I am looking for a new amp. My budget would be a max of $600. New, not used. I live in western Mass in a small town called Adams. I currently have a Line 6 Spider lV 75w amp that isn't that great and is falling apart. I need a new amp that I can use for practicing at home and be able to use it for gigs. I intend to play mostly metal core, some heavy metal, and post hardcore. So I am looking for something with clean tone and something with a lot of gain. Thanks.

Out of those listed, Bugera 6262 is comparable to the Peavey 6505, which is a staple amp in the metalcore scene. I've heard of some bands using Genz Benz, as well as Marshall but I know the Marshall's are voiced differently, but Marshall's do have a mean, crispy clean crunch to them.

That is no way to select an amp.

Your current thread will devolve into a long lists of what amps other UGers are looking for, like what 311 says.

Ah my bad, I meant to put a +1 to your comment before I went on and on... the chocolate dessert is making me sleepy. Edited.
