So im in a band that is grindcore/hard rock/ progressive/ and slight blues on occasion. In fact here is my band site with our music to hear our sound so you can help my dilema www.myspace.com/tmwdh Anyways, I was looking for what I thought I needed which was a heavy playing type amp because I thought our band was going to go in that direction. So I bought the Peavey 6505+ with the 6505 cab. Well we ended up touching upon many genres and not really playing too much metal or hardcore at all. After about 3 months of playing I started to question whether my amp was really fiting in with our style of music. (BTW I play a ESP Viper 400 w/ emg's throught this amp so i have a decent metal setup which doesnt help my dilema.) (I am buying a new guitar soon w/o EMG's btw.) I want a lighter not such a strong metal tone and equiptment cause we don't play much of it. What I need help with is knowing what the heck I should do? I do not know much about this stuff as you can see from my guitar and amp purchases so I really neeed all of your input! Do I mod the amp w/ different tubes? (ive heard Svetlana tubes) Get a diff cab? Sell it and buy a different amp? (marshall? mesa dual rec? orange? i have no idea) Please give me some insight cause I am stressing about it because we are a serious band and I need the right equiptment to complete our sound. Thank you everyone!!!
