Wich amp would be the best option:
-Mesa Boogie Lonestar

-Fender Twin Reverb or Basman
Since i spending a lot of money a really nedd your help!!!!!!!

I wanna say a Mark IV. They are great for most all styles. God plays Mesas...

The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

I play a 50 watt solo recto and it's killer! You can get just about any tone you want out of it,from crystal cleans to extreme low-end saturated distoration.I've never met anybody that was disapointed with their Mesa.

Well I know the Foo use Roadkings, so that would be your best bet. So maybe one of them or a Roadster. Mark IV will be your next best bet. If not, check out an F-50. I get great Foo tones out of mine.

Price range would be my first question. Second, how many watts do you want? Without knowing, I can't be of too much help, but see about a Mesa DC series; they're relatively inexpensive and kick major ass.

i hear those rectoverbs aren't the best. but i just read the reviews over a HC, so i don't know what i'm talking about.
but if you go used i see them around the $1000 range.

Yea, the Lonestar's really nice, but it's not exactly an uber-heavy sounding amp.

Also, you interested in a head/cab, or a combo configuration? I still say the DC series (the DC-5 or DC-10), and you can nab the combo versions on ebay for under 1 grand.

The Mark IV is great, and I am in the process of purchasing a rect-o-verb. I don't know where that one guy thought the rect-o-verb wasn't good, but he was mistaken. It sounds fantastic.

for what you play i would actually recommend the stiletto ace. an amazing amp that encapsulates the signature marshall roar with the mesa attitude. perfect for the bands you listed. if your willing to look outside mesa, the vox ac30 would be a great choice to and you would be way under your $1500 price limit.

Are you just playing at home? 5 watts. Are you playing in a bar? 20 watts. Are you playing in a huge club? 20 watts, 'cause any self-respecting club will have a good PA system for you to plug into.

Just my 2 cents.

Not bumping old threads is a good idea.
