if money money wasn't a factor, and you were looking for the ultimate amp.... what is the baddest amp out?

peavey 6505, mesa triple rec, peavey xxx, peavey 5150, and marshall jcm 800 need not apply.

^oh jesus christ . just because it has the same brand name and a remotely same name doesnt make it at all the same. its like saying a cat is like a human because its a mammal.

Diezel herbert. Just stop there, you can get everything out of that flipping amp.

i thought the uberschall was the best for drop tuning. i have a friend of mine that's signed to major record label... he said the uberschall is bad ass but if you make any mistakes you will every little note through that amp. he likes the 6505 and the triple rec pretty good.

Actually my playing sounds a ton better on the Uberschall. It was pretty forgiving from my personal experiances with it. But he is right you can hear every little note and nuance, but for me that makes me play better because I can hear what im actually playing. But I can see how it might be a pain for some.

no idea, there are a load of really nice ones. if money were no object i'd probably buy about 10 to be honest.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I just posted this in another thread but this seems like a good thread to post it again.
What about Kerry King's signature Marshall JCM 800 amp? That amp SMOKES! It's totally flying under the radar and I have no idea why. It's very versitile and can do metal all night long. I'm honestly surpirsed more people don't talk about it. In that same light, what about a Marshall JVM?? That is the BEST four channel amp out there right now. It's VERY versitile also. The Marshall love has really seemed to have died off...
#19
i liked the jvm i tried, but i've tried 4 channel amps i much prefer- engls, diezels, etc. etc.

Once you get into the range of Diezel, Bogner etc., it's more about preference than how awesome the amp is. Personally, I'd go for a Soldano SLO100.

Agreed. Gotta be careful in recommending the SLO for high gain metal purposes though. To me, the SLO was a KILLER (if not the best) LEAD amp. Lesser so for rythems. When I hear the SLO I think 80's metal hair band tone. Not so much for like Kreator sounding purposes. A great amp though, very articulate.

This thread needs moar old school.

I say the Peavey 5150.

That's always my answer for a great metal amp too, best of all it's affordable. You can even get a Fender Deluxe or Twin for cleans and still keep everything around 2K.

I thought the KK JCM 800 was pretty cool, but the price they ask is too much imo.

And I've never really liked the JVM when I've played it (which is many, many times). It does cleans and mid gain alright, but I thought its high gain sound sounded like crap.

i haven't tried the slo, but i've tried the avenger- i think cornford have it beat regarding lead tone, but then the flipside is that the avenger would do metal rhythms a bit better... as i said, preference and it depends what you want...

agreed, i liked its mid-gain tones more than the high gain ones. bit like a triamp in that respect...

bogner uberschall fvckn rules!!!! i jammed one today through a cheap b 52 cab and it still cranked like hell. i also tried the new engl limited edtion and a diamond spit fire. bogner totally owns!!!!
#37
Krank, Laney, or Framus. . . imho, 6560+ aren't half bad either, they actually sound pretty good with some nice vintage speakers, like a Crate Red Voodoo cab.

come on, you guys have seen the rigs on HC, my setup is actually pretty tiny compared to most guys on that forum.

For what I've owned and played, the Herbert is the best metal amp for me so far. All preference though when you're talking about amps like the ones mentioned in this thread. I like the Uberschall a lot too, but for the sounds I was dialing from it, the Herbert does it better IMO. I'm pretty enamored with the XTC right now too. Still haven't tried the ENGL SE yet though.
