Re: Found my next new amp yesterday
That "something else" will be at least twice the price, if you find it at all. Frankly, I think Egnaters hold their own against any other amp out there. Before I bought my first Egnater I've gone through quite a few amps. I bought it, played through it for about half a year. Then I had my "chugga chugga" period, and sold the Egnater, because that's not something it's good at. Guess what, four years and six amps later, I bought another one and this time I'm not selling. For chug, metal zone into channel 1 works wonders when dialed in right. For everything else, there's four channels worth of variety. I can dial in "guitar god" type tone effortlessly, plugged straight in on channels 3 or 4. Overdriven chords sound good, and harshness is easy to tame without killing the highs. And I can dial it down to arbitrarily low volumes, and it still sounds good. Not awesome (you need a bit of volume for truly awesome), but better than any other amp I had, and I had a lot of amps.
