Why does it matter what has the most gain? It should be the sound of the amp that's important.

Fender Strat/Tokai LS80>few pedals>Orange Rocker 30

Yea.... but they've all got completely different sounds and characters, so don't just buy an amp if it's got the most gain, they've all got more than you'll probably ever use anyway.

im aware of the different sounds, and i was just asking a simple question, and i wouldn't just by an amp for the gain anyway, and how would you know i wouldnt use all the gain?

Fender Hot Rod amps have the most gain because their knobs go to 12

Phil Tufnel, haha.

My amp goes to 12, I win, apparently...

to bad ENGL's are never on ebay :/


that's a good thing, at least for the ones that already have one.
it means that they don't want to sell em cause they're good...
i guess, it could also mean that they broke before they could

Well, unless you're still one of the kids that thinks "oh well, let me just turn my bass, treble and gain all the way up, turn my mids all the way down, now we've got a good sound!", then you'll never need all of that gain... my friend has a DSL401, and it amuses me, because he likes to do that... but then again he claims to know what hes doing... go figure
#17
is it even possible to measure gain?

well the 900's gain goes to 20, thats like 11 more!

High gain is 5150
engl savage and powerball
bogner ubershiit
the most would be the diezel vh4 me thinks, brutal
#19
You know even if a crap amp says it's gain goes to 20 or something, it might actually be not as much gain as let's say, a better amp with gain marked to 10...

Soundwise.

How is gain even measured? (no idea, I just use it, eat me)

Some people need that sound to cover up their mistakes.
Actually knowing how to play has gone out of style.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Sir, mines a Mk3 JCM900

Now go find your Roland Cube and take a dump on it and dont ever preach to me again about Marshalls. RHCP and Gabel should aslo kick your ass.

Gain is actually the increase in signal strength, that can and does lead to distortion, that why it can go higher than ten.

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?

^indeed........... but no amp can escape the attack of the "mid scoop-a-divers" !!!
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

Oh and me too! Dont forget I have a JCM900!

^For you then, on behalf of you and us all! (Marshall men)

To Invictious: RHCP and Gabel AND kurdtkobaign AND Gutch should also kick your ass.
#30
why is everyone so assuming on ug? i was just wondering out of those amps which one had the most gain, and people automatically think im some retard. i just wanted to know what the gains were like on these amps. and thank you for the two people that actually answered my question everyone else should go sit on a cactus
#31
How can one tell? The amps you names are all high gain amps....depending on what you play through them, and the remainder of your setup, you will get different gain levels, and different tones.

Your question isn't very good...that's why you're being flamed.

Sry dude, I didnt say anything about you! lol I was just saying that Davedoom didnt include me in the list of Marshall owning users! (does that make sense? idk its late lol) Anyways, I agree with you. Just cuz the amp says the gain goes to 20...doesnt mean its more than another amp that only goes to 10.
#37
Im only having a laugh mate!

Jeeeeeeeeeez.

Anyway, Marshalls rule and arnt high gain.

Best HIGH GAIN AMPS are the Diezel VH4 and the VHT Del. 120
#38
You really shouldn't be looking for an amp for the highest gain. Try them out and see which one fits you best. I like the 5150 out of all of them, though.

Depends on your style..........

Try the VHT Deliverance too..... I heard it was a JCM 800 on 1...2...3..45...69....90 pills of steroids !!!
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
