For a modern metal sound of any kind, this amp is the King. We cover metallica and it can get a nice metallica sound straight off. but if you want a more distorted mudvayne-type sound, then this can deliver. It has every metal sound there is, just fiddle with the 9 band eq system (by the way the 125 is a sweet spot, put it at about 8 at and you're in business)The clean as good as can be expected and the reverb gives it a good deal of character and warmth. it can get very loud without any distortion on both settings. It has all the usual features as you'd expect from a pro amp.one drawback for me, it didn't come with a power lead but i dunno if thats randalls fault or the shop i got it from.If you're after amazing metal tones then this is it. If you're not into metal, then get another amp. maybe the peavey xxx has a better range for rock,
It's the heaviest amp out there, it blows the Mesa Boogies, the Marshalls, the Bogners, and the VHT's out of the water! It's creamy, smooth, clean and heavy crunchy distortion.
This amp super heavy because of the nine-band eq. The gain setting only has to be on 8 to get an extremely heavy tone. Even with the gain knob at a 12 o clock position this amp grinds. I thought that it had an on, off switch for the effects loop.
I picked up this head on scratch and dent, and paired it up with a B-52 4x12 cabinet. I must say that if you play any type of metal, you will love this amp. It gives you some razor sharp distortion and the eq possibilities are endless. I currently play in a Black/Melodic Death metal band and get great tones with my leads and some nice chunky riffs. Match this amp with a nice 400-Watter and you'll be good to go.
This amp is the perfect weapon for hard rock and metal musicians. The distortion is almost unlimited when using the 9 band EQ. From soft mids to sharp treble, it's all a matter of adjusting the EQ to "your sound". If you are like myself and want the crunchiest distortion, this amp is perfect. Very thick, yet tight distortion. I have used this product's competition and I would take the Cyclone over anything else. The clean sound is as good as it's going to get. Plus, it's solid state so the clean channel won't be affected by tube distortion, which can muddy up the clean. From my experience, it's very reliable. Do some homework and you'll see why more and more rock artists use this product. This is the new weapon of choice for metal and it IS a force to be reckoned with.
This amp packs a huge punch, with or without distortion. The clean channel has got nice bass without getting too boomy, and the distortion channel is ridiculously harsh. The distortion is comparable to Mesa Boogie Tripple Recs. It's a great value.
I ordered a Cyclone a couple months ago (at an outstanding price I might add), and this baby rocks. 300 watts plus the 9-band equalizer is sweet. You can dial in any metal tone or make up your own. I use a mega-scoop, that pounds you right in the face. Great for everything from Hendrix to Pantera and in between.
