    A major part of your tone is through your Speakers. The size of the speakers, the shape of the speaker cabinet and its dimension, having open / closed backs, air flow inside all determine the final tone. A lot of mids and bass are as a result of your speakers. When people record, they keep a mic in front of the speaker cabinets and take this mic output to the recording console. A lot of digital processor have this thing called Cabinet Emulation or Cabinet Modelling which helps you to go direct to the recording console or even to you PC. Hope this helps....

    ^ In a way yes.
    But then, you may like the raw tone more than cabinet emulator tone.

    +1

    In short: cabinet modelling is like an effect that simulates the tone you would get from micing a speaker cabinet.

    what is the diff btw an amp, tube and a cabinet? i have a stranger 20W. what category does this fall under? also tell me something about preamp, valves - some terms I picked from another forum.

    Your 20W thingy is a Guitar Amp. For the other things, please Google and find out. It's more fun when you find things yourself.

    ^ Absolutely.
    Amp = amplifier, it amplifies teh signal strength. The signal which comes from your guitar pickups, so that it can drive large speakers (and make sound).

    Tube = vacuum tube valve, an active electronic component that you needn't bother about. Usually triodes and pentodes are referred to as tube, though no on is stopping you from calling a vcuum tube diode as tube. The triodes and pentodes are the most important component in an amplifier.

    Cabinet = box which houses speakers. Though, usually, speakers along with the box are referred to as cabinet.

    Your Stranger 20W has built-in cabinet and uses a solid state amplifier instea of tube amplifier.
    Since it has both amplifier as well as cabinet built-in, you may call it : combo amp.

    Valves = t00bs in guitaring terminology

    Preamp = pre amplifier.

    It falls under the "piece-of-shit" category.

    under piles of it, not just a piece :p:

    but technically it falls under the (solid state) combo amp category

    Well actually, Stranger and Kustom are more or less flat voiced amps.
    So if you got a sansamp sort of modeller + DI box, you can make stranger sound pretty decent.

    But otherwise, it sounds as shitty as a flat voiced amp can for a guitar.
    :barf:

    That's plain audacity....Not everybody needs to own a JCM or for that matter be able to afford a JCM like you. If you cant answer, then stfu than insulting somebody's gear like this in a forum.

    Yes,I agree.Insulting people who learn on mediocre gear is kinda cheap to do.

    Huh? I get heat for being honest? What would you rather hear me say? That it's a great amp? You know it's rubbish yourself. No one NEEDS to own a JCM. And everyone who owns a Stranger pretty much knows that it's a piece of shit. In a little while the poster will know it himself. It's a god-damn open forum. Who are you to tell me to stfu? Free speech bitch. Free speech.

    For a beginner with Rs.2000 budget to buy a guitar amp, what would you suggest. An Engl, Diesel or Dirty Boy. And if somebody owns them, you needn't insult the person for owning it be it bad or even the worst. Free speech never means freedom to insult. Understand Free speech before you comment.
