Thread: Electric Guitar/Acoustic Amp?

  1. #11
    Most acoustic amps have a tweeter of sorts in them. If you play too loud and especially if you have a pedal to boost or overdrive the sound, you run the risk of burning out the tweeter.

    yah, thats kind of what i was afraid of.
    so we went out & found a new Marshall, one of these new (very new) models with electronics i dont understand & effects she can download.
    anyhow, we're in the process of moving again, so it'll be at least another month before we can get the music room straightened out to where we can find all our stuff.
    thank you

    Good choice. The G600 Aspen I just got sounds much better with an electric guitar than the G300 Tamarack does, but I wouldn't dare put an overdrive in front of it for the reasons mentioned above, though on those it's easy enough to disconnect the tweeter.

    She'll have way more fun with a modern electric guitar amp.

    Was it a Marshall Code? Those are pretty cool. I played with one at GC for a while but didn't play with any of the downloading capabilities. That's where it's at these days, though. Even with my Axe-FX i rarely build my own patches - I find someone who already built what I want and download it. Gotta love the Internet!

    As an old-school tube amp snob who's built his own amps and has also all but converted to digital with an Axe-FX (or two), I'm here to tell you that digital modeling has come a loooong way in the past 5-10 years. I bet she'll get a lot of mileage out of that amp.
