So I've had tube amps for 5 years now. Don't get me wrong, they sound great. But I've recently found the sound of solid state amps much more satisfying for what I play, which is black metal. I've found that my 6505+ is just boring to play. I've been playing my Boss Katana MK II way more. I don't know if I'm going nuts or what, but it just seems to give me something that the Peavey doesn't and as a result, I'm thinking of picking up a Peavey Bandit and a Quilter Overdrive 200. Has anyone else made this move because solid state seemed to give them something that tube didn't?

Whatever works for you is what to do.. the whole vs mentality is silly to me. However and whatever you use to chase that sound is right. People who think only certain things are to be used are puppets.... dont be a puppet.

If you get a Bandit, get one of the old fuckin' bitchin green stripe ones. Those are the good for oldschool 80s thrash playing. The later ones w/the chrome panel suck.

My dad had one of the later ones. It sounded amazing back when I first started and thought the Boss Metalcore was a great distortion pedal.

That being said, Dad's always used Peaveys, so when I tried to talk him into buying me a 6505, he was sold when I said Peavey. :metal:

I never thought I'd be happy with a modeler, but then I bought one, and found out it was lighter and awesome, so... people change? :lol:
