I'm looking to purchase an Epiphone Dot Deluxe Flametop Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar.

What type of amps/effects/pads should I buy to play Jazz?
Like The Reign of Kindo-type jazz. Or any type of jazz, for that matter.
I love playing Jazz, but I want to play it right. Help?

Message me or reply if you have any suggestions. :)

I listened to some songs from Reign of Kindo, and it seems that you would want an amp with good cleans. They didn't seem to use much effects, except a little reverb.

Fender amps are known for having good cleans (I like the Princeton Reverb and Blues Jr.) and you could also look into the Roland Jazz Chorus amps, if you don't mind using a solid state. I would reccomend just going into a store and playing every amp you can in your price range. :)

the Roland Jazz chorus or the Polytone and very popular jazz amps as is the Roland cubes. Nice pick on the epiphone dot, i have a standard one and love playing it. I'm hopeing to get some hardware upgrades on it soon.

I like to play with a bass amp. I get a nice tone out of it.

Depends on what tone you're trying to make really. I go for the smooth clean Jazz tone, which doesn't require much apart from a little reverb and sometimes a tiny bit of distortion. The point in a great tone is that it's what pleases that musician, it's about what they like the most and personally feel as though it helps complete what they're trying to express.

Try things out, mess around with equipment in the stores, it's down to what you personally feel is amazing. You won't know until you try.
