what's the best solid state amp you've ever heard
today it was my friend's peavey transtube series rage, 20 watts
it was amazing
played with it's lead channel with some drive and my neck pickup on my strat
unbelievably good for such a cheap amp
so best ss sound ever
ready...
GO

right Metallica is a given. Personally I like to pretend the bus exploded and killed them all in '86.

Completely solid state? If so, I fancy some of those custom amps. The Marshall Lead 12 and the other Marshall MOSFET amps from the eighties are pretty cool. The Randall RG100ES makes my life complete. Can't forget about the Roland Jazz Chorus.

Randall, high end Line 6, Roland Cube.. Probably more but those are off the top of my head.

My friend has a Roland Jazz Chorus which is awesome and if I'm not mistaken (it might be hybrid) the Line 6 Vetta II's sound really good for heavy gain stuff.

Best I've played was a Line 6 Vetta, but I'd still take a tube any day

I personally wouldn't count the Line 6 and other modelers. The reason being is that they aren't 'true' solid state amps. They use modeling processors as apposed to transistors to produce the sounds.

No offense or anything, but the reason that amp sounded so good is because you have an MG half stack...

The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

Idk what others think but I just got my first real amp and its the Crate GLX212 and I love it.


I think you should turn your arse around and return it!

Nah, if you like it, more power to you brother.

I also forgot to mention the Peavey Transtube amps.


The XXL is pretty cool.

The Ziggy amp sounds pretty sweet too.

The rockman soloist currently residing on my desk is probably the greatest ss amp ever created, infact the whole rockman line up until it was sold to dunlop was kick ass.

Why did you have to sell it to dunlop, scholz, why?

I'd say the Peavey Transtube will become a legend. Sounds good, built like a tank...an ideal backup amp. The Toyota Hilux of the amplification world.


That's a Tacoma to you youngins ITT.

But yeah, Transtube amps are pretty rad sounding. I have an old Studio 112 and it sounds pretty killer and it's like a brick.

Kustom 12 Gauge

Cheap amp but sounded terrific

The fact that it's just a straight up amp with no DSP effects or anything in the circut helps too, just straight amp thats it. I've been hearing alot of people say those new Raven amps are pretty nice too.

My teacher's got a Tech 21 Trademark that sounds quite sexy, and very tube- ish, unlike all some of the Randalls that have been mentioned.

The solid state Vox amps that the Beatles used must have been pretty sh!t hot.

Out of all the SS amps I've played, I liked the red knob Fender Pro 185 most.
