Hey, I might sell my dirt bike, and get a new amp.

I will have about $2000 to spend, I dont care if its used. I want a good Metalz sound, with a huge low end. I found a used Mesa Trem-O-Verb with a Rectifier 4x12 for $2000 used, I also wouldn't mind a decent clean sound and a good crunch for classic rock. Good deal?

What else should I look at

Would a Dual Rec. Tremoverb be good?

These are AMAZING amps. I would highly suggest getting one. I played that exact some one, with the clean, recto and ultra modules. All three sounded great, and the recto (I think it's officially called the Treadplate) module is especially good if you like the Mesa sound.

Pair that up with an Avatar G212H cab with V30s and you're good to go.

EDIT: They also have cheaper 2-module models, if you don't need all three slots.

usually i see tremoverbs for about $1200, mesa cabs for $500. so, price is not so great. but it's a great amp for what you want.

I'm in Canada, so stuffs a bit more.

And would a normal Dual rectifier be better?

Hows the Single?

Trem-O-Verb > Single/Dual/Triple Recto by a mile imo.

Really?

I heard that the Trem-O-Verbs sound like the older good rectifiers, and that the new ones sound like fuzz, and crap.

Yeah, the Trem/Rect-O-Verbs are really nice sounding and live up to the "solo" on their faceplate better than the normal Rectos do. Pretty nice cleans on them as well

Its still modeling, I want the Acutal amp, not something trying to be it.


No...Its not, its a tube amp with a power section in it, and you choose preamp modules BASED amps, its not modeling, its just like any other tube amp, but with the ability to choose which sounds you want it to make

I realize its a tube amp, its still trying to be other amps.

No, it's not, it's seperate preamp modules. You're misunderstanding what this amp is about.

You say you want a huge low end, so definitely stay away from the sing/dual/trip recs. The low end is loose as *****'s vagina on the recs. I'm not familiar with the Trem-O-Verb's, but they are supposed to be better. Honestly with 2 grand, I'd see if you can find like a Mark IV or like modernp said a Rivera K-Tre.

If I were you, I would go with a JCM800, and a 1960 cab and some pedals.

To play Metal, like Bodom and KSE though, not modern enough I would think.

Wouldn't that depend on the pedal though?

I want the amp to have good enough natural tube distortion that I would only have to boost it with an OD to tighten things up and not use a Distortion pedal. Plus JCM800s have NO cleans.

That being said, If I didn't play death metal and played like 80's thrash and stuff, I would get a JCM800.

excuse me? what do you mean JCM800s have no cleans?

good cleans on a JCM800 is almost impossible, which only has 1 channel, and really sounds terrible at normal levels, and I cant crank a 50 or 100W tube amp.

A JCM800 is not the amp for me. Ive played like 3 of em before. I'm not looking for Marshall Crunch, I'm looking for Modern Metal.

okay i understand you wanting a modern voiced amp and that the JCM800 is not for you and i respect that....but that an amp only has one channel doesnt mean it doesnt have cleans...thats what your guitar's volume knob is for

Yeah, I get that, but JCM800 cleans are pretty mediocre especially compared to Mesa Cleans.
#32
Depending on the Mesa really, wont get specific here...but my deffense for the JCM800 was just because you said it had NO cleans at all
