nice! Will try. Clean enough to run an acoustic through?
Well, an acoustic is an animal unto itself. Reproducing those harmonics and the "breathing life" that a good acoustic has is difficult for any amp.
Acoustic players know and love what they know and love.
I'd say the amp could do it, but I dont play acoustic, so my answer is not something I would wager money on.
True. And it sounds great. But, this is also the main reason I prefer Peavey transtube amps, you can get a variety of sounds (spanking clean, slight crunch, saturated gain of all levels) at a variety of volumes. Without an attenuator, tube amps (those with decent amounts of headroom) cannot do that.
Ah hah!! I shall run my little Mushtang through a better and more efficient speaker that just happens to be in a cab that my Musthang II sits on top of.
Undoubtedly the most under rated workhorse amps of all time.
Just for a laugh I plugged my MI into a Marshall 4x12.
The results were something you'd have to hear to believe.
Double post ,, sorry
My opinions are just that, my opinions.
If someone doesn't like my opinions, they can return them for a full refund or store credit.
You win the internet for today, good sir.
By "break out" do you mean...break up? Really the only way I know to get rid of break up at a given sound level is to get a very efficient speaker...any of the speaker manufacturers can help you choose the right speaker...or get a more powerful amp that won't be working so hard at that level.
yeah, true. I think he means the artificial breakup from the modeling amps, but he could mean natural breakup from solid state amps, in which case, he probably just needs a bigger amp or better speaker like you said.
But you really have to crank those old solid states to get them sounding overdriven (and I'm sure it sounds really bad, if so.) They sound more like something is going to blow up, than overdrive
I know...I don't like fuzz boxes, but they sound pretty dang good compared to a dying SS amp. I had an old Peavey F800g, the black hole of tone, but all the headroom in the world.
We have managed a couple of pages without actually being sure what we are talking about...
What about throwing in DV Mark SS heads ..Small ,Very loud if needed.I have a Little Jazz because I play ..ahem .....a little jazz ,live in bars its very loud and very toneful for cleans and pedals up well ,but they also do much louder ,dirty or cleaner heads .Match your own choice speaker cab to it.
Hey...I did my part.
Why return something that has no value?
If you think a quality high gain amp is the same as a cheap pedal, than your opinion carries no weight on the subject.
That said, you are of course, entitled to your opinion.
Not all of us. I offered advice based on my experience.
OP, what is price range? I've gigged and still do sometimes an orange cr60c. Sounds awesome with a mic, not super cheap, but not expensive. Can do lots of different styles, also its built very sturdy but it's fairly heavy.
Short of that, not quite ss but the box mv50 series with a 4ohm cab would do the same, or run it into the board. Very portable, and super affordable.
Both of these amps are good budget options that sound great.
Not an endorser or even an owner, but I'm surprised we've not seen a bunch of Katana recommendations? Its mid-sized, well loved for its tone, lightweight, new, and for the moment - cool.
Me too - but a digression to the thread.
That's an opinion..... and you're more than welcome to have it.
Let's keep it friendly.
