I currently have a VHT Deliverance. It isn't kicking it for my hardcore band. I'm either going to try boosting it, or trading for an ENGL Fireball. Any inputs?
My gear includes:
1998 Ibanez RG520QS with Dimarzio x2n and Fred.
Mesa 2x12 with v30s
Maxon od808(on the way)

Waiit till your od808 comes in and see if you like the vht boosted.
If not trade for the engl fb.
My gear-

And some pedals

Okay.. My genres are primarily hardcore. Aka Like Moths To Flame, Dream On Dreamer, etc. My budget would be around $1400, possibly more. I'm not restricted to trading for a Fireball. I will NOT be interested in a 6505. I did not like my time with a 6505.

You must be doing something wrong.... try boosting it.

Tbh a fireball would be more a side step than a step up.

That's what I think I'm going to do. The VHT just sounds bland to me, kind of flat. Great clarity though. If not What are some recommendations? I'd like to try ENGL's.

Well its a very dry amp, but should be perfect for what you want...

ENGL make some awesome things but radically different to your current amp lol

Yeah I'd just like to try one haha. I just hope the VHT is great boosted because this will be my 3rd amp hunt in a month.

The Nitrox sells at street price of about $1,900.00. The thing has an absolutely murderous tone and is loud enough to level a decent-sized city through a single 4x12 cabinet. If I were looking for a high-end guitar amp right now, the Nitrox would be at the top of the list. And the build quality of Diamond amps is spectacular.

Give them a call and see what dealers have a Nitrox in stock. Good luck with your amp search!

Thanks! I think I'm either going to shoot for this or a Triple Recto. I love the Triples as well.

I agree with Tom, sounds to me like the dryness of the VHT isn't up your fancy. ENGL is worth checking out, as well as Mesa dual recto (only if boosted). I highly recommend you try an ENGL savage or Invader 100. Especially the latter would def. be up your alley.

the only problem is I'm looking to buy used, and there are hardly any used ENGL amps in the USA.

Hate to say it but try around, there are too many viable options. Especially when going used!

Nice! I scored a JCM 800 50 watt head from a relative for free because he can no longer play. I'm going to boost it and use it for gigs. It sounds great to me. It's pretty much the tone I've been searching for.
