I need an amp to go with my Jackson SL2H. I'm into rock/metal mostly, but want to be able to play some blues/funk if necessary. I also have the metal-muff distortion pedal if that makes any difference. I guess I'm just looking for an amp that will make my guitar shine.

Note: I'm playing indoors so I would need a practice amp of some kind, but still want my guitar to sound excellent (I heard that a lot of times guitars don't really shine until they are played extremely loud, but I can't do that where I am).

Thanks.

bugera amps ( one of the xl ones or whatever they re called), used 5150s, used mesa (need to get lucky), used marshall jcm800/jcm900 with booster pedal.

bugera some people say suffer from cheap parts...i have no experience WHATSOEVER with them except with beringer amps which should sent to be broken down and sold for plastic

as for getting used stuff its always best to look locally too as some people are just plain stupid when they sell their gear i got a jcm900 for 400 euros with new-ish jj tubes!

so look used i d say and look for something with a good amount of gain and dont be afraid to try a booster pedal over the distortion channel to tighten stuff up

Thats the stupidest thing i've heard all day.. It really doesnt matter other than the fact that the combo will be cost effective and portable.

Bugera 333xl
Used Peavey XXX combo
Used Peavey Ultra
Used Mesa Rectoverb
Peavey Classic 30 w/ an overdrive (works for me!)

I don't know what the difference between stack and combo is lol.

Combo has the amp and speaker in one cabinet while a stack means the amp and speaker are in separate enclosures.

Do you intend to play out?

If not, I'd recommend a nice 15-30 watt tube combo, like a Tiny Terror or Peavey Classic 30.

A-hah! A tube amp with low wattage, excellent. I'll go for that carpepax, thank you

+1 on the peavey xxx combo!

Classic 30 won't work for you, 90% sure

Rectoverb are nice too but i don't know about the price

save up $300 more and walk away with a Mesa Boogie Mark IV, or up another $1000 for a Splawn Nitro

Nice joke...
but if it wasn't damn you're slow for an '05er

THE MG HAS CRUSHING OVERDRIVE!


But the triple x should work for you
The reason the c30 with a drive pedal works for me is becuase I have JJ tubes and i'm putting a hi-gain drive infront of the lead channel with the preamp gain at 10 and the mids slightly scooped

Yeah, you should definitely look into an mg if you want CRUSHING overdrive..
