    I ask because I’m looking for something crunchy, chewy, harmonicy, heavy, chimed, leady, clean, headroomy, spongey, mojoey, cabby, cabless, heavy, light, high powered, bang for buck, pricey, gritty, sparkling and toxic.

    Budget is up to 5k but try to keep it low because I’m broke. I’m an SS guy but I’m a tube guy.


    And... go!

    Sounds like a job for a Gorilla amp.

    Vintage crate GX15r circa 1993. The mids are haunting. Can't go wrong. Eats Dumbles for breakfast.

    Well, I sold my beloved Dumble for a Katana amp.

    Tone is in your mind -- the fingers, guitar, and amp don't matter.

    The FOX 500W should meet most of your requirements. Your welcome!

    If you need more crunchy and chewy than that, I suggest peanuts and bubble gum.

    Only an amp that nobody else has ever heard of. If I ever see someone else playing that amp, I have to move on.

    Buying cheese would be easy if they just sold one that was round and in slices. Cheese was made for burgers. But cheese slices are always square. It’s so difficult:(

    Whatever amp I amp using at the moments is always the best amp. It is the only amp that matters. All the rest are unimportant.
