I can't seem to find a simple amp (by simple I mean only clean/distortion settings, with gain drive bass mid treble volume opitions only, none of that extra modeling crap) that would be good for using pedals with? I only want this amp for a good clean tone and use pedals for everything else, can someone please help me out? I play mostly metal and rock (what a suprise ) and have a budget of around £300-£400, and I don't want anything too big either since its just for home/jamming

try out a line 6. They have beautiful clean tones as well as insane distortion really good all round, but you better try before you buy because as I'm sure you've heard a thousand times its all about personal opinion. Good luck finding one mate!

No idea where that is, but a quick Google search tells me South West England in which case.

Or go used on eBay or a Classifieds. Shame you can't try them however, maybe YouTube clips would suffice?

I live around there man. It's worth making a trip to Mansons in Exeter or DV247 in Bristol. It'll be a bit of a drive, but you'll get to try a load of amps.
As for amp recommendations, I'd say an Egnater Rebel or maybe a secondhand Marshall Vintage Modern.
Amps:
Mesa Boogie Rect-O-Verb
Laney VC15
Cabs:
2x Blackheart 1x12
Guitar:
PRS SE Soapbar II
Pedalboard:
Line 6 M13, Zvex Fuzz Factory, Digitech Synth Wah, Boss SD-1, Biyang OD-8 (Tubescreamer Clone)
Band:

+10000000 on the cool to visit Mansuns in Exeter. I live in Somerset (my brother lives in Poole incidently) and I would defiently make the trip. Fantastic shop and staff. Plus they have practice booths where you can take a guitar/amp/pedal into and play without lots of 14yr old metalheads watching you like a hawk.

is there any reason why you want to do it that way round? most people playing metal and rock get an amp aimed at those tones. I mean at £400 you could get a traynor ycv50b or something like that.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
