A buddy of mine is on a limited income. He wants a tube amp but has decided solidstate is his best option for multiple reasons...i tried to tell him about different tube amps/used amps etc....but...he's stubborn and wants to go solidstate....he wants to get a George Lynch like tone the best he can....He said he could spend about $500 total...he wants a head but he wants to buy wah pedal and other stuff as well....he has a 2x12 cab i think it's a marshall 1936 2x12...but anyway...what solidstate head would you guys recommend for getting as close as possible to Lynch tone of Dokken/Lynch Mob era....peavey?, randall?, marshall MG series? I told him i'd ask you guys!!!
Depends on what Lynch tone he wants. Lynch had many different tones.
The closest Lynch tone that he can get for $500 is the tooth and nail tone. That is no more then a Randall rg80 or rg100 with a boost pedal.
If he want a different Lynch tone he will need an old marshall, a boost pedal and h30 speakers along with a maple bodied guitar.
Hope that helps bro!!
well for 500 bucks his options are very limited...he'll just have to settle...i told him to get something versatile...so he can play different styles on one amp...ehh...he'll have to figure it out...i appreciate all the suggestions and I'll pass them on to him!
