First excuse my english pleas, which is not good.

I want to buy a new amp for playing metal guitar.
Can someone recommend me a amp with a powerfull, clear tone, good for metal guitar with 15 watt power?
My influences are Metallica, Trivium, Bullett for my Valentine, Black Label Society and some more.

The first amp that i saw was the marshall MG15DFX, but i dont know how it sounds.
Can someone help me?

That amp is terrible for the price, and especially for metal.

I would check out the Roland Cube series, they are great modeling amps.

don't bother getting that amp my friend. i think you want the Roland Cube 15 watter. very nice modeling amp and does great for high gain like you're wanting.

what is ur budget? there MAY be something better for ur budget, but not much if there is at all.

but always steer clear of Marshall MGs and Spiders.

now that i think of it, what amp do you use now and how long have you been playing? if ur upgrading, you might want to look to something a little louder/better. no sense in upgrading from quiet practice amp to slightly louder practice amp, unless you know you'll never jam w/ a friend.

The MG has terrible tone and is massively overpriced. Try a Roland Cube, but don't buy any amp until you try it to see if you like the tone and stuff.

I know I am going to get alot of people who probably disagree, but the Crate GTD65 isn't bad. It has great clean tones, and the high gain channel is awesome. It has good features. The only thing that is with it is you can get a classic rock tone at best out of the plain overdrive channel, but I don't really use the regular overdrive channel a lot. However, I agree with everyone else on here. The MGs are way overpriced and I have yet to find one I like a lot.

Honestly, I would take a 15 watt spider for practice over an MG any day.

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.

Im getting rid of my Mg and I'm getting a Spider 15, so I have to agree, the MG is a piece of horse ****, and the spider is a decent amp for $99.

Yeah, it really is a good low watt practice amp. I would never use it to gig, but for 100 bucks for some monkeying around in your living room, or playing on the go. I think that the only spider that should be legally allowed to be marked is the 15 watt. Every other spider is an oversize version that costs too much.

Exactly.

thanks for helping, i think i buy the cube^^
i need that amp, which is extremely comfortable, only for jamming with my band
later i will buy a 100 watt power machine^^
can someone recommend me a amp with that power?
#15
You don't really need 100 watts unless you plan on playing stadiums, and even then, people like Tom Morello use 50 watters. A Valveking is a pretty good amp for metal IMO
#16
^i think the valveking would be good with an OD.
but the b-52 AT Series is better for metal and just as versatile.
i think they are dropping in price too.
if you can save up $300, then youre set.
60 watt tube will be plenty loud.

Power machines are bad.
You'll never need more than 50 watts.
50 watts of tube power is hearing damage at half volume.

+1 to the B-52 AT combo, those things sound amazing for the price.
