What Do You Think is the King of thrash metal amps
 
So the holy grail of thrash metal amps! What do you think it is? Whats that one amp that can just produce the perfect tone for that speed and heavy riffs! Tell me what you think \m/

well it has to be a boosted JCM800.

It depends from person to person. I myself feel that it'd be an ENGL Powerball, Fireball, or Savage. Some will say the JCM, others will say the 6505.

I'm quite sure this thread will be very quickly shut down. So Mesa Mark or a boosted Rectifier before the thread is closed.

Marshall Kerry King sig sounds pretty good, Kelliher of Mastodon plays one on a few songs in his set.

Boosted JCM 800, or Soldano SLO

The best traditional thrash amp is the JCM 800 and it's probably the most well known thrash amp. However, you're really not limited to that Marshally sound in thrash music, bands like Anthrax have used Randall/Mesa amps a lot on their recording and tours.

I just personally love the punch on Marshally amps, but the 6505 is no slouch either.

2 ch Triple Rec, SLO100, Bogner XTC or Twin Jet, Rivera KR100. :)

A JCM800 with a tight pedal in front of it. Or the Randall RG100 with a pedal. The RG100 is solid state I know, but its one of the best all around solid states in my opinion.
