ok so tomorrow i'm going down to my guitar store to look at these amps. i'm wanting something that does everything, from brutal to crispy clean. Are there any others i should have a look at whilst i'm there?? BTW this is the store so they may not have some stuff that you suggest, and my budget is £2500 www.gak.co.uk

Mesa Dual Recitfier
Mesa MkV
ENGL Powerball
ENGL Savage
Marshall JVM410H

cheers

EDIT:£2500 with the cab as well

I think you might want to take the Marshall of your list, i've played it and i hated it.

well honestly the JVM is probably the most versatile but the gain can be a bit fizzy and unfocused but with an OD it tightens up pretty good i'm a sucker for Engl but since you want versatility my vote goes to the JVM

Your local shop may not be dealers, but for that price you could afford a diamond half stack - DO IT! NOW!!!


Good thinking 2500 pounds is a good stack of cash i've always wanted to play a Diamond myself but it's not gonna happen anytime soon

Well thats the thing, it does a lot but does none of it well (except maybe cleans). The Mark V on the other hand does just about everything well.

My local dealer is a Diamond Dealer - I've tried the Spitfire, the Phantom and the Spec-Op. The Spitfire is a pretty high gain vintage tone - loved it. The Spec-Op screams, but has a great clean channel. The Phantom screams in a vintage style OR a modern style, and has the same clean channel - nicest amp I've ever played!

I was going to recommend a Mesa/Boogie Road King, but it's a bit out of your price range. But definitely the one to go for if you want something that can do everything
Pedal GAS?
Empress Heavy
ISP Dec of some sort
Keeley Katana
TC Corona/Vortex/Dreamscape

i can't go over my budget at all, £2500 is the max and the road king head is £3200

Don't get a Mesa in The UK. Complete rip off.

Engl Blackmore? It won't go at Br00talz as the other Engls though, but neither would the Dual Rectifier.
