what is a good amp for a G-400

Recommended Posts

Wow; alot of variables to consider when recommending an amp. Theres many affordable amps offered by different builders nowadays. First you have to decide how many watts you need. Are you just playing at home ? Do you want tubes or solid state ?

Go to your local music store and play different models from differnt builders and see what catches your ear.

I have a G-400 with bigsby whammy and play rock' date=' metal, and classic rock. I have a fender ten-watt amp. What would be a good second amp?[/quote']

 

I really like my ad50vt with my G400 but there are a lot of good amps out there.

A Marshall of course. I have two. Both solid state. One I used to gig with and a smaller one for the bedroom. I prefer them in solid state. The Marshall I had eons ago also was solid state. I still own a Fender Sidekick reverb from the 80`s also solid state.

But I do regret getting rid of my two Fender tube amps. A Champ and a Deluxe reverb. I have to justify that I don`t play in a band anymore and have no room for everything so I downsized per wife`s orders.

Ohhhhh, that IS a shame! Deluxe Reverb is one of THE best medium size Fender amps, going.

A true "Classic!" Original "Blackface?"

I don't care for the inability of a solid state marshall to get a good "in between" type of gain sound. It's either "clean" or "metal"...you can turn the gain down but it still sounds like "distortion" instead of gain or overdive...very harsh and not smooth.
