The three amps I'm deciding between are an Egnater renegade, 1x12, Egnater tourmaster 2x12, or a fender supersonic.

Now I know the decision is eventually going to be mine, but I don't have the luxury of playing all of these amps in the same environment, so I need some help

If people could give me some insight as to some simple things, in the form of a list if possible Ie. (1. renegade, 2. supersonic...) for some of these questions.

Versatility(Im playing anywhere from jazz fusion, and neoclassical music-Nile and Vital remains with some pedals.)

Cleans- I'm gonna assume the fender, just by default.

Most versatile distortion.. anywhere from smooth, high mids, to mid scooped heavy stuff

The ability to handle pedals, I know none of these amps, as far as im concerned will give me an onboard extreme metal tone, so I'm gonna need some distortion pedals for the clean channel, or overdrive pedal use on the distortion channel

And all around value, quality, or just your opinion on why or why not, one or the other (weather its size, weight, durability..)

Thanks a ton in advance guys, I always get good answers.

What's your budget and why these 3? All aren't exactly suited for the brootz, but better for the more midgain stuff.

My budget I would have to say is about 1200-1600. And I played a blackstar in the store, but the guitar center by my house definitely does destroy the tone of anything you try to play.. So i'll have to find one somewhere else, thanks.

I dont really like that amp, I played it at a local store today. I just didnt think it was as good as the egnater

Well even though you said in another thread that metal wasn't a man priority, it would hurt to spend your big budget on something that can do metal tones as well as the other tones.

I say a used Mesa Boogie Rectoverb. They are versatile amps with nice cleans and distortion with modes on each of it's 2 channels for different voicings. It will leave you with plenty of money left for a nice cab and some quality pedals too.

As for the swim team member that drowned, it just means the swim team just got a lot better. Same with him too, it's time to move on, the weakest link is gone...

Ok, the budget is anywhere up to about 1300, and I dont care if its used, for gigging and jamming, as well as bedroom practice, Im currently using a fender HRD, with a nady TD-1 for my main smooth distortion, and an MT-2 when i need to play metal, but it sounds like shit. My other option, is keeping my setup and getting like a 6505 or 5150 combo, with a switch to alternate between them.

If you want to know, out of the three you picked the Tourmaster has the most versatility. It has four channels, each with a vintage/modern switch. And it does have quite a bit of gain... you might need a bit of a boost, but only if you're playing really high gain stuff.
I have a huge fear if rays.

do this, and keep your eyes open to Clist. There is stuff probably added daily.

I wasn't a big fan of the Tourmaster for the price. Not BAD amps I'm just sayin'.
#18
Yeah exactly. You think you can answer some questions about the amp?

Like, does the clean channel compete with my fender at all?

Is it versatile?

and can the gain get very heavy, because I don't need it like that all the time, in fact I would prefer it not to be. Considering I love all the egnater amps I've tried, and they're not at all incredibly gainy

And last but not least, will it handle pedals well?
#19
I'm not an Egnater fan so you probably don't want to talk to me

it has a nice clean channel for sure, not a Fender, but that is true for a lot of amps.
yes, versatile.
no not a gain monster as you know, the gain knob works well up to say 3 o'clock i'd say. It kind of flubbed out after that but I'm guessing you are ok with that.
wouldn't know on the pedals, I'm guessing the Tourmaster will for sure, I'd love to give the Renegade a try.
