Just found out I'll be gigging a bit at my school, I could use an amp.

I'd like it to be a 75W amp, of mid-range value and price.Doesn't need to be a marshall.. not a Line 6..

I need a few channels on it, specifically a good clean and distortion, so I can use my pedals. Also needs to work with a footswitch.

My playing style that I hope to achieve is good distortion, but crisp. I play Dream Theater, Rush, Megadeth, System of a Down, Firewind.. some other things. But mostly Prog, Prog metal, and other kinds of metal.


Any suggestions?

you won't need more than 30 watts, 75 is overkill, IMO. the Valvetronix series is a pretty good bang for the buck, and one is more geared towards metal IIRC.

Go for a Marshall 50 watt it has plenty of power and really good cleans and distortion. I have a valvestate 50 watt and it sounds great for metal or clean sounds

What exactly is your price range?


I'm really not sure. Around $600?

What about Peavey Vypyrs?

I already have a 30, its way too small.

which amp? solid state or tube? Vox makes a 50 watt as well, but i really think 30 should be enough. you can always mic it up.
