Alright guys. I will admit my rig may shock you for its all out ghetto value. But, believe me or not, I CAN actually get a good tone out of this.

Guitars:
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
LTD Viper 400

Amp:
Roland Cube 60

Effects:
Boss Metal Core Distortion Pedal
Boss Blues Driver Pedal
Boss Dynamic Wah Pedal

I'm going to get a job soon, though, so I can make some huge upgrades. B)

Geez man. I think the only thing holding you back is the Cube amp! If you eventually swap that for something bigger and better you will be sporting a pretty good rig.

So....what do you want to upgrade? What is on the wishlist?

Well, for a solid state modeling amp it's actually pretty good. But I do agree, I will probably get a better amp soon.

I've been looking at some tube combo amps, mostly Randalls and Hughes and Kettners. The Randall RG50TC is my primary choice so far. I just don't have enough money yet is all.

I was wondering about those. I also was wondering about the small Krank amp.

the mini krank revs are supposed to sound pretty sweet, the only problem i can think of that i've heard about them is the lack of a foot switch (but for that price, why not buy two of em so you can have different eq settings for clean and hight gain).

sorry to hijack your thread, thebiz

I don't think of it as hijacking. Don't worry about it.

Those Rev Jr.s look awesome! I'll have to look into those. Thanks for the suggestion!

you might also want to try out some of the smaller crate tube amps (not very high gain, but they do sound good). depending on your budget, you could also consider the genz benz el diablo series (perfect for just about every style of music and guitar you can throw at it!)

Alright, cool. I plan to keep my budget from $400-$700 if possible. I haven't heard much from Benz, but a local technical metalcore band at my high school uses Crate amps, so I'll talk to them about that.

i have a crate 120 watt 212, it's pretty sweet. plenty of distortion, but not as tight as i would like. but for the price it's amazing (and it can get pretty loud). un fortunatly, the genz benz wil probably be a little out of your price range (combos starting at 1100). if you want a nice tube amp, check out the peavey valvekings and crate blue voodoos (unfortunatly, the only BV you can get anymore is the 120 which is lacking the 150 and 300's ultra high gain channel, but it's still pretty sweet).
