I can pick one of these up quite cheaply. (£230)

I want an all round good amp.
gorgeous cleans up to hi gain metallica/panetera

Ive also been looking at VC15/LC15 and ibanez valbee and maybe windsor studio

Would the fallen angel be the best option?
how is it at bedroom volumes?
ive heard steven seagulls clips and they seem good


cheers dudes

this would be only for bedroom playing though, thought i better add.

I dont plan on gigging.

It sounds fine at bedroom levels, if you can get it that quiet! You'd likely have the master volume somewhere beween 0.5 and 0.8 for that mind...
Actually called Mark!

Well you could pull two power tubes out and make it 20 watts for home
or get a smaller (5 watt maybe) amp and a distortion

Eg. Crate Palomino<Metal Muff<Guitar

so this is the best option for the £200-300 price range?

i already have a bad monkey overdrive pedal

and am gonna start a few pedal builds soon.

would it be worth investing in a weber attenuator?
to get better lower volumes and tone?

cheers

Considering you already have an overdrive pedal, I don't see much point in getting an attenuator
#8
Agreed - the attenuator would just be a waste of money...the pedal will be fine for adding extra gain at low volumes.

^^ Are you positive it's safe to pull valves? I've heard horror stories.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

You will need to Bias the amp again if you do this. The bias test point is shared by all 4 tubes. Bias it as you would a DSL201 (Bias Info.) Now that you have removed two of the tubes you have double the primary impedence seen by the output transformer and have thrown off the values listed on the back of the amp- you have now doubled them two. You will need to set the impedence to half of the value of your speakers impedence in order to set things right again. Just a fun little note: I went about 6 months before realizing that I hadn't rebiased my amp after pulling two of the tubes. I had each tube running 50mA of current!! They sounded great!! I was surprised that the tubes didn't melt down though...


As long as you that it should be great

Can you actually get it down to bedroom levels?

I just got back from trying one in cardiff

and really liked it.

Couldnt test just how quite it could go due to it being a noisy shop.

Think this may be the amp for me
