hey. im looking to buy a new top end amp head. the tone im looking for is "linkin park - a 06", "celldweller" "blue stahli" "styles of beyond" ill post some links of the exact tone im looking for. i heard some people say the top end line 6 heads maybe "line 6 spider valve hd" looking forward to peoples responses
#2
oh also another perfect example would be "birthday massacre - looking glass". but yeah this and linkin park a 06 is exact what i want
#3
i have never tried a spider valve but.... after my experience with my spider i would just say stay away form spiders........ um... try some bugera amps? for the price they are very nice and they have all kinds of styles.
#4
oh course i may just be opinionated about the spider cause of my terrible experience with it but the top of the line stuff might be good.. idk.. but i dont plan on buying any more line 6 stuff...
#5
thanks for that ill have a research at bugera ones. its a shame i cant fid any top end line 6 heads to try out at shops

i got a pod x3 live bu i cant rly say anything sincr its meant for effects and not guitar amp tone

try a mesa boogie and feed a EQ pedal through it, i think that should really do that tone well. Line 6 amps are good (only referring towards the top end) and offer alot of variety and pretty good tone, its great bang for the buck since it has great varity but if you're going to spend that much why not save a bit more and get a great tube head like mesa.

good luck in either case

no doubt that is a mesa dual rec. very bass heavy power chords. birthday massacre is an amazing band btw.

and linkin park also used the dual rec on there first albums, same with celldweller, another amazing band.

Celldwellers gear

now i must tell you that before i read this just now, i knew by ear it was a dual rec, only one amp can go that low in the power chords and just sound amazingly thick.

just did the search now in google and behold i was right.

marshalls have a special upper mid voicing. getting near that will be tricky and the end result i think will be more rock sounding than metal. even though people say the JVM is great for metal, it still retains its rock roots and is no where near as grindable as a dual rec or 6505.
