    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!

    Found this through Google: http://www.guitarsite.com/database/Stores/rec/6067/wwwboard/messages/12.shtml

    Anyway if you are looking at an amp under 8k I would highly recommend the Roland Cube-15 which I believe sells for about 6.5k. It's a modelling amp so you will get several amp models which are emulated quite decently. However the real treat is the clean channel which is modelled on the famous Roland JC-120 Jazz Chorus amp which is a favorite among jazz musicians.

    Seriously that is one amp worth the cash.

    ^^lol
    i've been pursuading him to buy that amp ASAP !!...* kabhi mera baat nahi sunega *
    other than it being modelled like the Roland JC-120 , the Cube 15's distortion kick's ass !
    especially the METAL STACK setting. never found an AMP in that price range with that much of gain

    @alfons- chup ho jaa!!, yahan bade log baat kar rahe hai ...hahahha
    @bhagwan - which amp are u talking about
    @dmf- yeah dude, i know about the Roland. But ecmans are tube amps..and a tube amp for 8k , even if it is of decent quality is a great buy.

    Hohum.

    Tube vs Solid State.


    D00d if you play metal etc, what is the point going for tubeys?
    On the other hand, if u play old school rock then Solid State will sound "duh"

    Seriously cool deal....
    hey sridhar..I have heard of someone called bobby in Blore who makes tube amps at around the same price(8-10K)..any idea about his stuff?

    I heard that bobby is'nt quite good with the amps. Well i have'nt played in those amps but ask ronnie he knows bout him i think

    chintan9 yay! i won the ipod!

    Bobby makes great practice amps at very low costs. His tube amps are fairly decent and definitely worth the money.

    AMT sucks with tube amps :) . Overdrive pedals like TS9 will really rule.
