Modeling amp tries to sound like the amps it's modeling. Modeling amps have many different amp sounds. You can have analog modeling amps too. Tech 21 amps are all analog if I remember right and they are modeling. You can have tube modeling amps too like Peavey Vypyr Tube (hybrid). Most of the modeling amps are solid state. Solid state only means transistor amp. And there are non-modeling solid states like Marshall MG and all those starter pack amps.

Honestly, for GNR and Metallica, I would go Splawn, especially since you like KEA Metallica, which was all Marhsall. GNR was always Marshall, or course, and like I said, Splawn does Marshall better than Marshall does Marshall.

My Vote is Splawn.

I thought I read somewhere that metallica recorded quite a bit with Mark IIC+ which is one of the voicings in the Mark V.

I don't disagree that its a more modern voiced amp, however, with channel two...Edge, Crunch and Mark I, along with the graphic EQ and main eq settings you can get classic tones that are will stand up.

The cleans of Channel FAT in particular are awesome, and again, with proper EQ, power setting and the diode or tube tracking a huge range of tones are achievable.

The MarkIIC+ was on Master of Puppets. He said that he wanted a tone similar to Kill Em All, which was Marshall JCM800's boosted through 1960 cabs.

Yup. I thought their early stuff was a modded plexi but that is not worth discussing.


As a mark V owner I can tell you its a hell of an amp. It's not really voiced for what you are after though. It's extremely flexible and can cover a ton of ground but it isn't british voiced.

If you said you wanted Master of Puppets, dream theater and Lamb of God we would be pointing you towards the mark V.
