ok i think i'm going to get a mesa f-30 but i was wondering if you can get good metal tones from it. i read in many reviews in harmony central that "it is not a metal amp.' the metal sounds i would like to get from it are sounds like metalica, pantera, megadeath and avenged sevenfold. Do you think i could get those kinds of sounds and tones from this amp without any pedals or do you think i would have to get a pedal? and what kind of pedal should i get to get those sounds? i have heard of the TS9's and the maxon tubescreamer but arn't those to boost up your solos? Am i looking for something like a boss SD1, or OD?

by the way yes i have played the amp but it was a couple of weeks ago. The next time i go down to the guitar store i might buy it and was wondering if i need pedals to get the "metal" sound so i wouldn't have to fool around in the store for too much.

thx

I think you'd be able to get those, perhaps bar the pantera tone- you may need an eq for that, as pantera is a pretty bright tone, while mesas are quite dark. Can you try it? and remember to use the contour channel!

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.
