Heyy, I want a new amp, my current is a Marshall AVT150X, I don't view it as particularly bad, i've just had it for a while and want something to compliment my tone more..

My dad said I can't be that choosy cause he wants to get me one around the xmas period, i'd also be part-exing my current amp to go towards this newer amp, I think we might be going for used as it's also a cheaper option,
but does anyone have any ideas on what i should get? :]

I play a lot of metal, and i like my cleans aswell, so the amp has to cope with that well, and i also need an amp with ok reverb on it, as i do not possess a reverb effect pedal, so that effect would just be handy!

I'm gonna guess at my budget to be around £500..


cheers :]

used amp is definitely an option
and, well.. to be honest, home AND band use, gig use too if possible, although 9 times out of 10 we mic up the amps so it shouldn't be too bad..

Would you need the amp for band rehearsals or gigs?

+1 for Jet city. I have to 20 watt head and it rocks, but to get some better headroom at decent levels I would say go for the 50 watter. I'm not sure if it has reverb (I know the 20 watt combo does) but it has an effects loop and you could probably just save up a bit of dough and get a decent reverb pedal used

I have a Peavey 6505+ 112 (60 W tube) and love it, you can also try the jet city amps and this http://www.thomann.de/gb/randall_t2c.htm. Hope I helped you.

I second the 6505+ 112. It's horrendously loud, sounds really good, and has more gain than I know what to do with.

Yeah, 6505 combo seems like it would work well for you.

You might also want to look into a used Engl Screamer combo, or do what I did and get a used Laney GH50L and a used Framus 2x12". Both are better for lower-gain tones than the 6505. But if metal is what you want, the 6505 will be great for you.

Both excellent alternatives to the 6505, especially if you're into more of a chunky 'very heavy rock' sound rather than teh br00tz
