    On my Fender Squire 15(I know, cheap amp), it has Vol/Gain/MV + Treb/Mid/Bass.
    No matter how I adjust it, I can’t get solo notes to “scream” such as at 04:50 in the vid. They sound almost the same as with a quiet/clean setting. Power chords sound great and it’s more than loud enough in the house, but what’s the problem? I thought it was my playing technique, but I’ve accomplished it on other amps(that other players already had set up). I played acoustic for years, and am new to electric.

    Im am using a Fender Mustang IV at the moment. Brilliant amp with thousands of features, but expensive. NZ$1100 it cost me, which is about US$860. But I don’t have a lot of experience with amps sorry. All I can say is keep away from brands such as ashton. I know Marshall, Fender and Vox are reliable amps, but thats about it.

    I had the same problem with the same amp. Notice it stops if you mute the the strings, which could (but not limited to) indicate possible pick-up problems. Not that your pick-ups are bad persay, but not the best quality pick-ups.

    Yaa.. Single coils are genrally noisey… And digital amps can be quite noisey… Try rolling back the volume on your guitar

    I just bought a new amp (marshall MG15DFX) But when I turn on the overdrive and turn up the volume, I get alot of noise out of the amp (without me playing) Is this normal?

    I hate how they put controls on top or back of some amps. My Champ 600 isnt such a problem cause it only has a volume. But my Roland is a bitch to mess with most of the time. I like how the Fender Deluxe Reverb or Marshall does it.

    Actually, I’m wrong, there are 5 Modes (Which you might consider presets), but I still can’t get that sort of sound. I’ve tried tuning my guitar and fiddling with the knobs, but I can’t seem to get it to work.

    Question: I have a “Roland Micro Cube” amplifier. I am a beginner at playing the guitar and don’t have alot of money to spend. I listen to alot of Classic and Modern Heavy Metal (Such as Ozzy, Five Finger Death Punch, and Metallica). I’ve tried quite a few combinations but they always come out with a Blues sound. Is there anyway you can help me get that Rock/Metal sound? It is a “Basic” amplifier and offers a few effects, but no presets.

    Audiophiles have long been into the tube versus solid state debate. The main difference is that tubes overload gracefully. When they distort, they produce even order harmonics,which means the second harmonic is consonant (sounds in hamony) with the fundamental. You can get tube distortion at any volume level by overdriving the preamp circuit.You can also use a tube preamp with a solid state power amp, but the tubeyest sound comes from all tubes.On the other hand, tubes = more hassle.
