which AMP to go with BOSS pedal...

Hey dudes,
so i got the MT-2 Metal Zone BOSS pedal... its good with my Marshall MG30...
but i have sum extra cash. so i was wondering what other amps are out there, that'll compliment the pedal.. Its just that the marshall mg30 doesnt have the best clean channel, so i want something that'll equal up with the distortion potential... maybe sum nice tubes. ?

well its just that ive had the amp for a while, and looking for sum new tones. Preferably good clean ones, cause i got the pedal to take care of the distortion.
i was thinking about getting a messa boogie. but when i saw the prices my eyes fell outta their sockets . i really dont want to pay over 1 000 for an amp at this time.

Here on the farm we call that 'back asswards'.

I have a jug of gasoline here - can anybody recommend a good car?

LOL that's exactly what I was thinking.

1st get the right amp - don't even worry about any pedals 'till you've got the right amp!!! Then it's, well, the sky's the limit as far as pedals go...

good luck

Not that the Metal Zone doesn't kick a$$ (I used to have one and used it religiously for a while), but if you find the RIGHT amp, you'll probably never use it again!

I second everybody on the Mesa gear--the prices and features of Mesa amps vary quite a bit. How powerful of an amp do you need? Some of Mesa's 1x12 combos (Nomad 45, DC3) are pretty reasonably priced, and are nothing short of amazing!

If you're DEAD set on using that Metal Zone with an amp...

I own one, and used to run it through a Marshall JTM-30 combo. Sounded nice, but i thought it just killed through a small fender tube amp i played it through once. That'd be my vote.

That said, after i bought a Mesa, the thing started gathering dust. Tried backing the gain all the way off to use it as a light overdrive on the distortion channel, but i preferred it straight. The amp in question was a Rocket-44 which you can probably score for a decent price used- I know Matt's Music at the top of this page has one, because i just sold him mine.
