    I'm looking at buying myself a 7 string and some gear next month and from what I have seen and read the Jeff Loomis, Schecter C7 FR 7-string is the way to go.Its been recommended that I get my hands on a marshall jvm aswell.

    Any thoughts?I don`t know much about the different 7 string models and im trying to pick up as much as I can before making a purchase.Thanks

    the Schecter Loomis 7 strings are sweet!!! they even make one in a fixed bridge if you prefer that. but what kinda tones are u goin for? what are ur influences? that is important to know in helping decide what amps are right for you

    My influences, although predominantly death metal, vary. I consider myself quite an Obscura fan
    -
    I play in what I guess you could consider a technical death metal band
    Not everyone's favourite vibe but we all have our [FONT=&quot]preferences[/FONT]:)


    Might aswell look for a pedal aswell.Ultimately a very clear and crisp lead with a great bright tone while when playing more rythm id still want to be clear and concise so you can hear the articulation of every note.Im no guitar boff but i guess thats why im asking for help.

    Although I've never actually played one, Engls are pretty popular in the tech death genre. Savage, Invader or SE. Maybe even the E530 preamp, it's supposed to be amazingly tight/dry/clear (been wanting to get my hands on one).

    I have the Loomis Fixed Bridge, awesome guitar, unbelievable quality, huge fan of the maple fretboard and ash body.

    No experience with the amp, how much total $ do you have to spend?

    Get the Savage 120. My buddy plays a Loomis FR through a Savage 120 and the resulting tones are just insane.

    Well so far im only hearing good things about the Schecter.Any other guitars worth looking into?

    Im in South Africa so I have to ship whatever I get but id say about $6500 roughly

    Its saddening though because whatever I order I cannot try out before because they dont have what I want here :(

    The only amps I could recommend on experience are the 6505 and Kranks, and I like both a lot, but I've heard great things about the JVM and Fireball 100.

    That's alright, about average for the US at least.

    I'd say you wanna look more at 6505/5150's and maybe an Engl, or Diezel if that's an option. And a tubescreamer and noisegate.
