Get an Alesis 8 track USB Powered Mixer. It's an 8 track mixer but it's also an audio interface for upto 8 channels at once for your computer! You can get it for about $350 I think, they're fairly new though.
Theres no doubt about it. EVERYONE you ask will say the AD30VT. Its kind of quality vs quantity, except the AD30VT has almost as much quantity as the Behringer in terms of effects and modelling but also has the simplicity, quality build and a real tube Pre-amp.

(Google the acronyms if you cant work them out)
Dont forget the Noodle cups and energy drinks and have good LAN!
Once i had this really long whispy one, like 2 or 3 inches on my left shoulder and i left it for a couple of months and kept noticing it and eventually i think i pulled it out and it hasnt come back since.
I had this weird single black one that kept growing on the back of my hand, it wasnt long but it was really dark.
Half the people who posted dont seem to get what D Standard is.... D Standard is where every string is tuned down 2 semi-tones from standard tuning.
I cant think of anything other than stuff of Children Of Bodom's first few albums. Check out: Everytime I Die, Downfall, Children Of Bodom(the song BY the band), Silent Night Bodom Night and Hatcrew Deathroll.
Also, try playing songs written in Standard tuning in D Standard to make them song heavier and try adapting Drop D songs to D Standard.
The difference between a bunch of guys in their 30's playing to a bunch of drunks who dont even care if the band are there or not and let's say Matt Heafy shredding it up to thousands of people is that Trivium are better businessmen.
Talent can only take you so far, you have to market your music properly, play as many gigs as you can, send Demos off to EVERYONE, be it record labels, music magazines, newspapers, managers, everyone! Team up with bands in the same genre as you, get people to wear your merchandise etc etc.
I held a movie a couple of weeks ago and we watched the Hills Have Eyes and in the beginning credits where it shows all those photos of mutant babies, I couldnt stop laughing! Lucky my girlfriend was on my lap or I'd have been on the floor
Quote by TubzyX
does anyone else ( in australia) laugh at those rape ads? not the ones with the women the ones with the guys going
"she said stop but i knew she wanted more" or "i hit her once but she knows she deserves it"
im not laughing at the rape side of things just the what the guys say
or maybe im just sick
Now that you mention its funny how stupid those guys really are.
Also, numerous people in this thread have been talking about tube-driven amp distortion a distortion pedal and while I do completely agree with that, what about some of the tube pedals and pedalboards:
Vox Tonelab LE Zoom G7.1ut and G9.2tt Blackstar Pedals
I think I win best first time. Until 2 days ago the most I'd ever had was numerous hello and goodbye hugs from numerous lady friends.
At the beginning of the day we knew each other and had spoken on msn, myspace, phone etc and in the 5 hours we were together I'd had my first kiss followed by something like 40 or 50 more, not including Eskimo or French kisses!!
Yeah go with the 50 for sure and make sure it gets micced when you play. I've seen the new models of the Valvetronix coming out in the UK, the XL series, more gain blah blah blah I'd try and get my hands on one of those.
If these amps weren't valvestate I'd grab the new Cube series, namely the 30x, so many effects!! I still plan to get one for recording and use a tube before the amp
One of my friends has a pair of red Sennheisers that go behind your neck, so loud you can use them as speakers and really good bass. I looked them up, their about $120AUD. Just so everyone knows the Australian dollar buys around 0.90 cents USD, meaning Australia pays a bit more
I don't know about second hand but the cheapest all tube amp head I've seen is the Spider Valve coming in around $200 cheaper than a Marshall DSL 50. But I'd check around ebay, apparently one of my friends got a DSL 50 for $400AUD from ebay
My friends have all gone wireless in their band and they all got wireless packs for around $400 USD or so. I've heard AKGs little little ones that are black and orange are very dodgy, don't know the name
