So i want to replace my 5150 and jcm800 with a smaller cheaper lower wattage combo but still be able to do country to metal. I dont want a really cold sterile 5150 sound and i dont want to not be able to crank it in the studio.

Would this be suitable? I seem to prefer it to the 6202, its cheap etc, but would it do br00talz, and is there any gain or tone differences between the 2 amps?

..ooh and also would they be more reliable than the older models?

The 6262 does broots very well.

I saw a demo of the v55 on YouTube, dude had a pretty heavy tone coming out of it

I haven't played the 55 yet, but the V22 I would not use for metal.
Have you taken a look at the 6505 112?
'Cold and sterile 5150 sound'? Have you thought about modding your 5150?

Greg what did you send me??
The V22 and V55 can do certain types of metal....if you have a few pedals to go along with it.

I run my V22 with a tube screamer and a 10 band eq, plus I plug it into a 4x12 cab. It can easily do what I would consider "normal" metal. It will not however get you uber brootal newer metal tones. It's a vintage amp so it is voiced that way. It reminds me of a JCm type sound with all the things I use with mine.

Yes but there are no techs near me who will do it..and the cleans will still suck.
