I really love the sound of the ENGL Fireball and the famous Mesa/Boogie dual rectifier. Those two amps are a great example of the Modern high-gain distortion I love.
hmmm, yeah this is a difficult one in all honesty, there are also so many factors. some that depend on the instrument and it's pickups as well.
Really hard to vote...
a metalcore distortion but I also like a really clean sound with some delay and chorus because it represents another face from my music :)
I refuse to turn up my gain knob past 12 o'clock. The gain starts,to make your tone really fizzy at that point.
