hey, i have a problem deciding between these two amps: mesaboogie nomad 45 and marshall jcm 2000 dsl50 or 100(combo or stack)
i can get the mesa for 500 or best offer. the marshall i havent really looked around for pricing but i know i love that amp,
im unsure about the mesa because i have a specific sound in mind i want to be able to play all of these bands :
zeppelin, hendrix, the stones, floyd, nirvana, GNR and ozzy(randy rhoads)
id be using it for small to medium sized gigs btw.

heres basically what i want:
nice clean channel
nice crunch distortion and high gain
versatile
portable
thats basically it please help me make the decision cuz im lost
thanks alot

The bands you listed have been known for their iconic british sounds, which the Mesa will be pretty far off from. In your case, I'd stick with the Marshall or something similar.
