Re: Help!! I'm Amp stupid
for 2k you could land a Triaxis and either 50/50 or 2:90 power amp and still have some coin left over for a cab of some sort. this is used of course.
But a triaxis will get you the majority of the Petrucci tones.
You get all the goodness of mesa tone and all the versatility of a midi preamp, who could ask for more?
I have some settings I can share too, as do a few others.
NOW, if you wanna go a tad on the less expensive side, I would nab a modded ADA MP1 with either the 3 tube mod or the Voodoo mod, a good power amp ( VHT, MESA, something with Ballz) and a hot cab even a Bag End or Mesa.
Used will get you more bang for the buck.
