How much would you like to spend? about 800 pounds What's the absolutely most you will spend? 1400 pounds How many years have you played guitar? 2 years with a teacher, a lot self-taught, but i don`t know many technical terms Do you seek tone quality or versatility? quality first, if possible versatility is also needed What is your primary guitar (include pup type and configuration)? i have a gibson les paul traditional 2011 (factory settings) and i`m going to buy a telecaster this july What style(s) of music do you primarily play? Rock and most of its derivatives (blues, heavy metal, classic rock.) i just don`t like modern rock What one guitarist do you wish to emulate? jimmy page/ randy rhoads are my favorites, i can`t choose 0_o Do you prefer to plug straight in, or will you be using effects? * If you plug straight in, you will likely require 2 or more channels * If you use effects, you may prefer an effects loop i`m open to that, maybe will use some effects on the future What will be the primary use of the amp? bedroom/living room jam with friends (guitars only) jam with friends (guitars, bass, drums, etc.) gigs (small venues) gigs (large venues, is mic'ing available?) i need something that can do all of that, maybe with an attenuator or something.. Do you prefer a combo or head/cabinet (and why)? i was thinking about it, i can`t buy the head cabinet on the trip, only the head, and then i would buy a cabinet here in brazil, because it`s kinda easy to bring only the head, but if i bring a combo it have to be reasonably light What amplifier(s) do you have/had and why do you want a change? i have a fender blues junior that i love, but i need something that have gain, and gets dirty, but beautiful sounding i am not going to trade the blues junior, i`ll keep it for the clean sounds Please list five amps (minimum) that you have researched (if you can't do this, you're not serious) Marshall 1959RR Randy Rhodes Signature Head pros: MY IDOL!/LOUD!/ and it`s good a pretty close plexi sound cons: TOO LOUD/ may be impossible to play at home levels? Marshall JVM 410H 100W Head/combo pros: very versatile from what i`ve seen, and tone quality is appealing cons: Loud?/ kinda of fake sounding, IDK... Orange Rockerverb 50 MKII Combo 112/head pros:awesome dirty channel/ pretty good looking, and i can change the valves pretty easily. cons: kinda heavy, kind of a one trick pony maybe? Orange TV50 H Thunderverb 50w Guitar & Bass Head Black pros: built in attenuator, got a killer gain in there. and can work with drop tunings cons:too loud, kinda expensive 1959 super lead Marshall reissue (the most recent one) pros: It`s a PLEXI! cons: It`s a PLEXI! Blackstar Series one 45 combo. pros: heard some pretty good demos of this amp cons: heard some pretty bad demos of this amp... Blackstar Artisan 30 combo pros: very high end amplifier, lots of valves and got some killer tone cons: too heavy maybe? IDK Blackstar HT-60 stage pros: lots of versatility cons: damn heavy, and also can get too muddy with distortion. i`ll be playing mostly with the les paul, but only after one year, because ì`m going to the uk in july and i`m going to live there for one year, and i`ll buy a tele there.So i want a amp that`ll work well both with a tele and a les paul. when i said today rock, i meant today music, i love kinda recent bands like GnR and stuff like that, i just don`t like maroon 5 and stuff like that.... thanks for your time guys!
