Thanks for the friend invite. Yup, the Rat Bugera is a great little amp that's quite loud on the 5W setting and useful at home on 1W. It also has a Hi/Mid/Lo gain and an input selector. Sounds great with a classic-style overdrive pedal in front of it. I like it a lot. Good luck with your quest !

Bugera v5 rat modified amp on clean sounds with flat pup and a diglydog fiddle stick

http://www.cigarboxnation.com/video/bug-amp-special-treat-for-clock

a nice amp I would recommend, not no buzz or hiss and its a valve amp!

Yup that Rat amp sounds great El84 valves, I got an old mullards in mine

add a little valve drive pedal and your away/ Blues driver is good with it too. The reverb sounds good.

Also see the Gear for music copy of the fender blues amp in blue £249,I got one on the bay for £100 a great little amp apart from the colour. Its a fender junior blues amp clone, i drive mine with a orange micro cube lol. the rat stuff has power scaling so you can turn it up but the output down so you still have neighbours. See my page I have tried most amps. In the end a 1x12 cab and any valve amp driven hard works for me :>)

if you want cheap a microcube works, i quite like the twin input version.

Also a digital tuneable fender mustang amp also gives you most sounds you could need. I have had the bug rat against one and you coukldt tell the difference on the right settings. But i love that warm fuzz.but RAT amps dont buzz or hiss at all, so you can record with them. Unlike the fender clones which are fine live.

A great gigging amp would also be a tiny terror combo but no reverb, but the fender clone has the reverb but a 10" not a 12"...so each to their own

For recording I use a line pod UX2 and acid pro, for lots of latency issues ! lol but it sounds greeeat.

hope this helps, go rat you cant go wrong but pricey

hi there, thanks for the shout. havent been on here in a while:)

Yeah! Plus coordinating those hammer ons and pull offs with the alternating thumb is kind of a juggling act. Keep at it!

Thanks for the friend request and your kind words about my Mystery Train video. It was an arrangement I came up with on my own for 3 string CBG. There are a few good tutorials on you tube for 6 string but the trick is to figure out how to adapt those to CBG gits. I might have to put this on my list of tutorial requests.
