I play lots of brutal death metal(Nile, Cannibal Corpse, Necrophagist, Behemoth) as well as some melodeath (Nightrage, old In Flames, Amon Amarth), and I want an amp that can cover clear, tight modern distortion tones to extreme, low-end domination distortion.

Along with that, I also play a fair amount of Classic Rock (Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Rush, Black Sabbath), so I need some vintage tone as well.

I've narrowed down my choices to the Triple Recto, 6505, and Mark IV, but any other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in advance.

I say a Triple Rectifier should cover you just fine.


The 6505, if what I hear is right, is voiced really darkly so all of your classic rock stuff would sound a lot darker then it should.

and the Mark IV, would be great, but since you only play Classic Rock and Metal would have those 2 extra channels you'd probably never use.

What sort of guitar do you play, I think the 6505 would be good if you've got any single coils

I wouldn't go with a standard recto (single, dual, triple). They're really limited on what they can do. They excel in balls out heavy but lack everywhere else.

The Mark series is a good choice. A roadster/roadking would be as well. The F/Express are cheaper options, not quite as ballsy but still has boogie blood in it.

The 6505 would be a good choice for the metal but I find it similar to the rectos, excelling in sheer gain, not so much when you cut them down.

I would look into a Randall V2. Amazing amp, hybrid, lot of power, great tone. It would cover everything you need for about $1,100 new.

6505 ftw. Or even a 5150 if you can find it. The Triple Rectifier's just don't have as much saturatation as 6505 imo, an saturation is a plus in any situation, especially if you want to play some Classic Rock and Death Metal with it. The Mark IV would probably be your second best bet, but idk if it could handle death metal w/o some sort of boost.

IMO the rec and 6505 will fail at classic rock, it will do it, but not anywhere near as good as other amps including the mark IV.

But im not so sure if the mark will get to uber high gain...ask in the mesa thread

The triple recto is a total monster. Probably perfet for your styles

Mark IV would be the best for those genres you state, very versatile amp. You can get tight chugs to cystalline cleans.

5150, i use one myself. Its good for tight hi-gain riffing metal but for rock, its mediocre i guess. Then again EVH uses one and he doesnt play metal.

Rectos, well i dont like rectos. The buzzy distortion and loose bottom end just turns me off, but thats just me.
