I have a 5000$ budget. Ive seen some amps in the metal thread (its pretty handy ^.^), and ive come out with these ones


-ENGL Invader 150 E640 - very nice, liked it a lot
-Marshall DSL 100 - didnt really like it
-MesaBoogie Triple Rectifier + boost pedal - its pretty good
-Peavey 3120 - Loved it
-Peavey 6505+ loved it even more


Ill be testing all of these amps, but first, i wanna hear opinions from you UGers, which would be the best amp to play stuff like melodeath metal / trash metal (bands like Chidren of Bodom, Kalmah, Norther, Before the Dawn, Equilibrium, Trivium, ... Basically, i wanted to nail a tone that fits perfectly in melodeath trash metal.

Well......
You did say you loved the 6505+ the most.
What does it matter what we think? You have to be your own person.
#3
I think the 6505 would be about right
Gibson SG Standard
Ibanez S2170FB
Peavey JSX
Marshall 1960A

Try out a Framus Cobra, Bogner Uberschall, Soldano SLO100/Decatone, Engle Invader.
...

i'd say go with 6505, i have a peavey modeling amp, and the 6505 is the ****

edit: also, the music i play is similar to what you posted, so ik from experience that it sounds good

I just noticed your guitars. They WILL sound heavenly through even a standard Hiwatt head if you pair it with the right cab(s). But if you really want the best sound, talk to Hiwatt direct about custom jobs and they'll start calling you 'Sir' in very quick time.
