ive basically got
a Laney LC30 212 valve combo amp
Ibanez Sa (going to get steve special pickups dimarzio)
Zakk wylde overdrive MXR
Mt-2

and im told a laney "vox ripoff" isnt going to help me with my tone at all?
i havent tried my laney out much as its being ordered, but i liked it when i was playing it, havent tried it with the mt-2 thou or the zakk, also laneys are supposedly "shit" because they break down heaps?

should i get another pedal or wat? cancel my laybye? im really into powermetal and want something similiar to its tone,
thanks

Angra
Helloween
Gamma Ray
Rhapsody (!!!!!!!)
Symphony x

etc, and dream theater thou they arent really power
and i dont want that really old school powermetal like Virgin steele or Primal Fear, want something abit more melodic like edguy or freedom call

hope that makes sense dude

How much is the Layney? A lot of Power Metal bands use Engl amps. Might want to look into those if you're not satisfied with your Laney.

Laneys are excellent for the price, at least in the UK. What the guy told you about them sucking and breaking lots, is b.s., so don't listen to that. However, if you're looking to play power metal, Laney LC is probably not the best choice for you seeing how it's built to create vintage blues/classic rock tones - unless you don't mind always driving it with your pedal.
