Ok go on whats called Craigslist. Check out amps on there. Its like an online garage sale. ALso i recommend the Fender Hot Rod Series. I got a Fender hot rod deville 212 and its ****in evil. Originally $800 got it for $400 on craigs. If your dead set on Black or orange go with orange, they got a better 70's crunch tone especially the terror.
bought a squier gold strat and a american made strat. Difference is one kicks the **** out of the other one. ya squiers are descent, there fun to play. they do have a tendency to fail internally. any secondary brand is gonna lack the time in building a fine instrument. idk just go american made so you can never complain again ha
pretty much the gt10 is everything you need in a pedal. i play a lot of live shows with this and has yet to fail me. Heat, cold, stomping this thing is a tank. the ez tone feature is pretty much your key to getting the tone you want. having a mesa rec with a marsh cab or a crate combo, it doesn't matter. this thing molds around with what you want. read up on it and check some tube videos, other than that my friend and i use this pedal religiously.
