man....I keep seeing Dual recto's on ebay for fairly reasonable prices. I want a high gain amp I can use to play metal. really heavy riff oriented stuff. the Uberschall seems like the best thing for me, but the Boogie is a lot cheaper used.

which way should I go? I have 2G at my disposal right now. if I get a boogie around 1300, I would still have plenty left to get a new cab (probably a Vader). or I could save a little more and get a new Uberschall. I could then save some more and get a cab in time. I'm not in a band, so it's not like I need the amp now.

give me guidance!

PLEASE tell me you're joking.

Uberschall- it's simply epic- the Dual Recto has a flabby low end which is no good for high-gain stuff.
I don't know names of loads of high-gain heads off the top of my head, but you have quite a bit of cash, so check out:
Diezel, VHT, Bogner (other ones ), Splawn, ENGL, Solando...

All I can think of atm.

agreed, the Uber has the 'epic' feel to it. Diezel's are out of my range. VHT sound great, but I don't think they're worth the money, or more than, an Uber. and the Uber is Bogners best high gain amp. the Shiva and Xstacy aren't built for the same type of gain. ENGL's don't have enough balls, IMO.

thanks for the reply.

Look into a Splawn Nitro. the guys at HCAF are calling it a Super Uberschall. Tighter, more articulate, no flubby low end. Its basically a Uber with out some of the flaws

Well between those two amps, it's really no contest imo, the Uberschall will walk all over the Recto.

Have you tried checking out a Framus Cobra?

TS, have you tried the Mark IV too? Maybe it's not your sound, but it's worth a try.

Rock Solid Amps have a lot of High End High Gain amps.

Framus Cobra is a good choice. I don't know the price. (You have to call to get a price) But they sound very good.
Gear:
Schecter C-1 BlackJack
Peavey 5150 II
Ibanez 25W "Tone Blaster"
Fender Starcaster (Not the vintage kind, the Wal-Mart Value kit kind"

If Dimebag22 was a pie, I would cover him with whipped cream and eat his insides...

Cobra is $2200 or $2300 I believe, but you can find them used pretty cheap.

Simply, it would be the Uberschall.

If you can get a Recto cheap, they're good amps for "that" sound....but that's about it. And EQ in the loop and overdrive out front can do wonders with them.

I'd say the Splawn Nitro is definitely worth a look.

And If you want a versatile amp that can go from pristine clean to metal, and sound good with all of it, the Mesa Mark IV is your ticket. IMO, best amp on the market.
