I try to get my tone to sound like/ i want a tone like

- Parkway Drive
- Between the Buried and Me
- As i Lay Dying
- Bullet for My Valentine
- As Blood Runs Black
- Children of Bodom
- As Blood Runs Black

and Etc.

Ive been looking into a Peavey Vypyr Tube 120w. Or a Bugera 6262

im open to other options

My price range is probably around $500 (almost absolute max) probably cant go much higher

also im going to be playing shows (small-medium (maybe large but ill probably DI or Mic anyways)venues)

can anyone help?

Thanks in Advance,

Bugera 6262 is a fine choice...I would go with that...do you have a cab?

60w Peavey Vypyr ftw.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard w/ SD Alnico Pro II's
Fender Aerodyne Telecaster & Stratocaster
Marshall JCM 800 4104 combo

yeah we had a one on one convo abotut he peavey vypyr tube. and i tried it at Gutiarcenter and it sounded good. they did nt let me try the 6262 because it was being used for the kign of blues competition, but they reccomended me that one too. and a few others, i reallly cant decide what to get anymore.

the 6262 is being used for blues?

the 6262 is a GREAT amp, the only downside is the random quality control. it might crap out on you, it might not

the dual reverbs kind of suck in my opinion...but for what you want I would probably go with the Bugera or a used Peavey 5150/6505

Oh, then yea, find a used 5150. In NY, that's not going to be easy to do at $500. You may be able to score a bugera 333 for that new.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

not sure about the vypyr..never played one..not a fan of modeling amps however

I bet the 6505+ or a 5150 combo is louder than you're Marshall AVT150...I used to have an AVT150 half stack and wasn't impressed with its power. I would try to find a 5150 combo instead of the Peavey Vypyr 120. Although, since you have already played the Vypyr and know you like it I suppose you should go for that haha

haha i just typed in "5150 combo" its there...yeah they are a little pricey..when you sell your marshall maybe you can make me a deal on my 5150 head? if you have 500+ whatver you get for the marshall you'll definitely have enough
