Head for hardcore
 
Whats a good cheap amp for hardcore I have about 300-400 dollars to spend.. What are some good suggestions? I have been looking at the Crate Blue Voodoo and the Vox AD100VTH. Is the vox good for hardcore? Ive also been looking at the Peavey XXL. Thanks for the replies

The Peavey 5150 is probably on most of the albums you like.

Is the Crate blue voodoo any good for my taste

Hetoimasia 2006-05-02 22:44

It'll probably work. You might want to look into Sovtek or old Laney AOR Pro Tube amps.

the crate can do it... but the 5150' & 6505's(exact same amp different name) is the amp of choice for most hardcore bands and they go for only $500-600 used.

+1 to 5150's,and JCM2000's.

You're definately gonna have to go for something used for a pricerange of 500-600

get a tube amp (marshall jcm 800/900/2000, framus cobra, crate BV, peavey 5150/6505)... put the gain to about 11 or 1 oclock (depending on amp and volume). If its an orange, fender or vox... put a maxon od-808 infront of it. Tubes are essential!

well, I'd say some immature emotional development coupled with anti-social anxiety disorder. Maybe a little manic-depressive would help too.

I typed in "hardcore head" on google and got something totally different than guitar equipment.

*insert name here* 2006-05-06 21:31

Bass equipment?

I don't know. Is it? Is it in your price range? Do you like how it sounds? If yes: Buy it.

arvina 2006-05-07 22:26

i have a bv 60 watt 2x12 combo. i think something might be wrong with mine, but still with mids dimed and treble a little less than half and gain maxed (yes maxxed thats why i think its broke) i sound just like underminded. no lie

*insert name here* 2006-05-08 01:34

They sound more raw to me,florida death tone,yes.Didnt find any modern hardcore tones on it really.5150's are the standard in that shit.

the_bleeding 2006-05-08 08:11

One of the guys in My Chemical Romance uses the crate bv 300... if thats what you mean by hardcore... probably uses one of the low gain channels... with the gain knob set pretty low..

arvina 2006-05-08 13:45

i dont get why someone would do that. heck ive seen a bunch of shitty puss bands using uberschalls. WHY? get a matchless or trainwreck or some other expensive not super high gain amp for that.

*insert name here* 2006-05-08 16:56

But they look cool.
