    we all know that a dual rec + a 5150 sounds incredible.

    What other amp combos sound amazing when blended?

    My go-to setup lately has been:
    Mesa Boogie Dual Recto 100% Left
    Marshall JCM 100% Right
    5150 Center
    Marshall Pexi Clone 50% Left
    Slo Clone 50% Right

    The combination of British and American voicings, along with the high gain saturation and low gain chunk really makes a nice wall of thick heavy sticky syruppy tone, IMO.

    I agree! :) Got amazing results on my band's current EP with me into a cleanish, scooped Fender Twin and the other guy into a very saturated, middy MarkV. The Twin brings clarity, snappy attack and chunky low end, the MarkV brings fullness and a snarling sustain. Together they sound just like I wish one amp could :)

    Orange Rockerverb 50 vs. Triple Rec sounds absolutely crushing. The girth and fizz of the Orange compliments the thump and clarity of the Triples monster power section.

    Fryette stuff sounds great in the mix too. Especially stuff SLO based like 5150s and Rectos.

    Dual Recto + Stiletto.

    Ask Devin Townsend.

    Randall V2 + 5150.
    Jcm800 + Dual Rect.

    The first one is perfect for sawblade-stuff, the second one for more dirt.
