    about 4 months ago, I purchased a Behringer bx1200 amp, not knowing the mediocre sound and boring tone that it puts out. I've played with the settings a ton, and i still cant get a rich clean tone, or a crisp popping tone, could you guyss help me out on how to achieve these tones from such a crappy amp,

    Like Bassart1 said, and save for a new amp, it's better to save for what you want then to skimp out now cause you have the money for something of a lesser expense. You will be much happyier in the long run! :)

    Sorry Klumick, but this happens to pretty much everybody. You're just screwed. Start saving up for a new amp, don't waste any money on DI boxes.
     
  4. Unfortunately you can't polish a turd and I've tried (aaaahhh the good ol' TNT days).

    But seriously hang in there till you can get something better. It'll get you to practice and back.

    I do have an Ampeg B2R I'm thinking of selling. Interesting maybeeeeeeee..........................?
