anyone have experinces with any of these amps, which is best for rock?
First off, they are all great for rock, it depends on what kinda rock you are playing and what kinda ears you have. They all have completely unique sounds, and the different models have different sounds besides those.
why not get an amped head and a eden box?
Y'know, I was born in 1948. Rock was born in about 1953. That means I have been listening to "rock" for over 50 years. What in the HELL do you mean by "rock"?
Damn Munj, you were 16 when I was born, and I'm old.
What's best for rock? Obviously, Behringer connected with Tara Labs Cables.
Make sure they come equipped with boogera aluminium speakers!
Well, I thought that went without saying. Gotta have Boogera aluminum speakers! Ya gotta have an OLP or SX bass to rawk too.
seb, taking the time to fill out your public profile will help others advise you on finding 'your' sound, as well as avoiding sarcastic comments. But do take your time- I'm here for the comic relief.
Triple threat? I'm not feeling threatened by any of these brands.
I've tried one of each though:
I used to own a Mesa/Boogie Basis M2000 head (paired with a Bag End S15X-D) and it sounded good to me. This setup sounded good to me: very smooth and clear sound, and lots of tone shaping possible with the 2000 knob amp.
At church we have an Ampeg B210HP combo, that one has lots of punch for its size (it's heavy though) but the sound isn't very clear and accurate. Works well with a group though.
My current rig is an Eden WT-800 head into an AccuGroove Tri-112L cab. The best sound I've ever had or heard. Very clear, accurate and powerful. It is so clear that I haven't ever needed to adjust the EQ on the amp, all tonal variation from my fingers comes through very well. Lovely!
For purely rock music though (meaning that you play with a drummer and probably a guitarist, both pretty loud), I imagine the Ampeg would give satisfaction.
i dont mind being insulted but i really do hate being patronised people
Seb, I own Edens and Ampegs, and I pretty much tend to use the Ampegs for rock...we do the classic rock thing if it makes a difference. So and SVT and 8x10 does the job quite well. My Edens had a little more modern sound, and IMO require a little more tweeking to get the tone I like. For me, the Ampegs are plug and play. No effects or anything like that.
I repeat:Fill out your profile. Lie if you want, but don't make us guess.
what kind of rock man??? its a simple question
hard rock, punk rock, classic rock, prog rock?
who's tone do you like? what do you lean towards? what kind of bass do you play?
with no info, I'd recommend a bass pod and a big power amp through a cereal box with whoopy cushion speakers
My dream rig! This also conjures thoughts that pop up during or just preceding a particularly heinous trainwreck: Riding the Hindenburg, fully engulfed in flames, into the ground at Lakehurst, New Jersey- straddling her like a cowboy, trying to steer the great beast away from her death...
I see you've moved an 810 down a flight of stairs too
I use an Ampeg head with Eden cabs and my guitarist uses a Mesa Boogie amp, and we play rock. So I say go with all three.
OK, I'm down with that. And my wife was 11 when I got out of the Marine Corps. No, we weren't dating yet.
I hear ya. My wife was in 9th grade my first year on the PD. Nope..we weren't dating yet either.
There is no David Eden.
+1 and LMAO
