First decent combo

  1. If you could knock the price down on that, it'd be pretty sweet starter setup. Pity about the buzzing. See what the guy's lowest is and try it out (being able to try something is the big benifit here).

    Thats the plan! :D Also I'd have enough money spare to get an amp and cab (even if he doesn't reduce the price much) so I can leave it at the drummer's place.

    Thanks!
     
  3. good plan :)
     
  4. Props to you, Mohawk, for disagreeing in a pleasant, respectful way with my blurb. I'd love to see more give-and-take like that. +1

    OK, here's some more...ARE YOU INSANE????

    :D :bag:

    Sorry...that was a joke, it really was. But like all good jokes, there's a grain of truth to it. I don't know why people who don't like tube amps have to resort to grossly exaggerating to get others to see their way. Everything you said about tube amps is patently false. Considering the tremendous volume of tube amps still being produced, sold, and used, they're far from dinosaurs. And far from being delicate. It took a bar fire to make my 73 V4B go down after about 12 years of 3-6 night a week usage with nary a problem. I've got a 64 B-15N that I owned and used about 5 times a month for 7 years before I ever even replaced a tube. And I'm talking hard miles in trucks and trailers. Yeah, you might have to replace a tube or two every few years. Whoopee.

    Solid state gear breaks down, too, BTW. I've had as many SS amps in the shop as tube amps. Neither is more inherently reliable than the other. As with all high quality amps, take good care of them and they'll take good care of you.

    Got no problem if you don't like tube amps. Hell, I own SS amps and a VT Pedal my own self. But let's not spread misinformation here in order to push an agenda.

    Just put a decent effect box in the effects loop. Something like a SABDDI should do it. The Behringer version is pretty good too, if you want to save some $.
     
  7. Tis quite alright, I'm hardly going to have a hissy fit because someone disagrees with something when I know I'm right . . . joking :p .

    It's all personal preference really, when we are talking about tone etc, there is no completelly right or wrong answer, everyone has a different perspective on the matter. :)

    I got the Peavey! And it doesn't buzz! :D Paid £50 for it because of that. Now I can actually feel the sound rather than just hearing it :p

    Thanks guys! And thanks for your help especially i_got_a_mohawk! :smug:

    Congrats on your purchase. Very good deal. Some extra cash to boot!
    I'm sure it will be fine for many years to come.
     
  10. Peavey amps sure served me wonderfully in my "early days" of serious club-gigging (not an oxymoron): Nobody ever kicked me out of a DC, Balt., NYC etc club for thumping away through one of those Mississippi Queens.... You know what I mean? :D

    Congratulations!
