I'm considering buying a new amp sometime soon. Right now I've got a 30 cube practice amp (which is actually very good!) I like to play hardcore and metal, as well as softer stuff, hendrix, van halen, etc. So I want to be able to get a mean distortion sound, as well as cleans and a warm, mid, high gain sound would be great too. I'm aiming for something with more than 100W. Will 100 be enough for bands and gigs btw? Or should I save up and get 150-200?

Anyway, I've been looking around and this is what I came up with:

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Randall-RH150DG3-G3-Series-Guitar-Amp-Head?sku=480338

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Randall-RG100G3-G3-Series-Guitar-Combo-Amp-?sku=480336

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Randall-RX120DHS-120W-Half-Stack-Guitar-Amp-with-4x12-Cabinet?sku=481269


Are Randall and Vox any good? I'm afraid that the randall will have great distort tones, but I won't be able to get cleans or less distorted sounds out of it. And I'm afraid that the vox will have loads of sounds I like, but not a mean distorted sound..

If you have heard either amp, feedback would be welcome. Also, if you know of another amp that would be good, just lemme know.
Not only would it disrupt the fabric of time and space, but it would totally ruin the surprise!

actually the clean tones for Randall has good street cred believe it or not. However, the Vox is pretty tempting as well, I own a Randall, im pretty happy with it for the price i got for it (randall G2 200 watt with quality celestion 100 speakers for $400). But i dont know what to recomend, all of those are good for metal!! But im sure that if you hook up any one of those with your Boss, its gonna sound awsome!!!

Does your randall have enough distortion on it's own for heavy stuff, or do you use a pedal?

You should try to get to a store a play a few first. You may find that you like something else once you play one. Then you can order online if the deal is better. Or tell the store you about the online price and they may match it. But get out and play and listen before buying.

Ofcourse, but I like to get as much feedback as possible before I head to it :P

Understood. I am a big fan of VOX amps. I have a small 15W Pathfinder and it's great. I have a 150W Valvetronix and it's great too. They make quality amps.

If you have some $$$ to spend check out the VOX AC30 Customs with Blue speakers. Simply Amazing!

Good Luck!
