splawn would be a solid option. i have a nitro and a promod great build quality, hand made in the US by a small crew of guys. they are very helpful and i have spoken to Scott with a question over the phone. so thats kind of nice. he is a good guy.

i paid $1050 for a mint SIG:X shipped. i love that amp. three good channels. i love the cleans and how felixible the second channel is, it can be clean or high gain (i use it for more of a djent) and the third channel is nice for a heavy tone. it loves K85's/K100's.

Good luck with the tweaking... the Sig X has so many switches and knobs that even i feel a little confused (an I use a MkV).

That said... the Sig X is one of the very few amps I've evern tried that covers the clean and high gain sounds very well.

the tweaking isn't as bad with the SIG:X as my MKIVI is.

IMHO the SIG:X it is a better than my MKIV overall in terms of the whole package, but i can't get past my tone on the second channel of my MKIV boosted with my timmy. it is literally godly. and i still have a nice LOG tone for the third channel.

but the SIG:X will do a lot more.with the bloom setting on the cleans they are pure sex. channel three is killer, channel two is perfect for more of a djent type of tone.

Sounds like you need something really gainy and nasty... I'd take a look at a Peavey 5150 or a Marshall JCM900 SL-X.


On the JCM900, stay away from the Dual Reverb. The Mk.III is better, but not as good as the SL-X for over the top gain.

Sorry for the revival of this old thread, but i'm stuck between two options:

First option: Marshall JCM-900 SL-X 100 (1992) with NOS GE tubes for $600

or

Second option: Sovtek MIG 50 for $300

6505+ kicks the shit out of the JCM 900. Put an OD over it for the feedback inbetween notes in powerviolence. If you crank the post and knock down the pre a little it'll get a more vintage, gritty sound.
MIG 50s in my opinion lack the balls for powerviolence and hardcore. If you're set on the JCM and that, for sure go with the JCM.

Make sure to get yourself a tubescreamer for that. Dime the volume and put the drive to 0 you'll be set. The only band i know that really gets a good sound out of one is shook ones.

depends on your definition of good, lol, but the joyo one is very cheap and there's nothing really wrong with it (as long as it's not DOA).

Used Splawn or maybe a Mesa would have been cool, but the JCM900 should work out well for you.

As for pedals, try the Danelectro Cool Cat Drive. Dirt cheap and bloody awesome.

will check out that pedal.
also, powerviolence has been around for almost well over 20 years now. Not that it was ever really that popular and it never will be, but it's nuffin' new.

Definitely check out the Boss SD-1. Super cheap, and it's much more dirty than a typical tubescreamer - that's why I like mine. It's much more gritty and apparent, not smooth and transparent-ish like Tubescreamers are.

I used a ibanez soundtank TS-5 (yes 5) on my fender deville to play hardcore for a year and it did the job perfect, and you can pick them up for about 30 bucks on ebay.

also I know a good amount of powerviolence guitar players that use big muffs (and other fuzzes but mostly muffs) so you should check those out too if you wanna play with some other stuff like that

I had a TS7 and it was somewhat useable as well. But might as well just get the Joyo TS clone like Dave Mc said, those things are actually fairly decent.

I saw Iron Lung last week and the guitarist was using some Marshall rack thing, looks like the 9004 since it was quite shallow.
