I know, another annoying 'what amp should I buy' thread, but here it goes. I need a metallish amp. I play classical and metal stuff (disturbed, dragonforce, A7X). I need an amp that can be heard over drums. I have an ok selection of pedals (distortion, eq, overdrive). Reccomendations? Thanks...

Oh yeah, perferably under 1 grand.

I played it, it sounded like crap to me.

Does the single rect sound like the triple rect?

Peavey XXX, 5150/6505?

Mesa F-30/40/50 whatever, I can't remember the model numbers exactly.

Why does everybody want amps for metal?

Because they play metal?

If you want to sound like a triple recto without buying a triple recto go with a B-52 At-100 stack. A lot of people call is the "Poor Man's Mesa".

I had two B52 112 50 Watt combos. I don't think (and many others agree) that it sounds anything like a Mesa. I did however sound good for modern metal. See reliability issues.

So the B52's are good for metal? I've heard some reviews that said they couldn't do metal at all.
