I've been looking around for a versatile head & cab combo..
Let's just have Opeth as an example, basicly I'm looking for an amp which can go from full out high gain death metal to sparkly cleans, beautiful tones and crisp accoustic sounds - like Opeth.
I found the Laney GH50L, I also believe it's the head that Opeth use themselves.
So basicly, will it handle my needs? Would I need an OD pedal?
Bands I like to play: Opeth, Arch Enemy, Children of Bodom, Emperor, Lamb of God, Metallica, Old Man's Child

Opinions pleaseeeeeee.

I believe opeth use boss gt units into the effects return of there laneys.
Tunes, gear and other random stuff can be found in my "UG" profile if you click my name

You may need an Od pedal to cover some of the stuff... But it should do Opeth fine, considering they used the Laney on Ghost Reveries.

Considering you're based in Scotland, I recommed using GAK educational website if you're a student, they sell everything with a bit of a discount, you have to discuss with them. I'f you're not a student then they wont let you buy from there unless you're a teacher.

EDIT: Considering you're exactly 1 day older then me, you're most likely gonna be able to get the discount. Say you're doing a music course and you need it for school

No problem, man...

Well if he's a teacher it's good enough. I was slightly pissed about that new site though, just opened up a month after getting my new amp for about £50 more than it is now >.<

Take a look at some of the Mesa Boogie's... HUGE discounts on them. Yet they are way too expensive anyway
