Ok i been playing guitar for about six years now.
Basically i love metal, play allot of metal.
My amp which i have right now is a randall, great for metal but that where the problem starts. All it can really do is metal.
Im looking for an all around amp that will still have a great metal sound but also able to tone is down a bit when i want it too.
The other problem i have with the randall is that the clean is horrible.

Basically im looking for a 50-100 watt tube amp.
The price at the moment im not really sure of. Try and keep it around the $400-500 price range. But if u got something a little more then that and think its worth it just mention it.
I'm planning on selling my randall or trading it in and paying some cash for a new amp depending on what leaves more money in my pocket.

this is kind the tone that im looking for-i have an esp ec-1000 guitar if anyone needs to know that.

id look at bugera amps. also the b-52 at212. you may have to look used. also, if you can stretch your budget a little, you might be able to find a used 5150. they are amazing for metal. the clean channel isnt great though. its decent, but not quite at the level of the bugera or b-52

i was thinking of the peavey 5150 and running a chorus pedal threw it or the boss acoustic simulator pedal. Which really does not sound like an acoustic but it does make the clean sound better.

Really?? Never would have guessed that... I mean you're avatar is Dime lol

I would look into some used Mesas. Try out as many different models as you can because they are all very versatile amps but they are each voiced a bit differently.

For that budget and request, hell yea. Actually I would hav said "used" Mesa's. But yes.

Edit: Dumbass award, you DID say used... I won't delete, I will own up... Kudos.

You sir are retarded.

But I'd say, try the Valveking. They're pretty good for metal.

definitely look into a mesa mark III. it can get so many different sounds. to me, it can do all kinds of metal, but sometimes sounds like its missing just a little bit or something. i run an overdrive with the gain all the way down and it just puts that little extra something into the sound that i need. but dont think it NEEDS the overdrive to get heavy, its got buttloads of gain.
