i am looking for something high gain, a little more of the low mid concentrated tone, maybe German voiced? (not confident what exactly German voiced is).

i dont want to spend over $1500.

has to be used.

have no problem buying untested as long as it is a good deal, worst scenario i sell it and (usually) make a few $$$ off of it.

doesn't have to be a head, i am kind of thinking about a rack setup, but can't be a combo.

used for metal, from a little bit of doom/stoner however more so melodic death (Children of Bodom, etc).

i don't care if it has good cleans decent cleans or no cleans at all, i do not care.

i also really don't want this amp to be stepping on my other amps. i am looking for tones i dont have at the moment.

i am in tampa FL could go to orlando, FL Ocala, FL or Sarasota, FL. it was for something great at the right price.

i like the VHT deliverance some bit but i haven't played one and haven't found any really well recorded videos of it on youtube or any of the tone websites ( although i haven't looked at this amp for a few months.

a dual rec could be nice too. only two channel, i am sure i will end up with one eventually.

what do you all think about the Engl E350? it is definitely catching my ear. but would one of the regular Engl's in head form be better.

Soldano Avanger? would like to try one.

ideas welcome.

Perhaps you might like a Hughes and Kettner Switchblade? It's a pretty good metal amp for the money.

Also, the Soldano Avenger is a nice choice if you want that SLO-100 style voicing without actually getting a SLO-100. Soldanos are amazing amps that can cut through anything.

i don't totally understand the switchblade. 2x 12AX7's? one for PI the other for? there has to be some solid state in there, and don't care for effects in amps, and i really don't want something that involved with the midi. it doesn't sound bad by any means, but i would prefer to hear it on something without so much processing, while still having a decent demo that is not using a damn camera. i will keep it in mind.

i like the avenger, just not sure if i like something better.

i am really feeling the VHT/Fryette thing.

IIRC wasn't the Deliverance the gain side of a different VHT?

love to find a herbert.

$1300 for the sig:X

$900 for the deliverance.

could go for either one really. i am sure i could find either one of these cheaper, those were just the average price on GC's online used ones.

i thinking that i like the deliverance better because of the 'flavor' of the gain. the six sounds/looks nice, but i really don't need the other channels. i run a twin amp setup all the time in my studio, i can just pull the '68 bassman for cleans, or this odd old ampeg combo i have that has stunning cleans.

found a dragon for $1400 (again at GC used). that is cheaper than i thought i would see a framus go.

i will give baron a look.

engl's seemed a little more pricey than the others, and tone wise, i like the other amps better.

really digging the cobra/dragon. going to check out Baron.
