I play all types of styles except death metal. I am a really warm analog type of player but I also like to shred once and a while or play heavy slow rhythms kind of like audioslave. Any oppinions which would be the best bang for the buck between the new Fender 100w pro tube Twin (switchable from 100 to 25w), Fender Twin Reverb, Mesa Express 5:50, or the Mesa Lonestar.

what kind of money are you talking?

I tried a budda a while back and that might do what you want... thd flexi 50 might also be worth considering... you have a bunch of options, basically...

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.

ok, i think the flexi is over...

budda might be just within budget for one of their combos, but you'd need to check. would be worth looking into at any rate.

are you close to rocksolidamps in florida? i know they have some excellent amps which might be worth a try.

as Dave said, Buddas very nice.

check out a Twinmaster, theres one on TGP for like a grand. Those amps are meant to have a large amount of gain but clean up wonderfully with the volume knob.

its 18 watts i believe though, so if your set on some insanely loud amp, look away. Even though it is a loud 18 watts.

The Mesa F series has Mesa's best cleans from an amp that will do metal. Very warm, much thicker than Fender cleans, and a lot of headroom.

Lonestars have Mesa's best cleans, but, they don't go to metal. They have great OD's to them, which is probably even better than the cleans. either way, if you're thinking of spending over $1000-$1500 on an amp, you should definatly test it out first.

And don't forget the ever popular Mark IV.


Those do have great cleans but I still find the F series has the best cleans other than the lonestar that Mesa offers. You'd really be surprised how good their cheapest amp sounds clean.

The lonestar is 1699 so its gonna be over your price limit. From my experience with it though it is an astounding amp, the cleans rival anything fender is putting out today easily. It sounds like the best choice for you with maybe a good od or distortion for your metal needs. then youll be set.

I just bought a Lonestar 212 combo. I should have it by tuesday. Can't wait.

Also Andy Timmons is having a clinic in one of our local stores here in jax. I will picking his brain about the lonestar since it is one of his main amps. Thanks for all of your inputs.

Are those excellent amps worth a 3 hour trip? (actually 5 for TS, Jacksonille is in the north)

i guess it depends how cheap public transport/fuel is, and how much time you have.
