SO the most highest gain amps i heard was the randalls? is this true like....people say the randall g3 series is pretty pimptastic....

ENGL Powerball.

It will rip your nuts off. When it comes to gain it crushes every amp I've played and some I havent. It made any randall I've played look like a bitch.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

lol I dont ever have my stock 5150 put past 6 on the gain


p-p-p-puuuuuu.................sh it man. push it! gotta take it to the X-TREME.



[edit] genocide: my mod didnt really make it have more gain, but made it sound 'warmer' and more dynamic because of the bias mod.
#11
Well if you could imagine.. Coming home with a 5150 full stack, plugging the cabs in, throwing my guitar in the high gain input, cranking the amp about half way and busting out some Arch Enemy..

Oh yeah, I needed earplugs. But I was too busy rocking out to go get some.. so I just faced away from the amp.

I dont need more gain, but a bit of extra clarity, some warmth, and of course removing the background noise is great.

Where'd you get yours modded?
#12
I remember my friend was all like "yea with my setup, i can hit the ultimate gain" I'm like "ok cool"...He brought in a Squier, a TS, DS-1, and a MetalZone. Cranked all those pedals and ran it through a Fender Frontman. It sounded like UBBER shiz.

Squier + DS-1 + MT-2 + Frontman = the ultimate ICEPICK IN YOUR EAR maybe.

id have to say the ogner uberschall, acclaimed as the "darkest distortion" of any amp. and also the 5150 is sick and i dont know how it compares to the 6505.but yeah they rip.
#16
wats the thing about "dark vs bright" distortion? wats two songs, one with eg of dark, one with bright.

thanks

Peavey 6505 Plus

I believe they have 6 gain stages as well, and Mesa's have 5, and Marshalls have 3 or 4...I could be wrong though
#20
Quote by adam02
Marshall MG's have 16 Gain Stages.


so funny i forgot to laugh.


wow, i havnt said that for years.

[edit] GENOCIDE: i got my 6505 modded (bias mod, makes it warmer and more dynamic sounding. more clarity and overall punch) by some random guy that came into my work one day. For free.

Do you know what he did?

modded 5150/6505 or a Genz Benz El Diablo....
I traded in my Real Books for Robbins and Cotran Pathology Textbooks

you know on Eurotubes how he gives you the correct tubes to put in it, and how to adjust the bias by throwing in a bias pot. he did all that for me. nothing i dont think i couldnt have done myself. but whatever the case it still sounds a lot warmer and more punchy then all the other stock 5150/6505s ive played. ill try to snag pics from the kid *the other guitar player in my band* i sold it to.

"JJ KT88's in the outside sockets and the JJ 6L6GC's in the inside sockets" that and a bias pot.

Bogner Uberschall....... that's just demos.....

God, I envy you all for having access to such godlike amps........
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.

bluespunkmetal: the power ball may look plain but it'll rip your balls off from a 100 yards.
