Hey everybody I'm looking for a metal amp (straight up 80s metal/ thrash). Which of the above would you recommend? Thanks.
#2
6505 out of those

If you go used you can get peavey ultra/triple x combos too that could do a nice job of that.

dont buy an ma they stink

also check 311s stickyed thread and give teh detailz

Peavey 6505- Loads of mids, impossible to truly scoop, very aggressive sounding, pathetic clean channel, great crunch mode on clean channel.
Think August Burns Red, Kreator, In Flames, Trivium.
Bugera 333XL- Kind of similar sounding to a Mesa Recto. Kind of in that its got a LOT of low end. Slightly less gain than a 6505/6260. More than enough for metal. Glassy cleans. Very versatile.
Marshall MA- Turd.

I agree with above post, I have the 333xl, and I get tons of nice low end thud, love it to bits.
The peavey is also very good, you can get a good clean channel, but i'm not a huge fan of it, the 333xl seems to be more versitile, and handles metal VERY well.

The Marshall is horrible. The 1x12 Peavey combo is mediocre IMO, although the 2x12 and head are great. The Bugera is a pretty legit amp for the price.

Ok thanks guys. I've heard some rumours that bugeras started hard soldering the circuits as opposed to using the crappy molex connectors. Any comments?

I haven't personally looked at one, but I've heard the same. Bugera's early reliability problems are supposedly fixed.

The combo is mediocre because of that damn speaker. After breaking it in it sounds ALOT better, and I bet it would sound pretty great with a speaker replacement (I haven't gotten around to replacing mine yet). Not trying to unsell you on the Bugera, they're great units, I'm just sad to hear all the hate on a good amp because of the mediocre speaker.

the 6505 is a mid machine and wouldn't work well for that thrashy "scooped" sound.


The 333xl would be my choice of those. I love my 6262 (shameless plug coming up) here's what it sounds like:

I agree with the 333XL being more versatile...but if you can try one, toss a clean boost in front of the CRUNCH channel on a 6262.....AWESOME "Kill 'em all" tone!

But bugeras have enough mid on the lead channel for a solo boost-y function, right?

Great. Vinson, when the amp arrives, I'm gonna have to try the clean boost trick, ya know, just to experiment.
