Wink Beefing it up :B

In my first thread, I asked what amps would be good for doom and sludge. I probably shouldve mentioned that my band is like a mix of H.I.M. and Melvins. I traded my 42 inch plasma flat screen for my rhythm guitarists Orange TH30, ZVex Fuzz Factory and a two dimesacks. I might get a BuddaSD80 Head though. I was wondering what I could do to give my tone that extra beefy kick I want. I changed my rig a little too. And by all means, share your rigs. Maybe you could influence me ^-^ Thanks!

Guitars: Schecter Hellraiser C-1 w/ Lace Dirty Heshers (Bridge) Alumitone(neck)
Amplifiers: Orange TH30 Head w/ Mesa Oversized Reco 4x12 cab
Effects: Zvex Fuzz Factory, Dunlop JC95, Ibanez TS808 Tube Screamer, MXR KFK-1, MXR M-169, TC Electronic Dreamscape, Korg Pitchblack Tuner

Why didn't you just continue this in your first thread?

Budda amps are great. I had the 30. Rediculously loud, and it has plenty low-end kick to it. They would do just fine with doom and sludge.

The guitarist of HIM uses Marshalls and Laney VH100Rs to record. But a lot of that beef probably comes from a fuzz pedal.

You need to look at Matamp or Electric amp. Both are way better than Budda for doom and sludge.

I play in a Prog-metal band that has some sludge/doom influenc and I use a Marshall JCM2000 DSL100.
Also look at the Krank Chadwick amps you can get them for <$600 I think they are good for what your doing.
Laney GH50/100/100TI are nice
Laney AOR is like one of the best Sludge amps out there Sleep uses them and they go cheap used

I see your using a Tube screamer, Maybe try something like the Hardwire CM-2 or Digitech bad Monkey. They have bass and Treble knobs so you can dial in the tone better. I use a Bad Monkey with my DSL100 and it deff fattens up the tone.


I like the TH30, but the EL84 tubes are not going to get as fat of a tone as a bigger tube like EL34/6l6/KT88

If you are ever buying an AOR, punch it firmly on top of the cabinet while it's turned on and turned up. If it lets out a loud pop walk away - unless you are capable of replacing tube sockets or it's cheap enough that paying somebody else to do it will still bring it in within budget.

Robbgnarly, I think your on to something. Thats a great idea and I honestly never would've guessed about the tubes. I'm gonna have to switch out the EL84s for KT88s. And I'll check out that bad monkey :p

NO PLEASE DONT.
Your amp is made to only accept EL84 tubes only you can not fit KT88 tubes or any other type of tube in it.

Hitting things is a time honoured fault finding technique. The alternative is to get into the back of it and wiggle things about. You aren't going to be doing that in a shop so the only option available is to give it a thump on the outside. If the douche in the shop complains just say, "If it can't take that then it's faulty. What are you trying to hide? Are you trying to sell me a faulty amp?"
