on that market. So bump for ya!

You'd do well to look at the peavey classic 30 and crate v series amps.

The two I mentioned could handle metal if you used an OD pedal in front. You might also like the blues jr, though I'm not sure on the prices over there and it will never do metal without a distortion pedal.

#9
me50 is a multi effects that does distortion/overdrive so that might help and i barely play metal so it doesn't matter if it doesn't do it that well
looking for something a bit more powerful than the jr
the peavy looks quite good i'll try them when i go and look.
thx

Honestly, I wouldn't waste your time with one of those. Unless you're using it to experiment and learn about the effects(in which case I suggest a cheapie) I would just pick up single effect pedals, much more versatile and customizable and much better sound quality. Most of those modeling pedals really don't do the real thing any sort of justice. The overdrive on the amps I've mentioned sounds infinitely better than what the boss can offer.

Wouldn't be bad, but I don't like how it does blues. It would be pretty damn hard to find one in england as well.

^Yeah, I was thinking laney would be worth a look, but I know zilch about them, thus I didn't bring them up.

#15
i'll probbably look at separate pedals then
my school which happens to be v.rich and has its own music school has laney amps every where and i know they get them somewhere in birmingham so i'll ask them
i played on a vc-30 the other day actually they are pretty nice but not quite the tone i'm looking for

edit: cant find an f-30 anywhere. no point in that then
may i just point out budget is up to £500 so ....

^If you look used you could get something pretty nice for that much. Go out and try everything, even if it's over budget.

"I play blues, classic rock,hard rock and some metal."

what percentage of each of those do you play? could you list a few bands you like to sound like for each of those genres?

can you get a blues deluxe for £500? i thought it was a bit more than that, but i could be wrong.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Hmm, I would think a VC30 would be great for you. Maybe a Tiny Terror? I'm not sure how much those go for there though, but I'm sure you could get it used. It would do those perfectly
#20
sorry is that vox vc30?
just need to look up

edit: sorry for my noobishness its laney isn't it
i'm not really thinking very well today.
i even played one of those at school a couple of weeks ago.

No, Laney, but the vox AC30 might be worth a look, not sure what they cost over there.

A Vox would be an AC30, Laney would be a VC or LC 30.

ye sorry about that
vox ac30 is definately out of my price range
i may be able to buy an ac30 amplug for about £30 right now until i get a new amp

me too. £450 isn't a bad price for the fender, but fenders are very much aimed at the clean/edge of breakup kind of thing. from what i can remember, the blues deluxe's overdrive is a lot nicer than the hot rod deluxe's (which is horrible), but the laney would still probably be better.

if you can try them both, of course, do that. the peavey classic 30 is worth a try too, it's a bit more expensive than the laney (and i prefer the laney, but you may not).
