Alright, I play a lot of metal, but I have a good pedal that can run my metal tones (EH Metal Muff), and I want an amp that can give me some good cleans so I can play some more bluesier stuff. Versatility is the word pretty much, and I don't really want to spend way too much as of yet ($1000+)

Fender, no. Marshall, maybe if you crank and use a boost (talkin' 'bout the older models)

And don't use your Metal Muff as a distortion, use the amp's distortion, buy an amp made for gain.

Fender make the best clean sounding amps ever and are great to run pedals through.

How about a VOX AC30, not exactly built for metal, but they have more overdrive than a fender, and your pedal should help. They also have great cleans, it seems to me like the best compromise you can get.

Ah, and I also forgot the final requisite I need on this amp.

It has to have the power to get louder than a drumset without crapping out and is capable of gigging.

If you want an amp for metal, get an amp made for metal. One like that will sound a lot better than a clean amp overdriven by a metal muff.

And you can get loaaaads of high gain amps with great cleans.

ENGLs, Mesas, Laneys, then all higher end boutique stuff. Loads more aswell, I'm just not too knowledgable on higher gain stuff.

framus supposedly have great cleans too, I haven't tried them though.

that's getting up into big $$$ though.

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.

Well an ENGL Screamer is a great idea. Great Fendery cleans, nice Marshally crunch and great high gain!

A Laney GH100L(or GH50L) is very similar to a JCM 800 with more gain. They can also have some pretty good cleans coaxed out of them.

Id say find a used Triple Rectifier Combo or mybe the head if your willing to buy a cab. Mayb try this http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Peavey-Triple-XXX-Super-40-40W-1x12-Guitar-Combo?sku=481393 . Im not too knowledgable on the XXX but ive heard goo dthings about it and considering its been recomended to every metalhead on this forum asking for an amp......



I wouldn't consider either of those for versatility, to be honest. engl and many other amps will do the metal thing + versatility a lot better, in my opinion.

^ the XXX has really nice cleans (for a budget high gain amp) imo. deffinatley lack luster next to my fender, but i dont' have a problem with them. especialy with a little delay/modulation.
