Will be used at home and mostly for metal.
I'm currently considering the Spider IV 15W.

I wouldn't for metal. Play it all the time at my local guitar store, sounds shit in smaller formats. only after 80W does it sound decent

Peavey vyper is your best bet. And at the price its pretty much a steal for everything that's packed in it.

I have a Roland Cube 15x and it's clean is great and it's metal and metal stack rock, but it's distortion and overdrive is horrible. If you decide on a cube, just spend a little more and get the 20xl. It has built in effects and more sound models.

Haha, is there a reason to dislike it?

well i'm not a huge mesa fan honestly. i just never found anything to be all that "wow" for the stuff i play.

i had read some of the online talk about it and thought maybe it was just a gimmiky thing.

after sitting and playing one for a half hour or so i was impressed. i liked it a lot more than i thought i would. some of the switches seemed useless, but that's always the case for me.

i don't really think it's a br00tz amp, a lot of UGers will expect that out of it based on the nameplate. as with most amps (that don't read "Peters" on the front) the gain got real fizzy past 3:00. i'd probably never have it that high though.

and blue lights are very cool.

Ahh that'd make sense. The reason I like the TransAtlantic 15 (and the concept of the 30) is because of the versatility they managed to squeeze into a lunch box amp. I think its got great tone and good features.

I think its as much a "feel" amp as it is a amp for the crunch sound. The only thing that really irked me was the lack of a mid control as well as the lack of a FX loop (for the TA15).

If the TA15 had an FX loop and mid controls, I've have bought one to accompany my MkV.

Also, yes, blue lights are sweet... especially when its emanating from inside the amp.
