I own a Legacy stack and I have never looked back!!
+1Of course everyone will recommend Peavey or Legacy - no one tried the Egnater. I'm biased, though. I've tried them all and I currently play an Egnater TOL 100. It won't do "nu-metal", but it does pretty much everything else. And for heavy rhythm, I just use Metal Zone into the clean channel. Egnater lead tones can not be improved upon, IMO.
I hear a lot about the Tourmaster, but every time I have played it I havent been very impressed. Maybe I'm an idiot but after 4 different sittings of about a half hour each I've concluded that it is a mediocre amp.+1
totally agree after playing through a tourmaster for about an hour the other day. it will be my next amp, even if i have to sell a few guitars to make it happen.
you know i felt the same way the first time i played through the head. i was at guitar center one day playing through a jsx and some very odd individual wheeled in the tourmaster head and cab. he was tweaking away at the controls and proceeded to crank it (playing through some hollowbody) and it sounded awful. of course he thought it sounded amazing, lol. after chatting with the salesguy for awhile, he turns to me and asks me to play through the amp (i'm guessing because he played like a novice). i was really in there to try out the jsx, so i didn't put a lot of effort into tweaking and completely readjusting his whacked out settings (gain, presence and treble at 10, lol), but i wasn't impressed. i had read a lot of good stuff though, so i vowed to come back and try it again one day.I hear a lot about the Tourmaster, but every time I have played it I havent been very impressed.
