So. I intend to buy a head for X-mas. My current Koch Twintone doesn't get into the metal corner, even with EQ and Boost. I found a decent tone but I am after a clean crunch edge: A fat cutting tone to go Soilwork, Arch Enemy and so. I managed to control the hiss and got a more defined tone out of the amp but it's still too mellow when set up right. If I go further it will just have uncontrolled gain with an undefined sound. It's just not agressive enough for the sevenstring. The Les Paul takes it just great. Like a Marshall kinda deal. I should mention I am getting this head exclusively to go with my RG1527 loaded with S. Duncan Blackouts. Given the size of the equipment and its specs you see I am after something that will do the best tone at home and little rehearshals. Something that eventually could be plugged to a bigger cab, too. So. I have been looking for a few amps that are within my budget. I will present them here in a list from cheap to more expensive and you can give me your opinions. These are going to go into my 1x12 (4 and 8 ohm connection) cone in the Twintone. I will keep the Koch amp for overall playing and intend to use the new thing as a one trick metal pony. 1.Orange Tiny Terror 15 Head I have tried it and I boosted it wildly with a MXR overdrive. I played some Judas Priest on it and it sounded fucking awesome. But Going into the groove side of things I didn't like it as much. Pantera is not really what it can take. 2. Peavey Valve King Head I have seen some demos and liked it. Was going for one of these, but a guy at the local shop told me they are pretty weak. I don't know if it's a hybrid or a full tube, but I know I have seen people rip the shit with them on stage. As a home-eventual gig piece of gear it seems to be a good option. I see you can get a very tight tone with active pickpups, so that is worth of consideration given my axe's specs. Apparently it is very boomy on the cleans though. I won't use it for that though... 3.Engl E 315 Gigmaster Head I don't know about this one neither. I don't know if it's alltube or not. I don't know if it holds up with the rest of the Engls. I have tried a Thunder. But I don't know if this one, also with less Watt would be good enough to get into that specific beef corner. Don't know if it will have the balls as it looks quiet similar to the Tiny Terror to me as far as the specs go. Can't find one to try it though. If it can get the 1x12 to be a bitch though. I'd like this option to be honest... ahaha. 4.Randall RH 150G3PLUS Head A hybrid I was considering for the price, but an option that I have read here and in other forums is kind of a hit or miss affair. Some say they were lucky to get a good one and some say it was crap. I don't like the idea of it being a mixed amp. What part is the tube part, if the distortion on this one is not tube driven I don't want it I guess. 5.Randall RH 50T Head Same info as with the other. If it's not all tube, the 50W will be less than I am used to. If it's all tube it will be exactly what I have now and go perfect with the 1x12. Didn't find much about this one though. 6.Orange Dual Terror Head I like it. But I don't know I could get it into the corner I wish, even with the flat tone. 7.KRANK REVOLUTION JR PRO 50 IF it's really what it promises and it sounds like in the demos. THis thing can roar like a mother fucker. I haven't seen it boosted, but as a standalone it crunches with power. It' sa mean little one trick pony, but maybe what I am after. There is no place in Madrid to try it out so I would have to order it from Germany. 8.Engl E 325 Thunder 50 Head Power amp tubes. All tube, then. Sounds good on the demos. Saw a guy play it live. But it was a Sabbath Cover Band. Not sure about it yet. So. WHich one of these would you like better and why. I just need to know a little bit more about them and first hand experience from other players is highly welcomed. Have a great day, guys! See ya!
