The trynor and peavey would be great for your southern rock styles, however, they will not do meatl very well at all, even with a pedal.

Maybe a used marshall dsl would work better. It would do everything you want, and if you throw a tube screamer, or similar pedal infront of it, it should do ok metal tones.

Somthing else that may be worth taking a look at, is the jet city jca series. These amps have a lot of gain, and can do metal no problem. What I really like about these amps is that the gain can be dialed back to give you a nice light blues od or southern rock drive. I just bought the 50 watt head, and I've got it sitting on some v30's. I couldt be happier. Its perfect for me because it can cover a wide range of tones, weather I'm jamming with my band, or doing my own thing at home. The 20watt version would probably be more up your alley.

If you like, pm me and I can send you some scratch tracks of my bands new album which I used the jca.


Cheers

Metal is not his priority. I'm sure a high quality pedal would get some passable metal tones for just jamming.

It should take any pedal pretty well, including fuzz. A word of caution is that it might require something a bit expensive in the way of high gain pedals to not get cheesy sounding metal tones. You might be able to cop it if you boost the front end with something like a tubescreamer or even a Boss SD-1 and then run an EQ pedal in the effects loop. Otherwise, you will probably be stuck at 80s crunch without any pedals or even with just a boost.

Yeah that one still exists. I also agree about prices, but it is probably tough for a small shop like that to survive.

The other one is on the ring road. Used to be music land but got bought out by Hobgoblin. Prices are better as it is a chain.
