Hey guys, just picked up an ESP LTD 100QM with custom Duncans for the PUPS. Looking to upgrade my VIP 3 Vypry 100 watt modeling amp to something with a more "pure sound". I played on a friends Crate Flexwave 2 x 12 combo and thought it sounded pretty nifty. Anyways, guitar center has an AVT 150 for around $220 and I was wondering if any of you guys have experience with this amp. Im looking to probably spend about 200-300 on a used amp. I play mostly classic rock and Metallica type stuff. Wattage isnt overly important as I more so play for myself because I enjoy it, not to write and tour the world kind of deal. So the most Id be playing with is another guitarist or bassist. Thanks guys!

No.

Probably not a great call, won't be an upgrade on your Peavey, might even sound worse.

I'd be looking at;

- Peavey classic or ultra series,
- Jet city 20 and 50 watters,
- Marshall DSL401 (preferably not the new DSL),
- Perhaps Laney's VC and LC series,
- Some of the Traynor YCV series (40 and 50 watters),

it's better than the avt. i'm not sure it's amazing, though (and I haven't tried the newer version).
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Has anyone used the MicroTerror? Ive seen some reviews and it seems perfect for a bedroom-jamming type of amp

The old JCM2000 DSL401 is a great little amp, miles ahead of an AVT.
The Micro Terror is a bit meh. The bigger Terrors are good though, take a look at the Dual Terror.
Have a look at Jet City too.
Peavey Classic 30 may satisfy you as well.
