Try a Marshall MG, I hear the overdrive is pretty crushing... That might get some good metal tones...

Haha...

I'd go for either a Peavey Vypyr or a Randall

haha sorry i was tired when i posted and went in the wrong forum. anyways would the upgrade from a fender g-dec junior to any of these be worthwhile? I was also looking into a roland cube 40xl
#10
which one sounds the best kinda broad question but of all the ones mentioned the best tone? also a cab would would be a lil loud for practice

If you look a bit you might be able to find a krankenstien jr and cab for that price used.


Srsly?

I think that's a little optimistic, but above and beyond that - Kranks have a love-hate tone, even if he does find one... I'm not quite sure how much he'd like the tone.

That would depend on who you talk to, to me:

Peavey: Best modeling amp for high gain
Roland: Jack of all trades, master of none
Vox: Best modeling amp for clean, mid gain and light crunch
Spider: Best piece of firewood

IIRC, the Cube only has time based effects (delay, chorus etc), but not preamp stompbox models (meaning you don't have ODs or dirt before the preamp). While the Vypyr has preamp dirt box models.

I'd buy the Vypyr over the Cube any day, but its really a matter of taste.

I've seen them go that low though that's why I mentioned it, because if he wanted to get the peavey vyper the best model is the krank. So he would be best off with the real deal. There is currently a rev jr with cab for 400 on the guitar center site. Id look at that or a blackstar ht 5. If you got 400 and a practice amp anything bigger than 30 watts is just silly. I guess if you really want modeling look at the vyper tube but its size is kinda overkill for home practice. Id see about hawking the gdec on cl for 65 and see if anyone bites at for more money towards something better.

Wow... I knew the Krank Krankenstein wasn't great.. but that low is a new low.

Personally I prefer the sound of the Rev+... and also I thought that the Krank model on teh Vypyr was based on the Rev+?

I have to say that the sound of the Krankenstein is quite different from that of the Rev+.

The best tone is in your ears. Everyone hears differently. Don't try looking for tone in someone else's ears.

I'd try to give a look to the smaller amps from Randall if you play metal. It won't cost you a ton of money and it sounds pretty decent to me (I like the Randall tone :P).
