A used Vetta if you want versitility, or a Mesa Mark III with that budget. Both better than any of those amps on the poll

We should use this as a frame or guideline to all which amp thread. I picked Marshall DSL but i think an marshall on that list will do good with an overdrive to boost.

some form of a messa boogie


A Mesa Express would do fine I guess, right?

it'd do clean and lighter metal fine but for technical death etc it'd need an OD. The mark III series are fine enough by themselves without an OD imo. Great cleans. built in GEQ on some models and a le brootal channel.

edit: Mesa Stilletos. Are also an option. I played one the other day with a MIM strat and had no problem getting a DT "chug" on the od channel.

A Mesa MK IV or a Mk IIc+ would be good
also look in to a JCM900 SL-X 2100 or 2500

I personally don't like the sound of mesas that much, at least judging from clips I've heard. I like the roaring mids sound of a JCM 800, so I would pick one of those babies used, maybe hot rod it and then you'd be close to 1500 $.

I have a 333xl and while it's very versatile and sounds great, I think you could do better for the money. Is there anyone's tone your trying to get for metal, or are you looking for your own sound?

they can do slayer and trash ok by themselves/with an OD help. But for death metal im not entirely convinced on them

Wrong. I have one myself and it can get surprisingly brutal with an OD and an EQ. Would probably sound even better if hot rodded.

Is your budget in canadian or american dollars?
Quote by wolvenrick
I think black doom death metal is just plain stupid. go flame on me but i can't hear nothing but shit on those songs with everything in drop A or below. also it could've been without lyrics as you'd never hear them anyway.

Go for a Mesa f-50 or f-100. Much better cleans than the dual and triple recs and it has more gain then you will ever need. You can also pick them up for fairly cheap because not many people know of them. My second choice would be a mesa mark IV only because it is more expensive and harder to dial in. Either of those amps destroys that list.
