hi,
i want an amp which is mainly focused around hard rock, but i want it also to be able to do a really awesome blues/srv tone, and also with the help of a pedal or 2....it could play some metal

it cant be too big, cos it would mainly be played in just me bedroom, but i would like it loud enough to be heard over a drummer and maybe small gigs if i ever got the chance.

i want this amp to be an amp which would last me sometime so my price range is going to be about £1000 ($2000)

i live in england by the way.

to give an example of artists, stevie ray vaughan (essential) led zepplin, pink floyd, guns n roses, foo fighters, ac/dc, and then maybe some system of a down , rage against the machine and metallica

i will use pedals and my guitar is a les paul but im probably going to get a strat sometime.

thanks very much,

I think the only mesa that would give blues is a lonestar, but i cant comment on how close to stevie ray that gets. with your budget maybe two amps and A/B them?

You probably want to be looking at Cornford , although with a grand you can pretty much pick and choose and get anything you want.

The Harlequin is a low wattage amp specifically designed for home and studio use.

what about the mesa boogie express???


From what I've heard, so take this with a pinch of salt;
Apparently the weaker of the Mesa range, and the gain can't go too high. Probably a good thing - might suit you well, so you may need a pedal or two.

Poor value in the UK compared to what else is out there.

With that budget you will have a ton of amps to choose from. Get down to your guitar store and start trying some out.
