    That Laney looks cool. (As such, SS Laneys >>>>>>>>> SS Marshalls)

    It's also 50W so it will be more suited for gigs.
    You might still have to mic it though.

    Also, looks into the Vox AD30VT.
    With some haggling you could get it down to about 15K.
    (Not bajaao though.)

    i too vote on the Vox.
    You dont need to change the pickup just put that money into the amp..

    I vote for SH-6 in the Bridge.

    Im getting that (or SH - 5) for my guitar too.
    The vox is really amazing, responds to guitar output in a way very similar to a real tube amp.
    Try it at Musicians Mall, buy it at Alberto's.

    You dont usually change just one pick. theres difference of gain or something..

    Not true. You can change whatever you want.
    There will always be an output difference between your neck, bridge and middle pickups.
    That's what pickup height adjustment is for.

    The Vox won't necessary make your stock pickups suddenly sing. The Vox is a hybrid, it's a tube pre-amp but still a SS power amp. The difference that the Seymour Duncan's will bring is definitely noticeable.

    I have a Laney LX30R and it's more than enough to jam with, I don't have to set the volume beyond 3-4. Although, I jam on an open stage, so I don't know about a small room with maddening drum reverberations.

    If you pick up both the Vox and the pickups that'll probably be the best outcome.

    what do u guys think of the laney amp...TFX1.??..bcause i m not sure if i can afford both a vox and a new pickup.....
    Also i will replace my bridge pickup and use it as the sole pickup in my guitar...cause i play clean sounds pretty less(in my band i mean). I just want a gud distortion sound. so it comes to this:
    VOX AD30VT + Stock Pickups
    Cheaper amp(laney) + Syemour Duncan SH-6
    i m confused...!

    I say the Laney + SD because I don't think the Vox is what you're looking for in your sound. What distortion are you using?

    Try the laney if you can.

    It has some nice features. (Fx loop, footswitchable channels etc)
    Then try the Vox and choose between them.

    bajaao told me that LAney TFX1 was out of stock..and laney stopped making it....
    so i finally bought Laney LX65D(65Watts, Inbuilt Digital Effects
    ) . I got a gud deal from furtados. They charged me 13.4K for the amp including the foot switch. Bajaao has priced this amp 15.8K and foot switch additional 1.1K = 16.9K.
    Thanks for the help...
