Ignore Musician friend reviews. BS, the lot of em.
Solution?
Sell the fender, it is NOT a metal amp.
Then check out a Bugera, a Randal RG50TC, a used 5150 and B52 AT-112
That amp is shit

But seriously, it fails in every imaginable way

^That guy, I can't wait for the day he makes a "I need a new amp" thread.

On point, TS a budget could really help us narrow down some suggestions for you.

It ended with him saying that there were plenty of amps he wanted, including (Direct quote here) a 6505.

You can find a used 5150 for like 500
He said he had 600 bucks for a CAB in his sig

I actually forgot to mention that and feel like a douche now
I could've saved him
Actually, I highly doubt that. He was very stubborn

You can't save people who refuse to be saved. (man, that sounds religious as hell)

Then definitely check out the amps Felix (mcrfobtai) suggested. Also, see if you can try a mesa f or dc series, they can do metal quite well.

speaking of trifecta of six amps. i played a "guitar club" show today. (sorry not trying to like advertise or spam or w.e)

but anyway this was the ultimate bad amps group

fender dsp 65 watt
line 6 spider III 15 watt
2 (YES TWO) line six half stacks
line 6 spider III 75 watt
a marshall jvm (sounded like the line 6! i was so disappointed)
and my hot rod deluxe.

my hot rod fails me in the gain department but has nice cleans. i was surpised to hear it was the best amp there lol


but anyway to contribute to the thread:::

honestly if you really really really cant afford a great amp get a valveking and a bad monkey. but it'd be in your much better interest to look for used amps and amps stated above me

07 Fender American Deluxe Strat
07 Fender Custom Telecaster
09 Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster
09 Fulltone OCD V.4
10 Ibanez WH-10 V.2
09 Splawn SuperStock
10 Jet City JCA-20
97 Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

Yeh the SICK! bit sounds a bit stupid.

Sell the fender, take the rest of your money, go buy a peavey 5150, or a peavey XXX
Peavey 6505+
Fender Hot Rod Deville 410
Fender Telecaster Blacktop
Gretsch G5120

I don't get the hate for the hot rod.. I've had one for years, and have used it in a few hardcore bands, a metalcore band, and a pop punk band, and it's been nothing but gold. I just ordered the matching 112 cabinet for it today to get a little more of an even stage sound and to get some punch out of the bass a closed cabinet offers.

The key is to never, ever use the built in overdrive.

i love the amp, except for one thing, it breaks down all the time. mine broke down yesterday before my show and i could smell stuff burning.
