      OK, aren't these sort of the same basic amp? AND WTF has recorded with a MF-350? Remove one and insert 5150

        That MAGAZINE is a complete joke.

        Pretty much any random people here could start a magazine called something like "Actually About Guitar Magazine" and it would 100,000 times better than that POS even if it was 5 pages long.

        My favorite "list" those magazines do are all the "top 100 guitar players" or whatever, and there's always guys like Jack White and Kurt Cobain almost at the tip top.

            The Mode Four? They have got to be kidding.

            +1 for the 5150.
            How could they not recognise such an important amp in the sound of Scandinavian metal???

            Road King?? WTF? When was that a metal amp?

            No Powerball, Diezel, Framus?!

              The one with the top 10 metal amps is the same one that has the 100 greatest metal guitarists of all time. It has Tomy Iommi as #1. I was just looking at that issue the other day(Holy Wars...tab). GW mags are like 190 pages and about 150 or so are advertisements.

                Cochise, every guitar magazine has a top 100 players or something very similar at least once a year.

                That just makes it even funnier that there was ANOTHER ONE in the very same issue as the amp list hehe.

                If they were serious and actually knew anything, they wouldn't be ranking stuff and people in the first place.

                    Yes but it is a mix of that and actual amps that were probably voted for..
                    Theres no way most people think this would be here:

                    8. Marshall MF-350

                    Not if they value their sanity.. Thats definitely a marketing ploy..Some mag will probably have the Fender Metalhead in the same spot a year from now!!!


                    And yes, where the **************** are the Mesa Mark series?!!! THats a classic sound all its own!!!

                    And yes the 5150 not on there? Its the standard sound for Scandavian Metal!!!
                    Gear used:

                    Jackson King V Professional Standard (SD Distortion, SD JAZZ), Jackson Dinky Reverse (Dimarzio Evolution, Dimarzio Air Norton), Peavey Destiny Custom (Duncan Distortion Bridge, rest stock), Ibanez RG 470 with Air Norton and Steve's Special, Mesa Mark III (M/) Red Stripe Rackmount head, 5150 with 5150 Cabinent, Tc Electronics G Major, Cry Baby Wah. Ibanez Nylon Acoustic.

                          Ok. Ive played a few JCM800's. Why are they considered a metal amp????
                          They have very very little gain really. The 900's are a higher gain amp....

                          Im not saying 800's arent great...they sound very very very nice...but in order to be "metal" they have to be boosted/modded. right?
                          Wouldn't this kinda knock them off the list?

                          I've never heard anybody use a jcm800 for anything remotely heavy without a boost/OD pedal. I guess that kinda just bugs me when they leave out the 5150.
                          Maybe it shoulda been 1. BOOSTED JCM800. That would be a-ok
                          Life is ours. We live it our way.

                            My 3 fave metal amps:

                            1. Savage 120

                            For it's cool charachter, great attack, more then enough gain and the versatility. Adding the Engl midi pedal to this amp will probably rule.

                            2. Marshall Valvestate

                            A cheap! amp very good for metal. At higher wolumes this is a beast recorded. Used by many known bands. And! the clean channel is great on this amp!. If i recommend an amp to a first time buyer i'd say a Valvestate for metal.

                            3. Peavey Ultra +

                            This amp is the coolest amp i have owned cosmestic with the colur shifting logo. Sounds great with new tubes and an Eq in the loop. Great vintage feeling metal sounding.

                              The JCM 800 does of course need a boost but the fact that it has been and still is used by countless metal bands over the years makes it a legend.
                              Disturbing... Yet strangely arousing.

                                Many of the "signature" 5150 tones are in fact pedal boosted. Many bands record the rectifier with a boost pedal for solos. Not a good argument.

                                The ModeFour - I dunno. The valvestate series was also considered a cheap piece of **************** when I had my 8080 about 10 years ago, and now everyone wants one for recording. Maybe the ModeFour has also secretly found a place in recording studios - no-one wants to admit to using one right now, but it does something special.


                                The HD147 in that list... hrm. I play one, and I think it's a fantastic amp, but can it really be on the list when it's mostly modelling the other amps on the list? (Actually, I mostly use the Line6 models on mine, that's where I found "my" sound, but still).
                                Marshall 2466 Vintage Modern.
                                Cabs: Mesa/Boogie Vertical 2x12 (half-back)
                                Guitars: Ibanez UV777PBK, Ibanez K7 (with BKP Painkillers), Shecter 006 Deluxe, Jackson Kelly Standard, Ibanez SRX705, Takamine Classical, Taylor Acoustic.
