    What about a marshall dsl 100 for a 7 string amp? Less than half of a Mesa.

    I would suggest the Valvestate line.

    For the "hair today / goon tomorrow" player.

    Instead of a 7 string I would also suggest get the other 3 strings to go with it, buying a beginner bass.

    When these stupid instruments came out I thought: only a guy who cant learn single-string or theory needs a 7 string.

    Is either one, the Lamb of God guy or the Slipknot guy, doing anything unique or revolutionary with another G string?

    Noah!

    What G string???

    7s are typically tuned BEADGBE or AEADGBE... not a string interval lower than a detuned/baritone 6, but a combination of detuned AND standard tuned on the same instrument

    I have a 7 and the 6100 is perfect for them. Channel 3 can get the really low growly tone these guys want and the mid-shift button gives them the mid scoop they all seem to like too.
