Best Tube Amp?

Please help! I'm in the market to buy a really good tube amp but I am getting conflicting reports on what is the best tube amp money can buy, especially for Metal. I thought Solodano, or Mesa Boogie would be the choice but I'm hearing that the Peavey 5150 is great. Also, does anybody know what the main differences between the 5150 and the 5150 II are? Any info would be appriciated. I have the best SS amp available in my opinion, the Line6 Vetta. Now I'd like to buy the best Tube amp out there.

Re: Best Tube Amp?

Check out this web-site for amp reviews, pros and cons, etc. I can't tell you what the differenceis betwen a 5150 and a 5150 II, but I had a 5150. Best on board distortion you'll ever find in an amp, but also the noisiest amp I've ever used.
Go to the site, and follow the guitar amp review section to whatever amp you need to check out. They're listed by manufacturer and model. A great site for getting guitar tabs as well.

prs tremonti

does anyone know around how much a new tremonti is? i know nothing about guitars but was thinking about buying one for my husband. he is a lead guitarist and was looking at this kind. also, how good of a guitar is it? thanks.

Regular Tremonti or Tremonti SE?

The Mark Tremonti model goes for about $2700 at a good retailer, and is a very nice guitar. The Tremonti SE is made for PRS in Korea, has different pickups, and goes for about $550. Nice guitar, has the PRS feel, but is a totally different construction, so the sound will be different. Really depends on what model you're looking at.......if it's the US model, it's a very good guitar, go for it.

Guitar Help

I recently got an electric guitar (yamaha) for a gift and I have never played before and I was really just wondering about the sounds an electric will produce, I would like to be able to play songs from my favorite bands (new found glory, starting line, matchbox20, nickelback, etc etc ), will an electric let me do that? or does it only work with a bass?

Re: Guitar Help

yeah, electric will let you do that kind of stuff, but you've got to have the right equipment. The thing that you need to look on your amplifier (the big box you plug your guitar into) is if it has a switch that says "overdrive" or "distortion" thats the sound i think that your looking for...if not it wouldnt be a bad idea for you to purchase an overdrive or distortion pedal...which is a small box that makes your guitar sound cool...you'd have to see it. uhm...thats about all email me if you want

Re: Guitar Help

when it comes to playing songs on a guitar, It really dosent matter what type you have. Most song will tell you beside it, if its a bass or what ever. IF you are first starting out, it would prob be best to just get used to your guitar and the feel for playing before you jump into learning songs. I say this because I had to learn that. I didn't take the time to learn what I needed to learn there for understanding songs, chords, and tabs was very hard. I got very frustrated and angry. =) Good luck. Feel free to send me an E mail or Im me if you have aol to talk. I am a beginner myself.

Marshall VS100RH amp head cutting out

Hi,
I had a problem last night with my VS100RH amp head and cab cutting out after channel switching. The sound was there very faintly for a moment and then it kicked in. Now I have had problems with the foot switches crapping out on me before and having to get a replacement. Having a gig tonight I am fairly concerned about the problem. Is anyone familiar with this type of problem? Does it sound like a case of a faulty footswitch? Thanks.

Re: Marshall VS100RH amp head cutting out

I had exactly the same problem with my Marshall VS100 combo. The problem eventually got worse to the point where it would just start cutting out for a second or so every so often.
Unfortunatley i don't know what the problem was as i traded it in problems and all for a different amp.

I'll speak to the people i traded it into and see how they fixed the problem

Cheers

Chris

Re: Marshall VS100RH amp head cutting out

This amp is pretty shit when it comes to traveling,
I used to take it around in my car quite alot and everytime I took it out and used it.. I would haveto prod around for a hour trying to get the tone that I lost.. then in the end It just packed out and I had to get it resoldered 3 times.
Guys at the shop say these models are crud when it comes to traveling, now I haveto like shove it in a box full of styrene n bubble wrap and it hasnt packed out since

Hi, back,

Its been a good many years since I've played loud and live, but we used to have a problem whose symptoms are similar to yours. It was called "cold solder". When the amp warmed up, especially outside under a hot sun, solder in the tubes would melt just enough to leave a poor or open connection. After a while it would cool down, the solder would harden, the circuit would re-connect again, and it would be fine until the next heat overload.
If this is your problem, changing tubes may help. On the other hand, there are so few tube amps left out there I may have been no help at all.

Analogue vs Digital

Hey, i'm a student doing my dissertation on guitars (inc. amps, effects, etc) and i want to have a chapter on which is best - analogue or digital. if you have any comments or know of ny links, it'd be a massive help. everything i seem to come up with is about digital cameras and the like. thanks, ant

Re: Analogue vs Digital

What aspect are you asking about?? Effects,recording??
If it's recording,I'd say THEY'RE BOTH GOOD,for different reasons.

Analog is a very rich,powerful sound and always has more gain.
The down side is analog is noisey(hiss),and difficult to edit.Also,when you bounce tracks down to another you'll lose a GENERATION.This means the sound gets muddy the more you bounce it down.

Digital is a much cleaner sound that doesn't have a lot of hiss.You can bounce tracks all day long without "Losing a Generation" or at least very little.
With the right program,you can mix,cut and paste,add effects,edit,save,undo,redo your DATA easily and quickly.The possibilities are almost endless.

The down side to digital is it's lack of warmth and balls(power).Digital tracks are usually thin,bright and don't have the volume of analog signals.I use a tube preamp and other gadgets to "beef up" the tone and make it louder.
This is the secret of "old school" bands.They all had specific engineers and equipment that they used to get a disired tone.
My last group would record analog and mix digital.We got a MONSTER sound,but it was more expensive and time consuming.
Analog is still good,but I love the flexibility of digital recording.

Hope this helps

Re: Analogue vs Digital

Your subject is a daily generator of many different opinions and extensive discussion. But the essence is well exposed by Eddie's follow up. In addition, I could say that in my experience, to have both worlds is the best, with the basic sound of a good tube amp and a high quality processor that doesn't color your note. What’s important is to have good gear. In both worlds there are great gear and crap. If you choose good gear you can mix it and take advantage of both worlds.
