So basically my mom is getting a whole bunch of money from my grandmas will. Since i didnt ask for anything for my birthday or christmas she said she will buy me any amp i want! Im not sure what exactly to get though. I want something that is reliable but sounds fat and heavy. I play metal so i want a high gain amp. Not metal like ACDC, more like The Black Dahlia Murder, Job For A Cowboy, Necrophagist etc. I hear good things about Kranks, but i hear ALOT of great things about Mesa Boogies. Any Suggestions? and i would like it to be tube. I prefer that over solid state any day
5150 III 100W, Mesa 4x12 Cab, Framus Cobra Cab, M-Audio Profire 610, ISA One Pre, SC607-b, Equator D5's, Countryman Type 85 Di box, Radial JCR, Superior Drummer, SSD 4 Ex, TS9, NS-2 and the list goes on and on

look into mesa boogie,engls,diezel those are like top brands for amps

the ENGL powerball sounds sick look for videos in youtube
the Diezel vh4s is incredible is very pricy though but it has a beautiful clean tone
also the diezel herbert is awesome as well

thats the few amps im considering but i dont have any money at the moment so maybe try looking into those

try them out if you can to see what suits your taste

maybe somebody else can recommend other amps
my guitar stuff:
ESP JH-600
ValveKing 112
DigiTech Whammy Pedal
Taylor 314CE
Dunlop SW-95 Slash Wah Pedal
Cordoba C7 Nylon String Acoustic Guitar
Metal muff
Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Ash

Don't judge me.

if you can get a Diezel VH4 with the money, then buy that ****ing amp right now

i couldnt quite afford it so i settled for a Mesa dual recitifier instead

but seriously the deizel is the highest gain beast ive ever heard

Randall RM100M. Research the modules and see which ones provide the sounds you'd like. Probably the Grail or Ultra XL. If you don't see yourself using 3 channels, I'd suggest the RM50 though. That way you just have one clean, one distortion, and you can switch any of them out for anything else you want. Plus the RM50 has a built in solo boost Then go for a R212NXT cab and you're set
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Go for Mesa Boogie Mark V or a Mark IIC+. Best amps for ANY style of music. Also look into an Engle SE and a Diezel Herbert. Try a Soldano SL-100 too, because most of the bands you listed use 5150's, and a 5150 is based off a Soldano (at least thats what I hear). Another amp to look into would be a EVH 5150 III. But if I were you, I would get a mesa Mark V or IIC+. Maybe even both and run them in stereo . Cabs, I would suggest anything with V30's. Try a Mesa Rectifier 4x12, ENGL 4x12's, Avatar 4x12's, and Vader 4x12's.
