I recommend that because you didn't say what your budget is, so I assume you have a few grand at your disposal.
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.

If you like his tone, then go try out a Mesa. He's playing through a Mesa Dual Rectifier in that vid.

EDIT: Assuming you have the money.

If you're willing to go used, you might be able to score a Single Rectifier for around that much. You might also look into a few of Peavey's amplifiers (the XXX and the JSX (used) come to mind)

Ah, I forgot about Peavey. The XXX would be great for you as well, or maybe a used 5150/6505.

tell me you don't also have the same gay ass hair-don't and eye make up "he" has too.

Try a mesa rec. It's what he's playing through....

for your budget look at a B52 AT series. It'll get that tone and fit your budget.

Your crappy amp achieved a purposely crappy tone? I'll alert the presses.

Wow!!! It seems I pushed some buttons!.... but a few things to clear up for you...

1) Where in my post did you see me mention ANYTHING about EMO? Do you know something I don't? Is the player in that vid a self proclaimed EMO?

2) I am not, never have I been, nor ever will be a METAL HEAD. What is that anyway?

3) His hair is not bad ass. It is f'n stoopid. It is the modern equivalent of the mullet or the "hair band" look of the 80's...big poofy banged long hair permed out with spandex. Lame and Tacky. In 10 years from now he will feel like a fool and hide all pictures/vids of him sporting it, and his friends will make fun of him for it.

4) That whole "wanting to be different just like all the other different people I want to be like". Anyone who associates a "look" with an identity is just asking to get f'd with. He could be completely cool dude.. I never said otherwise... I just stated that is hair was stoopid. Its cool if he wants to sport that hair don't.... I'm not saying he can't, but don't get all whiney when someone points at it and says "stoopid".

Now.... back to the topic... any decisions on amp choices? Have you gone down to the music store (with your guitar and pedals) and tried some out?
