amp stolen upgrade time.

Alright so pretty sure this dickhead drummer I was in a band with for a decent amount of time stole my shitty bugera 333xl( I have yet to hunt him down and kick the shit out of him). It was a good amp but I've been wanting something more. Anyway I play deathmetal deathcore whatever heavy music. Now im considering the go to 6505 but the laney ironheart caught my attention too. Id be going used my budget in the neighborhood of 700-900 at most. thoughts suggestions?

wow man. and from a drummer too? sorry. good thing it was an amp that spurred you to upgrade = happy. opposed to a 1 of a kind amp that your going to regret forever.

well if wattage isnt an issue, the baron snott watts are fairly brutal. these new STIFF amps are also pretty brutal on a budget.

yeah you really cant go wrong with peaveys in that price range. .... ill keep thinking.

arent there new high gain egnaters out now?

If you thought the 333xl was shitty, you probably won't enjoy the 6505 all that much, they've got a very similar overall sound after all. The XXX is in the same ballpark as the 5150 for sure, just a slightly more aggressive sound.

How about the Ampeg VH140c/Crate GX130C?

The Ironheart is pretty awesome imo. You can go wrong w the Peaveys for what you are into though. Id also suggest looking into used Egnater Armageddon or Vengeance and see if you like the tones.

The Ironheart is cool, but it has a very low mid oriented tone that can be a bit flubby if you aren't careful. The Egnater Vengeance is a really cool high gain amp. I feel like it can do some pretty heavy modern metal with hot pickups the gain wicked up a bit and the switch set to tight mode, and it still retains nice touch responsiveness and organic texture. Plus the clean channel is very warm and sparkling, and it can achieve some light overdrive and dirtier cleans. Nothing sterile about it. You might like an overdrive for a boost, regardless of the amp (especially Mesa Boogie or the 6505), just for extra tightness.

I don't know if comparing a Bugera and a high end Peavey makes much sense ... I hated the sound of the Bugera I had, I thought it was a cheap POS but a 5150 (or whatever it's called nowadays) kicks the shit out of it, in my opinion.

I hauled around a 5150 for a few a years and they sound great, especially with a tube screamer out front to tighten it up. I got sick of carrying it though and switched to the 50w krank pro jr. Pretty heavy sound and much better clean than the peavey. Playing a mesa rectifier now which can do pretty much anything.

In conclusion, the following high gain amps sound good and can be had used in your budget.
5150/6505
Krank rev pro jr (whatever its called, its 50watts)
Mesa Rectifier (single/dual/triple)

Im with iKey on the low watt amps. Cause there just as loud and get the job done.

I have a STIFF 20W Dirthead they make a 50w and 100w and all of them are cheaper and hell of alot more durable than the peavy's ever could be. And the sound is twice as crushing then a 6505 could shake a stick at. Cleans are amazing and distoritons are awesome. And made in the USA by good ol Tony Krank.

Let us know what you come up with.

P.S Never trust drummers.
