I have been thinking about getting a solid state amp to get late 80's/early 90's metal tones like Pantera and old school death metal bands. I've see Randall has an amp called the Randall RG1003H. It seems to get good reviews and one of its channels is based on the rg100es which is an amp Dime used. I don't want to spend more than 300 dollars. I have a metal zone and tube screamer I can use as a boost and I have a GE 7 graphic eq as well as a genz benz gflex 2x12 cab. I have been wanting a solid state amp for a while. That way if a band wants a more old school tone (like the one I am currently recording) I can have an option for them other than amp modellers which to me sound best for really modern tones.
