ok, i really want to get that saturated and crunchy lamb of god kind of a guitar tone, so please recommend me some amplifiers.

i play at my home, so if you're going to recommend me a tube amp, it has to be able to produce crunchy, full sounding tone even at low volumes. i was thinking about the peavey valveking 112, but what do y'all think?
#2
peavey 6505+ 112? should be able to get you there or atleast pretty close
if thats a bit pricey than maybe a peavey vypyr? the valveking isn't too good for saturated sounds
i'd also recommend an OD for pretty much most of the amps you'll be suggested

the vypyr will get you pretty close and will get you pretty close at low volumes
peavey 6505+112 would get you closer but only at higher volumes

wait for the bugera mucician to come out and check that out, its a clone of log's amp

I wouldn't really suggest that, unless he wants to wait until after the first few runs are out, because the Mark IV/Magician is a fair bit more complex than the other amps that Bugera have put out, and theres a pretty good chance that the first run will have some problems because of the complexity of the amp.

I agree, there's a real chance there will be some initial problems. Of course, if you don't mind using the warranty, that's not a big deal.

Vypyr is solid state, right? will it still give me the LoG tone?


the Vypyr 15,30,75 and 100 are solid state. Vypyr 60 and 120 are tube. Yes for home use, they can give u the LOG tone.

well considering they use Mesa Boogie Mard IV's i Suggest Them.

When you get it 2 things to do:

1. Play With the Bubble Wrap
2. Fiddle With the controls.

Good point. I tend to not think about warranties because I typically dont buy new gear
You should be good with a warranty, and the Magician should pretty much nail their tone.

They use Mark Vs
They used to use Mark IVs
To ts you wont find a mark IV or V for even close to $500-600
They run well over $1000 used allthough i recently had a shot at a Mark IV for $1000,
but the seller was kind of shady.
Id get the peavey 6505+112 it will get you close to log tone, even at lower volumes, and its in your price range.

I'd suggest a 6505+ 112. It will get you a good metal tone even at low volumes (the distortion comes from the preamp, not the power amp).

LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)

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.

if you cant get a Mark V or IV then use a 6505+112

$600 isn't going to get you tone that sounds like lamb of god. $600 WILL get you a tone that when you play a LoG riff, it sounds really badass.

but the amps have already been recommended

Well, if money is of no object, and alder body guitar, with a JB in the bridge, in to a Mesa/Boogie Mark series.
But for your amount of money, a peavey 6505 combo will do fine

Lower, they don't recude the volume by as much as people tend to think. You can't run the amp at full power and expect bedroom volume levels
