This is my first post and Im excited to join the board. Im kind of a luddite when it comes to gear, but Ive been trying to expand my horizons and maybe try some of the new technology thats become available so please bear with me. Im looking at a pre/power amp setup that can cover a gamut of sounds while still being easy to transport and push some air. Im a big fan of classic solid state sounds, and ideally I'd like something that can go from stoner tones like a Sunn Beta to thrash/death metal sounds like a Marshall 8100. I like that the ISP Theta and the AMS SS-20 have knobs and switches that can be controlled directly. Again, Im kind of a meat-and-potatoes player who prefers direct and reliable set-up to a complicated, intricate one. I dont really need MIDI compatibility or effects, just some good preamp tones. Am I barking up the right tree? Is there a relatively straight-forward preamp or preamp pedal that can go from Melvins to Death without a bunch of additional options and signal processing? Thanks in advance!
