I have always been told that modeling amps are best for the price I want (around $500 AUD) but what about getting an all around good amp with a Zoom G1/G2. I was looking at a Randall RG75 ($500) or a Randall RG40R ($400) and a Zoom G2 ($140) instead of a cube 60 or Peavey Vypyr 30.

Should I do this?

Modelling amps are nice for beginners and for practising at bedroom volumes, portability etc.

If you want to perform, or be able to sound amazing at high volumes...a tube amp is the way to go. You should probably save up a bit more for a nice head + 2x12 cab.

Once again people do not realize that Australia Fails. The cheapest cab/head you can get is an Epiphone valve junior with a 112 cab which will sitll cost $500 or a Behringer head/412 cab for $600.

I play mainly metal and I don't gig.

Im partial to Randall...
Brutal metal sound.

Did you check out youtube clips of the amps to get an idea of what they all sounds like? (assuming you haven't played them all in store.)

Get a Roland Cube then, the 15W or the 30W. Great practice amps for that style of music. I dunno how much they go for in Aus but they're good value over here.

I can afford the cube 60. That is $450.

There are like no youtube clips of the RG75 because the one I am looking at is an early model and not many people have it. I will look at the Cube 60 and the RG40R.

You get what you pay for. I thought my first modeling amp was cool until i got a pod xtl.

I am going to say the Randall, those things are good for metal, but in a close second would be the cube 60
