I went and checked out the amp (G50 112 II) and other than the speaker being blown and no footpedal, the amp works well and sounds fine. They got a kick out of the fact that I brought my own guitar to try it out. I had read that speakers were the weak link on these amps anyways. Now I just need to get him down to bargain for me territory. He seemed to think that just because some guys was asking $499 for a G50 112 series one that he might even jack his price up. He had it marked reasonable for an amp without a blown speaker but with it blown I'll walk in with cash later this week and see if he budges.
I am thinking that the G50 will be a perfect addition to a 2-amp rig with the G50 for at least acoustic and misc.
Nice playing for a person of any age, but you're 15?!
My son is a 15 y.o. bass player (also homeschooled) who plays well beyond his years too. Too bad we don't live closer.
Any thoughts on which solid state amps would be best/better (but reasonably priced) with a keyboard?
GK ML & RL 250
GK Backline 55 (original series)
Marshall Lead 12
Carvin SX 200
I picked up a new Dean Markley DM60RC earlier this year that is a superb sounding solid state combo.Loud enough for most club gigs and a good feature set [footswitchable digital reverb/analog chorus,effects loop and Celestion speaker] make for a quality solid state combo for less than $300.
Not sure if it has been mentioned. But I Love the JC-120H
I'm going to vote for the Marshall MG series amps. Fantastic sounding rock and roll tones.
Can't believe there are votes for the Marshall MG series and the Roland Cubes. I despise those amps. For a modeling amp i much prefer the vox VT series. But technically that doesn't qualify as there's a tube in the preamp.
best solid state amp I've played (and still own) = Fender Harvard Reverb from the early 1980s Rivera era -- sweet clean tones and lush reverb
honorable mention = Tech 21 Trademark 10 -- perfect bedroom/practice amp
bad experiences with solid state = Marshall MG series, Squier sidekick
the fender frontman series is a pretty good solid state amp gets a great signature fender clean tone and its cheap. I'd rather play out of a pa or bass amp then the marshall mg series.
I can not say how many times folks suggested that I put a tube in my amps to avoid the stigma of solid state. I suppose that I could have, but a 12AX7 in the preamp does not really make a tube amp because the output stage is far more complex. The output stage has sag, compression, harmonic generation, and fat. Certainly, the output stage inspired far more of my patents than the preamp stages.
Have a great day, Eric
Forgot those. Nice!
The Valvetronix series use the tube for emulating a typical push-pull power amp stage but naturally in much lower current/voltage/power. It's pretty clever circuit.
Waller G-Max 100H head. made by the same dudes that are now making the ISP amps. good loud cleans (w/ a TON of low end) and a really killer gain channel. it can do everything from classic rock crunch to ludicrously gained out Death metal
bump.. cool thread.. keep it goin
Lab series L5 . Bought one off of Craig's List. Not too heavy for a 212 combo. Sounds pretty full with a nice soft overdrive. The compressor is outstanding. It is a very fun amp to noodle on.
I wanted one of these in 1980 really bad. Never got around to it. Now I'm making up for lost time.
Reverb is pretty good and I like the tone circuit.
