well thats it and im thinking of getting one - for £160 u cant really go wrong but what do u guys think of it.

im a bedroom player at the moment so i cant have anything too loud (yeah i know valves but still)

so i want something that i can crank to get the tube dist but also use pedals (OD'd, delay, chours, wah) with. would this be a good choise over say the small epiphone 5watter (not the head version) i dont play anything like death metal but there is some metal (or numetal whatever man its not up for discution) like

metallica , seether, muse feeder, rammstein, alien ant farm, lacuna coil, linken park, VR, bullit for my valentine

remember its cheap and its valves - i want to keep it under £190 and after hat pedals are separate - was gonna go for a DSL401 but there 40 watts.

anyway opinions please

Just because the marshall is 40 watts doesnt mean you cant turn down the volume, any valve amp can be ran at low volumes ... alot of people presume they can only be played loud. Also - If you were going for the DSL, why not? If you can save up for that then do, the dsl is in a totally different world the the laney.

It will pi** all over the Epi junior, quite a nice little amp, though I did find the OD a little bit 'scratchy' when I tried one.

The Laney isn't really built for metal, I've tried one. But if you've tried it and you're sure save up a bit for the LC15R, it is a lot more versatile with an FX loop, speaker out and reverb.

its a very nice amp for classic rock tones. good bedroom amp!
for metal though, you will need to drive it hard.
theyre very nice little amps, again, great for a guitarist wanting small package and price

I've heard they're great, try one out tho and see, I doubt it'll do metal without a big push.

if you can go to £190, you might want to look into the one with reverb...

if you can get to £250, you might want to check out the vc15...

if you can get to £600 you might want to check out a cornford harlequin...

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.
