I have been going through the run around with guitar center. I originally went in to get a mesa dc series amp head. I played the 100 watt head they had and was kind of unimpressed, but I know that playing a 100 watt a low volumes was not the best picture. Not to mention 100 watts is way more than I need. I was pondering the dc-3, more my style. Then my ability to be patient took over and I ordered an Egnater Rebel 30, but got a call today saying that it was in worse shape than originally said so I cancelled that order. Then today I went in and came out with a Marshall DSL15H (I had a JCM 2000 DSL 100 and loved it, but it was too much and bills needed paid), which in my opinion sounded great, then got home and the footswitch didn't work. For the price, I was happy but I think that there might be a better amp out there for what I am going for.
What amp head best suits my needs?
Genre-blues, classic rock, metal (Mastodon/Baroness-Opeth), clean is good to have but not a fender clean.
Budget-up to $550 USD, do not need a high wattage amp head. Willing to go used, probably will have to be from GC.
I may just end up keeping the Marshall since most of the bands I listen to and emulate have that British-styled amp component to them.
Thanks!

Look for a Laney LC50. Combo version of the GH50L (I think).

There is a Krank 1980 Jr 20watt for $375 on www.guitarcenter.com/used

I have one and it is a truly fantastic amp and it is loud enough to jam with a band if you need to.

I have a DSL100 and I bought the 1980 for easy transport to practice. and it is built solid

I second the laney. I've seen guys use them like a jazz amp. Then turn it up and bust out some metal shit.

Is the laney a combo or an amp head. I need an amp head. I like the sound of the laney. Robb, never heard the Krank before. I know you recently got yours, is it in the same vein as the dsl?

I've also been looking at the jet city 50w head, it's just hard to get past how ugly they are.

I'm an idiot and didn't read the title...if you want a head go for the GH50L or VH100R.

Yeah similar to the DSL, it has the whole Hotrod Marshall thing going on. The Cleans are surprisingly good on it also with headroom if you need it.

I think the 1980Jr is really similar to the Splawn QR that I tried . The FX loop is pretty good also and also doubles as a boost if you don't use the loop.

I play in a Prog-metal band and we do a few Mastadon/ASG type songs so I know the 1980 does those just fine. I use my DSL100 for live shows, but I have thought about trying the Krank out live (I have it on 6 for the volume at practice and it is plenty loud).

No prob, just wondering. I like what I can find out about the Laneys, not to mention Mikael A. plays Laneys, or at least used to, I know they have been using some Blackstar of lately. However, once shipping and tax are involved I am well over where I want to be.

The Krank really seems to have that JCM 800 feel to it. I like it, and its cheaper than the Marshall.

Yeah I tried the new DSL15 head and the 1980 is way better. And the 1980 Jr is made in the USA and $375. I got super lucky when I bought mine because they are rare used, and then the other day there was the JR and a full sized 1980.

Another cool thing is Krank list the 1980 as having 3 12ax7 preamp tubes. It also has a 12ax7 PI and a 12ax7 tube buffered FX loop, so really 5 12ax7s. It also gets its 20 watts from 2 6L6 tubes, so you get the tone of the big bottle amps which 99% of small amps are lacking

I'm still on the fence. I like the idea of the Krank being cheaper and a scaled down JCM 800 with a clean channel. It is right around the wattage that would work best for me. However, knowing how I am, I hate to admit it but the name brand gets me. Something about the way a Marshall sounds, it is hard to replicate, but maybe that's just me.

After searching GC they have a GH100 for $450, and a GH50 for $450 with no back plate, and another GH50 for $599. Kind of confusing why so many amps are missing back plates. In your opinion does the GH50 get ridiculously loud too quick? I think that 50w might be too much.

It is your money and you need to make the call, but the Krank 1980 Jr is an excellent option you should keep in mind

Well your version of loud and my version of loud are two different things. But I'm able to keep up with a band, or play at 9 pm while my family is watching primetime TV. Granted the tone is slightly different, but both are great. It can do low volume...yes.

I am pretty close to puling the trigger on the Laney. Only reason for picking that over the Krank is the fact that I am planning on buying a PRS soon, thus completing my Opeth obsession. I will need to buy a reverb pedal either way due to lack of verb on all of the amps mentioned. I think that the Laney is slightly more versatile than the Krank, but I have been wrong once or twice before.

The Laney GH is a really good amp, I'd say really the only thing the Krank has on it is a foot switchable clean channel. If you don't need a dedicated clean, even I'd get the Laney.

The Krank is great if you want HR Marshall tone in a low watt space saver. but it certainly does not sound like a little amp

No the GH 50/100/100ti are 1 ch amps they have a foot switchable boost, but only 1 channel.

The Laney VH100r is the 2 ch version of the GH

Got it, thanks for that info. I don't need a clean channel, but it is nice to have one nonetheless. From what I have observed the Laney can clean up fairly well. Correct?

The Gh cleans up pretty nice with the guitar volume, just don't crank the gain on it.
If you could find a GH100TI, those are absolutely awesome amps

I set the gain on the GH50L around 3 and use either a boost, fuzz or other dirt pedal or even sometimes the built in boost. Gain on 3, low input has some nice broken up cleans.

Have you considered the Tweaker 40? It's a little expensive, but super versatile. My other guitarist has the Tweaker 88 and it will do everything from extreme metal to bluesy-jazz to classic rock type sounds. It's really not a very "Marshall" sounding amp, though. If that's what you're looking for.

I actually was going to get an Egnater Rebel 30, but the amp that I bought was not the one that was advertised, which they called prior to shipping. I like the Tweaker amps, but they remind me too much of the Blackstar combo that I had. They can do a little bit of everything, but do not do anything really well. I was on the verge of getting a dc-3 (mesa), but was unimpressed by the dc-10, probably was user error. I really hate buying amps blind, but a lot of places nearby only carry your run of the mill amps. Nothing too spectacular, a lot of solid state amps, and occasionally a decent amp head, but I do not need 100 watts, and I'm not looking to spend $1000. I know that 100 watt heads can be dialed in to sound decent at low volumes, but they will still be lacking.

I have been looking into the Orange dual terror and the Laney is still in play. I like the idea of the two channels on the dual terror. I know it can do sludge metal, but what about Opeth-ish metal. I like the varying wattage of the amp. Any users that have experience with the dual terror and can give insight I would appreciate it.

I'd look into the VH100r if you want two channels. Pretty sure you can just pull 2 tubes and run it at 50 watts if you're desperate for low volume situations. My GH50L has some big ****ing transformers. Helps it retain the beef.

If you want a small amp get the krank 1980jr, it will take the Orange terror series to the cleaners and back. If you want a full sized head, the laney GH/VH is the way to go.

My buddy has a Tiny terror and a Dual terror, he wants a 1980 now that he has played mine. If you want a good low power british tone The Krank or the OR15 would do you fine.

I appreciate all he help thus far. I was looking at the laney ironheart, being a 3 channel amp and having some cleans as well, any info? I am liking the Krank the more I watch and read on it.

The Krank is a much higher quality amp. They're virtually indestructible. Whereas the ironheart is a new amp built in China with a much lower QC.

Good to know, but this is going to be used at home. I am not planning on taking the amp out too much, nor do I plan on throwing it. But reliability is a valid concern.

I am going to extend my budget, but I am going to look at buying new and see what options are out there. I am still on the fence it the Krank. Not because I don't like it, but I know myself and feel that I would eventually want a different amp. I'm trying to get something that will stick. My budget going new will probably be up to about $1000, only reason is paying off in increments. Any ideas?

Diamond amps has the Assassin which is a 18 watt 1 ch hi-gain head and it is under your budget new.

EVH 5150 II mini is $1000 new and can do pretty much everything and it even has a headphone out.

The Orange TH30 can be had for $800ish new. www.humbuckermusic.com has them for $860ish and Musicians Friend will price match them and give you an extra 10% off if you ask them.

Mesa Mini Recto is $1000 new

I don't think a 50 watt setting will really sound any quieter (at least you won't notice any difference at bedroom levels). I tried a Vox AC30HW that had 15/30 watt switch and both sounded pretty much equally loud at the same settings. There was a slight difference but not really that huge. It wouldn't make your bedroom tones any better.

I remember when I had my JCM 2000 DSL, I could make it sound pretty good at bedroom levels. Then I bought an attenuator and it sounded better. When looking new, I am primarily doing so because many sites offer the pay as you play option, which is nice. Rarely do I have $1000 just laying around.

EDIT: forgot to mention, thanks for all the help thus far. I may seem on the fence, just because this is a big decision and I want this amp to last for a while.

So I just pulled the trigger on an Orange TH30, used price match thanks to Robb, and they took additional off, plus free shipping. I'll post a NAD soon. Thanks everyone for all the help.
