Here's a list of amps I can hopefully get my paws on:
Mesa Dual Rec Roadster $1500/$1950 (asked him down, haven't heard back)
2ch or 3ch dual rec $1200-$1400
2ch or 3ch triple rec $1400
Mark IV $1675
Framus Dragon $1500
Bogner Uberschall $1800
Now, I'm pretty sure all those will get damn sexy tones for metal as well as other applications. I'm at the point where I can dial in my own sound fairly quickly with amps, so I'm not worried about that bit. I like warm, I like full, I like ballsy, and I like raw, open tone.
What're people's experiences with these? So far I've only contacted the roadster owners, and only 1 has gotten back to me.
(I didn't really want to be one of the guys who makes these threads, but.. well, it doesn't hurt to get info and feedback)
(yes, I am aware that that's a lot of variety there lol)
You're about to enter into the "Oh, for crying out loud" territory. As has been said many times by many people, if you want to sound like you're playing through a Recto, buy a bloody Recto. If that means not having it this week, so be it.
