I'd say Bugera V5. Small, quiet, and tube. He might not notice the difference between a tube amp and a SS amp, but if he's going to be playing for a long time/as he gets older, it would be a good idea to start him off with something less fail than a modelling amp. That way when he's older and better and wanting to upgrade, he won't make the mistake of spending all his money going from a Spider 15 to a Spider 60.
I don't want to buy a reverb pedal but it looks essential
EDIT: I have a laney AOR 50
IDK, but Groove Tubes are the most expensive you can buy at a shop around here, maybe they just want your friend's cash.
And you guys might be forgetting that I don't really want to deal with tube maintenance! is it hard to do stuff to make sure it works, because I've never done anything with a tube amp besides turning it on, and even that required a little instruction ("standby? what the ****?").
i just saw this and though "duhhhhhhh"
just use the amps you have now. if you go to a practise room they should have a PA there, and most good venues i played at had a PA at least
besides, dont worry too much if youve only just started your band...first bands normally go tits up...
all other things equal, 55 watts tube will produce the same volume level as 55 watts ss
answer the question of loudness, to put it into some perspective it will take 250watts to produce twice the volume as a 25watt amp though the 120 watts found in most of the Bugeras and the Peavey can still reach unholy sound levels though that's what the master volume knob is fobut tor
I looked at a fender frontman i think it was today, i liked it... opinions??
beat me to it. You should look at mesa and orange. My experience with the marshall 1960 is that it is pretty bright. I love that cab and its great, but if you want something that sounds darker get a mesa/orange/vader.
Line 6 Spider Valve 412VS 240W 4x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet
If you don't mind bumping up an extra hundred this is a great cab when it comes to tone , although it's not super light, the speakers (Not actual vintage Celestions btw) have an awesome warm tone once you break them in a little. They aren't too bad out of the box either, they'll eliminate you painful brights no problem. Have you tried maybe picking up a good tone pedal to dial in your sound? A lot of the time you can fix your problem by picking up sound modifying pedals to create your own sound, it's a much cheaper alternative. However, my vote goes to line6 for this cab, no pedal could get the sound this amp delivers.
anyone who thinks i stated that you can ONLY get metal tones out of a valve amp needs to re-read my post, i stated nothing of the like. and i also said that TUBESCREAMER (a.k.a. 'TS') on the clean channel of an amp won't get those metal/thrash tones.
now i'm just waiting for the 3rd person to come in and tell me i said what i didn't...these things always happen in 3s..
AxeFX.... thats all im going to say
and to the slashrocks kid, you really do need to do a bit more research before you start giving advice like that. You can get metal tones out of a line6 spider, or the clean channel of a tube amp with a distortion pedal. Your opinions are all fine and whatnot but you could really feed someone bad information. Just be careful with what you say 'round these parts .
^i assumed so, which is why i didn't go as far to bash ya...yet...lol. anyway, no harm done, i got respect for people who can admit when they misread things and get a lil carried away, cuz i've done it a couple times quite recently.
why hasn't the TS posted what amp he/she's talking about? this thread is starting to eat itself from the insides out.
For anyone with any sense of tone, yes, valve amps are the only way to go.
You just keep riding that majestic horse, son. We'll just admire from below with envy in our hearts, oh wise one.
I'm sorry I just saw this
Why do you think you know more than other guitarists? Because you have more "experience" and smoked weed at 14 and got clean in half a year? WTF?
Weed isn't even addictive and doesn't really ruin your life unless you're a moron..
Woah, woah, woah, woah....Woah
you did heroine?
Since people like Jaco Pastorius, Victor Wooten and Cliff Burton were born
Play Only Ash Remains by Necrophagist or a victor wooten solo and come tell me bass is easy.
I'm no guitar expert, but from the way you're talking (well, writing) it's pretty obvious you're another 14 year old ignorant douchebag that thinks he'sa guitar god, but in reality you suck..
You really don't know shit then, do you?
Holy shit! If that's the standard for a 14 year old, I was years ahead back then!
