I own an Ibanez RG421MOL with INF 3 & 4 pickups. I want to replace the bridge pup with something better. I play through my Fender Mustang I for practice and a BOSS GT-1 effects processor with my band.
My budget is <100$, and the sound I prefer is upper mids-trebly like the Countdown to Extinction album for both rhythm and lead (though I like the scooped Metallica rhythm sound too). I am not looking in the used market, I want new pickups in this range.
So far I've been thinking about the Seymour Duncan JBs and Invaders. I have a few questions:
Is it a bad idea to change only the bridge pickup? It's what I use most of the time, I don't have too many issues with my neck pickup.
I have a 5-way pickup selector, I'm probably going to get the pickup installed by a professional, but anything I need to keep in mind while choosing a pickup?
Is it a lot tougher to get a pickup installed in such a config? I have no experience in guitar electronics, should I try it?
I have an old (but strong) Marshall Lead 12 mini stack. It has only high and low inputs and only a single Line out. Is there a cost effective way of doing this rather than buying and carrying around a dozen FX pedals?
Soo I'm already ordering it tomorrow and I'm a little paranoid, because I probably won't change this amp in at least 5 years, so I read some reviews and most of them were CLOSE to perfect, this CLOSE part is what bugs me.
I just want to ensure that those are resistant as Peavey amps are famous for, and that that it will sound smooth when highly distorted.If you guysd could just confirm that for me then I shall already be playing the amp next week
thanks once again, and sorry for the bothering :p
I haven't tried the other two but I think the epi is generally considered to be pretty decent. (the others may be too)
the big problem is that, in addition to quality, you have different styles of guitars which some players love and some players hate. e.g a custom shop fender strat is objectively a better guitar than an epi les paul standard, but if you hate strats subjectively it's worse. so there's that confounding factor in addition to everything mentioned above.
and it gets even more complicated than that when you think about things like the neck shape etc..
monwobobbo wow man, I had overlooked these, I thought I would see only the VIP 1 wich doesn't meet my needs and the VIP 3 wich is double the price of the envoy, but I can get this VIP 2 with 12 speakers for a not so stabby price, is it really good?The VIP 2?
monwobobbo damn that's a bummer , but thanks for the response man!
Soo I'm finally getting a new amp and through lots of research I found these two amps that I want to choose from:
Peavey Envoy 110 and Blackstar ID:Core 40
I plan on practicing at home mostly, but i want to do some gigs someday and even play with a band, so I want to buy an amp that I won't need to change for quite some time
I want to learn some bluesy stuff, but I'll probably just play metal all the way
About budget, these amps kind of already exceeds what I have to spend, so saving money for a better amp is kind of a problem when these amps are already expensive enough in my country (and there is also a problem of availability on amps here)
About pedals, i have a G1XON, so if the amp reacts nicely with a multi effect pedal that would be nice
So if any of you could give me a help with choosing the right one I would be really, really gratefull.

Have you considered abstinence, which is not only 100% safe and effective, but also guaranteed to get you into the Kingdom of Heaven?
Ippon Also I find Ibanez Blazer Stratocaster (S-S-S) 1981 made in Japan too for 370$, what do you think?
I'd say that still is a really good price for an American Special. Just a quick look on Ebay and I don't see one that's selling for less than $700 used. If it's in good shape and everything works, i'd still get it.
Fender told me on the phone that it's a 60th anniversary. What do you mean by the screws? The ones holding the bridge to the guitar?
If it has 6, then pass. If it has 2, then it's a deal?

Agree to disagree, I suppose. I've yet to hear of "modern tech" that can make you feel your skull vibrate without it being loud. I'm in a sludge band (for lack of a better term), think Melvins, Neurosis, Kowloon Walled City.
I was dumb in the past but I have nice musician plugs now, I'm confident I'm not destroying my hearing anymore. I work with a bunch of audiologists and haven't had any new hearing loss since using them.
I get that it's complete madness but it's what we do. Most venues I've played have been totally fine with it, worst I get is the occasional exasperated expression from the sound guy. I played out in Chicago recently and had the smallest rig there if that gives any perspective on the types of shows we end up at. It's not practical, it's overkill, and I wouldn't want it any other way.
I'm not saying the average guitarist needs more than 20-50watts but whenever the issue of volume pops up I feel the need to chime in and mention that there are certain situations where even 100watt tube amp opened up isn't enough. That's obviously the exception not the rule. I promise I'm not trying to be some tough guy with tons of amps, I've seen plenty of bands play quieter with smaller amps and sound great, but for what I do you gotta push a fuckload of air.
So as not to totally derail things, with solid state I'd always prefer more headroom so I would get the highest wattage you can. You might not ever need the extra volume but a cranked solid state isn't going to sound better than one turned up part way.
I'm using 2 4x12s, sometimes with an additional 2x12. I don't think number of speakers or their positioning is much of a factor here. My practice space definitely isn't the best acoustically but I've played there long enough to know what's caused by the room and what isn't.
Don't get me wrong, the vast majority of people shouldn't need what I do. We're a stupid loud band for better or worse.
I'm running 130watts, I can keep up with the drummer alone no problem but add in a cranked SVT+8x10 and I run out of headroom real quick. Distracted isn't too bad but pristine cleans are a problem when the power amp is driven so hard.
100w solid state wont be loud enough with a loud drummer
WHAT WAS IT LIKE RIDING DINOSAURS TO SCHOOL GRAMPS HAHAHAHAHAHA
