hey guys n girls out there im in the market for a serious metal amp i need like 2 channels at least 3 would be better iv been looking into this for ages and still cant decide so i wanna see what everyone recons price is no problem and im big into metalcore as thts wat my band plays stuff like killswitch engage mixed with in flames so i just wanna know wat all your suggestions are for me to check out and if any of you have an amp tht might suit i do have an engl fireball for trade + cash if i need to go with the trade

What's your budget?
Can you go used?

Your ENGL Fireball should be able to do metalcore tones. Why are you trading it?
#3
where are you located?
i can find some good craigslist deals for you.

and check my thread

since you're playing stuff from KsE and In Flames you should perhaps look into the amps those bands tend to use.

KsE= Peavey 5150/6505
Mesa Boogie Rectifiers
Soldano Slo-100
Framus Dragon or Cobra
Diezel VH4

In Flames= Peavey 6505+

yea i have been looking into all that stuff especialy the framus cobra as it has a tone all of its own kinda organic n unique which the framus does very well iv been looking into a randall RM head so i can have wat ever sound i want but i find randall to be a bit generic i.e pantera style of music which i hate lol

COBRA.

It's not that your Fireball doesn't have enough "grunt," it's that the ENGL Ball series can't cut in a mix

What's your EQ anyway?

doubling the wattage is only about a 1/4 or less volume increase, all that does is give you alot more headroom which if your asking for grunt you don't need

lolz.

the Randall RM100 has modules, you can sound different for every module you put in it.
there is also a Framus Cobra module built by Salvation Mods at the Czech Republic.

and where are you from?
Europe?
US?
Australia?

Crazy settings

Anyway, Cobras cut ridiculously. Just get it used and you'll get it MUCH cheaper than new.

go for baron dude.
the MII60(can also be a 100) or the MI60L i think is the amp for you.

but i think Dave(owner of Baron amps) doesn't ship outside the US... but try emailing him.
