Here's the situation:::

I'm gonna be in a metal band that has influences of:

Annihilator, BLS, Metallica, Pantera, BFMV, Slipknot, LOG, e.c.t

Playing a Jackson RR3 - CS with stock pickups


What would be a good amp for this style of play?
at a good price? & that is GiG proof?
that wont cost an arm and a leg?

The Vypyr 75 works great. If you want a tube amp a B52 AT-112 is great too.
Gear:
Ibanez RG570 circa 1993
Ibanez S2020XAV
Carvin DC127
EVH 5153 50w
Orange PPC112
AxeFX II

Yes, I would do second hand

price: £200 - 500,

Location: uk


I'm going to offer suggetions in the 500GBP area, because 200-300GBP won't get you much.

You could find many, many amps if you go used on Ebay.

A Bugera 6260, Carvin Legacy, Line 6 Flextone, Peavey Vypyr, Peavey Bandit, Roland Cube, Ampeg 140C, Marshall JCM900, Mesa DC3, Peavey 5150/6505, Peavey XXX, Peavey Ultra, Peavey VTM, and finally a Peavey Butcher could all do what you want and all in your price range if you go used.

Street prices might be diffrent there then in the Uinted States/Canada.

for £500 you have a wide selection of laneys, peavey valveking 112 and 212, peavey classic 30, blackstar ht-5, blackheart handsome devil, orange ad5, huges and kettner 25th aniversary and a randall rg-50

edit: for a little more you could an orange tiny terror or marshall haze and then with the used market your selection is even greater

the B-52 is discontinued , Blackstar HT-5 doesn't do gigs , Bugera and Randall are good choices for metal, Bugera sounds better but has more reliability problems, Valveking doesn't do metal without mods and Randall sounds good and has some problems too but less than the bugera. They are both made in china.

Marshalls and Peaveys are out of your budget, except used I think.

bugera 333XL 212
its great and its cleans sound killer, its all tubes too so its LOUD.

for modeling amps i heard cubes can do great metal or maybe the VOX VT-XL series? I dunno never tried any of those two.

The Bugera 333XL 212 looks like a great amp, what cab / cabs would be good to complement its sound???

Peavey Bandit



+1. Great amp. Solid state, though.

If only I were the only one at home right now. I don't need my parents asking who Mr. Wiggles is.

Bugera 333xl is just the 3 channel version of the 6262 i think, so if you wanna save 50 bucks take the 6262.

The 333XL and 6262 are completely different amps...


333 models are clones of the Peavey XXX/JSX/Ultra amps

6262 models are clones of the 5150/6505 amps

Well the Peavey Windsor stack was on sale for 450 USD a while ago but the head is still only 250 USD and buy whatever cab you please. The Windsor is supposed to be a Plexi type of amp, but I've heard it do heavy stuff with pedals

yeah the windsor can do metal if you use a pedal to boost it. Stay away from the Windsor cab though.
