Ok so im looking in to a new amp. Ive come down to some diffrent ones.

Bugera V22 22W
Black Heart little giant head
VOX Ac4tv head or combo

I play blues and rock. Like Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, and Zeppelin

Recomend me another amp if theres a better one out there

-Thanks

Vox AC4 would be a really good purchase, or maybe even a marshall class 5 with a rothwell heartbreaker

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

well i know personally that the blackheart can do those just fine, no prob. an OD pedal of some sort will make it a lot easier seeing it's a single channel amp.

but yea, great amp, i loved mine but had to part with it as it was a temporary replacement until my Randall RM50 got out of the shop.

Not to steal your thread, but are the Little Giant and the Ac4tv loud enough to be used with a band?

The only amp on that list that I know is the AC4, and it's a good amp. Not to disregard your taste in amps, but you mentioned Eric Clapton, Hendrix, and Zeppelin. Hendrix played marshall, I'm pretty sure Page did too, and Clapton played soldanos which are pretty similar to marshalls. You might want to check them out too.

I was in a nu-metal band when I was 15. I hated the top 3 strings (G,B, and E). I wondered why guitars even had them.

the little giant is loud enough for a band in a club or just jamming, but if you plan on playing clubs or bigger venues, it'll need to be mic'd up so you won't struggle to keep up. you won't hear your cleans very well unless you're drummer is playing lightly, just so you know.

I agree with the Blackheart suggestion... it probably won't nail the tones dead on the head, but its versatile enough that you can get fairly close to all those tones.

If you can spare the cash, get the Handsome Devil for more headroom and control over your tone.

I never see any Blackhearts when I go to GC but it is a good recommendation. While you are there check out the Bugera 1960, Vox Night Train, Egnator Rebel 30, Blackstar HT5, Marshall Haze and the like. Blues Jr, Classic 30 and Valvekings too.

Also look at used amps.

The Night Train, Valve Jr (with mods) and Classic 30 would be nice too.

See if you can demo the Bugera... kind of like a Hot Rod deluxe with decent overdrive.
