Ok. I want a new amp. Yep. BUT I can't find any sound bytes or whatever on the Ashdown amp and no music stores nearby sell em.. And on some gear they don't even allow trying it out D: I want a tube amp. And I have abudget of £400.. Maybe up to £500. I play stuff like Trivium, Metallica, In Flames, Pantera.... I would also like fairly decent cleans. Oh yeah, I forgot... I can't buy off of eBay cos credit card fraud was done against us last time we bought form there so my parents dont trust it T-T


HELP ME!

A 5150/6505 can get a good Pantera tone, but nothin will get you closer than a Randall Warhead, I ****ing love that amp!
As I see the ignorance of humanity engulfing reason and sanity like a wave of perpetual defeat and misery I ask myself, when the hell is everyone going to shut up and actually think?

^It's gonna go up in price, duh.

For that music I'll suggest either a Peavey 5150 or XXX, a Marshall JCM900 combo or a Marshall TSL combo.

Sorry to say dude...but no way. Its probably like the first day of that auction. And you probably dont want a Triple Recto.

Used XXX is the way to go!

Here it is

Started 3 days ago. 1 day 13 hours left. Selling cos no room for it in apartment... And half of the suggestions that have been here already are like stupidly over the price that I said... Peavey 5150 combo = £1100 XXX = £900... It gets worse =/

Just wait and see bro lol in the last 5 minutes of the auction it will jump up another 1-2 grand. Even if it did sell for 200...I wouldnt do it. No pics or proof that its what he says it is...

^Yup, it looks dodgy, no pics, and he hasn't actually described the amp, just copy and pasted a load of specs from somewhere.

Yeah I thought about it and thought the same thing... But it says "email me for pics" so I'm gonna tell him to get a piece of paper write his username on it and take a picture of him standing next to the amp :P Or maybe do a vid of it playing and him in it.

And plus... He became a member to sell that item cos he registered on the same day if you look properly :P

If you re looking at an amp you want but doesnt give the exact sound try experimenting with different pedal.

i still say XXX. pantera/trivium are brighter tones for the most part. and the XXX is a brighter more agressive amp. i dk, instincts say you're an XXX guy.
