Members MichaelSaulnier Posted January 21, 2010 Members Share Posted January 21, 2010 Last night at band practice, I was playing several of my guitars through my Mesa F-50. All of them sounded very nice... (I do have nice guitars)... One of my bandmates was selling another amp, a low cost Fender, on CL, and the person was scheduled to come check it out right at the end of our rehearsal. When the guy arrived, my bandmate, a drummer, asked me to plug into the Fender and the whole band played a song. Whoa. I was using my Fender American Deluxe QMT, which just "sings" through my F-50... but it really did not sound so good through this amp... we tweaked it a bit and tried again, but imho, we NEVER got a decent sound out of this amp. The guy buying it didn't seem to care, (I don't know why he didn't try it with his own guitar and played it himself), and he ended up buying the amp... but it made me realize that no matter how nice your guitar is, the amp has just as much, if not more, impact on the tone. Honestly, my F-50 makes all my guitars sound good, even the el-cheapo squires I have... So if I had to choose... I'd make sure I had a decent guitar, and a great sounding amp... not the other way around. How about you? M Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
