I'm looking for an amp for around $800-1500 probably to be bought used..

What amp in that range could i get that would allow me to get the same tones as: Obscura, Necrophagist, Death, and maybe some Opeth (i know not tech death but still)

Edit: and i know about Engls but even used they are too expensive for me.

And if you've seen my other thread i was looking at buying a Peavey JSX- would that be able to handle those tones?

Opeth uses the Laney GH100L or the VH100R. Also look at Laney's other high gain amps like the TT series.
Fender 1996 Floyd Rose Standard Stratocaster
Epiphone SG G-400

Laney TT50-112

Ibanez Weeping Demon
Marshall RG-1 Regenerator

Check out which amplifiers your favorite bands are using, and try them out. If you like it, buy it, and play the hell out of it!

i agree.

TS, you've been posting a lot of these threads lately. Don't let us decide for you. you HAVE to try them out yourself. Maybe post 1 last thread here before you go down with a purchase just to sort of 'verify' with everyone else.

Thanks a lot for the help everyone

That's a pretty darn good deal to me...but I don't live in the US so I can't compare.

Did you buy from klintner? If so, youre the one who outbid me by $10 at the last minute... damn you! only kidding. Hows the amp?

I would go for the mesa cabinet...my XXX sounds godly with it. That Marshall cab would be decent too...maybe try to talk him down a bit. They go for $300 used around here all the time. Otherwise....look into Framus, Avatar, Vader, Orange, etc. Something with Vintage 30's would be your best bet for metal IMO...not sure what speakers that Marshall has in it.
