Hello, recebtly I bought an Epiphone 1958 Korina Flying V. I've really liked that guitar so far, I've used it on several amplifiers: my little 15 watt Yamaha GA 15 which I bought a year ago is now not enough for me, a Blackstar (forgot the model but one of the high quality ones) and a Marshall DSL 40C. After seeing better amps the sound I get just sounds bad to me.
i play variety of genres sometimes metal sometimes rock sometimes blues. So I need a good amp for variety of genres, featuring a good distortion and goes well with my guitar.

aside from budget and location what exactly do you find lacking in the amps you have? what type of tones are you looking for? need a little more precise info to help

I can't get any thing like what I want in mine, it really has a limited range. And the sound it gives sound like garbage. I want a high gain sound for metal and a melodic overdrive for blues.

if you can't get a reasonable blues tone from that Marshall then you're not doing something right. do you have an overdrive pedal? once again you should be able to get a metal tone from the Marshall and push it with an overdrive. what's your idea of a metal tone though? you really need to start being more specific as what you've said so far isn't much help.

you got me wrong I have tried it in Marshall and I liked the tone but that amp is in my school. I forgot the say I didnt have it in my house. Im looking for an amp to use in my house. I have that Yamaha in my house not Marshall. I can get what I want in that Marshall, I want something alike but dont have the money for it so lesser models may do.

His amp is Yamaha 15w SS, not Marshall.


OP Bugera V55 would be a good choice.

I like DSL401's for the money, they can do quite a bit and are pretty good at blues blues/rock and metal with a boost.

With your budget I would look into jet city.

Jet City with a DigiTech bad monkey should be able to get you everything from your cleans to your brutal metal tone.
Fender MIM Strat HSS (DiMarzio Crunch Lab)
Peavey 6505+ 112

If you want, I can mix/master your tracks for free just so I can practice and who knows, maybe you'll love what you hear! Hit me up.

Valveking all the way. Super super cheap very reliable, though heavy as a collapsed sun. Beautiful cleans with spring reverb and with the right tubes a pretty heavy crunch channel
My main axe is made from the crucifix, strung with barbed wire, and tuned to z standard then i use a boss metal zone, gain 10, into a line 6, bass 10, mid 0, treble 10, this is the only way to be truly brootal

If you like the DSL40C, with your guitar, you should consider buying one. Those are nice tube amps and rated at 40W it should be loud enough for a band situation. For a cleaner sounding amp, a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe has more bass due to the 6L6 tubes and the HRD has a spring reverb instead of a digital reverb. The distortion channel of the HRD is not as good though.

I would recommend the Fender for a lot of clean and an occasional distored tone and the Marshall for a general distorted tone and occasional clean tunes.

I'd never use or recommend one for anything over 80's hardrock/alternative.

many better suited amps at his price point
