    This is only my OPINION, as to the "popularity", and how many bands in a metal setting actually use these...

    1. 5150
    2. Marshall DSL
    3. Dual Rectifier/Triple
    4. Triple XXX
    5. JCM800 boosted/modded
    7. Engl
    8. Laney GH50L/100L/VH100R
    9. Diezel
    10. Bogner

          My Ampeg Vh-140c is the best I have heard for metal. Super tight metal voicing, no pedals required and extremely LOUD!!

              Scott Ian did at one time, don't know if he still does. I don't know why, his tone on their newest CD with all the re-recorded oldies is kinda ****************ty, IMO.

                Only if you are talking about the 800. There are other newer marshalls I would rather have IMHO.

                  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


                  *thumbsup* I agree.

                    here, here brother. for those people that made their own "metal" list if you didn't add this amp you should kill yourselves. this is a death metal amp that definitly eats a 8100, triple rectifier, 5150, and most other amps for breakfast. only amps better would be most engls and possibly bogners. but for the price its unbeatable.
                    MAIN GEAR:
                    esp h-301 (dimarzio x2n pickups)
                    ampeg vh-140c head
                    behringer 400 watt 4x12 cab
                    boss ns-2 noise gate

                        ..and who the hell is using Road Kings? I mean, great amp, but I've NEVER seen a metal or hard rock band with one?!?!?


                        A 5150 should have been in there for sure!

                          I think Scott Ian is playing a Randall Cyclone now? Is that right? It was one of the newer Randall amps. I know that his tone is awesome on the new Anthrax live DVD. I should look on there and see if it is in the background.

                            800s, especially the early ones, are built like tanks, sound godlike on their own (hint, crank the master), and take to pedals like cancer to the prostate (to quote Phantom Limb from The Venture Brothers).

                                I don't take GW mag serious anyways. It's all about mainstream **************** in that mag. It's not even a mag that is helpful in anyway. but to steer young guitarists in the wrong direction. **************** GW and may all the employes die a horrible death.
