Bands that you play: Helloween, Stratovarius, Kamelot, Hammerfall, Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden etc. etc. Power Metal mostly...

EDIT: First Act is the LAST guitar I would expect to see UG reccommend.


If it wasn't for the Wal-Mart guitars, you'd probably see more First Act stuff. First Act isn't all that bad.

To answer your question, I'd say a Marshall JCM2000 DSL100 could cover each and everyone of those bands with ease. If you look hard, you can find the head for $600. That would literally be PERFECT for you

First Act custom shop guitars are t3h sexx. Amazing quality. Norma Jean is now endorsing them fully.

do it man, im still astounded by the tone i get get out of this "budget" amp. I took it to an amp convention thing, there was a lot of high end amps (bogner, vht, engl, etc...) and people were floored at the sound of my bugera. Not as good as the uberschalls and special editions.... but for 650 you cant go wrong. Buy it and never look back

Does the 6260 have a better kl33n channel than a 5150? I liked the tone I got from the non-plus/II version better, but I want cleans

the clean channel on the 6262 destroys the "clean" channel on the 5150. I play alot of slightly stoopid, sublime, stuff like that on it to, and it works perfectly. The only thing the 5150 does a little better is classic rock, but that could be fixed with a ts9
