The 2nd part!

Ooo, I don't know anything about the vypers sorry, But for the vox valvetronix I do! Two of my friends recently bought one and they both say they're really nice. One of them still doesn't like the fact that its not a tube amp but says it works really well. Ill ask a bit more about them and get back to you on it if you like.

:) Moom

hi mate, nice amp! glad you got one sorted. What kinda tones you getting from it? im good thanks, you? im still looking for a proper amp for myself... the fender is fine as a stop gap but i cant find my tone on it... it sounds "ok" but doesnt have a sweet spot anywhere! You havent happened to play the new valvetronix's or the peavey vypyrs have you?

Cheers mate. Well I'v gotta say, the tones you can get are amazing. You can get pretty much anything but it really suits 80's rock, hair rock...that sort of stuff. Huge amount of gain and a nice clean channel aswell. I'v been learning some hendrix lately and it can nail that fine.
Ah good one. yeah im pretty good thanks. Oh I see. You do have to have the right amp for yourself to be happy...well thats what I realised haha.

There are 3 reasons I bought my fender SS amp. Price, the fact it responds well to my playing and the fact the speaker response is great. Its a tad fizzy sounding (although the cleans are great) but overall it was cheap, non guitarists think it sounds great and the speaker is really punchy and powerful even at low volumes so I can cut through the mix and sound pretty decent. If your can play to the best of your ability on your bandit and it doesnt get lost in the mix then it is fine for gigging. tone is subjective and doesnt really matter to non-guitarists, so you should be fine!

Ahh nice one. Thanks for the advice. I would love a JCM 800 :O out of my price range though. I think your right about my amp being fine. Its probobly just me being naive and wanting to get the best equipment i can so early! i don't yet gig anyway, apart from school performances. Got one on wednesday haha. Not very impressive :P Cheers for the explanation and advice mate

ahh sucks about the laney pro

Im afraid i sold my laney on ebay ages ago. I dont have anywhere near as much time to play anymore so i just got a cheap fender SS amp that does the job and a pocketpod to play late at night when I have time. Its a serious downgrade but there is no point in spending hundreds on an amp that will just accumulate dust. Id recommend the VC15 over the LC15 for you anyway - i played it in a shop and it sounded much nicer; closer to a marshall sort of british sound

Hope you get something soon!

Ahh man. Thats a shame you don't play as much. Don't like hearing stuff like this! haha. But yeah i agree with not spending loads if you won't use it much.

I have a performance next week and the amp ill be using is a SS Peavey Bandit. Do you think SS amps are ok for smallish gigs? It is 80watts but im not too sure :\

thats awesome mate, you liking it? What does it sound like?

Glad you finally got something!

ahhh it didn't go through in the end. I found out the bloke used it with a bass and i didn't want to replace a shredded speaker. It really annoyed me.
haha, i tried deleting the comment but i couldnt find out how to?

Still looking!!

Are you still selling your laney?


moominman2 wrote on Sep 25th, 2008 9:41pm

hey mate. I just bought a Laney Pro Tube for 150. Finally got one haha

Well the beauty of valve amps is that the parts are easily servicable. If it ever breaks on you it is 9 times out of 10 something that can be solved easily by a tech. people buy 1980s marshalls every day - i guess back in the 80s Laney were beginning to make a name for themselves so i guess build quality was an important factor - chances are it will work fine!

Ive owned a 1980s JCM800 and all that was wrong with it was a crackly pot - all i had to do was clean it! Id say go for it, you could get a real bargain!!

Thanks alot mate. Your right i think. I rekon im going to try get at it tomorrow after the seller tells me some info about it :D Cheers

you can easily gig with a 30w valve amp that AOR should sound amazing at a gig! How much is it?

ahh sweet. Well at the moment it's 60 but i rekon it will go for more

im just worried about it being quite an old amp from the 80's that it might fizz and buzz when nothing is being played and make aload of noise.
Also im concerned about how long it would last me. I don't want to waste money on an amp that will blow or break down within a couple years :/

What do you think man?

Thanks alot


moominman2 wrote on Sep 3rd, 2008 5:05pm

hey mate. just found a laney aor, its a 30 you rekon i could gig with that? thanks

slashs_#1_fan wrote on Aug 27th, 2008 at 9:47pm :

not a problem! Ill keep my eyes peeled for a Laney AOR and let you know if I see one (Im always looking for amps anyway so its no effort :P)

You heard the AOR on youtube? It makes me want one!!! sounds great. Too powerful for me though

ah man thanks alot :D

yeah i have haha. It sounds amazing. It's prorobly too powerful for my needs aswell but i really love the tone! haha
