I haven't tried the vc50, but i'd say the vh100R (going mainly by my gh50L here, i have tried the vh100R before but it's so long ago I'm better relying on my opinion of the GH, which is supposedly the VH100R's dirty channel) is sort of a rock/hard rock/metal amp rather than an out-and-out modern metal amp. hot rod marshally kind of thing (with a nice clean channel).

Alright, cheers Dave, what about the TT100? Was looking at that one too.

no problem

ages since i tried one (so take this with a pinch of salt), but it maybe gets a little more modern and fluid than the vh100r (which is crunchier). but again, i'd say it's probably more of a rock and metal amp than an out-and-out metal amp. Depends on how cheap you get it, basically. if you know you want a modern brootz amp and the laneys are pushing the price of known suitable modern brootz amps (6505 and the like) then pass on the laney. if the laneys are loads cheaper, though, they would work at a pinch (and they do sound pretty good, to be fair, just they're not really only aimed at metal).

as i said, though, it does depend on what you mean by metal, if you mean 80s hot rod marshally metal tones then the laneys would work well for that, arguably better than a 6505.

Finally got my IRT60h on Wednesday...

I can't seem to make it sound bad at all, no matter what setting I randomly dial in.

Safe to say, it is a keeper, and I am now part of the brotherhood

Bask in my presence haha

Greatest quote of all time?
