If you list your budget, current gear, and what you want to sound like we can give some suggestions. "The best" is a really weak request, there's no way to answer that.
^ welcome to GGnA
You'll fit in here just fine
I thought about being sensible, and then i bought a hot rod deluxe last night.
I wouldn't mind but i live in a terraced house with neighbours who cant even stand the sound of my Greta.
My gear also lives in the living room where my little boy plays so yeah, practicality isnt my strong point.
That said my little un loves ye ole 6 string so f**k the neighbours.
None of the above.
Especially since you mentioned acoustic, check out the Peavey Vypyr VIP 3. It's 100W, but it's a 1x12 instead of a 2x12. Much much easier on the back.
In a nod to Cathbard, look at 18w marshall clones as well, they are phenomenal blues amps.
I really think you should have an 18w clone AND a 5E3 clone!!
Marshall JCM2000 DSL401
Peavey Ultra/JSX combo
Mesa single recto 1x12
You can get a head and cab like the DSL50/100 and a Marshall 1960 for under your budget
Model T has a 25w/100w switch.
don't make me post that batman cartoon, arby
the Hot Rod 2x12 is plenty fine unless your friend doesn't want you using your amp anymore.
to me it sounds like you may wanna look into an effects processor (pod hd500, digitech rp1000, zoom, kemper, axe-fx, etc) or a modeling amp (peavey vypyr, fender mustang, etc) as your budget is pretty small and this will most likely get you your best results.
since you amps are off stage and you don't really need any stage volume then i'd personally go with a mult-effects, probably a HD500. just bypass an amp altogether and go right into the board.
I thought it was a very, very silly idea that the thinderhorse Explorer comes with burstbuckers. Great pickups for blues, but not ideal for what is considered a 'metal' guitar.
I'd recommend Duncan Distortion in the bridge and a 59 in the neck. Very versatile combination. and the Distortion very closely replicates the Gibson 500T- the pickup the guitar SHOULD have come with stock imho.
Buy a new guitar.
It's not Dimes tone I'm after, just that raw pummeling crunchy lows.
dimebag was an awesome guitar player with an iffy (IMO) tone. His playing (IMO) is beyond reproach; his tone, not so much.
Oh, don't worry.. I'll be right back here asking about what tubes I should get after I get a tube amp. =P
A used Vox Valvetronix or Jet City might suite you better than the Vypyr but why would you want to 'fill a gym' with a $100 practice amp?
on a budget: proco rat, barber dirty bomb, mi audio crunch box are some that spring to mind.
Damn, Peavey should start paying this forum.
I run Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders in my tele. The bridge one is a ball tearer but the neck one is pretty meh. Not really a lot of twang to it but for what you are playing a QP bridge pup is what you want imo.
I think the Metal Core and Power Stack are honestly a lot better options as far as BOSS pedals go, but I don't really like BOSS distortion pedals in general
Yep it does help a bit but if i turn it to much i get some strange sounds coming out
Because some people dont give a rats ass what people think in the internet forums and make their own sound using their own ears? Honestly though, this isnt a first time MT-2 has been used by metal bands, even succesful ones. (At the Gates, In Flames...)
I knew of a bruutal local BM band that used two MT-2s in front of a dual recto, guitars tuned to B and it sounded horrendously evil.
Try it on a different circuit in your house, away from appliances.
Can you try it at a friends house? You may have dirty power at yours.
Have you tried a new guitar cable?
The Spandex Super Lead is 50W and goes to 11
My latest gigging rig sitting in the workshop.
Yes, all 6 speakers are hooked up. I rewired the combo to balance out the power distribution.
