nah all the work that actually goes into making an amp justifies the price
i picked up a vintage marshall for 400$
and i picked up a vintage fender for like 900$
you guys need to learn how to shop
elaborate on your process of picking those up
cause I prefer my method of clicking a couple buttons on musician's friend and having it arrive at my door a few days later
that sounded kinda really defensive that's not how I meant it
I meant "I am superior to you in every way"
lol musician's friend.
you gotta dig deeper if you want cool gear.
i know a lot of musicians and they always either have some gear or know someone else who wants to sell gear and you always get a good deal if you go by a friend.
craigslist sometimes has good deals too.
well I managed to find a JTM 60 for £200 on gumtree
did I do a good? I think it's an old 90s tube head.
cool gear doesn't move unless you make an offer. check out local live music acts and if anyone has anything really cool offer $700 for it and hope for the best
I'm trying to convince him to get a Tiny Terror for £175.
now he's making me mad.
his argument is basically "I want a marshall crunch, classic sound, lol everything else is shit"
he doesn't even respect the MG series for what it is (cheaper, more affordable amps, but a full range of power choices)

Letters come from far and near.
All year round they make me wanna cheer!
I'm set for the netherlands =)
What's better in your guys opinion, A big muff or metal zone? Because i want to use a distortion pedal through the clean channel on my amp, I get a better response that way.
they say fuzz but it's really just straight dirt
I'm not going to pretend Bugera has any idea what they're doing, and I'm not going to go out of my way to buy something just to rip it apart and examine the circuit, but the fact that you can find a $800 clone of a $2000 amp is a fairly good indication that that $2000 amp isn't worth $2000.
lol you can buy a Minimoog for 2000, and that's infinitely more complex and better made.
Clones will use cheaper components, but that still doesn't account for the price increase.
Pricing is also used to increase the perception of quality.
My point is you can tell even Bugera crap is overpriced, because they're cutting corners on everything. Cosmetic stuff like that doesn't represent a large portion of an amplifier's cost, and you can find better-built heads in the same price range, so it's clear even making a clone they're trying to charge the absolute maximum possible for the absolute minimum production cost.
Come to think of it, how much do you think a broken high end amplifier sells for? Might be fun to tear something pricey but ruined open just to get an idea of the parts used and see what they run for.
I was looking for a modern metal distortion pedal.
the big muff is better suited for noise rock than metal.
Metal Muff maybe, Big Muff no
i don't even know what a metal muff sounds like.
kinda sounds like a grating version of the big muff i guess
big muff can do some old school metal too
the metal muff is shit don't bother
I stand by my opinion that the bass big muff pi is the best muff
I want to recommend that pedal for overdrive. It is excellent for the price (as always with GFS) and if you use both modes at once you can get a really nice distortion through the clean channel. It's pretty thick sounding.
I'm deciding now, cause i want both a chunky djent sound for my 8 string coming in, and a distortion similar to that of Austrian death machine too.
