Yeah this amp does sound killer, I played it once in my local music shop. But in Germany I only seem to find the 75 combo... Isn't this a hybrid??

That said, I'd say randall and laney have some good ss, as do hiwatt and some of the crates... good luck man, there are some really cool ss amps out there, but there is also a lot of shit , just a case of finding a goody

Never listened to a Hiwatti... Thanks

Randall warhead is worth a look also.

that's fair enough, but the big problem is , in this instance, "new" tends to equate to "worse"

I rocked a Warhead for quite some time. I really wish I would've kept it. It was great for metal, it got really distorted but kept it nice and tight. I still ran an old 6 band EQ out front even though it has one already, but that was a great amp. The RG100s are great too. I really liked the fast attack I got with SS amps, which is why I prefer them to tube.

You could also consider the Marshall mode 4. A lot of people talk shit about but I get some nice tones from it. You can get them used online for about 600. I don't know how much that is in dollars.

I forgot about the Mode 4s. I never used one outside of a studio, but they are also great SS amps. John 5 actually used the Mode 4 amp years ago. I figure if it's good enough for him, it's probably good enough for anyone else looking for a metal type tone.

These are actually hybrids, they have a total of 2 12AX7s.

Are you sure there isn't a recurring theme here?

...and I was just saying, is it just the sound of those 2 amps in-particular you don't like? Or maybe you just don't like the sound of solid-state amps in general?

No I just do not like the sound of these two amps. There ARE solid-state amps that sound really killer
