No, not at all. They are completely separate things, just play whatever scale you want over any kind of chord changes. And modes? Those don't exist. Music wasn't even invented until like 1997. I doubt people would have been able to figure all that stuff out so quickly. So what are yall talking about?

Just never spend money on something you haven't put a lot of thought into and make sure you enjoy it. I was set on the legacy for awhile, but I'd get between two and five hundred dollars and then spend it on something. All the while wishing I had a nicer amp. Now I realize that if I had cut out some...

If you work on any specific lick slowly at first and build up speed, keeping it clean, and you can play it slowly, as well as your maximum tempo cleanly. Then it is only a matter of time before you can play it at the desired tempo.

Clean tone is dynamic and not muddy, and there's lotsa different distortion sounds you can get from it.

Great little amp 8) .

A low level of noise from any amp is to be expected and it'll get louder as you turn up the volume.


But do take the other member's suggestions and try noise gates and using your own cables as well as standing farther away from the amp and playing it.

I've never heard of that, so you're saying that if there is something right in front of the speaker cone of a 2x12 that the cabinet will sound better?

I think the legacy has a removable back as well.

I had a similar experience with the JSX..I really liked the head more than the combo. Shame I have no way of test driving a legacy without practically buying one.

The combo is going to be heavy as anything and still pretty bulky.

If you want maximum portability and transporting ease + future expandability, I'd go with the head + a 2x12 cab, then later on an additional 2x12 cab if you want even more sound.

Yeah, the head is in pretty poor condition anyways, the knobs are loose. The Mid EQ barely even works...

If the sale price goes down to around 200 maybe I'll get it, but I'll probably have to spend that much just fixing it up!

I'll probably get one off the bay if I do decide to get the amp.

Depending on ones personal setup, plugging straight into the computers mike jack with an adapter may yield poor sound. Miking an amp will actually sound better if one has the proper equipment Also, wouldn't MSN "lag" with the sound a little? Causing jamming to be pretty difficult or nearly impossible?

Sovtek Mig-50.

Found one used at guitar center for 400..I really like the sound of it and I think it would suit my needs perfectly. My only concern is the price, I'm pretty sure it's old and discontinued, all the reviews I found were from a few years back, but they had paid on average of 200 for the head....so is ...

I hate it when strings feel too loose, feels like I can't pick hard without them flopping around/causing excessive fret buzz, even with higher action. So I like the strings feel tight and fluid at the same time. I always used 11 gauge and standard tuning to get the tight-ness that I wanted, but some...
