Amp advice

I need a new amp. I need something that's powerful enough to play in a band that's still clean at high volumes. I play mainly hard rock and some metal. Have a look at my covers on Youtube to see what sort of tones I like to get and what would suit my style the best. Thank you!

Thanks, I was thinking Blackstar already. How will that work with my 'Eruption' tone? (see video) By the way doesn't Hetfield use Randall or is Kirk the only one?

Good reliable amps:
http://peavey.com/products/index.cf...%C2%AE%20Series

THe 110 is loud enough to play in most live applications.
Plus has a Line out for going direct to P.A.

Speaking of Direct to P.A. You should give it a try with some of the newer Modelling units.
Most are designed to do both Direct to P.A. while simultaneously going to an amp.

3 of the best I can think of:
Digitech RP355/RP500 series
Fender Mustang Floor (this IS a real Fender amp, just without the Speaker)
POD HD300/400/500 series

You could bring any sound you wanted. Any volume.
I use mine direct to P.A. and don't even bring an Amp anymore.
