Orange Thunderverb tone doesn't interest me :\, I'd love an ENGL... maybe if I win the lottery or something XD. Orange Thunderverb tone doesn't interest me :\, I'd love an ENGL... maybe if I win the lottery or something XD.

Very hard to say, but as a general overview it is impossible to make a recommendation, i could say Mesa but just listen to Nevermore with Krank and Engl or listen to Meshuggah with Line 6, the idea is that you make the amp sound good no matter what gear your using.

It's not just the amp you're to consider, cabinets play a huuuge role too...

I myself am getting an Engl Savage and a pro cab so I think I'll do quite nicely ;)

Well, look for an online manual for an amp and since I believe the B is at 123Hz look for an amp that will respond down to at least 100Hz so you can still do drop tunings.

yeah, I definitely have to agree with the Mesa idea. ENGL are great from what I've heard.

There's way too many factors that can change your sound, especially for a 7 string (considering there's another string to factor in to the bite or warm/round sound equation). It's all about the EQ too though. The most over-used, but best answer, is to try out a 7 string at a guitar shop with an amp.

But, I will say, I've tried an Ibanez S7320 with a Peavy (I think it was a smaller Valveking) and I absolutely loved the sounds I was getting.

I'd have to say Engl is definately best, either the Invader 150 or the Se, and definately vaders, i don't know a band that doesn't use them. I'd have to say Engl is definately best, either the Invader 150 or the Se, and definately vaders, i don't know a band that doesn't use them.

i think it'd be the way the cab is constructed that affects how well the low B is re-produced.

i remember a couple places that sold cabs that were "tuned" specifically to the Low detuned crowds.. i'm unsure if it really works or if its a marketing gimmick, but its something to try out anyway.

The thing you gotta remember with cabs is that MOST will be the exact same speaker, just in a slightly different box...
Mesa Boogie always annoyed me by charging $5000 aus for what is basically an A30 celestion speaker with a mesa badge. Marshall charge $2000 for the same, and so on. Sure, cab construction comes into it, but unless you REALLY have uber amounts of money lying around, I don't reccomend getting swept up in "cab dreams"

I do. Excellent construction and great wood make a huge difference.
If cabs were just "same speakers, different boxes" everyone and their dog would use MG cabs.

I know of a few 7 stringers that use Peavey 6505+ and the tone attained from that is pretty sweet. I know of a few 7 stringers that use Peavey 6505+ and the tone attained from that is pretty sweet.
