    I just bought a guitar off someone from Craigslist, an ESP LTD and a Crate GFX-15. One of the reasons I went with this setup is the guy told me I could get a good sounding distortion for metal style playing straight through the amp without a pedal and stuff. I've been playing around with the knobs but I have no idea how to get it to sound how I want. Does anyone have some help? I don't know what delay, flange, overdrive etc all mean or how I use them to get the sounds I'm looking for.
  2. Thats a guitar amp, so I dont think you will get a very good sound for bass :(

    Try using some overdrive, but dont turn the amp up much, as you could easily blow the speaker.

    Sorry if I wasn't clear but I'm using the mentioned amp with the new ESP LTD guitar I bought. I know this is a bass forum, but I was already registered here and I figured it was an easy question to begin with so I just posted here.

    My bass is doing just fine. In fact I've been playing it while I wait to hear about my guitar :)
