hey UG,
well i want a new amp. i want to go tube. i have about $1000 dollars.
i play fusion and shred. i listen to guthrie govan,greg howe, allen hinds,petrucci(LTE days) little bit of vai and satch, paul gilbert. i want a amp with amazing cleans(for the fusion tone) and a amazing overdrive(for my shred). i've tried the peavey classic 30 i didn't like it the overdrive wasn't for me and there a was fan that runs in the amp so i can't really record with it with out that making a racket. i was thinking a fender deville but im not sure if i can get a good shred tone on that amp with a pedal or 2. i was also thinking a V3 but no dealers sell carvin here in toronto. it doesnt matter if it is a head or combo(i would prefer a combo) any help would be great.
thanks

for a grand he can do alot better than a valve king.

A Mesa F-30 or F-50 should do you fine for the types of tone you are looking for.

Wow, I think this was the 3rd time tonight that I just suggested a Mesa.
#6
i cant find a f-30 or 50 for sale near were i live(toronto) also a friend of mine has the f-50 and i only like it for rythem on the OD channel

Get the F-50 and a jazz chorus then.
They dont sell f-30's and 50's new anymore. YOU MIGHT HAVE TO....
I know this might be hard....


WAIT FOR ONE TO SHOW UP USED.

Same with a V3. You don't need to buy the damned thing TODAY man.

i know you tried a bunch of peaveys, but did you try the jsx? its got a good clean channel that stays clean even at high volumes, and the overdrive is great for leads.

id also look at maybe a used marshall plexi or jcm 800. a lot of shredders use those amps. putting a nice overdrive in front of one to boost it a little would give you all the gain you need.

carvin is supposed to be very good if you order direct from them

if you really want the v3, you should do it if you dont want to wait for a used one

get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.

+1 JSX

I have a Mesa Boogie express 5:25 Perfect for everything except for metal it needs a boost or OD. Try steves downtown they have some awesome stuff. Long and Macquade as well. Songbird maybe for a used pedal.
