What's the best 3 channel head out there?
Clean, Dirty, Lead
Best for who?
that one over there.
Ya had to go and ask that, didn't you?
...but it is the $64,000 question
...and it implies the answer as well
Christ. nevermind. I love my TSL too much to let it go anyway. I just wish the channel switching was better.
Diezel Herbert has been a good option for lots, especially if you are looking for seperate EQ's... the Suhr OD100 is also considered a three channel of sorts because of the massive amount of gain and tone variance with the boost engaged. The Bogner XTC and XTC Classic are popular for a modded Marshall sort of sound, but have a shared EQ of sorts. Those are SOME of many options... but if you are using a TSL... these are very much so improvements and re-interpretations of sounds that you'd be familiar with.
There has to be some way to fix it....
the XTC Classic is something I've considered...But I cant imagine how it would sound better than the voodoo modded marshall. Am I going to pay an extra $1200 for better channel switching?
Have you contacted Voodoo about modding the switching?
Trace at voodoo said it's impossible to mod the amp so that the switching is instant he'd have to completely redo the amp....at least $2k and he said he'd be "stealing my money". A cheap clean amp and and A/B switch would work...
prob not worth carting around another amp though....
The Suhr CAA looks amazing as does the XTC...what do you think the draw would be for a custom modded TSL? It goes for like $2100 new...
I like these amps far more than the Bogner Ecstasy 101b, Bogner Ecstasy Classic, VHT Ultralead, and Diezel Herbert I owned.
Check your email/pm box...
Boogie Mark IV is a great 3 channel amp but of course, you have to like that Boogie sound.
Newest Egnater Modular amps are s'posed to be the bees knees.
Yah the Mark IV isnt really my thing. The fatboy looks cool..but I can't find any info out there.
What do CAA and XTCs go for used?
TGA-3 is a truly great amp but in my mind it's really more like 2.5 channels.
TGA-2 is definitely 2 channels.
I'd check out the Egnater thing beforehand, they have gotten good reviews here (from Steve Snider amongst others) and it looks like a cool concept. Just check out the website.
You might also want to check out the VHT Hundred/CLX or Ultralead.
check out the framus dragon if you like marshall tones. it's a really killer amp.
