Highest gain amp under 1000$
 
wut is the highest gain amp under 1000$
i also want a good cob sound ,wut wud be good 4 that?

xdislexicx 2004-08-07 00:44

absolute highest gain for a grand? or best sounding high gain amp for a grand?
two totally different things...
also, are you looking for new or used?
new:
peavey 5150's,5150 II's, and triple x's are all bout a grand...
crate bv120h....
used:
everything above+
mesa recto's
marshall jcm 2000's
ect....

cob uses lee jackson gp1000 tube preamps, but they arent very versatile. 5150's can get a sound kinda like that but you have to mod them to hell with stuff to get good clean sounds out of them (well to me, someone who knows about electronics can probably do it in 5 minutes)

skcoffan 2004-08-07 10:04

well i dont need clean ,all i want is a hot good distorted tone

the matching Engl with v30's instead of v60's or a marshall 1960' cab. (prolly used then)

xdislexicx 2004-08-07 15:13

used crate bv120h head($300-$400) + used marshall 1960a 4x12 cab ($300-$400)
that would be great for black metal..... lots of gain, tons of volume, sounds pretty dark, and it has reverb, which is kinda a must for necro shit....
and it's all under a grand.

good luck getting $800 out of it..... that's all i have to say about that.....

Def 2004-08-07 15:16

^rofl, yeah...

I dunno about the cabs there, but they're more expensive over here I think.. I was lucky getting mine for a good price but they're more about 5-600 here :(

there isn't a lot of Crate around though, but if you want to keep it cheaper I guess its a good option (I don't think they sound better then Engls, but if you're tr00 black metal that wouldnt mind all too much)

you could buy one new for $800....

you'd be lucky to get rid of it for $500-$600 shipped. because shipping a halfstack is expensive.
