20-40 watt gigging guitar amp. Under $1000?

Hello ladies and gents.

I'm in search of a really good tube combo amp. Looking to spend between 600-900. I play all types of rock. I'm just looking for some suggestions so I can locate these in shops and play around on them. Not into super high gain(peavey, line 6) I'd prefer boutique distortion from Mesa, orange, Marshall, or other like brands.

I play a fender roadhouse deluxe.

Thanks in advance!

Bugera has recently come to my attention, So with a bit of research I've found the reviews are pretty good, Although it only takes a couple of gear snobs to knock the rating down on any piece of equipment, so always take the reviews with a grain of salt, But by looking at the price and features my guess is there taking a jab at the big boys in the game, Although I'm just looking at them, I already have too much gear, if I were to bring another amp home there's no telling how long I'd be sleeping on the couch. But that little BC30 caught my eye. Http://www.musiciansfriend.com/amplifier…
Might go check it out at Guitar Center, and sneak it in if I like it. Oh no honey that's Dave's amp. Dave's not married so that could work out pretty well.

Questions and Answers

Which Guitar Amp Should I Get?

I have been playing guitar for almost 6 years and its time for me to upgrade to a tube amp. I am looking for an amp that i can find for 500-600 bucks new or used. I play mostly classic rock, blues, and jazz. I want an amp that i can use to get a Clapton sound, or a John Mayer sound, or a bluesy sound. I don't need an amp that has crazy distortion, but i would like one with a decent overdrive channel. I have been looking at the Fender Hot Rod Deville. Is this a good amp for me? Please offer advice and suggestions for amps i should get. Thanks.

Posted by Mr. Cool
[display_name id=”1″]

The Deville is a good amp for that type of stuff. Eric Clapton has used many amps in his years, and most of them are thousands of dollars. Some more affordable one though are the Vox AC-30, and the Fender Blues Deluxe. John Mayer uses the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and the Blues Deluxe, among other gear that will blow the bank. Jet City amps are good all around amps, that are made by Soldano and are very nice. Do some research and watch reviews and demos online before you get an amp. I have bought a lot of gear on Craigslist, for good prices. You might want to think about looking there for an amp before you spend full price on a new one.

Questions and Answers

Buying Electric Guitar (Laguna?)?

Im looking at this package here : Http://www.guitarcenter.com/Laguna-Ultim…

I am beginner electric player, I've played only acoustic.

And after reading reviews about the amp inside the pack, etc, it sounds pretty good. I want to play a wide range of music… Looking for a nirvana/fender sound but i am also looking for other sounds like Guns and Roses, and i think slash uses les paul which has humbucklers if im not mistaken, which is i guess kinda similar to this guitar?
So do you guys think this guitar in the package would kinda sound both like a fender and a les paul? I heard laguanas sound somewhere in between. Im too broke to buy 2 different guitars. I heard someone play the laguna on youtube and it sounded really raspy, but i dont know if thats just because of the tone he is on or what, because I dont think that sound would be very great for like sweet child o mine or something. I'm just very mixed up at the moment as to what i want… Does anyone have this package that can give some review?

Posted by The Purple Dolphin
[display_name id=”1″]

It looks fine. Although, Fenders are known for single coil pick ups, usually. And this one doesn't have any. If you can find a similar package where the Laguna has some single coils to go along with the humbucker, that might be the best bet. But if you can't, you're probably fine with this. I think many of the guitars Kurt played might have been Fender but they had humbuckers?

It's hard to predict exactly how a guitar will sound, but a friend had a S S H Laguna(two single coils, one humbucker) and it had a great hard rock sound when cranked..but when it was clean, it was nice..different, kind of..Fender-y.

One thing I'll say..a great deal of your sound will come from the tone you shape, your EQ. When I started I mistakenly looked at EQ like on a stereo. But then when I looked up how some musicians would adjust their bass/middle/treble I realized how much I was missing out on. Everybody knows about the Metallica thing now with the "Scooped Mids", and that's just one possibility. I'd almost recommend an EQ pedal for more options, but now that I see the guitar package comes with a Line 6 amp, I can say you probably won't need one. With all the digital amp settings, you'll have all the EQ options you need I'm sure. In any case, play with the amp models and the EQ a LOT to see what you like. Some things will work better for certain tones than others. Even if you had a crappy guitar/amp, control over EQ can redeem the tone sometimes.

But yeah, this looks like a great start.

Affordable guitar tube amps?

I am looking for an affordable guitar tube amp or tube simulator amp combo.
Im not looking for a effect processor or pedal .
Music style is metal , rock

By affordable I mean under $500.
So whats out there?

Posted by greg x
[display_name id=”1″]

Hello there,

I am with Lucasman on this one. I like the Jet City amps. For metal that would be a good choice. Problem is, it's only 20 watts (for under $500). The more powerful model is over $500. Don't know of a true tube amp with a lot more power for less than $500.

For rock and blues the Fender Blues Jr would be a good choice. Don't think much of it for metal. It also is a low power amp.

If you can go with tube simulation, the solid state B-52 100 watt head as about as good a tube simulation sound as their is.

What do you recommend for a affordable guitar Mini Amp?

I have a Fender Strat (standard) and I plan on buying a mini amp for it. Problem is I would like to buy one prefrebly under 50-55 dollars, and I haven't had the best luck. I am aware of the Fender Mini Deluxe amp however it runs on batteries, and not an outlet.

What are some good mini amps out there that I can purchase with an affordable price? (list the actual model name if you can)

Thanks.
I will mainly be using it for practice in my room and not in a band of any sort.

I have a Marshall MS-2 mini-amp. It fits your price range, and is comparable to the Fender mini-amps. Of the mini-amps I've tried in that price range (mainly Marshall and Fender), I couldn't tell much difference in sound or quality. I wouldn't expect a great tone out of one of these, though. They're more of a novelty than anything. Most run on one 9-volt battery, but all that I've seen have an optional AC power supply. It won't be a very loud amp (don't expect to be able to play over drums or horns), but it is really handy for practice. If you want a more serious amp which will deliver real tone in a compact form, try the Roland mini-cube. It will cost quite a bit more than the other mini-amps, and isn't quite as portable, but it sounds much better.

Online. I know that you said that you are uncomfortabe ordering online but for the amount of money you wish to spend this is your best bet to get the biggest bang for your buck! I would at least mention this amp to my local music store and see what they will do for you. Sometimes if you mention that you are thinking about ordering it online they will "magically" lower the prices for you. Just don't let them know how much money you have to work with or they will try to get every penny that they can.

Electric guitar + amp?

Hey, I'm looking for a really low-priced guitar that includes an amp. I'm alright at playing, just a beginner so I'm not looking for anything really nice, something simple. I also don't need a big amp, maybe even just like 10 watts. Does anyone know where I could go or even better, a site I can look at. Right now I'm checking out costco and their stuff. ( Http://www.costco.com/Browse/ProductSet…. ) looking for something like this, not sure if its good or not though. So if anyone has any suggestions where I should look let me know!(:

Please, please, please….do yourself a favor and don't throw your money away on a guitar from Costco, Walmart, Best Buy,Target, amazon.com or any other non-music dealer. Even a beginner needs an instrument that meets certain minimum levels of quality and playability. Beginners are often reluctant to spend much on a guitar for fear that they might not be able to learn to play it. Since you apparently already know how to play, you shouldn't be worrying about that. A cheap box store guitar will play horribly and sound bad.

The Squire by Fender Affinity Stratocaster is a good choice for a guitar. This is not to be confused with the cheaper Squier "Bullet" Strat. The Affinity is reasonably priced and yet good enough quality that it will take you awhile to outgrow it. I gig with a guy who uses one. Http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/produ…

For an amp, you can get a small practice amp. If and when you decide to play out with other musicians, you'll need a bigger amp. A Roland Cube would be one good choice for a practice amp: Http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/produ…

Guitar amps are as easy or as hard as you want to make it.

I've had really good luck putting a Shure SM57 and a Sennheiser MD-421 right up on a speaker, about half-way between the edge and the cone. A nice large diaphragm condensor about 5-10' back to pick up the room is a good addition as well.

I've also been using the Sennheiser e609's on my guitar live lately and been really happy. I've got a session later this week that I'm going to try those on.

If you're recording very distorted guitar tracks, then do yourself a favor and record a clean track directly from the guitar (using a DI box). That way, if you need different tonal options, you can re-amp the track and not have to re-cut it. Sometimes just adding a touch of that clean track back into the mix will give the notes the definition they need.

Good luck.

Questions and Answers

Whats the difference between Practice, Combo, Head and Cab guitar amps?

Im just looking into buying a guitar amp. But I've only just started guitar and i have no idea what these different types do. They just popped up when i clicked on guitar amps on a website. Thanks :)

Posted by >:D
[display_name id=”1″]

Hello there,

1. Practice amps. This name is commonly used on small amps that in reality are not practical for use. The name practice I guess means you can use them in your room by yourself, but they are not suitable for any other purpose. These amps generally have 10 to 25 watts of power and have 6 or 8 inch speakers. The small speaker will made you sound thin and tinny. At 10 or 15 watts, the amp does not have enough power to handle gain and distortion. The amp runs out of head room under that load. I would not recommend a practice amp to anyone.

2. Combo. This means the amplifier and the speaker(s) are in the same cabinet. All small practice amps are combo amps because the amplifer and speaker are in the same cabinet. Combo amps can be as large as a 150 watt 2×12.

3. Head. A head is an amplifier in a cabinet by itself. You need to connect a head to a speaker cabinet to hear the sound. Never use a head that is not connected to a speaker cab. That will damage the head.

4. Cab. Short for speaker cabinet. This is a stand alone cabinet that contains only speakers. You generally have a head connected to the cab. But you can use a speaker cab with a combo amp. For instance you have a 1×12 combo amp and want a wider sound. So you plug the a line into the output (external speaker) jack on the combo amp and run that line to a speaker cab. On most combo amps when you do that, it cuts the sound to the internal speaker and runs it to the external speaker cab.

Other factors to consider.
Effects. Some amps have several built in effects. Some have none. For beginners, I think it is a good idea to get an amp with some built in effects so you do not have to buy separate effects pedals. You can tie up hundreds of dollars in effects pedals. Amps with distortion, delay, reverb, chorus and flanger effects are a good idea for a beginner. If you spend $50 on each effect pedal (that is very cheap) an amp with those 5 built in effects will save you $250 in pedals.

Modeling amps. These are solid state amps that have digital programs to simulate the sounds of various classic amps. For a beginner a modeling amp, is a good idea.The amp is versatile in that it does many different amp sounds and this is an inexpensive way to get the sound of some very expensive amps.

I believe the 1×12 combo amp is a good beginner amp. The 12 inch speaker will give you a richer fuller sound than the small speakers in the little practice amps. You only sound as good as your speaker, no matter what guitar you play. I have never heard a lousy speaker in a 1×12 combo amp from Fender, Vox, Marshall, Peavey, Crate, or Line 6. All are slightly different sounding amps; but all are good. 1×12 combo amps usually start at 30 watts and go up. At 30 watts you have enough power to play with others. There is more to the amp's power rating than just how loud it gets. It takes more power in an amp to handle gain and distortion. At 30 watts, the amp will handle gain and distortion without running out of head room.

A good choice for a beginner amp is the Fender Mustang II, 40 watt 1×12 combo. It is a digital modeling amp with several built in effects.

Ok so i always wanted to learn guitar. This game came out called rocksmith. Its supposed to teach you guitar and what not. The review were all great and i was planning on getting it when i have more money. Anyway i never even touched a guitar before but do you guys have any advice on a starter guitar?

If it helps i will probably be playing rock music.

Playing rock music means you'll want an electric guitar, and a small budget means an inexpensive guitar such as an Epiphone (Gibson) or Squier (Fender). You'll also need an amp and a few other accessories.

If you know an experienced guitar player see if they'll help you find something on Craigslist, a pawn shop, or a music store that sells used gear.

Can I use this amp with this guitar?

I told my parents I would like a new guitar for Christmas. I found the one I want and its an acoustic-electric. Can I use this guitar with this amp, or does it even matter what amp I use? And what chord do I use to plug the guitar into the amp?

I have another question. I have a guitar strap already and I cant use it because I have a classical guitar. Do all acoustic guitars have the peg at the bottom? Does this one?

Posted by mosdef
[display_name id=”1″]

The guitar you've chosen can be plugged through any guitar amp. You can use a standard guitar cable, and it will have pegs for your strap. BTW, you can buy screw-in pegs for any guitar very inexpensively.

There are better choices for an amp. Do you realize how wimpy that amp is? It's 9.75 inches high and runs off a 9v battery! It will just about fit in the palm of your hand. Your acoustic-electric will make more noise unplugged. Which brings up another point: a "practice amp" is really unnecessary with an acoustic-electric. That's what the "acoustic" part of the guitar is all about. You only need an amp if you're going to gig and need to be heard over a band. Get the guitar but save your money for a real amp…something in the 50-100 watt range.

Better still, forget the amp and put the extra money into a slightly better guitar. For $20 more, you can get an Ibanez with a solid spruce top…..http://www.guitarcenter.com/Ibanez-AW30LECE-ARTWOOD-SERIES-Acoustic-Electric-Guitar-104600218-i1173602.gc It'll give you a much better acoustic sound. You realize that if the specs don't specify "solid" wood that it's plywood veneer, right?

When you have the need to be amplified, you can either plug into the PA system or get a powerful amp. Expect to spend at least a couple of hundred on that……but not till you need it.

Type:
I'd say look for a solid state amp. Tube amp would be awesome, but they are way more expensive.

Brand:
I like Marshall, some Fender, and some VoX amps. I'm not too fond of Line 6 or Crate. They seem to focus more on effects than quality. Personally Marshall is always a safe bet. It's quality and comes with a wide range.

Watts:
All amps you look at will say a number next to them. This is how much power they have. The Higher the number, the more power. A 50 watt is about as small as you want to go for performing in small places, like a church. But no need to go beyond a 100. 15-30 watts are good practice amps.

Here's a nice one under $400, a 50 Watt Marshall

If that's too high. Then look at the 15 or 30 watt Marshall.

Questions and Answers

Guitar Amp Question?

A microphone into a Crate 10 watt amp. Thoughts and how clear will it sound?

Posted by yoyoyo
[display_name id=”1″]

If you plug a microphone into a guitar amp it will not sound good no matter what mic you use.

Guitar amps have a very limited frequency response, far lower than that required to accurately reproduce natural sounds like voice. Full spectrum audio is generally considered to be 20 Hz to 20 kHz; Very few guitar amps produce frequencies much above 8kHz, and their response curve is exceedingly non-linear. Wide frequency and linear response are the prime characteristics of good sound… That is good natural sound. Guitarists like the sound of severely attenuated highs and radically non-linear response. That's what compensates for the magnetic picukps

It is highly unlikely that a microphone will "blow" the amp or speakers. The sound may be distorted, which is never good for speakers. The sound may be weak, which may inspire you to turn the amp up too high. That too is a bad idea. But, unless you are totally deaf, you will notice a problem and stop before you do any damage.

If you are using a HIGH impedance mic ( the cheap kind with a 1/4 inch "phone" plug) there are no impedance issues to worry about. The real issue is how you set the gain on the amp. Guitar amps, (especially cheap beginner amps like a 10 watt Crate,) are designed to distort easily. Setting the gain too high will distort any signal, guitar, mic or other. That might be desirable if you are miking a a blues harp. You might want that distortion. Another reason you might want distortion is if you want to intentionally distort your voice. (Some kids think that is so cool!)

That amp produces so little power that you probably can't blow the speaker no matter how much distortion you use. If you ever decide to use good equipment though, remember that distortion is the enemy of speakers, because it makes them work too hard and cool inefficiently. Excess work and heat lead to premature failure.

A professional low impedance mic, ( the kind with three prong "XLR" connectors) is low impedance, and so, will have even less likelihood of damaging the amp. The amp could damage the microphone though!

High impedance means that the signal requires more power to travel down the cable. It does NOT mean that the signal is high or hot or louder.

Besides, if you were trying to use a low impedance pro mic, you would have to use an adapter to switch the XLR connection to a 1/4 inch phone plug.

For future reference, most audio equipment is designed to be "idiot proof." Gear that is supposed to connect to certain other types of gear, always has the matching connector. Things that are NOT supposed to be connected ( say… A power amp to a preamp) have completely incompatible connections. So, it is unlikely that you could damage anything by just trying it.

Of course, some idiots are more persistent than others. If you ever want to try hooking one piece of gear to another, you probably can, IF it comes with the right connector. If it does not have the right connector, don't.

Cheap intermediate guitars.?

Good but cheap? You can spend many months to find appropriate good but cheap instrument. Good intermediate guitar will cost you about 500 – 600 bucks. You can keep the gdec amp. It's fine. Fender Highway one will be good for that price range. But soon you can realize that Highway one isn't enough because it's not the best in this price range.
Perfect instrument for high quality practice would be Fender American Special (800 – 900$), Fender American Standard (1000 – 1150$), Les Paul Studio (800 – 900$), Gibson Studio (800 – 900$), and many more (can't help you more). These all are American made and sound very very very good.

Bass Guitar Amp?

Hey y'all.

I jus bought a bass guitar (one of those cheap ones, yes i know, but its im absolute beginner).

Does anyone know of any good amps (preferbly below £30), and where i can get them from. (in UK).

Posted by bass player

Because bass is more powerful than 6 string guitar, you need a purpose built bass amp, you are not going to get one for less than £30.

There are many different makes, like Marshall, Fender etc, but the best amps that are purely made for bass are: Trace Elliot, Hartke, and Warwick.

They are all expensive (you could easily pay £1000 for one) but they are worth it if you really want to feel the bass- they are the ones that will make the floor boards shake!

Okay, so i got around $200 to work with. I don't care about brand names I will take a first act as long as it has a decent sound. The guitar I am going to use it for the time being is an epiphone les paul. I want this guitar to last me a long time. I want some form of reverb, chorus, flanger, delay or whatever on it. I just want to know what do you all think is a decent amp to get. Thanks a lot ^^
to make it clear i have a guitar already for it.. I was just borrowing it from a friend and he took it back and i just dont have an amp now.

Nooo, you don't want a first act LOL

your best bet for $200 is the Line 6 Spider III 30 amp.

I have the spider III 15 practice amp and this is basically the same except twice the power.
I tried every amp they had and the Line 6 blew them all away. Best effects and best distortion. There are 4 separate channels and 4 more user presets, plus you can tweak the factory settings and save that too. Plus you can get a footswitch to change the channels, the only drawback of the 15 is no footswitch.
