personally, i've read them myself.... some people are trying to preach about it's a digital amp with tubes to warm the signal or something..... a bunch of bullshit really...
imo the blue voodoo is awesome. but try it yourself, don't let reviews make decisions for you.
but yeh, check the 5150 out too... totally different sound, but good.

Dont trust Harmony-Central.... ive seen people say that the Blue Voodoo's distortion comes from a chip and not the tubes and other bullshit.

*nod*

some reviews on harmony central are shit, others aren't, but most of the time you can judge by yourself in the way the review is written...

everytime I put one up I just state clear facts and a bit of opinion, no bullshit marks either. most people are only on harmony central to hype up their own gear.

yeh, alot of the time.... it's a person that is trying to sell a peice of gear so they give it hella good reviews.... even though they really think it sucks.
or, they just bought it five minutes ago and either love it or hate it before they can make good judgement....ect...
the blue voodoo is not only not run by a "chip"... but that would be stupid for crate to make an amp with tubes, because it's more expensive to make a tube amp, so why make the tube amp and then run it with a "chip"? they might as well just make the tube amp with no "chip" and save money and have more people enjoy the tone....
some people on h-c have some pretty stupid ideas.

If you dont go for the 5150, or a ENGL your stupid, those amps should be up there with the mesa's. The 5150 and most ENGL amps are really good, and all the LANEY amps are great as well, i own a 5150 myself and i got mine for 300, so you could fit in a cab for like another 300$ and still have quite a lot of cash left. And im not sure COB used 5150's for something wild because he said hes had the crazy fucking rack set up for a long long time.

Watch some live performances.

Oh and shutup please, thank you.

5150's and ENGL's arent the only fucking amps that exist. Their's plenty of great amps.

*cough*more*cough*ingnorance*cough*
i guess i'm stupid because i don't play a 5150 or engl.......
oh well, cuz my jmp-1 wipes it's ass with my guitarist's 5150..... hands down.

alot of engl stuff rock's mesa's socks imo.
laney aint bad either....
but i could list tons of amps just as good if not better than 5150's,engl's,and laneys......

Haha, chill out mang, i was just saying that if he bought the 5150 he would have gotten the best deal, because the thread is named Highest Gain AMP under 1000$, so i figured that the 5150 has the most gain under 1000, and even under 800, or 600, so i was just helping.... yeah Laneys, ENGLS, and your JMP probably does own my ass with it, but how much did you pay for it?

because deizel's are like over $3,000 used.... we are mere mortals.... personally there are other amps for less that i would take over a deizel...

vht is rad, i mainly like their poweramps. and engl rocks pretty hard too....

even then though.... there are alot of amps you could get for under $1,000..... hell, you could grab a used mesa rectum-fryer in that price range. or a crate blue voodoo.... or jcm 2000's....or various rack gear.... ect....

jmp-1 preamp.... not JMP head.... two totally different things.
jmp-1's go for about a grand new... i payed less than half of that for mine used.
that's just the preamp though.... not to mention the poweramp,sonic maximizer, compressor/graphic eq/notch filter, hush super C, power condish,rack case.... ect.
but it totally owns......

yeah, diezels are too expensive... but i hear they extremely stiff and a retubed mark IV could own one in a second. I personally hate the rectifier, the mark 4 or triaxis completely destroy it.

it's all personal taste.... the rectifier owns the mark IV & triaxis in the gain department... i like it more.
the triaxis was kinda a let down for me... everybody is always like "the triaxis blows the jmp-1, mp-1, and every other midi preamp out of the water!" i played a triaxis and a 2:100 poweramp next to my rack.... and my rig owned. more gain, more appealing tone..... not to say the triaxis is bad cuz it aint, i was just expecting more from a $1,600 preamp.
and i don't know about the whole mark IV compared to the diezel thing.... i'd take the deziel...
