I know Fenders aren't typically good for metal, but if you had to pick one model what would it be?

I plan to set the volume at 8 out of 12 and use an OD pedal for more gain.
"teh most gains"

I'm using a little Super Champ XD and it works pretty damn well for the price. As long as you're not looking for a death metal amount of gain (I'm not), you could be cool with most types of metal.

fender supersonic would actually do pretty well.

Fender Prosonic, or any Fender tube amp that was first manufactured in the 1980s - most of them are based around Paul Rivera's "Boogie" design.

why fender?

You can buy whatever guitar you want, you don't have to be at a certain skill level to buy one. This is real life, not some guitar-playing RPG where you have to unlock new guitars.

A Fender which does not say Fender on it, but /Bugera or Mesa or some equivalent. Don't get me wrong - i love my hot rod, but it;s a low gain amp, which is why i brought it, i mainly play low gain. If you want metal you want high gain =/= fender

I've heard that the prosonic is the most high gain Fender tube amp. It's been discontinued for a long time now but I've seen some used one.

Prosonic or Supersonic, both great sounding high gained Fenders, Prosonic has been Discoed, but was replaced buy the supersonic, they are pretty much the same amp, the main difference is the Prosonic's is Tube rectified vs. Supersonic's is SS rectified.

made by Fender


Good enough for me


Seriously tho, unless there is some kind patent/copyright/trademark issue I REALLY wish Fender could capitalize on this and come out with some amps that you know......rock a little harder.

Ever heard of a fella named Randall Smith? I've heard he makes some pretty good 'American' amps.

Twin Reverb with pedals is a decent metal setup as long as you aren't looking to play death metal
#24
Actually on a serious note, I'm willing to bet a Fender through a different speaker cab would work fine for metal. In fact, maybe even very well.

Their stock speakers are voiced very much towards cleans and light blues drive, which is 90% of the reason they don't sound good for heavier styles.

Wow, this is stupid. I hope you're kidding. Why do you want THE american rock sound if you want to play metal...

Epic. Must be a troll...

I like the sound of hot rod deluxes, but anything with a clean channel + a decent Engl preamp or similar MAY work.
