What's the best amp to get a sound like Dimebag, Slash, Jerry Cantrell, and SRV? Pedals would be included in getting the sound, of course. I've heard the Laney VH100R is pretty versatile. But I wanna hear some other suggestions.

Soldano SLO100 is just in your budget. I'ts the head that I wish I could get. It is (supposedly) hand built by the same tech from start to finish and has a lifetime warranty. It is a pretty heavy amp that can play anything. And if you are wondering if it would be light enough for playing SRV stuff, Soldano was making an amp for SRV but he died before he got to implement it.

The JCM800 has always been an amp I have liked. And I am going to be gigging soon.

For 4000, get a freakin' Mesa Boogie.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

i would advise with that budget getting more than one amp. any of the above would be decent possilities. why not go with a bassman for the SRV stuff and a high gain head for all of the rest?

unless you really can't be bothered carting around several amps, if you need a wide range of tones and have the budget for it, several amps will generally do a wide range of tones better than one amp.

if you do want one amp, there are some amps that'll work too, don't worry- you have a pretty big budget. Things like engl SE, bogner ecstacy, brunetti xlr-evo, koch multitone, diezel vh4, fryette (various models), mesa roadking, etc.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

A) get two amps to A/B through a single cab

B) buy an amp that has 3 completely isolated channels, with their own volumes, gains, and seperate EQs. The SLO would be absolutely sick, but if you're looking for versatility on the fly, it may not be the amp for you.





you may want something with more control like the Mesa or a similar amp.


That's assuming your talking USD and not Ugandan Dollars
#16
if i had $4k i'd probs get a Diezel Herbert, or a new Dual Recto and a Mk5. The second option is probably more versatile tho. do you need to get a cab as well??

*Bane voice* ahhh yes. The br00tz, I was born with it. Molded by it. I didnt know of the light until I was already a man.

I didn't say it can't do everything.


but imo, $4000 later I wouldn't leave the versatility of the amp up to my guitars volume knob, you dig?

It just depends what he wants though. It would just suck for him if he bought a $4000 amp and realized "shit how do I use this live? I don't like the shared EQ..." because he never even thought about it.

If you don't want to spend the full $4k, check out Egnater Tourmaster and Armageddon (which hasn't been released yet though).






In a live situation control is pretty important. More important than the difference in tone between a $2000 amp and a $4000 amp.

You could always get one of those new randall amps that you can put modules in. Go get one that doesnt have any moduals in it. THen get a cleanish fender sound lyk a fender bassman or whatever model they have thats like that (idk i dont own a randall, but i know alot about em). So basically get the 3 modular amp thing. Get a Fender Bassman '59 style modual (or whatever they make), for dime get a BOss MT-2 metal zone and you got that, then for the rest just look for it. The modules are like 250 USD each I think... the amp alone is like... idk 1k maybe 2k.
