Topic starter  

i'm going to start doing gigs soon, but currently i only have this awful sounding 100-150ish watt amp.

my question is whether the bad tone is from the amp itself, or the head? i can't get good sounding mids, growl is nonexistant, etc.

i don't know whether to upgrade the amp or the head, or what to do... i want a growly tone. would getting a better amp head fix this problem?

We need more information.

What amp do you have?
What type of music do you play?
Do you have a PA system?
What pedals do you use?
What guitar are you using?

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.
Did you know that the word "gullible" is not in any dictionary?
