Amps with underrated cleans

  • 7,780
  • 183
What amps do you own or have tried have underrated cleans meaning they are great but not necessarily known for it.

For me:
  • Vox AC30
  • Orange CR120 (with an EVM12L)
  • Marshall DSL100HR
  • Metropoulos Super-Plex (really sweet with those KT66 tubes)
  • Mesa JP-2C (best sparkly cleans out of any amp, especially with EVM12L) it may not exactly be underrated but it's certainly not known for having the best cleans in the business

Ever realize you’re just…done?

  • 25,295
  • 433
So I’m poking around TGP and came across an ad for a sunburst Strat at a pretty good price. I got excited then realized…I don’t need it.

I have a main guitar, and a suitable backup for gigs. I’m satisfied with my modeling solution. Satisfied with my monitoring choice.

So, as excited as I got for a few minutes, I sighed and moved on.

Let me guess - that means my TGP card is going to be revoked, right?!?

Refinished pre CBS Strat with Repro Decal?

  • 4,235
  • 49
I'm looking at a refinished 60's pre CBS Strat that also has a repro decal. I'm not even 100% sure I want to place an offer for a vintage Strat without the original decal, except for the fact it would be the cheapest way to get my hands on an otherwise dream Strat.

How much discount would you guys expect off of a typical refinished price for a pre CBS 60's Strat, and could you stomach the fact that it's missing the original decal considering it's also a long term investment?

How do you get the best tones out of your Telecaster?

Having played Gibson or similar humbucker equipped guitars all my life I have now, at age 64, got my first Tele. Actually, a Japanese made Tokai Breezy Sound. Any tone tips would be most appreciated.

How Did you Pick Your Pickups?

  • 9,849
  • 274
I'm plotting out a strat partscaster build and I am just absolutely stuck on making a decision on the pickups.

A big issue for me is that there's not a real uniform way to listen to multiple different kinds of pickups (putting aside all the unavoidable variables like listening setup even if there were some uniform source or Youtube channel that had wide ranging pickup demonstrations).

At this point, I'm 90% sure I'm just going to go with some Fender Fat 50s, but it's been a lot of back...

The main differences between a Tele and a Strat

I've been a Telecaster player for the past 4 years and am considering buying a Stratocaster. Other than the obvious differences,( 3 pickups vs. 2, one being tremolo capable, physical shape) what are the different characteristics?

Hey, Guys! I’m a pretty big grunge & Alternative 90’s rock guy. I graduated high school in ‘96. I struggle to find newer music that I’m really into. What rock albums of the last twenty years or so should I check out? I appreciate the suggestions! Thanks.

I’m in a country project. Signal chain: Tele > comp > klon solo boost > Deluxe or Twin Reverb.

Do any of you guys have a tone polisher for cleans that is always on after your comp?

Thanks

Gibson basses...why?

Only time I saw a Gibson bass being played on stage it was by a 90 year old woman cranking out hymns at a church funeral on an SG bass. I see Schecter basses based on Gibson designs (Simon Gallup, Nikki Sixx), but have never seen an actual Gibson bass being played or even know anyone that owns one. Who is buying these? Maybe I'm just old and these are popular with the...

Ever felt your gear is too nice?

  • 3,928
  • 208
I was playing a gig with my original band. We were part of a 4 band set. I was feeling like my gear was a bit too nice. I mean my amp and guitar was probably more expensive than all the bands gear combined. Have you ever felt like you needed a "B" rig, or even a "C" rig?

Are Tribute Bands killing Variety Cover Bands in your city?

  • 7,739
  • 147
Here in Denver, it seems like everyone I used to play with who's still out gigging is exclusively in a tribute band or two, or primarily focused on a tribute band. I talked to one guy who was doing a 90s (mostly) variety cover band and he said the Tribute bands he's in are great because you can share a bill and focus on 1-ish hours of your best stuff. It's not unlike an originals lineup and commitment. That was the other thing this guy I know really liked. Getting in and out and not having...

Hi forum minds! What will happen during the anticipated inflation? Money will loose its value, but what about collectable guitars, basses and other expensive vintage stuff? Any ideas?

I’ve owned a fair amount of instruments ranging in price from entry level mass production to upper tier boutique. And been fortunate to have played some beautiful guitars featuring brilliant detailed craftsmanship.
It seems like more often than not around here what people want to know or talk about is tone. I’m into that for sure.. But over the years, and many, many...
