Heylo GG&A!
I found this ad roaming around the Toronto Kijiji site; it's been around for quite a while, as the seller keeps re-posting it. The price was set at $300, then $250 and now, $200.
Link- http://toronto.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-sell-musical-instruments-Peavey-Made-In-the-USA-Supreme-head-W0QQAdIdZ105178125

My question: Yay or nay? (For me )

I play alt-rock (Three Days Grace, Billy Talent), pop punk (My Chemical Romance) and some classic rock (AC/DC, GNR and Led Zep). Would this amp be good for that crunch, Marshall-ly sound, or even for a gritty, yet smooth (yeah, that makes no sense) tone? Think Highway-to-Hell-yet-Sweet-Child-'O-Mine sound.

Does anyone own this amp? If yes, then let me know if it can do cleans as well as dirty overdrive.

Thanks.

EDIT: Remember, the prices are in CAD. So the Peavey Supreme head would be around $160 USD.

It will be better than your current amp, but a Traynor blue or Peavey classic 30 with boost would probably be the best for your style if you can save up that much.

For anymore than $200 and I would say no. Buts its not a bad deal for $200, so if it sounds like your cup of tea, go for it. I've never heard anything really great about the tube\solid state hybrids though.

Thanks guys. Its just a solid state (Transtube), so I wouldn't expect much from it. Yeah, youtube is being a b*itch, so I can't really hear how it sounds.
If someone has any experience with this amp, feel free to help out (READ: Please help. Help. Do it. *poke* HELP!).

That looks pretty good, 'cept for the price. At my local Long and McQuade, the Traynor YCW80Q goes for about $800 CDN (around $652 USD). So, I'll look into that.

Seems old, but it's probably just the picture quality.

Btw, how's this?

Scroll down, it's the second news thing, the JCM 900. Only $550 CAD ($450 USD).
Seems pretty good.

C'mon, no one can help me?
Someone must own or has even played this amp before.
Sorry for the double post, but I really need help.

Peavey Supreme: Decent solid state head for very high gain, but probably has a bit too much gain for your styles.

How much is a Marshall DSL401 where you live? I know Ray Toro uses the head version in studio and live, and I'm pretty sure Three Days Grace use either them or JCM900s.

So try for that JCM900 also.

Ah. I see. Thanks for letting me know about the Peavey.
Good news: I found a used DSL401 http://toronto.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-sell-musical-instruments-Marshall-DSL401-40-Watt-All-Tube-Combo-W0QQAdIdZ68897423
It's an old ad, but I'll see if the poster is still selling. Aren't these expensive though?

Buying new sucks here. ):

If your going to buy a DSL than look at the heads as there a lot better than the combo's.

Yeah, so I heard.
www.theguitarshop.ca is selling one for $550 CAD apparently, I'll go see if I could get that.
But I don't want to be luggin around a head and a cab everywhere (school, friends' houses, etc). So unless someone knows of an extremely portable cabinet, I think I'll stick with a combo (maybe the Traynor Blue) unless I get a better deal.

Go for that JCM900.

maybe a small 1x12/2x12 cab? Im not a fan of the jcm 900's but each to his own I guess.

I personally find a head and a 1x12 or 2x12 easier to carry than a combo, because they are much lighter. And the DSL combos are good once their speakers are swapped.

But you might want to look into a Traynor because they're much better value there.
