OKay I am in dire need of an amp. I want a good one for price between 500-700. I've been playing for about 3 years and play mostly thrash metal like megadeth, testament, etc. A nice scooped out bass sound is important to me, but what i really want is a great sustaining lead tone for playing phat solos and sweeps, kinda like Dream Theater or Marty Friedman. I play a strat with a hot rails in the bridge. Much appreciated
Maybe a second hand peavey 5150 or 6505 combo. If not just get the valveking, its pretty decent, but the van halen models (5150 or the new 6505) or much better for what you're after.
