what is like the perfect practice amp, that would still be able to play over drums, for the genre of metal and thrash? what can give you that vintage distortion but still always be quiet enough for practice? Lets not worry about price range on this one. just doing some research. can this be achievable with tubes? does anyone know if the peavey 6505+ 112 combo is capable of all these requirements?

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

Wait, you want metal and thrash, but a vintage distortion?


Does... not... compute......

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me
Quote by jj1565
maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

personally i have a total of 1x15", 13x12"'s, and 2x10"'s in my room thourhout my different amps and cabs. i can play loud when i want to (think 50 watts dimed), but don't all the time, because that would be silly. so bedroom volume is really a personal term.

if you want tube, you really need 15 watts to keep up with a drummer, more if you want a really clean tone while keeping up with a drummer. if you haven't tried it, dime a 15 watt tube amp. its way louder than you would ever think.

solid state, 30 would be my estimate of what is required to keep up with a drummer, more would probably be ideal for gigging.

for the most versitility, the peavey vypyr. its a digital modeling amp, so the tone is unchanged completely with the volume. they come in all sizes, so you can find your version that fits your version of "bed room" noise. the vypyr tube i would have to say is my favorite, but i think that is a relative obvious favorite.

Yeah, I was wondering about that...

But I've got no clue. My amp right now is a pignose for Christ's sake. Certainly not the BR00T4LZ.

Spider Valve 112. Buttloads easier to carry than the Peaveys. Will hang with a drum kit no problem, but sound good at low volume. I'm not a digital kind of guy, but I have to admit these things sound killer. Ran mine into 4x12 and it did great. That single speaker doesn't do these justice. Might have to go after it with a woodsaw like I did the 5150 combo- haha.

So... you want thrash, but also vintage distortion, and bedroom volumes, but you also want to be heard over a drummer?

no price range?



I can tell this is gonna be good thread.

Bedroom amp - thrash gain - vintage gain...

Honestly I think some orange amps will fit this discription nicely - may need a OD pedal out front depending on how heavy you want to get.

I personally perfer the thunderverbs over the rockerverbs but check them both out.

Dual Terror may be a good option as well (just not sure if it has a combo amp - I know the tiny terror does but not sure about the dual).

Orange Tiny Terror and a tubescreamer/overdrive pedal. It has the potential for thrash, but still with a very vintage and slightly dark/loose feel. It sounds nice at low volumes and is cheap. No clean tone really, though.

no price range?

well he was considering a 6505-112 so we can safely assume $600.

i'll toss in a used soldano astroverb, but you may need another $100 or so.

Couldn't you possibly just plug a modeling multi-effects pedal into a speaker and get any type of tone you wanted? He never said that it had to be a tube amp or anything, and some of the higher dollar pedals sound nice enough for practice at least.
