In your opinion, what gear would help to create a metallic sound? It's hard to explain what that means, but it would be sharp tones, my bullet mic for vocals, etc. I am looking into buying a metal resonator guitar, but I'm requesting help on effects and amps. Do certain brands learn toward this type of sound? I don't know if it fits into classic rock or metal or anything specific. Maybe it's more blues / electric folk?

What's your budget? I don't want to recommend a Triple Rectifier when you will never have that kind of money.

Build a large box-like room out of sheet metal. Record inside there at a decent volume. Bingo Live however, I guess you're kind of restricted to playing in metal-walled/roofed venues :/

In all seriousness though, I'm not quite sure what you're after... a twangy, resonator sound? Just get a resonator and you should be there really on the clean channel.

Lol, how would buying a Mesa Triple Recto. stack help him?

I guess what I really want is to avoid anything that would detract from the sound. For example, I wouldn't want to buy new pickups for my guitar or get some sort of pedal that detracts from the "tinny" sound.

What the hell? Triple Rectifiers are for a 'metal' (genre) sound, not a 'metallic' sound. You don't need to spend thousands on an over-priced stack, all you need is a decent clean amp in combo form with a decent set of valves.

Buy a resonator, and then look at Fender amps or something that won't alter the sound of the guitar too much on the clean channel. The metallic sound will come from the guitar, not the amp.
