ok I am trying out new amps to buy and today I tried a MESA BOOGIE Triple Rectifier, the double and the single and they ALL sucked for heavy, clean crunch. I could get a half way descent crunch out of them but then all the notes sounded dirty. Even they guys at the music store agreed and couldn't get a good heavy tone out of it. I thought those amps were supposed to be good for that. I was using my new Ibanez Prestigue RG 2570EX with Dimarzio/IBZ pick-ups and I even used a Jackson with Seymour Duncans. I get better tone out of my 100 watt peavey combo.
Can anyone suggest any amps to try out for good cleran heavy tone? I don't mean a clean channel I mean clean crunchy distortion that doesn't sound like an outhouse.
