Post A little amp advice
Okay, I need some help. I am in the market for a new amp. My co-guitarist in my band now has a Mesa Triple Rec. I've played around with it a lot, and I've never really been that happy with the sound I've got out of it, and I don't plan on dishing out the large amounts of cash for something I won't be completely happy with.

So recently I decided to look around at my other options, and I've narrowed my choices down, and I'm kind looking at Peavey. From what I've read, the amps Peavey puts out are pretty damn good for the money you spend on them. More specifically, I've been looking at the 5150, 6505 (maybe the 6505+, not sure yet), and the JSX. I guess you would classify the band I'm in as metal, and I play metal stuff a lot, as well as Gilbert-esque stuff (what I can play anyway), and Satriani. I love shred stuff, it's by far my favorite thing to play/listen to.

Basically, what I'm saying is, I play stuff other than metal and I want something that can do more than JUST metal. So what do you guys think?

Laney GH50L or 100L. Put high-gain JJ E34L's in it and boost with a tube screamer.

- ENGL Tube amps
- Orange Rocker Series
- Marshall VM series

Are all versatile amps that do Metal/Rock and they will sound different then a mesa.

Orange amps seems to become very popular on this board :wink:

Also check out:
- Blackstar One series
- Cornford handwired series

Hmmm... I'll definately look into those.

Also I suppose i should add a few more details.

I play an Ibanez S470DXQM, and a Xiphos. I will also add that I'm not looking to spend a TON of money, which again, is why Peavey interested me in the first place. Some bands I like are Opeth, Trivium, Lamb of God, All That Remains, Children of Bodom, in no specific order.

Blackstar Series One 100 is the way to go, covers all music styles well so I've read, and is less money than the Peavey.

Get the blackstar 100 or the Orange Rockerverb 50!

I tried a lot of amps recently and they were the two that stood out for me :)
