I have a 5150 at the mo but i think i want to get something more versatile, which has a) liquid gain metal sounds b) good classic marshall style classic rock tones c)bell like clean tones. Im in europe so i can afford mesa etc.

Laney VH100R sounds perfect for what you want. Great cleans, gorgeous crunch and very organic, heavy metal tones.

it seems a bit tinny?. also is it not more of a classic tone rather than modern metal?

^correct imo at least. Personally I would go for a powerball - awesome liquidy/glassy high gain. great crunch, and amazing cleans to boot.

i think he meant "can't".

engl would be worth a look. koch too. framus, probably, though i haven't tried those.

really up to you, basically... you probably won't get anything which will do all those tones you want perfectly, and you need to try them to see which amp's voicing you like the best, and also which of the tones you'd be more willing to compromise on.

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.

Then go for framus heads, they have nice cleans and even better distortion qualities.

yep, if you want classic tone too, you'd be well advised to try the blackmore and (if you can afford it) savage or invader (i haven't tried the invader, and have only tried the savage se, not the savage).

well i could get the laney or orange tiny terror and the 5150 and just have a stereo cab. i think the laney voicing is very bright and shimmering, but im actually quite happy with the 5150 clean (you need to learn how to dial it in) I would like to run metal and crunch sounds together like adam jones of tool

Mesa Boogie Express anyone?
My brother in law had one and it did EVERYTHING.


Express series doesn't have enough gain for metal, at all. I don't see how Mesa can replace the F series with them, the F series was so much more versatile (imo), the only cool thing about the Express series is the ability to switch it to 5 watts.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

I'm one of those players who likes beefy tones, think James Hetfield on the Master of Puppets album. It's just my personal preference, someone else might think that tone is amazing.
