I have 4 guitars. Down from 8.

All in different tunnings. Half are FR and can't easily be adjusted.

You can never have too many guitars.


That being said your guitar is decent so you should put your money towards a good amp in my opinion. Have you been to your GC recently? Even the shitty ones stocked up for the holidays. You should swing by and see what they have and don't overlook the used section.

Hell for the money you have you can get a dual rec or mark IV if you don't get a guitar.

yeah ive seen some older mark ivs for like 800-900 range. might be the best idea. they just dont look the hottest. i mean i can justify the big bucks if I dont buy an amp for a long ass time. without a spare guitar i could go 800-900 for a combo. i wouldnt mind. but getting toward bewer mark territory getting kinda crazy. id like to keep it under 900 total if I could.

If you can afford a Mark IV buy one and think about another guitar later. Forget about what you think it looks like, all that matters is how it sounds and they sound great.

Dementiacaptian just bought a mark iii.

You can PM him for questions or bump his NAD.

Mark IV is better than the mark three hands down in my opinion. I say this has it has more controls and separate EQ for each channel.

If you don't think it looks good.... First off you are crazy and second what does looks have to so with it?

Not sure if you can be helped....




Also dual rectifiers are going for cheap these days as well. You will need a cab but could get a 2x12 and a rec for 1k.


Also Krankenstein "plus" might be worth looking at. Make sure it is the plus model. The originals were too thin.

ohh I was just talking about a few of the amps I saw from the 90s. thats all. Il check into that thread man. thanks. the mark iv here is 1349. thats alot more than id like to spend. ill just keep looking the next 50 days or so and see what I can find. im also guess the mark 3 with the eq wouldnt be a good idea? i see one of those in good shape for $899.

It will be another 10 page thread. I can. See it already.

Where are you looking for these prices? GC or CL?

Chances are you would be happy with a JSX or 6505 but since you don't want to test them out you won't know. Don't repeat your last mistake. Go to GC and sit and play a bunch of the amp. Play the new DSL, play a 6505, play a PODhd.


Where do you live? We can look on CL for you. Don't be afraid to show up and test an amp. If you don't like it dot buy it. Test, test, test and more testing before you buy. Don't repeat the JC.

I retune onstage at every gig. While our vocalist is announcing the next song, our other guitarist and myself will retune between Drop Db and Eb Standard. It takes no more time than switching guitars does.

Like I said, if you're talking open tunings, or drastically different tunings that require multiple strings to be re-tuned, that's different. However, if it came down to "new guitar and decent budget amp" or "Epic as shit amp that is perfect for me" I'm picking option two every day of the week.

Also, I only use one guitar onstage, but I have a backup in it's case within 10 steps of me at every gig, and then I've got a bunch of cheapo guitars at home that "I'm gonna upgrade eventually"

Yeah try them out. The Krankenstein "plus" is great for all out metal. You can't dail it incorrectly. The mark has less gain but more variety and flexibility. Also a pain in the ass to dail in on channel 3.

or he needs to do his weekly deductions a little differently?

or maybe he wants that big check every year, some people can't save so they do that.

but letting the gov't hold that much of your money every year? no thanks.

I felt my name was mentioned.

The Mark III is sweet. The XXX is sweet. The 6505+ is also sweet. My point here, is that there isn't an amp that isn't awesome for something.

I think you just don't really know what you want right now dude. I would definitely go play that Mark IV, see if that sort of sound would be worth it to you. I think that you would be happy with the 6505+ as well, even with my Mark III and VHT, no matter what new amp I get I still love the 6505+ tone. Just get out there and play dude.
