Well I need a new amp and some suggestions. I play mostly metal and the amp has to have good cleans because I use them a lot. I'm currently using an Ltd Viper- 50. My setup is....

Viper~~>535Q Wah~~>MT-2~~>CE-5 Chorus~~>Marshall MG-15w/reverb

I also have an MG-10. Yesterday I plugged into the 10 and, that thing sounded like complete and utter crap. No matter how much I messed with the contour knob it sounded really crappy. This was my first amp so it wasn't that bad but now that i've gotten better at guitar and need a new amp. The MG-15 sounds slightly better, but of course it still sucks, and it sucks hard. It has the Bass, Contour, and Treble knobs which makes it easier to find a tone that wont make my ears bleed. I basically got the pedals to take my mind off the suckage of the MG. The wah I just use for guitar wankage or to play the cheesy porn music you hear which almost all the time is with a wah, the MT-2 so I wont have to use the amp's gay distortion (and yes distortion can really be homosexual ) then I just use the Chorus for cleans. I'm thinking of a Vox AD50VT. If I were to start a band just to jam would 50 watts be enough to be heard over somewhat loud drums?

By the way I won't be buying the amp anytime soon. So that means I got a lot of time to go play different amps. I just want to know what I want now, so I can start saving and get the amp around my b-day which is on November.

EDIT: And please no replies like this "LyK3 0mg!!111!1 lawl u facking n00b, y0u gotz @n MG lol!!!!11" I already know MG's suck

Those are tube amps right? Well right now I dont need something like that. I just need a good versatile amp that can get loud when needed. I dont want to buy like a really expensive amp because i'm not really that experienced yet. When I have like 2 or 3 years playing i'll get a tube amp for gigs and such. Right now I need one with good tone and that's loud enough to jam with a few ppl.

Well, Randall amps are usually good, and loud. And the price ain't that bad either. Only prob is that it's a SolidState amp, so you won't get that same warm clean you would with a tube amp, but with some adjustments and a good chorus pedal, you get a pretty descent clean sound (I have two of them myself). As for metal.. It's just perfect.
Also, try reading some of the reviews on this site (both on the Marshall, Randall and other amps)

I'll make sure to try those out. I have read just about every review on this site on pedals, amps, and everything. It's just hard to find an unbiased review. I've read all the amp threads too. But all the posts are like "loll $t@y aW@y fr0m da mg'z @nd spyD3rz cuz dey sucKz f@ck!nG nUtz lawl!!!!11"

A cube should suit you well. They're reasonably priced for what they are. 60 watts solid state, easily get over a drummer and would be heard in small-medium gigs, you can always mic it though.

Good clean amp models but the Cube's are best known for their Distortion. If you're playing mostly Metal, the Cube kicks ass in this price range.
- Gibson Les Paul Studio
- Squier Standard Strat
- Roland Cube 60
- Visual Sound Jekyll & Hyde
- Boss OD-3
- Behringer EQ700

I'll try it. I want to try every amp I can unlike when I was n00b and bought an MG. I really like the Vox though. At our graduation practice this kid played the national anthem followed by Eruption. His tone was awesome and he was using a Vox Valvetronix. I dont know if it was the 30 or 50 watt though. I'm gonna try it first though because most of that tone must have come from his LTD Alexi Laiho Signature.
