Check out like 2:32, is that achieved easily with a distortion pedal? That is amazing, the amp is like $150.. How does it compare to the VJ or TT?

No it's 150 USD. Or at least, that's what it should be/is most places.

It isn't a metal amp. All that metal there, is the pedal. If you want, get this amp for it's cleans, but get a pedal for the overdrive/distortion you want. It's what I'm doing, as it can't make my metal tone I want, but it has such a beautiful clean tone.

Sound's pretty damn nice. I wonder how loud it can really get.
mmmmmmhmmm

That's exactly what I've been trying to say.

I don't care how loud it gets, I'd rather have nice tube saturation really quiet. I have a Mesa Roadster and i'm looking for something cheap that I can crank the hell out of in my bedroom. My neighbors call the cops all the time when my Mesa is just a little loud.

It's all about the pedals. The blackheart or the Vj can give up some great metal tones. Just not real loud, although the neighbors may still phone up the cops. just not as often.

You nut, I said listen to around 2:32, the chords hes playing there. I'm pretty sure if you threw it into drop D or C and used those settings you could be achieving a metal tone pretty easy. You should get back on your chair now.

Your nuts, all your gonna get is Kansas in drop d thats it. Lower tunings don't magically make a tone metal....

And theres no back pedaling, you stated it was metal not ohh this would be metal if...

neither does the song you play. hes talking about metal tone, not a metal song. what you call metal may not be what he calls metal.

Exactly thats why i said he wont get a metal TONE out of that by just putting it in drop d now that is the perfect tone for Kansas.... And the amp is great for classic rock but the tone is far from metal.

Just tired of people hearing a little bit of gain and instantly thinking its metal just because its got some grit to it. Or they buy one of these amps and boost the hell out of it and get the muddiest nastiest tone out of it and think its metal because there gain is through the roof. Those amps are not voiced for metal i'm sorry there just not. You dont want power tube saturation when playing metal and power tube saturation is what these amps are designed to do...

hes using a 20 dollar distortion pedal to get that sound,

a blackheart + a sd twin tube mayhem pedal would probably be very nice for metal

Thats one of the things I love about these 5 watt amps, they take pedals so amazingly...
For a $20 pedal it sounded decent, spend a little more and its a nice set-up for in the bedroom... I would go for it.


My so glad my neighbors don't call the cops, even when I crank my ENGL... but I think they are drug dealers so that could be why.

Yeah i actually very much liked that distorted tone, while its not enough for much heavy metal imo because its not voiced right for it. Of course with a good distortion pedal you should be able to get pretty close.

I wasn't even talking about the Kansas song. The chording at 2:32.
