OK guys . . .

 

 

. . . so you are in TWO bands.

 

You play in a Soulfly/Sepultura style metal band & a Ramones Punk Rock like band.

 

But you have only money for ONE Guitar (also sate your PU's) & ONE Amp ! No dirt boxes allowed except maybe a Boost & Delay.

 

SO, given those "walls" to work with-in what will YOU use ???

 

Let's hear it . . .

 

 

Cheers

;)

personally I'd never be in a metal band, and probably never again be in a punk band (hard to deal with those punk kids)

 

But I'd just use my setup and roll with it. I'd let my playing dictate the style rather than the tones. Personally I pick my pedals for the tones they get, not necessarily the style of music they'd be good for.

um.....of of the top of my head:


Gibson SG (faded or whatever you can afford)

the stock pickups are ok

into a JCM800/900 (assuming you have a boost for the heavy band)



is that too generic??

 

Nope, that is fine . . .

 

. . . just want to see how creative everyone can get with those "restrictions" :idea:

Here's mine :

 

Used 70's/80's LP (deep dark wine red) with EMG 89's - they can be split into S/C !

 

That going into a Catelinbread Sagrado Poblano Picoso Stout Boost, and that tone get's "delay'ed" by a H&K Replex, into a Mesa Stiletto Deuce half Stack !

. . . fitted with this . . .

 

http://www.emginc.com/displayproducts.asp?section=Guitar&categoryid=6&catalogid=6 - chosen because it can be "split" !

 

. . . into Catelinbread Boost & then the H&K Replex . . .

. . . getting louder via this . . .

SO :

 

Les Paul w. EMG 89's

Catalinbread boost

H&K Replex

Mesa Stiletto (half stack)

 

 

 

OK, so this rig is not cheap, but it is only ONE Guitar & ONE Amp !!!

 

 

Cheers

What's the budget? I know you said no pedals, but what if your budget is near 0?

My advice for n00bs reading this would be AVOID ANY GUITAR AMP TECHNOLOGY THAT SELLS FOR UNDER $400. This includes

THE BEST MID-PRICED AMPS are


For shoestring (under $500), one could do Squier Strat-> Dano Fab Dist. & Behr Vintage "Muff" (punk) -> used Metal Zone-> Dano Eq for solos -> Behringer Sansamp clone-> any 75watt+ keyboard amp or PA speaker.

That's basically what I use and I get any punk or metal sound I need (except Black Flag, Greg Ginn had that super lo-fi sound, or Pantera--the other extreme of super hi-fi sound).
