Peavey telecaster clone and modeling amp... man I miss that thing

I had a toneworks ... maybe someone overwritten a patch. Also remember it being a very buzzy noisy pedal but huge amount of sounds for a starter. A friend had one of them line 6S and I remember them sounding bitching at the time.

I'm a drummer but I like to mess around on my grandpa's guitar. He passed away in 2015 and I got to keep his guitars, he has an acoustic and a telecaster. It was actually a big bit of luck that I got to keep it. Originally it was to go to my cousin but everyone knew he would've just sold it. My mom decided to keep it and she put it in her closet. A year or two later I asked about a first act discovery acoustic guitar and my mom brought me to the closet and showed me my grandpa's acoustic and electric, and my dad's bass. I've been using the electric and bass since, I love them. I'm not any good since I never took it seriously but I still have them and I cherish them.

Ah the good ol Line 6 Spider. I had the Spider III when I started playing. Dude at guitar center said it was the best beginner amp ever. Thing sounds absolutely atrocious but recently I find myself wanting to buy one for a black metal project.

I had an absolutely beautiful Alembic Epic 5-string bass with a Zebra wood top. I bought it around 1996 for $1000 but after some weird health problems and business troubles in the 2009 recession, I had to sell it in 2010 (for $1100.) Since then, I've just focused on guitar rather than trying to play both guitar and bass, so I don't feel too bad.

I nearly bought one of theses a few years back. It was around the time they did a production of the new centaur pedal (red one). I was hoping for a demo of that one compared to the original. Kirt Cobain used one I think. The coolest thing (I think) about that pedal is the fact it uses a transparent circuit. So it’s not weighing your signal down in the same way other non-transparent circuits do. I enjoyed watching this video, subscribed and liked. 😎

My gear was a Marshall Lead 12 and a Marlin Sidewinder with the usual suspects a Cry Baby , Fuzz Box, tube screamer and a host of other pedals, modeling amps had not yet arrived in the late 70's early 80's but those little Marshall Lead 12's are the DB's, they can be got but expect to pay around 200 - 250 bucks. There is a version without overdrive also the Keyboard 12, it is a Lead 12 without the overdrive but stick an overdrive pedal on it or even something like that Korg thing you have. Lead 12, Keyboaerd 12 by Marshall great bits of vintage kit.

How on earth did you play your acoustic classical through an amp & pedals?? My first guitar was also a no name classical. Be careful. From my experience, nostalgia can become very expensive. It’s what introduced me to GAS! (Your young guitarist has matured but your charm lies in keeping his enthusiasm alive.)

still use the same gear I had when I was in high school, Marshall JCM900 4102 combo with a Gibson LP Classic. I swapped the ceramic hbs to seymour duncan Alnico II and jumped from 9s to 11s but that's pretty much the same

First amp that wasn’t a 5w piece of cardboard was a Fender Princeton 65 solid state. I was 16? 34 now. Still use it at really low volume with my Classic 30 to Fender up my clean but I sure do want it to evolve into a 65 RI one day :3 I started with classical too man! Figured out drop D on it learning RATM riffs and later found out that Tom Morello used to quietly jam on them a lot. Those box riffs do feel really good with the wide string spacing.

From the age of 12 til about 18, I had a Takamine Jasmine. Everything about that guitar suited me. My roommate at school knocked it over and snapped the headstock clean off. That's the one that got away. Now I have a Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat acoustic/electric. I CANNOT imagine myself without that. It's become my most cherished piece.

oooooh the line 6 spider III. I too had the 75w version as a teenager, that and a Peavey Raptor plus exp in bright red. Such a garbage guitar that I cherished for years. A humbucker and 2 single coils paired with all the settings on the line 6 gave me a ton of tone options (all of which sound flat as hell now compared to my twin reverb) but it was enough for teenage me to rock my nuts off in my parents basement without being so loud that I pissed everyone off.

Zoom 505, Zoom 508, the mid 90's DOD gimmick pedals, my old '88 Bullet Tele guitar (which I actually miss, it had a star on the headstock), Digitech RP 7, running guitar thru a 120 watt GK bass head, VHT cabinets .... So many bad pedals and dollars poorly invested. Have to admit, it was so fun back then. Being a budding guitar player in the early to mid 90's was a fun time and it taught a lesson in the long run; less pedals, more practice.

As a kid I loved my Boss Metal Zone pedal. Had is for many years and it got lost in translation somewhere. Fast forward about 25 years and I saw one at my friend's garage sale and I asked her how much for it. She said "Um, I dunno, what do you have in your pocket?" I dug in my pocket and I pulled out 58¢. She said "ok, that'll work". SCORE!

For me it's a 1985 Tokai F-55 Super Edition Random Star in a wine red burst. Super rare. Not worth a lot. They go for around $350 - $650.00 but the color was apparently the most rare. I find them for sale in white and black all the time. Blue and solid red from time to time but in six years of searching I have never seen the wine red burst come up for sale. I want my guitar back!

I have a line 6 vetta, by mixing and blending two different types of amps, cabs and tones you could get some great sounds, mixing a low volume clean sound under a distorted sound gives much more clarity to the sound

I had this DOD Grind/ IT practice amp and I must say, for a beginners ear, I could get reasonably close to all of the popular rock and metal tunes i loved at the time! For a little cheapy, beginner, practice amp combined with my entry level Ibanez RG model and a Digitech Grunge distortion, in my mind was a wonderfully dirty yet versatile little beginner rig! For a beginner Rocker/Metaller(?) I'd probably still recommend it

"Something just possesed me to go to drop D" :-D Man! I'm not watching a lot of guitar-youtube, but I came across this video because it had a cool title and that line made my day. I also had multi-fx-pedals at that age - first one was a DOD in 1998 (loved it), then one of the very first zooms in 2000 (programming sounds on it was fun and it looked ugly, lol). For the longest time I had no other amp than one my dad built by himself in the 70's. It sounded pretty thick, untill it broke and my dad had no idea about the circuit anymore.

Dudes, the stuff I started on is so vintage I can no longer afford it. I still have most of my first 'pro' rig, though; a Roland CE1 chorus split the signal to two 4X10 combos. Ampeg VT40 with 6550s and Fender Super Reverb with 6L6s, a Boss DS1 I stepped on for solos, and a Dunlop wah I eventually gifted to a stranger on the internet.
I have this exact amp as a home amp. Need a proper amp soon, i still like it tho but the clean sounds are terrible.

Johnson J-Station was FIRE. Had one like 20 years ago, and I just bought one on reverb a couple months ago just for fun. Still rocks.

Mine Peavy Classic 2-12 inch speakers 2 channels with Phase Shifter and Reverb , Ibanez Iceman guitar , graduated to Marshall JCM 800 half stack ( 4x12 ) ,.Morely.Volume Wah Boost , Heil Sound Talkbox ....
@Kenneth Meek haha yeh man I want to go buy that rig set up again . The JCM 800 rig set up was when I started playing real gigs as a teenager. I bought all my stuff with my own dough , I worked in a European restaurant and then a high volume franchise restaurant as a cook all through high school , paid well , Chefs were / are cool and many are musicians too. I am now approaching 60 , still cooking as a Master Chef and still playing gigs! LOL

My most nostalgic gear I have is a Cimar dreadnaut acoustic that was bought for me by my late Dad in 1983 after months of 11-year-old pouting & whining. As best as I can tell, it's an Ibanez rip-off from the 70s. As an instrument, it's a piece of . that has definitely seen better days. But to me, it's the Most Precious. Everything else I own can burn. But not that guitar.
Kenneth Meek
Kenneth Meek 6 days ago
Nah, Cimar is like a budget level sister company of Ibanez. Their version of Squier by Fender. I had an RG style one back in the 90's that actually said "Cimar by Ibanez" on the headstock and i LOVED that thing! Beginner Metal gold! Lol
