Looking for a new amp. I'll start with saying price isn't really limited just not looking to spend like 3000. I need an amp with a straight in your face overdrive, pretty much a raw, powerful tone. That's what's most important, cleans I'm just looking for clean don't need to be anything special.

Gibson Faded V (Dimarzio EVO(B) and GFS Hot Liverpool(N) coiltap in neck)

I have a variety of pedals PM if you have to know.

Looking for a new head!

Peavey 6505+, Mesa Dual rectifier, Krank rev+, Randall V2, Randall MTS 100, Engl Fireball, Framus Cobra, Marshall JCM800, or a Madison Divinity II. These are the list of the most in your face amps that tend to sell for under 3,000. If price ism't a factor i myself would go with one of the first two amps i listed. Good luck and i hope you get an amazing amp i wish i was working at the moment so i would have the cash to buy one of these bad boys.

Marshall TSL100. Awesome amp.
Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

Peavey 6505, Mesa double or triple rectifier, or an ENGL Powerball 100. That's the best of the best for what you want

i would go with the mark v just because i've heard the 6505+ clean channel is horrible. just what i heard though. nothing beats a mesa.

If I could buy any amp for under $3000, I would buy a Mesa Mark V head and get a custom 2x12.
