I'm going to be buying a Telecaster in the near future at least I'm pretty sure I am and was wondering if there was any particular amp that sounds best with this. Trading in my Behringer GMX212 as its just too big for me right now.
It depends on the tone your looking for.
Well I like to play stuff along the lines of Pearl Jam & Red Hot Chili Peppers.... and some Hendrix that I can learn, if any lol.
I don't want a tone that is too 'thick' if that makes any sense.
Well, all those guys you mentioned use(d )Marshall stacks so I'm guessing you'd need something that'll give you a pretty Marshall kind of tone
Thanks for that, ill have a look at testing out a couple of Marshall's then.
Look for the 800 series if you can find them
Marshall stacks are way cool, but unless you're playing stadiums, you probably don't need one. A tube amp with EL34's would do nicely, but tubes run kinda pricey. One nice option is the Rivera line, which are very nice ( possibly a Pubster or Clubster, which are something under a grand ). Another possibility is the Line6 series - which are digital - and tend to do well with amp modeling ( including Marshalls ). These are quite affordable and I've played through one for over six months at my guitar instructor's studio. See Harmony Central for reviews. Tele's rock.
I have a tele, and play mostly country, but I use a Deluxe Reverb, has a single 12" speaker, with a Behringer X V-amp for effects and it sounds really nice..
Is it a Blackface or Silverface
I used owned a early 60's blackface and it was a great amp for the studio. It had that nice blues breakup when cranked up. Wish I had it back
