Hey all!
Its my birthday/christmas coming up , and was wondering what combo amps you would reccomend under £150?
I've looked at the VOX VT30 and Line 6 Spider 3 30 watt.
What would you suggest Please feel free to suggest others!

By the way! I play mainly metal , so Metallica , Lamb of God etc etc
Cheers!

the Peavey VYPYR 30W is very nice for metal and anything else, so get this. in america, it is $200 with the footswitch, the Sanpera I. if you do get it, read the manual for both or else it will be really confusing...

also check out the roland cube 30x. I haven't tried the vypyr yet (and it's bound to be worth a try), nor the newest version of the voxes (ditto the vypyr), but the cube 30 is better for metal than the older vox valvetronixes and the spiders, in my opinion.

obviously try them all out if you can find them.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

You'll get an awful lot of people telling you not to get the Spider.

And really, it's not what we would pick its what sounds best to you. Go and try them out if you can.
I've exposed your lies, Mr. Citizen Erased. This will give me all the peace and joy in the world. The truth will unwind and scrape away because I don't love you and never did - so please:

exactly. i mean, if i had that budget and wanted to play those styles of music, i'd be hitting the music shops to try the ones I haven't tried yet, before anything else

I tried out my music teachers Peavey amp yesterday , and it was ok , but it didn't seem so have a 'metal' enough tone even with tweaking. Im not sure whether this is the amp or the whole range or what but it wasn't the sound im after.

I find a 65 watt Fender amp for the right price range :

Now it seems a bit weird that a 65 watter is going for 150 pounds. So im skeptical about quality , has anyone got this amp and could help me out?

Cheers!


P.S , VOX are good for metal right?

Peavey Vypyr 30 - http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/77819

What would YOU pick if you played my style of music

Thanks very much!



I would definitely go for a vypyr, i own the 75w version and it can handle metal very very well! It also does a ton of other stuff.

In my opinion, the peavey isn't a nice amp to work with.
I liked the Vox but not sure about it's metal capacity.
Cube's are always a good idea though, best budget amps IMO. That or the newer set of Marshall MG's. Before anyone fires up the flames watch this. Chappers certainly gives it a work through there and it holds up damn well to the abuse.

do you know how much ****ing post equing was done to polish that turd?

Yes they aren't as horrible as people say, but they can't do stand-alone metal without sounding like shoving a spoon up a cats ass.

Try the Roland, I've heard them do great things.

And as for the vyper, spend about 20 minutes of your life reading the manual and you will get tones you can't even imagine, you can expect to know how to get great tones in 5 mins without knowing what every knob does.
