Fucking randall RG100SC combo 2x12 amp, randall sells there shit for way cheap and its incredibly good, its got really nice stereo chorus and reverb to, its only around 400 and comes with a 5 switch midi pedal that rules, its also got a clean boost a mid voicing switch, its about the tightest and punchiest S.S. amp ive ever played, its FUCKING RULES I LOVE IT!

I saw this guy using a Crate GT3500H and it sounded insanely good. I don't know, maybe it was becuz the guy was an insane shredder, but he was using like an Epiphone Goth Explorer and it sounded really good.

Crate. The head is on a picture I posted in the 'Pics from your setup' thread, but I don't know which one it is (it's not mine)... But it's pretty heavy for only 400.

look no further than tech 21... owns randall and crate any day of the week... the tech 21 trade mark 300 is probably one of my favorite s.s. tops.

You dont like the Crate Necro?

I thought it was pretty much the same amp as the vh140c?? If your not too fond of the crate what makes you think you'll like the vh140c?

Does the GT350 Crate have the ability to go 8 ohms mode or No?

Also I like the Kustom Quad heads for Death metal good tone once you crank the volume to around 4 or 5

my Peavey Supreme is ok... nothing to great, you all know how that goes

i tried out some of the amps you guys suggested. I tried the tech 21 TM 60,
its a good amp, but lacks in those heavy metal tones. It's a good amp for clean stuff, nice and sparkly. very versatile amp for all kinds of music except Metal, not enough distortion and not heavy enough.

Then i tried the randall RG100SC 212, i have never tried any randall amps before so i didn't know what to expect other then what some of you guys said here. This amp i must say, is pretty good for how much it cost. Can
hit some heavy stuff and sound good to. Overall i do like this amp.

Because last time I saw Killswitch Engage, I remember some amp with blue lights on it.

i think unearth used engl's on stings of conscience... oncoming storm was pretty much framus cobras.

but i guess they did something stupid an switched to the peavey 6505's... i mean, the 6505's(5150s) are good amps, but they're not even in the same league as framus.

haha... the prices for framus stuff at music123 is retarded. rocksolid amps sells cobras and dragons for like 1,800-1,900... music123 wants 2,100-2,400.

Randall RH200s sound good, and are only 400$, I'm pretty partial to the Line6 Flextone II head too.

Well Im not sure if they are using 5150's live.. but I can almost guarentee that they did use them when recording. Since Adam D from KSE produced TOS im sure he double tracked a 5150 and a Framus both boosted with the Maxon, like he did with the KSE album.

i saw them back in october, and if memory serves me correctly, i think he was using a Mesa... but im not sure about that at all. Im actualy quite unsure. But if i had to try to remember, i would say he was using a Mesa.

maybe he broke his framus again... those guys break em' all the time... but we're talking constant touring those things have to go through.. and unearth has been known to do crazy shit like say, stand on top of their amps...
not that it matters, rectos are great too... that's why he has it for a backup to the cobra.

Thats what Adam D says, he says the Framus' are unreliable. KSE has 4 on tour with them.. thats two backups that are most likely in use often.

Its kinda killing my GAS Of course if I did buy one It wouldnt leave my house

tube amps are like that... fragile, and with touring.. you have it in the trailer getting bumped around and stuff all day, plus everynight you're pulling it out of the trailer setting it up, rocking it, throwing it back in the trailer, ect... might not matter at first, but after say, 30 days, that's alot of oportunity for problems.

it's alot to put on an amp...

Well yeh, but ive heard more horror stories about Framus' than other amps.

Of course I dont think KSE even uses cases with their heads

I think their music got MUCH better, but the new singer dosent cut it.. he has a good voice but a bad scream.

their music has always been great, and i agree, the new album is a step up, but my god.... Howard Jones shouldnt scream. whoever does the backup has a good scream

I believe the backup screams are actually their old singer.. I know he recorded some vocals on the new record, and Adam D. only does clean backup vocals.

I really dont like their old music though.. too simple. and boring, but the new record has alot more melody and some really catchy riffs.
