Rockerverb vs JVM410H vs Dual Rectifier vs 6505...


Hey guys!

I thought it would be both fun and useful to compare the sounds of some of my 'BIG boy' amps so I chose 4 that are relatively popular. We've got the Orange Rockerverb 50 MKIII, the Marshall JVM410H, the Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier and the Peavey 6505. They obviously don't share the same wattage ratings but they're all pretty big, loud and high-gain! Most of them are pretty versatile too though!

So we're doing clean tones with the neck pickup on my Gibson Les Paul Classic, which is a Classic 57 pickup to be exact. Crunch tones with that same guitar but with the bridge pickup, which is a Super 57. Heavy rock tones with my ESP LTD NW-44, which has a Bareknuckle Aftermath in it. And also downtuned baritone metal with my ESP LTD EC401B with EMG's.

It's pretty hard to pick a favorite but I guess I like the Orange Rockerverb the most across the board. The Marshall has a nice chunk and midrange definition/presence though, the Recto sounds cool for the Rock stuff and the 6505 has a very big roar in the high-gain department.

What do you guys think?
