xxl's are somewhat ok, not the best, but alright for a SS combo/head.

but watch out their tubes can overhead and blow up.

are you the all knowing

I guess theres one person in here who knows all , yet I havent heard you on any Cds or on a major tour , or anything else.
look i dont claim to know everything , But Im 47 been playing guitar since early teens , I grew up when you had to be a great player to make it , not tune down to ZZ and play 1 finger chords and not solo, I ve seen almost every major act , barring a few, including randy rhoads with ozzy .
So the point being Im not some snot mosed teeny with 2 months of experience , My friends own guitar and music shops , I v have close friends who have toured and recorded ,So if you want to talk shit , lets do it , you know whom im talking about,
otherwise , ill talk gear or guitar 24/7 , and im open to all ideas,
oh yeah BTW I had a flextone II , it sucked I promptly sold it , So therefore having a Line6 and a triple XXX and a Marshall and a Koch , I think I know somewhat what Im talking about.

know it all? hell no... know alot? sure. at least enough to call your ignorant remarks.

hah, ok, lets see your band, your cd.... yeah that's right. you can't give me shit for not being some famous musician, and then you? where's your major label band.
i've been in small label bands, played shows, recorded music, ect...
but then again, what does that have to do with anything we're talking about? nothing. me being in bands isnt something i brag about so people listen to me.

age and music prefference is no excuse for ignorance. i'm a young college guy, been playing since i was like 12-13... i've owned alot of amps, h&k triamp, rivera tbr-1m, mig 100, engl, splawn, marshall, mesa, peavey, bogner, ect... i've been to over a hundred shows easy. who cares?

who the hell cares if you've seen ozzy? fuck, in month i'll be seeing him again too... do i get some kind of badge of credibility?

so far you're off to a bad start. lets work on your "open to all ideas" and not stating opinions in forms of facts. and thus making you appear like such an asshat.

once again, you can't judge an amp maker by their low end products. shit, that's like me saying your dsl100 is garbage because my first amp was an mg.

marshall dsl, good head, but IMO far from the best, same with the triple x. the koch stuff is pretty good too. i'm not saying your amps suck. but i'm saying all this stating your opinions like their facts, and acting like your marshall dsl is handsdown better than X amp. it's bullshit.

you come in here and straight up line 6 just plain sucks. as if it's some sort of fact? your opinion aint a fact bro.

i have no problem getting a line 6 head to sound great. sure it's not my personal favorite. but opinions are like assholes, everyone has one.

you should buy my band's cd.. we played shows with pretty big UK/US bands on their euro tours :P

what kinda Koch have you got? they're Dutch amps so I know all their models, they're pretty damn good... I'm guessing you've got a Powertone?

I prefer my Engl Savage and Engl Powerball over the Powertone, they're more aggressive but maybe a bit less refined as the Powertone. I'm thinking of buying a studiotone for playing at home.

On another note, it doesn't matter how old you are, I'm 22, in a signed band, played shows with some big American bands, got my own custom made guitar, a nice collection of tube amps and I teach guitar and bass guitar.
That doesn't matter much either, there's probably people here that can outplay me when it comes to shredding, there's allways someone better then you, no doubt about that..

fact is, we're both no snot nosed teen. but that doesn't grant you the right to say you're better then them. not even if you're an old fuck with 13490182 years of experience. I'm on my 7/8th year of playing guitar and I teach guys twice my age that can't play for shit, doesn't mean they're not enjoying themselves.

ive been looking for the mother of all amps

believe me wish I wish Line6 amps was good , I like their modeler pedals , I have the 4 modeling pedals all good shit , I wish their amps were good too , I like the idea behind line 6 .
all Im saying the vetta is a great idea , but the 1600 they want for the combo or just the head , you can do better , Tell me if Im wrong, I never said the peavey XXX is bad , I have one , its a great head for the money less than 800 when I got it , But I think its limited , If you want that one tone its pretty cool , a real gain monster , but the JSX IMHO is more versatile, I did not like the 5150 or 6550 s too bottom heavy for my taste . Look is Marshall the best probably if you want to spend big bucks on a bogner or a soldano or a engl than Id say no , but for the average guitar player you cant go wrong with a marshall , maybe not the DSL if you dont like it but the JCM 800 will more than do , I used to jones for a boogie , but the new ones I feel are too muddy ,
Look if I came across as a expert , than Im sorry , all I was trying to do was convey my OPINION, ok
so truce dude , im sure if we met we , d hoist a few suds together jam out and form a band lol

Marshall makes a lot of great stuff for more 'hard rock' or 'heavy metal' orientated players, but it is lacking in versatility and gain neccesary for the more modern metal variations. And I'm not talking about Drop-Z "nu-mettle". Plus their way overpriced now.
But ok, you came back from your statement that "marshall owns all".

Also, no insult intended, but you said you were 47. How come your incoherent posts looked like they've been made by a 14-year old fat goth nerd?

you almost made it

I was digging what u had to say but you had to go throw in the dig , first off , cause im speaking from experience, The marshall and again im not a marshall groupie sounds how you play , you cant hide shitty playing with them , whereas as alot of inferior amps you can play like balls and sound great, look maybe im old school , when you had to know to play , and not drop tune everything, when you had to be able to solo your ass off , thats who i want to hear , players like zakk , schenker , yngwie, saxon , priest , maiden , even testament with james murphy .
so if you disagree fine , thats your right , just lay off the flames,

Lots of players who drop-tune to "Z" ( Anyone from Suffocation, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, etc. ) can hang with Schenker, Yngwie, Zakk, Testament, etc.

And no one seems to have brought up all the shitty musicians who use Marshall ...

Terrence Hobbs, Jack Owens, Trey Azagthoth, Karl Sanders/Dallas-Toler Wade, Scott Hull, all virtuosos and masters of their instrument. For you to refer to them as 'sub-par' musicians shows that you trust in a great deal of assumption. And yes, I know virtuosic playing : I own more Dream Theater, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, BLS/Zakk Wylde, Frank Gambale and Greg Howe records than you can shake a stick at. And I can tell you that "Frantic Disembowelment" is just as hard to tackle as Paganinni's 5th Caprice, because I can play both.

And about my musical project in my sig, there you go with the personal insults. I'm not the best player on these boards, but I'm no slouch either, and I think the rest of MetalTabs will agree with me. But we all know that any high school beginner can play the staccato solo with the 32nd notes and wide interval jumps in "333" .

Listen to Necrophagist, and then repeat what you've said with a straight face.

Listen to Necrophagist, and then repeat what you've said with a straight face.

If what you say is true you wouldnt have said the silly ass comments
first off unless you know me , how the hell do you know who or what I listen to , and I how many CDs I have .
my favorite death bands out of the ones you mentioned is morbid , I like Vader as well ,
I agree with yu about Trey , he a great player , as is James Murphy .
oh and by the way I probably have about 10,000 cds , bought and downloaded ,
Il take bands like Cathedral , force of evil , stratovarius . blind guardian , nevermore , at the very least the singers can sing not growl every song .
As far as Gambale , Howe , etc Ive seen them in the 80s , i know the shrapnel catalog too , joey tafalla , viinie moore macalpine etc , chastain , SO What , all great players they aint in death metal bands , my only complaint with death metal is not really the guitar players alot I grant you are good , I hate the cookie monster vocals,
So can we agree to disagree
