New amp...

Post by CHrisP86 » Mon Aug 26, 2013 7:56 pm

There have probably been similar threads in the past but I fancy a new amp.

I have an MK50. I was playing it today and I'm actually wondering what amp I could buy that would give me anything more!! Just wondered if anyone else has the same thoughts and what other amps people have bought to compliment the MK50?

Also, anyone know what's going on with the musicradar forum? When is it coming back?

I don't think you can beat an RK as a stablemate for a MK50 :thumbup:

Thanks Freddy. Is there any chance that advice is slightly biased? :wink:

Slightly biased...no....very biased...Yes!

On a serious note...what sort of sound are you after?

At the moment, I'm thinking something like an Uberschall or Dual Rec. Just something maybe considered more high gain than the MK50 and that might give me something a bit different.

I hear good things about the Diezel Herbert as a high gain beast...or for something much more wallet friendly ....how about an EVH 5150.

Yeah, the 5150 3 mini is on my shortlist of amps to try out. £800 looks like great value! I was also thinking about the Mini Rec as a slightly cheaper option.

I can't see any Diezel stockists that are local to me (Surrey) so might not be able to try the Herbert. Sounds good from the clips I've heard though.
