Good Cab and Head for Hard Progressive Rock?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by MadPink, Feb 22, 2002.


  1. I need something new, and Im not to sure on what to get. I have a Yorkville BS100watt at the moment and its not nearly loud enough. I need something with good mids and lows. Im not sure on venue size at the moment, but Im looking in the 400watt range. The music style is very hard to describe, but we have a very aggressive edge with many soft breakdowns. Very Crimson and pink floyd like, but harder. Any advice is good advice. thanks,.

    Also, Im not sure if this matters at all, but I will also be using a lot of effects....just thought id add that in,.

    It depends on the tone you're goign for.

    Carvin's would work, just the same a Peavey would, or a lower end Ampeg, like an Ampeg B2r. :)
     
  3. thanks for the suggestions...

    do you know how much the B-2R goes for?

    Eden XLT.

    Has deep sound, hard, big, fat, and has a nice spike in the low-mids that makes them cut through like a knife, while still being heavy as all hell.
     
  6. I second the XLT and also put in a vote for the GS410.

    I think you should look at his gear section, and consider what his likely price range is before you spit amps out that cost so much. :rolleyes:

    I recommend a Nemesis 4x10 cabinet and the B2R
