New amp or new guitar? 
Author Message
I'm a good guitar player, but what starts to annoy me is the 'plastic' sound of my guitar, or amp. My guitar is a BC Rich Mockingbird Exotic Classic. I think it's a great guitar but the sound that comes out of my amp to is bordered. My favourite music to play is Muse and The Killers. Should I get a new amp to get that sound of those bands or is my guitar not good enough.

My amp is: Roland Cube 30X

Thank you

Hey Daniel, if I were you, and you like your guitar, I'd go for a new amp.
There's more variety you can get from an amp - also get one with effects,
and more, such as the fender fender g-dec (has built in drum and bass patterns
to jam with).

I've recommended this amp to a lot of my guitar students,
and they absolutely love it! :metal:

See you again on the forum...have fun.

Peavey Vypyr 15! Awesome amp! I had the same problem and i bought this...It's not expensive and it's a great guitar amp!

I bought a Peavey Vypyr 75, I play mostly Metal but if you do go Vypyr, prepare for a lot of headaches. I'm not sure if the lower wattages have this problem, but my presets always change by themselves, I get a lot of unwanted noise from it, and the distortion channel is not adequate for my style (Metal, Metallica, Megadeth, Sabbath ect...) however you can get very nice clean tones out of it. Like the first reply that Fender is a good choice, also Marshall AVT's are nice. They have some built in effects, nice clean tone and you can get a nice distortion as well, plus it's a Tube Preamp. So you get a Tube sound, with Solid State bennefits as well. It's actually what I am selling my Peavy to get.

The Line 6 Spider models also do excellent amp modelling, as do the Roland Cube amps.
Add those to the already mentioned Fender G-DEC and Peavey Vypyr amps.

Head down to your local guitar shop and try a few of these modeling amps out and see what you like.

If i were you I'd get a new amp. It helps make your sound alot better....way more that a guitar would I think. I have a 1966 fender bassman...it's the best amp I've ever played on. Check it out online.
