looking at buying the combo, all i've heard is good things about it but will it fit my playing style? (metal/hardcore)

if not, what combo amp in the same price range should I look at?

Boss TU-3
EHX Metal Muff
Digitech Grunge, DF-7

A lot of people love them here and claim they could do what you need, but I played one once and was not impressed. It sounded really muddy and somewhat harsh, but I really think I might have just played a bad one or it had bad tubes or something. I'd say (as with any amp) try it out first and see what you think. If you don't like it I'd suggest looking at a recto-verb combo, I just bought one and it sounds amazing.

Music can't really be judged, since it's all on the same level. Unless it's screamo. then it sucks.

That's very odd, the F series is the complete opposite (imo). Compared to a 5150 which has a very harsh tone, the F series are more liquidy, smooth and defined sounding. The F-50 should be great for what you play, I actually prefer the F-30 though, for some reason I like the sound the EL-34s give me over the 6L6s in the F-50, but both are awesome amps. They also have pretty amazing cleans, all in all, hands down, it's probably the best amp you can get for the money.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

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

i thought the opposite, rofl. EDIT: to matrixclaw.

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.

If you scoop the mids they do sound muddy, but still liquidy. When scooped you really lose definition.

Cut the bass way back, and use the mids as you would a bass adjustment.

Gah, that's what prevents me from buying a Mesa F: mixed opinions and no availability (to try it out).
