It's been a while, and I thought I was getting out of the habit, but here I go, with another amp-topic:
I REALLY don't wanna throw myself into something that I can't get out of. Like, for example, buying an amp that doesn't really squeeze every last penny - that I paid for it - out in means of soundquality.
So, what I'm starting to look for is basically a HEAD that goes down brutal on the low-end, and these are the canidates so far:
Pros: Tight distorsion that fits well into staccato palm-mute chugga-chugga-crunch riffage! Seemingly nice clean channel.
Cons: THE PRICE! Cheapest specimen over here in the north of Europe clocks in at around 1500€.
Peavey Triple XXX
Pros: Has a price-advantage over the Powerball.
Cons: Haven't heard it "in action", so to say, in the middle of a sonic assault, so I don't know its distinction.
I'd like you to, if you have any experience with this gear, comment these guitar-heads with any general pros and cons. What I'd be looking for in the head I'd be buying would be a head that can squeeze out a good clean tone, and a distorsion that handles the almighty "staccato palm-mute chugga-chugga-crunch"-riffing!
(Think Meshuggah for this one)
If ANYONE has any good Peavey Triple XXX clips (Yes, I've already heard the clips on their site.) with a more elaborate investigation on the clean-channel, please submit. That goes also for more heavily distorted parts.
As always, thanks in advance.
