Im in search for an amp that would suit my style. I dont know every amps out there hence the reason im asking for ideas of amp. I mainly play metal for example : Lamb of god, Metallica, Slayer, Gojira, Amon Amarth, Cradle of filth, Children of boddom and the list goes on.. I would still like to have good clean on the amp. Im currently thinking about the EVH iii 50 watts, im still unsure if i wanna 100% go with it since theres lot of amps out there. My pricing range would be anything under 2k. Thank you

A friend of mine has an EVH 5150 III 50 watt. It is a really good amp, but one thing I will say is that there can be a volume disparity between the blue channel and green channel, which can be a problem, especially if you are playing in a band situation. There is a mod that you can have done to it, though.

Yes thats what i heard too, the 100 watt doesnt have this problem though but its too expensive for me

will-189 ..... new they just slightly over your budget ....... used is for sure in your territory ...... Mesa don't care who bought it first , 5 year warranty regardless if your third owner .... I got my MK V for 1500.00 with all the case candy , papers , shipping box and 2 years left on the warranty ..... and there are a plenty even cheaper than mine

Will , the guy I got my MK V from bought a Mesa MK V 25 after he sold me the V ..... so there's another option Mk V 35 or 25 could be a nice choice and is in your budget new ..... Mesa's hold there value pretty good too in case you ever decide to sell it
