Re: Guitar Amps
Like with drums go out and play some stuff and find what you like. "Crunch" is subjective. Marshall Crunch, Mesa Crunch, and Peavey 5150 Crunch are three completely different things and that doesn't even get into Bogner, Orange, Badcat etc... That being said Fender Strats aren't known for crunch either, usually one needs Humbuckers to get the classic crunchy distorted sound.
Amateurs practice until they get it right.
Pros practice until they can't get it wrong.
