Hi forum

Recently boiught this guitar http://www.fretmusic.co.uk/Ibanez_AF75-BS_Artcore_Hollow-body_Electric_Guitar.html

Was wondering what sort of amp would be best for a range of sounds, i like playing alot of sloe acousticy music which id want a nice clean sound for, but also a heavy sound, a heavy sound similar to bands like Brand New and Alexisonfire...

Was wondering what amp would be best to get the most of my guitar and to get these sounds, hopefully someone can help

Budget? Around £500 max

Genres? Acousticly clean stuff like Mayer, Bon Iver, City and Colour, but would love to turn it up and play some stuff like Brand New, Alexisonfire, Gallows.

New or Used? Doesnt matter to me tbh, as long as the amps good!

Home or Gig? For home!

Closest City? Southampton UK

Current Gear? NONEEE

If you're wanting to play around with a range of sounds, I'd have thought a modelling amp could be a good match for you. Possibly the Vox Valvetronix range?

I almost never say this because I am more of the "like to hear MY amp" type, but if your just using for home and only personal use, I would get a modeling amp. Typically you wont get the best tone, but a modeling amp and even a multi fx pedal would probably keep you busy happy for a couple years. I know vox makes some modeling amps.

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.

Says you. I'd take my Vypyr Tube over any other amp for $500 any day of the week.
