    Default High Gain Amp Shootout

    Hi guys,

    I saw this amazing post on the Gear Page forum. This guy in Hollywood invited all the major amp manufacturers and boutique amp makers to a high gain amp shootout. The amps were all recorded and put together in one recording studio for a whole day of recording.

    This is the best amp comparison I have ever seen. Check out the clips and the Youtube vids. I give a high applause to this guy! I had nothing to do with this but I am just passing it along to other gear heads!

    This is a soundclick of all the amps recorded so you can compare the tones. Awesome!

    Very cool. But what is a Marshall '69 Angry Hippie?

    EDIT

    Ok, it's a mod. Sorry But yeah, this is a wonderful tone comparison.

    I especially like the EVH 5150 III and Marshall DSL clips as I have these amps. I think they both sounds great!

    I love the Soldano SLO too.

    This comparison is amazing!

    I preferred listening to the audio clips. An excellent comparison.

    The 5150 III sounded terrific, as did the Soldano SLO and the Bogner Shiva custom. The DSL sounded pretty darn good too. That Framus had an awful lot of gain, even more than a 5150 it seemed.

    Thanks for the links. I will have to listen again.

    That was cool thanks for the links. I enjoyed that. The jose moded 69 Marshall sounds sweet. A lot of nice amps there, hard to pick a favorite. I dug the guys studio setup also.

    In Thailand you get that, food for the evening, drinks for the evening, and lodging accomodations for $50. Might even be able to throw in a foot massage!

    Nahh. You put yourself in an embarassing situation like that where you could easily check out by mistake? I'd say it's fair game.

    You don't even want to know about "The Penguin". It's illegal in 7 countries and it makes the "Chicago Hot Plate" and the "Grumpy Munchkin" look like a boring Tuesday night roll in the hay...

    I have no idea what that means...
