I'm from Italy. I'm searching for a kirk hammett-like sound.
I've just bought a Mesa Quad preamp, because a person advised me that amp.
Now i'm lookin 4 a good poweramp. I can't manage to find a strategy 400, but i found a used 500.
Do u think it's a good choice, shall i buy it? and what about speakers?
My guitar is a ESP KH-2 Custom Shop, with EMG 81/85..
The 500 seems like a pretty good alternative if you can't find the 400. As for speakers, look into Avatar speakers.

-Gibson LP VM
-Silvertone Kentucky Blue
-MXR CC Delay
-Ibanez TS-9
-Egnater Rebel 20
-Avatar 1x12

My rig is simple
Haha. UG's Chuck just said chuck. haha
You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.
I'd go with either a Mesa/Avatar/Framus/Orange 2x12 or 4x12 with Vintage 30's.

right Metallica is a given. Personally I like to pretend the bus exploded and killed them all in '86.

Idk about what you'd find in Italy, but I've seen a few Marshall EL34 100/100 and 50/50 monoblocs on Ebay over here, and they're quite a good little unit.

As for speakers, I don't really know, I'm biased to Marshall cabs in that respect.

ok, but should I look for particular cabs (it seems to me they usually have a maximum power capability) or everyone is right?
anyway i think i'll take the strategy 500. thank you!
