Meh, not really. More of a classic rock amp. But then again, classic rock and blues tones are similar. It has enough gain to get AC/DC and Black Sabbath on it's own. You're not playing anything super heavy anyway. (from what you listed).

The traynor and valveking are both solid choices. I've got a demo of teh valveking in my profile if your interested, otherwise do some research before investing in anything. Youtube and the like have some great videos of both amps.

Though it's a good modeling solid-state amp, at this budget, you can afford better like the Traynor or Peavey.

mmm wich one should i get the traynor or the peavey? wich one you recommend the most?
#13
Frankly, I think the Traynor would work well for Metallica more than the Classic, but YOU should go out and try them out and as any other amps in your price-range (and maybe a few above).
#17
i vote traynor, preferably the 50blue, but if you can't find them used, then the callsic 30 is probably your best bet.

if you can't find a Traynor look into the Valveking combos as they can handle lots of styles of music on a budget.

imo

u love those valveking heh lol. well i dont blame you, the only reason i didnt buy one is because i got a free decent amp wich allows me to save my money to buy a multi effects board
#19

Mesa Boogie F-50 and you won't look back for those music, unless you need more gain if you style change then Mark IV is needed (they go around 1k).

you should save up another 1 grand and get a marshall jcm800 or jcm900 halfstack




Why a halfstack?
Plus, TS said he had a budget for 600 bucks. I doubt he's going to be keen on the idea to wait so much longer to get something with a low tone:price ratio like one of those Marshalls (IMO, no offense. they're good amps, they just have bad ratios to tone and price).

I'd go with the Traynor that people are recommending. Peavey classics are great amps, but the Traynor has more convincing crunch.

If you can find one. I have been looking around to try one, and still haven't even seen one. The way people talk about them, though, they seem great.

It would work.

Honestly though, whoever suggested an F-50 is dead on. THe f-30s and f-50s go for about 500 on ebay and they are very versatile great sounding amps.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

is the randall rg50 any good?
its 560 $


it's very much aimed at metal. for what you want to play, i think either a traynor ycv or classic 30 would be a better option.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
