How does studio Pre or Quad pre stack up against F-series?

Post by mwrenne » Sat Jul 23, 2016 12:01 pm

I just posted another question a moment ago, but I am so frustrated with guitar amps right now.

basically found my holy grail high gain tone with the Mesa Boogie F-100, Gain at 100%, Volume at 70-80% , I play heavy crusty punk no downtuning, no chugga chugga palm mutes just a mix of insane-o fast power chords and Black Sabbath inspired doom and gloom riffs.

I have a lot of technical problems with this amp, and I am really trying to decide if its worth the headache. I managed to score a really nice 295 power amp for almost nothing that I am using for my stereo.

Does anyone have a Studio Pre and a F-50 or 100? Any comparisons between the high gain for what I do?

Thank you,
