    hey guys...
    i'm really confused.....i just got a fender i've to buy an amp

    what all should i look for in an amp? like i wanna play some hard rock and some solo, like sweet child o mine solo and what all should i look for in my amp?

    and what are these pedals and processors? do i really need them or are they just for the special effects?

    and what all do i need to get the distorted, heavy metal metallica...and also the sustained notes as in most guitar solos? me out, i know noone who can give me this info

    First of all Congrats on the electric.

    I'm guessing this is your first electric so i suggest you get a small but good amp.
    Preferably a Marshall MG10 or MG15.This is the only decent thing you can get at the price.

    If you really want a good sound you can't depend on the amp alone so you would need a pedal or processor along with the amp. Basically what processors are is one device which can give you an array of sounds from crispy clean to Death metal dirty and all the stuff in between and also all the effects you'd need. I suggest buying some thing like Digitech RP-50 or RP80 or Zoom 505 II if you're interested in buying a processor.

    You could just go to the shop and test the amp and processor you want and if you like it buy it. Best thing to do would be to go with a friend who knows something about guitars and he can help you out.

    Alfons C.F.H seriously the marshalls suck !!!!
    had tried the MG15 and then tried the Roland Cube 15.....!!
    the Roland completely overshadowed my pedals ( AMT Metalizer ) distortion.....but itz round 7 k !!........even itz bass , mid and treble are gud comparitively ( with the marshall )

    @ mr freeze .....
    like if u doint hav a band ..and just play at home ...i recommend u take the Roland ...
    but if u do Gigs and all...then a pedal/processor wud come handy ..czo with a pedal/prcocessor u can hav the variations in distortion but u cant hav the same QUALITY of distortion ( depends on the AMP )

    Marshall is pretty okay. You can get a 15W for 4.5K and Roland Cubes are pretty neat. If you were in Bangalore, I would have suggested you to go for Rondall Mini Stack. For processor forget the Zoom ones, they are pretty bad. Better go for Digitech RP80. That's far better.

    i do believe that all the IITs have some sorta common lingo ... which is then spiced up by the local dialects and nuances ... depending on the place ...
    but still me thinks IITM is the most arcane .,..

    now try to make out sense of this: i used put thadaal fight in my freshie years ... which became slisha less with progrssing months, and zeneraal poonding and cogging made me total zukkster ...


    hey I remeber that we used to have nice Tansen guitars at the music room ...
    fender strat copy ... blue n white colored ... must be around 9K ...
