    Should I buy an amp that is better for metal?

    I have a Vox VT40+ and I just bought a guitar with EMG Het Set. Should I buy a different amp if I want to play metal? and if so which amp should I get that is the same price range as the VT40+ ? and is there such a thing as an amp specifically designed for metal?

Here's a list of what's been going on: - crackly input jack - when you put the amp on standby and tap the metal part of the instrument cable (with your finger, pick, whatever) that's plugged...

    N(practice)AD: yes it's a Peavey

    Well after keeping a close eye on the local classifieds I finally tracked down an older PV bandit at what I felt like was a good price (sub $150). Not much to be said about this amp. It does what it's known for: old school death & black metal tones, with PLENTY of gain to spare. Not sure why...

    Crushing bass tone with guitar amp sim?

    I've recently gotten hold of the Neural DSP Darkglass plugin, and suffice to say I'm pretty damn happy with the result; my Fender GL Jazz bass sounds epic through it. My only issue is that it seems pretty difficult to get much "Grind-y" top end out of it. I've heard people saying on numerous...
