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.

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.

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.
