Electric Guitars by ETodd

So we often get asked about what equipment we guitarists use, so I thought I would write a little post about it here so everyone can know! Also, we know that gear can get overwhelming so I included a little section in the bottom called “Where to Start?” with a few suggestions if you don’t know where to go, and want to sound good without spending a fortune.

Hope it helps!

    Another great little low watt amp possibility is the Epiphone Pro Valve Jr. I run that. It has great tube warmth and doesn’t take much pushing to get that nice breakup. I run it into a little 1×12 Vox cab. The whole rig cost me right around $250.

    The only complaint that I have with the Epi is that there isn’t much tone control. It just has one little volume knob. It tends to be a little heavy in the mid-range.
