In search of a good amplifier

Post by Alkarii » Sun Dec 28, 2014 3:46 pm

Okay, I'm primarily a bassist, but I've also got a 7-string guitar. I need a good amplifier that'll handle the low end well. The style I play is metal, kinda close to Slipknot/Mushroomhead with some noticeable '80 thrash influences.

My Hartke bass amp works great for my basses, but I don't want my guitar to sound so much like a bass. Obviously a tube amp, since it's much easier and cheaper to replace blown tubes than fixing burned-out circuity. The question is, what brands should I look at first to save time at the music store?

I know enough to take my instrument up there with new strings to test it, so you don't have to tell me that part.
There is no such thing as a science experiment gone wrong.
