Its that time again folks!
I play modern heavy metal think Lamb of God, Black Dahlia Murder, As I Lay Dying, All Shall Perish that kind of stuff. I would like a really killer solo tone which would be great if I could achieve it through the amp but I can always buy a reverb pedal down the track. A nice clean channel would be appreciated as I occasionaly play Opeth and some older In Flames. I play in my bedroom most of the time but will be looking for a band soon and will have no problems finding one.

Here are some options I have been presented with.

ENGL Screamer + ENGL 4x12 with V30's - $1500
Mesa Tremoverb head + ENGL 2x12 - $2200
Engl Thunder + ENGL 2x12 - $1350
Peavey 6505 combo - $1750
Randall RM100 *xtc, treadplate, blackface* + ENGL 2x12 - $2000

I'd say you have a decision to make, son.

Seriously though it sucks how expensive gear is anywhere BUT america, huh.

Fuck the valveking, he's looking for a REAL amp.
The valveking is a good amp, but it's not in the range of the others listed.

Yeah haha not interested in Valveking 212... at all **** spending $400 on speakers, $200 on tubes and still having a pretty average amp :p.
JSX series, yeah for sure!
But they are pretty damn pricey and there doesn't seem to ever be any on the second hand market .

I'm leaning towards the Screamer and ENGL 4x12.
I've heard that to get a decent tone from the Mesa I would need to have it past 4 and I would only be able to do that once every fortnight so... :s.

Hey man, for curiosity why are you getting a big volume amp if you can only use its full potential every now and then? are you in a band or somethin?

Well I was going to be moving into an apartment which was the whole reason for buying the Krank *25 watts tube*. Now that the share market has ****ed its self and that there is over 18 000 houses for sale in WA it is not a good time to sell a house :p. I mess around with a few bands but don't play guitar with them yet, I do however do vocals for 3 bands. I figure I might as well buy a gig worthy amp whilst I'm still young and don't need to pay rent and food, so thats what I'm doing.

Does anyone know if the ENGL Screamer *only 50 watts* will sound good at gig volumes or will the powertubes oversaturate causing a lack of tightness?
