So im looking at a new amp for metal and rock..
e.g. metallica, trivium, pantera, COB, Led zeppelin, AC/DC and all different types of rock and metal..
at the moment i have a spider II 30watt and i hate it...
so im looking at getting a

Laney Vc15-110

And a..

Electro Harmonix Metal Muff
http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/metal-muff/69674
Total Price = £279

i will be using it for home practice and rarely for an odd jam..
i was wondering if this would give me good cleans and good distortion..
tell me what you think and im open to suggestions mainly for the pedal, but also for the amp

thanks

Although that's a nice setup it isn't metal and rock material.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

It'd satisfy your Zep and AC/DC desires on just the amp alone. Along with the metal muff you'd prolly get the gain. Bust as i've said before it doesn't really have the voicing for metal. But it looks like your not really after some screaming death metal. So I don't see why you couldn't make it work. It's a versatile amp.

Sounds good to me.

yea that looks good. altho, for Zepp u ccould almos get a perfect sound of theirs by buying a Build Your Own Clone Fuzz pedal. Its a replica of the pedal Page used. AC/DC seems like straigght overdrive, which the amp should be able to handle. Metallica has a rly bassy overdrive sound, the pedal should work for that. Trivium would take a little more than a Metal Muff, but u ccould do that w/ the pedal. So id say ur good with those two.

It's not really a metally OD, to work from, to vintage and fuzzy. Youd be better off with using a sperate OD alltogether. Such as the metal muff.

Try a blues boss pedal

I used to have a Boss MT-2 and I liked it. It's versatile, giving you sounds from rock, hard rock to metal. If you learn to use the settings it sounds pretty good.

Some people may say it's bad because there may be some better pedals out there, but that doesn't make it bad, that's how it is for every pedal.

If anything you can get it modded to sound even better.

In all honesty I don't think there's many pedals worse than the metal zone, including the no-name cheapies....however for what it costs it's an outrage.
