I agree, but it's more then fuzzy distortion, the powerball/savage's stay tight as fuck, and thats what the rack things don't seem to do with the wrong poweramps..

an e570 is versatile as fuck, but.. you have to know what you're doing. I don't know what amp you have now, but some people just suck at getting their tone right. seriously, if you're an amp noob you might be better off getting something else. as in simpler to control and less expensive. hell you dont' want to spend your year's earning on amps alone now do you? (leave some space for booze, going out with chicks and all that shit. )

well, right now i still have my shitty peavey XL and my crate combo. Peices of shit if you ask me. But yeah, im probably just going to go with the ampeg, like before because it provides my holy grail of tone, the one from peirced from within. Sludgy, tight, and extremely focused, almost like the bands namesake, suffocating. Anyway, i might upgrade to a rack sooner or later, or if my band really takes off.

Meh i have the money and if i could buy a good preamp of some sorts i could slave my amp which is a Musicman RD-100 that i use a BOSS MD-2 in front of. I can get pretty good sounds but with just a simple preamp like a Peavey Rockmaster or a Boogie Studio Preamp i could get even better sounds and the signal would be all tube, thus not sounding like ass like it does when i crank my amp.

Id connect the preamp to my poweramp section and woila!....

PS: My amp is an old school hybrid with tubes in the poweramp instead of the preamp.

so true... although tube preamp dist is pretty good, alot of solid state stuff tends to sag less than tube stuff, like the recto for instance.

i don't mind s.s. at all as long as it's quality...
i'm getting a sansamp psa-1 s.s. preamp and it owns in tone, because it's quality analog(not digital) s.s. that isnt trying to mimic anything.
i have a peavey cs800 s.s. poweramp that i used(still do occasionally) in my guitar rig before i got my 50/50, it sounds great, 400w per side which is such clean headroom(something you want with s.s.) and more than enough volume for anybody..

s.s. isnt so bad really, it's just normally found in cheap/shitty amps because s.s. is easier and cheaper to produce.

exactly, Terrance from Suffo uses SS, in fact the amp i reconsidered getting, and probably will, now that theres no reason for an e570, at least until i get enough into music that i will actually use it. But anyway, SS stuff can be quality as long as its made with quality.

very much so, they were discontinued in 99 or 96 i believe, and one pops up on ebay about every 3 months.

SVTs are for bass, though. These are guitar heads.

Yeh i know SS can be good but Musicman isnt really for metal which is why i thought about bying a preamp that can handle it, and we all know pedals arent really that good...

omg... so the other day i was jamming on my buddy's jcm 900... and my drummer(who also plays a little guitar in his spare time)'s boss metalzone(just for shits and giggles) and i actually got some tones out of it that didn't completely suck, though buy using the pedal it sucked out the signal alittle when it was bypassed and there is a huge volume drop when it's on so it's not usable in a band environment. but it really amazed me for a second... that's how much medium gain marshall type amps like pedals.
though i still preffered my methods of "dime every knob except reverb and crunch that shit.".

not alll pedals completely suck, i just don't see why soe people use them the way they do... "i'm going to buy a mesa because it's a mesa but i'm going to use a $70 distortion pedal.", i mean, what is that?

Yeh, that of course, i do use my pedal because my amp doesnt have the distortion that i would like, but still, there is something about it that i dont like....
