not only did i never say otherwise. but you're wrong.
thickness "from a guitar" comes "from a guitar" alot of the thickness from a band might be a bass. basses can make the guitars seem beefier...

everybody knows that.... i never said they were ment for high gain.... except the rocpro, it does high gain fairly well..

jcm what???? they're all different amps... a jcm 800 is nothing like a jcm 2000 or a jcm 900....
jcm 800's do not "have all the distortion you need".... they're medium gain amps... they might be plenty for some, but most bands use boost pedals for extra gain with them... they still have a really sweet tone which is why alot of shredders love em.

jcm 900's arent exactly high gain either... i find i like the tone of them... but for alot of people a boost pedal is still required for the extra umff.

while jcm 2000's are geared more for high gain... because that's what people these days want. more gain. but then everybody complains that they don't sound like the 800's.... which totally confuses me because that's the point in a new amp. not to sound like an old amp.

Awesome rig!!
I love Parkers. I think theyre very good for black metal(though I dont play it) because you can make them sound thin or thick. They have alot of variety.

great, its an old one, from the '80's... they have a RAT II and a Turbo RAT out too, I like this version the best, great for supercharging something like a JCM 800.

I just use it for diversity, I prefer the Engl's distortion, but its nice to get those ac/dc sounds from the clean channel without having to switch settings. my engl has footswitchable boosts on both channels, which basically makes it 4 channels (clean/gritty cleans, od1/od2 high gain) and the proco just kinda adds one more. and that all from one head!

just a question about the engl savage... is it midi? the price tag would lead me to believe so, since it costs about as much as knuckle head reverb.

i often find that 20% of my tone is in my fingers... 30% is in the amp.... 20% is in the guitar.... and the other 30% is all in my head.

aside from that... i really dislike bc's... avt's are exactly my thang... nothing worth dreaming of imo.

well, any head can be setup to take midi commands n' such... www.axess-electronics.com the ac8 amp controller... talk to mario about it... he's the coolest gear dude on the planet and all of his shit is top notch quality and at great prices too. just explain to him what you want to do and he'll hook you up.
