A Friedman amp.
That will be the last.
All the best,
Nah, you’re all set to blast off bro!
The new stuff is a rehash of all you already have.
I got a fender 25 a fender 40 and a Marshall 100 half stack. I’ll never need anything else! I’m your age.
Just look at what fender did to the poor telecaster! Acoustisonic my ass! And $700 too!
Nope…why, methinks because you have your baseline of sound already and thats what you’ll be chasing with the modern stuff.
I’ll take Glenlivet 12 on ice cubes please.
Probably not. I'm in the same boat with a different combination of gear. The only way I see to make "new/different" gear make sense is to unload what I have to make room for something else...which may not necessarily be better or scratch the itch.
Nah. It seems to me that most of the new technological stuff is being built with the goal of sounding like the real deal, which you already have. Plus it's not built to last.
I wish I could get my old Kustom Sidewinder 15" JBL combo back.
Nay!, ye olde fella.
Leave the tech' stuff to the PlayStation generation
All the high tech modeling is trying mimic the real thing. You have the real thing. The modeling helps if you’re trying to lower the volume for live performances or for travel convenience and quick set up. It also gives a lot of options in a small package. But there is always a compromise of quality of waveform signal and feel to the real deal.
It is a tool but the real amps are alive with hundreds of volts flowing through an empty vacuum with delicate frequencies that only can survive there…you are literally harnessing lightning in your hands. Pretty magical. For anyone who has never stood in front of a full stack Plexi at volume….try it before you share a different viewpoint.
I’ve played through both modeling and owned an early 70’s full Marshall stack Plexi….no comparison.
But those amps are for stadiums or home use…not most venues the majority on here have access to. Venues years ago used to tolerate those monster amps but not today. At least this area of the country.
In the end get what you want. That’s the beauty of freedom and choice. If you like it that’s all that matters.
I dont mind digital gear and its great now that I think about it have no digital gear except the Tuner Pedal and two solid amps with a Princeton Bordeaux with a 12 or AC15C1-12
Ive tried other stuff but these amps and a couple pedals do it for me and dont leave me wanting much more.
I may get a Digital Delay or a Leslie emulator one day and those are awesome but my amps are staying tube through and through.
My little Micro Cube rocks and its awesome though and some of these digital amps are great and do it for many but nothing satisfies more than a solid tube amp.
If you like what you have the short answer is
I eyeballed one a couple of weeks ago but I bought a Mesa for Christmas. So I was afraid to plug into the Friedman. Well, my bank account was afraid at least
3) Retail - or today's version of that - therapy
I've never given a carp about new and innovative. But I play a Tele, so what do I know?
Not my home. Unless I want the cops called, and an eviction notice.
No. Todays new and innovative gear will be yesterday's news tomorrow. The gear you currently have will still be talked about 20 years from now.
Don't ruin it.
No you do not ...
