I need to get an amp for my home studio. I have a $5,000 budget (my grandfather passed away and I was left with life insurance money). But I don't want to spend the entire $5,000.

I play pretty heavy music, but I also would like it to be a bit versatile.
I have a Jim Root Telecaster in the studio, so I was thinking of getting a Super-Sonic 100 with matching cabinet. I've heard those can be used for Metal.

Or an Orange Rockerverb 100 with matching cabinet.

I have a Fender Marcus Miller with a Fender TB-1200 and 810 PRO for recording bass, so I thought having an all Fender set up would be cool.

What made you think that? I don't talk about them very much because I don't have much experience with them but I've never said I don't like them. I'd love a Mark IIC.

For flexibility, and for 5k, you can always buy a great metal amp (mark V) and then a good clean amp. If you're just talking studio use, it's not like you're lugging around extra gear! Another option would be a triaxis, power amp and a cab. And a rack too, I guess

best suggestion this thread. you won't need anything else as this amp can pretty much do it all. i'd also suggest at least getting a POD as you may find that it will make recording easier for times when you can't crank up an amp of just want to get an idea down quick.
