other bands would be Parkway drive, protest the hero blessthefall kinda stuff but i would like a pretty decent clean channel
definately willing to go used
I've thought of Peavey 5150/6505 used peavey xxx bugera 6262/333xl Marshall JVM( i know there not liked round here but im quite fond of them) which would be the most obvious suggestions just want a few more to widen my search and give me more amps to

If you want peoples's ears to fall off, you can get a Bugera 333XL.

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

peoples ears falling off is now a good thing?
i liked the fact it had a built in noise gate but im not sure if i'd be able to try one:/

A Marshall DSL401 combo can be had for about £600. Orange Thunder 30? ENGL Thunder 50 combo? Marshall 2266C Vintage Modern 50W combo? VOX AC30C2? All of those can be had for between £600 and £700.

Used is probably your best bet - getting your hands on a Marshall stack is the way to go. Nothing that I've included in that list would be loud enough to fill a proper hall or club or whatever... but if you have a decent PA system available then it wouldn't be as much of an issue.

If you already had a cab, that would make things easier.
Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

"And give a man an amplifier and a synthesizer, and he doesn't become whoever, you know. He doesn't become us."

Holy crap, check this out!

well i'm selling the flextone and getting myself a marshall 1960 cab
(probably might go for a 2x12) so this money is all for the head will have a look at the orange and the Engl but probably need more gain than the other amps had to offer

I'm not sure what a Laney VH100R goes for over there but if you can find one for that price it might be worth a look at.
