yeah but if he didn't have mic's . I would bet money on it that he was running into some kind of speaker sampling direct box... The real nice H&K's have direct outs that get sent to the PA and Monitors.. H&K was known for their red box speaker sim.

changing the subject ever so slightly however sticking to the main topic. I am looking at buying some new equipment since joining a post-hardcore screamo band a few months ago. I bet you guys are like hardcore! Screamo! What a freaaakk! But whatever I have a pretty broad music taste and its a fun band with mad guys and heaps fun.

Anyway I've been shopping around testing out amps and I'm a bit unsure of what i'm doing to be honest hahahaha bit of a noob I know. At the moment I use a line 6 spider something that gets some alright sounds for the genre I'm in but its too small and sounds like farts when I turn up loud and pretty much just gets drowned out. I don't mind the line 6 I think its good for the value and they're pretty versatile but I have some money so I wanna spend it!

I tested out some big marshall stacks a triple super lead or something i think the head was called? It was pretty sweet but it was definitely too rocky and not heavy enough for what I want and I don't wanna have to spend heaps on pedals either. I tested out some shitty fender which didn't impress me, I tried another line 6 which was way too similar to what I already have but alas I tried this 75W (if i remember correctly that is) 2x12inch mesa combo amp. It was easily as loud and had a mad sound! It seemed really good though and probably more what im looking for in tone and a nice clean sound too.

I was thinking of getting a cabinet and stuff cos they look cool and heaps of power but I really don't think I need it and they're really expensive. So I'm thinking if I spend some good money on this mesa it will do the job and i might have some money to spend on a new guitar (Y)

I can't remember the model type of this mesa amp but if anyone has any feedback that would be awesome

Mesa at least a duel probably a triple rectifier amp would be better or ... just spend the beans and get a Hughes and Kettner Switchblade with effects built in.. or  really hit the hardcore with  a KRANK  amp.

Ended up buying an ENGL Screamer head and cab. Pretty awesome little thing. Perfect for my sound plus really good for alternative rock.
