Like I said I really like mine. With the right tubes in the pre-amp it can sound great.

What type of music are you going to be playing?

I play in a horror metal band, we play a lot of drop b, I would ideally like quite a harmonic bassy tone, but with a smooth lead sound. I like an amp that can push a fair bit of air too, if you know what I mean.

Yeah my prog band is similar to a Mastadon type sound. Drop C and my DSL works great for it. notes stay pretty defined even in low tunings.

Out of the 2 amp originally listed, the Blackstar.

I've used a number of the a series amps (100 el35, 6l6, 200, 100) live and they've always sounded great. And they're built to last!

The JCM2000 very nice it have has lots of punch, and it still cuts through the mix. I like it much better than the Blackstar series 1 amps I have played

Out of the two originally listed, I'd go with Laney. Very versatile and hard to beat for the price.

Yet a 5150 and a BC Rich Warlock wouldn't exactly inspire me to play country or rockabilly, nor would I say that some hollow-body Gretsch into a Twin Reverb would make a particularly convenient set-up for 80s thrash metal.

If TS wants a new amp, just let him get one.
Personally I've had it before that my gear kind of limits my playing/inspiration, because it just doesn't sound the way I want. And I don't feel particularly inspired or comfortable playing something that doesn't want to do what I want from it.

while technically you might be able to play anything on any guitar and amp, it sure as heck makes it a whole lot easier if it's a suitable guitar and amp

If the problem is that he's not getting the sound he wants, yes, getting a different high gain amp will solve his problems.

By restrictive he means in versatility of the amp, not in inspiration for playing. Even then, having a good tone helps out with inspiration, I've found.

None of the amps (the Ironheart is the exception) listed sound like a 6260 at all. They are high gain, that's about it. It's like saying an Audi R8 is almost the same as Dodge Viper.


TS, for what it's worth, I think the DSL would be a heck of an amp. I would still like to own one some day.
