Hey,

I'm currently looking into buying a new amplfier and the ashdown fallen angel (40 watt model) has caught my attention. I play heavy music, stuff like trivium, all that remains, but id also like to be able to pull off a nice clean and a shred tone. I have a ME-50, which i could use to boost the distortion, but i dont have a single pedle OD or DS.

What does this amp sound like? its roughly 470 bux, so im wondering just how long is this gonna last me? I have no previous experience with tube amps, and just how loud is 40 watts tube? enough for a gig?

ehh, they sound HOT! But 40w is kinda low for gigging, that is unless you mic it. But idk.....how much are you planning on spending?

40 watts plenty loud.

Usually tubes last a good year if you threat them right, i.e let them warm up for 2 minutes before you play, just turn on stand-by and wait!! like if your taking a 10 minute break you just pop it on stand-by and leave it.. your tubes will adore you!

I would recomend a single pedal like a Ts maybe. Its cleans are alright, its would be simular to the Marshall DSL in which trivium use. so yeah I think it would suit you grand. sure any other questions just ask!!

My bassist has a 300 watt Ashdown, sounds pretty decent in my opinion. I was hoping he'd get an Ampeg, but he doesn't like them for some ungodly reason

Still excellent amps though, that Clayton dude from U2 uses them.

Made a few mistakes in this post haha. BTW this is what he uses.
