Lately i've been considering buying a new guitar head to record with because my current one just isn't cutting it. I've been toying around with a Marshall JCM 2000 which has pretty good distortion and superb clean tone and a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier that has excellent distortion and pretty descent clean tone. I've been leaning more toward the Boogie because the distortion is like no other for the type of music I play which is gothic oriented metal that can be compared to the likes of Tool, A Perfect Circle, Lacuna Coil, Unearth, and Moonspell. I would just like to get some recommendations that will possibly help me make up my mind because both heads are great but it's almost like choosing a favorite child. Also if there are any other companies that you can recommend or maybe other distortion recording alternatives than please let me know!
