No I just do not like the sound of these two amps. There ARE solid-state amps that sound really killer


How do you know that? I mean if the only ones you tried you didn't like the sound of, what makes you still so convinced that you are going to find a "killer sounding" one?

Well I assumed you had not tried many out otherwise why would you be asking for advice on this forum? Surely you can make your own mind up as to which ones you liked the sound of?

But I thought that maybe on this forum some people knew amps that I didn't know/think of?

Well there's no substitute for experience. We can suggest amps, but really you've got to try them out yourself and see if you like them.

The XXL is a good choice, but make sure you look for a Randall RH200. I had one for a while, and it sounded massive, especially considering that it was only 150$. It was awesome on the overdrive channel, not much of a clean sound, but maybe, that drive tone was awesome. It sounds a little different than the RG series, a little less fizzy and more chunky. I liked mine alot
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

if you can't find your XXL check this out. $250 brand new, sounds pretty damn good IMESHO

But it's a good idea, though.
Vetta HD's rarer and more limited anyway. The Vetta II is both slightly more common and actually a better head. There's also the HD147, which is a stripped-down Vetta made specifically for metal (no twin-amp mode, fewer 'classic' style amp models, more aggressive compressor and noise gate, smoother Wah and more headroom). You can find 'em both on eBay fairly cheaply.

You can get a firm ware update for the Vetta to make it the vetta II, my friend has done this.
Don't forget the Flextone II HD another really good head for cheap.

There's a bit ore tot he Vetta II than simply a firmware update. Although you can update the tones of the Vetta to match the Vetta II, the actual hardware of the Vetta II was a little better made.

Ah I see. I just know he had this done by L6. He bought the vetta used and then it broke a little while later. line 6 told him to ship it to them for repairs. They didn't charge him a dime to repair it.

Line 6 deff has good customer service. I neede a few replace ment parts for my Spider Valve, and they sent them for free to me. Not many companys will do that these days

You will never get that punch in the face kind of a sound with a solid state I'm afraid. Look out for a used Black Star HT stage 100 head or something like that. It's definatly worth it.
#56
Yup, another reason I think they're a worthwhile option even though some of their products sound terrible. I had to get my HD147 and FBV repaired and I told them I didn't like the newer buttons/expression pedal/LEDs they had begun using, so they dug out their last few older replacements for me. Other than postage, didn't charge me a penny. And they threw in a sturdier CAT-5/6 cable.

So long as you're not a die-hard valve fan, Line 6 can be fantastic.

maybe I might be able to get my hand on an vetta 2 COMBO. Of course thats not what i wanted at first, but I think I could live with it.Does anyone was any experience with the combo?

See if you can find a Line 6 Flextone II head. They are normally really cheap $150-$200 USD. They sound really nice also.

I could get the head in germany for about 1000 euros (about 1300 dollars) which it way to expensive for me. I could get an Flextone 3 (Combo) for REALLY cheap. Do you know what are the differences between the two amps?

The Flextone III was just an updated model with some tweeks to the models.

The Flextone III combos one is a 1x12 combo with an extension speaker out (so you can add a cab). Really under rated amps, and super versitile also.

The Flextone head you found, is it new? because that is a super high price tag.

Good shout for the Randall heads, specially Warhead, RG100ES and Century 200, beastly sounding machines.
I've got an RH150 G3 I'm getting rid of but you can afford something a lot better tbh.

i mean... i wouldn't be surprised if it sounds a lot better than a solid state amp head. But it's not (far as i'm aware, the 100 does have an extra preamp tube, i guess, but whether that's enough to make it all-tube, i dunno... the smaller ones have a LOT of SS stuff going on in them) all-tube, either.

Ever consider a Crate Powerblock? Even if you have to ship it 1/2 way around the world, they're so cheap to begin with and so small & light that it would be very affordable to do so. I can get a good sound out of mine when I'm playing quietly and, at 150 watts, it'll melt some faces if it has to. Google 'em a bit. They're great amps.

Note: I like a tube sound so I use a cheapie tube preamp in front of mine. However, they're pretty pedal friendly so you can adjust yours to taste.
#68
For what it was, I really loved my Randall RH200... Even after getting my Mesa Dual Rec and Peavey Ultra Plus, I still kept it around for a while because it had a pretty distinct, extremely high-gain sound.
I think I bought mine used off of eBay for 220 bucks 5 years ago.
Awesome!
#69
OMGOMGOMG you needs a Randall Warhead. Think early Decapitated. So epic!

Um... can't recommend the Peavey XXL. Their SS amps are just meh. Also, I wouldn't get the B-52 because it isn't necessarily as old-school. It's a new SS amp.

Who buys new SS amps?
