You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

so its down to the jet cityamp and the peavy viper, which one is best? are there any others?
#13
peavey vyper = solid state with bells and whistles that you dont really need. not to say it's bad but yea, that's the jist of if IMO

jet city= tube amp with no frills just raw power (which is what hard rock is)

tube has much better tone than solid state 90% of the time and this is no exception. even versus the vyper tube, i'd say jet city because it's made by soldano and the amps are based off soldano's and we all know how great soldano is, or atleast their reputation.

ultimately it is up to you but i would pick jet city over peavey vyper any day. especially if your going after the ballsy sound of hard rock.

choose wisely
#15
yeah definitely want a ballsy rock sound, think nightrain from GN'R's appetite for destruction. I just love the sleazy feel of that album.

so for 3-400, the jetcity 1x12 amp is the best choice?
