Hey guys I've been thinking about upgrading my amp.

Budget? - I would say at most $350-$400

Genres? - I enjoy playing Metal and classic rock. I listen to Metallica, Megadeth, BLS, Gus G, Page, Jeff Waters, Cantrell, Iommi..etc etc...I would like it to have somewhat a nice clean tone.

New or Used? - No preference.

Home or Gig? - jamming

Closest City? - Los Angeles.

Current Gear? - I have a Schecter Damien with Emgs 81/85 Active Pickups...The amp im using now is a peavey vypyr 30.

any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

What models do you normally use on the Vyper? That should help us narrow it down so we know what you already like.
Gibson Les Paul Studio
Highway One Telecaster
Dean Evo
Mesa F-50
Laney GH50L
Vox AC30 C2
Ampeg V2

Peavey 6505+ 112 combo will do all those nicely.
Ibanez RGT6 EXFX
Fender American Stratocaster
Epiphone Slash Goldtop Les Paul
Carvin DC-135
Washburn G-5V
Taylor 214CEG

EVH 5150 III
Peavey 6505+
Line 6 Flextone III

I'd stretch your budget to $500 and get this:

There is also a Line 6 Vetta 2 on there. There is undoubtedly more if you look as that is a big market. Otherwise, look at the 6505+112 as stated or maybe upgrade to a Vypyr 60.


PS: Really nice OP. Thanks,

A Mesa?

You're kidding right? It is made far better and will probably outlast most of the crap that is out there today in the sub $1,000 range including the Valvekings, Vypyrs, Windors, Jet City, Blackstars, etc.


But yeah, that is just a head - he would still need a cab. I was just trying to make a point.
