I've been searching long and hard for a good stoner rock - kyuss sort of sound, a Warm, Distorted sound. I still havent found a setup which gives me what i am looking for!

My current setup is my beloved black Yamaha sg210 and i'm running it through a fender blues junior and BOSS ME-50 Effects unit. The fender blues junior has a fantastic sound if your into your clean tones and thanks to my effects unit i have added a warm distorted tone but it isn't close enough to what i am after. My amp, obvioulsy not built for metal, is far to limiting and thanks to its ancient pre amp technology has barely any divercity at all!


I'm looking for a good metal amp which has a wide range of tones that can create a good warm sound that offers lots of distortion thats not to treblely...... Any suggestions?
oh and i'm poor

Well, I would say a Laney (I love the VH100R) but with stock tubes I found mine to be quite trebly, but nothing that extreme EQ settings or a tube swap could solve.
Gear:
Ibanez S470 (EMG 81/S/85)
Sigma DMC-15E
Laney VH100R
Laney 4x12 Cab
Ibanez Weeping Demon
M-Audio ProKeys 88
Mbox 3 Pro
KRK RP6 G2's

The perfect stoner rock amp is a cranked Orange AD30 with a Big Muff.

But that would cost lots.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

I think Fu Mnachu used a bass amp on one of their albums, and Kyuss used guitar amps with bass cabinets.

"In the early days of Kyuss, Homme used Peavey amps but by the time of "Blues for the Red Sun" he was back using Marshall amplifiers and Ampeg bass cabs. Towards the end of Kyuss he moved from Marshall amplifiers to Tube Works amps, still supplemented by Ampeg bass cabs."

And fuzz pedals might help like a Dunlop Fuzz Face. and try using your neck pickup.

hope that helps some

Interesting. It turns out that there are people on the forum who play an upright bass. I'll make a note of that.

*makes note*

*puts note on wall*

*stares at note for a minute*

*sits back down and resumes doing what I was doing*

I'd be more inclined to go with the Orange Thunderverb.
