2000$ to spend on a botique amp.

I will have 2000$ soon enough when summer is finished. I am considering all the options, Bogner, Engl, VHT, Mesa, even rack shit. I am torn more between the Fireball and Powerball, but I might go for an Uberschall if I can get one for 2000$. Please reccomend a cabinet to go with the amps.

I hear VHT cabs are tighter than 11 year olds vag, so that may be a good suggestion,

i'll sell you my voodoo hex'd/mig 100 for a grand (shipped) if you're down. i'm in need of some serious cash for college classes and shit.


as for the fireball v.s. the powerball. you'll be able to get pretty much the same sounds from the fireball. but less headroom, slightly less balls, and a smidget less volume(60w tube is still way loud though). not to mention you'll have a more limiting eq'. as it's basically a half the power/half the features version of the powerball.

the bogner uberschall imo is way different from any engl. imo it's got a nastier sound to it. as it's very dark and has more of a super marshall tone to it, than the modern, super tight/compressed high gain sound that engl's deliver.

both deliver the goods, just in different ways.

i'm definately into bogner's customer service, very personal and the LIFETIME WARRANTY. definately makes it worth it. even though they're so well built you'd probably never need it. it's just exta piece of mind when the drunk band mate decides to put his mug on your head.

Your voodoo is only 1 channel right? I want a good clean tone too. I'm also open to rack setups. Tube, SS, whatever kicks mucho ass.

right. you still don't have the preamp? haha.

just play them all instead of wasting our time here. there's been enough said about most of these amps, just search and play them first, then come back.

six feet under uses dual recto's in the live with full force concert. An their tone was awesome imo. Sometimes it got a bit blurry, but the rest was tight.

Marshall MG100DFX. Buy it, don't even play it first. AND you'll have $1300 left over to buy porn.
