Re: Most Metal Amp

i belive that the 5150 has the most gain of any amp around, it may not be voiced to you liking though. I played a boogie road king and loved it very gainy . The peavey xxx has some good gain too. Krank is up there as well. I am personally looking at a genz benz el diablo, krank revolution, or a mesa for myself to get me some good gain

The Roland Jazz chorus a king among clean amps, but its well known for being awefull, terribley bad at distortion and overdrive sounds.

I like the Peavey 5150 myself.

Re: Most Metal Amp

The Krank Revolution Seires One, Mesa Boogie Triple Rectum-frier, and the Bogner Uberschall are at the top three of my list as the Most Metal Amps.

Thumbs up Re: Most Metal Amp

5150 hands down if you like a raw Thrash tone. Sworn Enemey, Chimaria, Atrayu, Opeth, Unearth, Arch Enemey, God Forbid all do or have used 5150 or 5150 II. I use a 5150 II in out metal band.
