I'm planning of buying one on Saturday second hand for £420.00 now I know I've had a thread on this before but I really don't want to be blowing that sort of money on something rubbish! So any advice on this amp would be great
I'm playing it for metal/hard rock
Will be gigging (alot)
Will be running a boss me 70 through it
With a vintage sg
Thanks

They are good hard rock amps, but need a boost to get a good metal tone out of them.

2013 G&L ASAT Deluxe
2009 Epiphone G-400 (SH-4)
Marshall JCM2000 DSL100

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.

Its too much even if the cab is included IMO
The head goes for around the 200 mark sometimes even less... and i've seen the head and cab for 300..
I'd just get one for cheaper on ebay and get a decent marshall 1936/1960 cab or something since the head itself isnt bad but peavey cabs are usally pretty bad speakerwise. I deffo think if you can afford the 420 you'd be better getting the head seperate and getting a better cab. just my opinion

yeah that was my feeling, too. if you can get the head on its own it might be cheap enough to also budget for a better cab.

Not sure of the exchange rate, but I picked this one up for $300.00 us...

Not a Metal Amp at all.. but I play blues so it's great for me...

No reverb is about the only downfall, and a pedal fixes that... I'm quite happy with mine..

Well in the uk you can pick up beat up 1960s left, right and centre for around 200... and you can pick up windsors for under 200 if you watch ebay so.. yea i rest my cast.

The Windsor is basically a JCM800 clone. You can mod it to JCM800 or Plexi specs pretty easily.

They are a great value for the price, but they are aren't really designed to do metal at all. You can always get there with a boost, but it's always best to have the right tools for the job from the get go.
