My squeel sucks

Figured out my problem with this new Peavey XXX combo. It's the squeel. It sucks. Keep missing it and it's hard to find.

Maybe I was spoiled with my old Randall Century 200 head because that thing was the bomb. Best Solid State amp ever made. Dimebags rig in Vulgar ya know. Miss it now. Had to sell it a couple months ago due to being poor :(

Should I buy a Ibanez Tube screamer to help with my squeel? And what's with all these Mods people are putting into these pedals? I'm a member of GA (Gear Anonymous) because I used to has GAS = Gear Acquasition Syndrome, I was obsessed with pedals. But my sponsor said I could buy just 1 pedal.

But which one?

What do you mean by "squeel"?

pinch harmonic = metal term used by Marky Mark in the movie RockStar when his guitarist wasn't hitting the high note. It went something like this:

"Dude, you're not playing it right!"
"yeah I am"
"no you're not"
"yeah I am"
"you're not hitting the squeel"
"yeah, that's it!"

Oh, OK. I have no knowledge of such things.

Who's Marky Mark?

squealing is all in the hands baby

the pinched harmonics are created by the guitar with overdive and some compression .

i dont use tube amps , they suck !

i use a very simple , but extremely clean fender fm and put the guitar thru a pod version2.

the pod v2 recreates any of the serious amps around from the 50's until the modern amps . around 30 different ones.

it has overdrive , chorus , delay reverb , flanger , rotary , compression , noise gate and more .

it is the best setup ive had , and inexpensive .

if your rich , and only play rock dirges , then by all means , get a tube amp , and a pedal to go with it , but i would highly recommend podv2 .

i got mine 2nd hand from ebay 4 about £90 inc postage !

Fender frontman?
I cant think of a worse sound than a Pod going through a guitar amp,
they are just about OK recording, if you cant mike up a real amp.
Even if you stuck it through a real good PA it would sound naf, but through a guitar amp?
You get a tube amp working, running hot, and there is NO substitute, and there is a Tube amp for every style of music.
I once had the idea of putting a Vamp 2 (very much like the POD but cheaper) through a Fender Twin on clean, and the whole setup was just so bad, i sold the lot and bought Vox AC30 and some pedals.
I dont care what station you listen to, what colour jeans you wear, you simply can not beat a good valve amp.

yes , maybe its just a matter of opinion , but hmm let me see , yep , your wrong and your ac30 is a bygone era , if they were so good , they'd still be around ! and they r not !

you had a crappy set up ! you still do !
you must be deaf dude !

of course you would put a guitar thru a guitar amp , derrrr, what else , and a pod v2 was designed for guitar so not only do you live in the past , you know sweet fa about the present , which probably means that you are either old and stupid or young and niave , either way , you are closeminded , about modern equipment , and evolution !

I play my guitar through a 150watt bass amp with a 15" that's a sound!

I used a high quality 1inch Tweater for my main speaker when I had that Randall Century Head. Talk about a little sound with a huge tone.

There are so many variables at play that this thread is pointless. Different guitars will sound good or bad through different amps. There are great -and disasterous - combinations to be had, so the individual must experiment and find out what works for them.

What is the point in arguing about it?
