From what I can tell you guys love these threads, so I figured what the hell
I just started jamming with some people after not really playing for years, and I need an amp. I've been using a POD XT with headphones for the longest time, but plugging it into anything else just sounds terrible. Could be I just don't know how to set the thing up properly, but I'm tired of fucking with it and just want to plug direct into something that sounds awesome.
I don't need anything big, I'm thinking combo solid state and I'd like to stay under $250 if possible. I will just be using it in our practice space, we're a long way from playing shows. I found a used Crate GX140C on Craigslist for $125, and apparently the GX130C was good enough for Cannibal Corpse, and similar to the VH-140C that everyone raves about (which I can't find anywhere), shouldn't be too much of a difference there, right?
I'm open to any other suggestions as well. After my experience with this POD I'm kind of wary about buying anything with amp modeling or any other fancy bullshit. I just want chugs that will release bowels and pinch harmonics that make panties wet. I don't think that's too much to ask for
