hello there, people.
its my first post on this forum, so lets begin with a short story.
i am interested in solid state guitar amp to gig with...
and dont get me wrong - its not about tubes vs ss kind of thread.
i already have bogner uber and love it to death!
also plan to buy another one high gain head (diezel, maybe) to play and record with - in the future, of course.
right now i need something that dont weight like a tank but sounds awesome.
i hear and read a lot about some kind of tube emulation solid state amps that claims to sounds good.
searching something interesting over the internet, i luckily find samples of russian custom tube emulation amps -
very impressive, but not really anough gain for my needs (kind of jcm800)...
so, here is my question - are there any kind of such amp that sounds and responds like my uber or just close
enough to pay attention? or, rephrasing initial question - are there solid state amps which sounds so good that i can stop my sonic quest with compact\lightweight gig setup in mind?
already hear in live situations:
ampeg vh140 - hard to get as i know... some king of legend, but dont impress me enough
randall rg100 - oh my god, this one sounds like shit
marshall mg100hdfx - totally dislike
line 6 - not my tone and thats it
kempfer - really good, but i hate processors cause of a lot of tweaks
maybe there is custom or boutique or anything that can do it for me??? i just need good high gain tone...
money is no object, almost... i need your help, fellows!
What kind of tone are you after? "Good high gain tone" means something different to everyone - what do you consider a good tone?
