Electric Guitar and Bass amp

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Masterbasser71, Mar 16, 2006.

  1. So I'm flat broke, trying to get money for a guitar, but I haven't the money, nor the room for that matter to be getting a guitar amp. I have a very awesome bass amp going, an SWR Studio 220 into a Goliath II, the bass tones I get are beautiful. SO when its time to get a guitar and play through that low-end loving beast, how do i make the amp sound more guitar-like, less bass amp sounding? Help?

    Roll off a LOT of lows for starters, and watch out for that tweeter. It wouldn't hurt to use a guitar pre in front of that, or an appropriate OD/DIST box. Then start playing with the lower and upper mids EQ til you get in the ballpark of the sounds you think you need.

    I gigged on guitar with an AMP BH-260 into a pair of Bag End cabs. I used a boss multi effect between guitars and amp with the amp mostly flat.

    Sounded KILLER!

    I jsut hooked up my guitar to my aggie db750 and one gs210 with a fulltone bassdrive on the front end for a songwriting session. Sounded really good.
