Hey guys, just wondering on your opinions for what my next amp purchase should be..

Ive got an ESP AX400 with a set of 81 active pickups run through a Marshall MG.

The Marshall's my problem..im looking for an amp that has an almost warm clean tone but can also have a really high toned distortion channel, with the MG it's really hard to hear over other amp distortions.
I play metal from slayer/arch enemy/metallica to really dark black metal like immortal/marduk/dimmu..

Any suggestions..?

Check out ENGL, Marshall JCM800/900, Mesa Boogie etc.

EDIT: Oh, I didn't notice it was australian dollars
EDIT: A Crate V33 with overdrive would be good, if you want a good modelling amp check out the Line 6 Flextone

for the gain tone i was wanting something thats really aggressive and "in your face"..i love the heavy palmuting aswell..
#16
Try bugera, allans music sell one of the models for $1100. I havnt tried them personally but I've heard good things and you wont do much better in Australia for that price.
#17
ok in your face helps but could you like compare it to any ones elses tone do you want it fats and thick or chainsaw-ish
