I'm trying to find an amp thats in a similar vain to a Mesa Boogie, that kind of massive, tight and smoothness
but for far less then they cost over here (UK) £2,000 is a bit much atm

not looking for a clone here, just something a bit similar, for about £1,000-£1,500 at most

a good lush clean channel would be a plus too

EDIT: quite high gain really, looking Dream Theater/Metallica kinda levels

Laneys are British voiced. Splawns are basically on hot-rodded Marshalls, ergo, British-voiced.

Yeah. But he says he wants a Mesa or similar. The early Metallica stuff (KEA, RTL) was with a JCM800, but they also used a ProCo Rat for a lot of distortion. For MOP, they used a Mesa preamp into a JCM800.
