Which one should I get (and why)? Or if anyone knows which amp has problems, etc...

Vox AD100VT (€499) + footswitch Vox VFS2 (€45)

Marshall AVT100 (€637)

Fender FM212R (€339) incl. footswitch

All are 100 watt, the vox has pre-amp tube (the Valve Reactor thingy) but no full tube, the rest are normal solid states.

I play blues (BB King, SRV,...), rock 'n roll (Chuck Berry,...), normal modern rock (muse,...), old skool rock (led zeppelin, AC/DC,...), metal (megadeth, metallica, zakk wylde, slayer, pantera,...)

Thats quite a variety so it needs to be a versatile amp with nice cleans and good overdrive.

the vox would be your best bet (wont do metal too well though), but! do you really need 100w? you could get a great lower watt tube amp for the budget

will you be gigging? and how far can you stretch your budget?

I still need to save most of the money, the budget would run to about €700

it's for rehearsal and gigging (small venues)

Probably best not to get a 100w... You could try a lower wattage tube amp, like a Laney LC50 or a VC50.

But if you insist on getting a 100w then go for the vox.

^yea, the lc30 (more suited for modern tones) might even do metal with a pedal...and definitely will be loud enough for gigs...

Don't get the DSL401 because it won't do any of those metal tones you're after.

But I agree 100 watts is too much, better off with less watts and a tube amp.

Get a used VC50 - you can pick them up for £260 ish - and get a overdrive pedal to push it to heavier stuff. Paul Gilbert uses a stock VC50.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.
