i know theres probably a million threads like this but here goes:

ok right now i have a fender princeton 65 dsp. i play a les paul studio and usually use a boss mt-2 pedal for my distortion. i play a lot of metallica and rock and metal. i was wondering what you guys would recommend for my setup here. its gotta sound good clean too. my price range is somewhere around 300 - 400 dollars, maybe a little more.

TIA

Not an MG.

If you can spare a little more change then go for a tube amp.

is the $400 after you sell your current amp and pedal or would be willing to do that and add that in?

where do you live?
home or gig?


might be able to get some money for the amp but not sure how much itd be worth. im in the us. and gig i guess

I personally dont like this amp, it sounds a little digital to me, but its not to bad for the price.

the 50 watt is cheaper then the 33watt version, its on sale.
But personally i have not tried these but i have heard some good things. But you should consider getting a nice OD pedal instead of that dist pedal.

but if your willing to go used, you do have a few more options

what city dude?

personally i don't think the valveking sounds digital at all but not a bad amp for $400. Def loud enough to gig with. Those Crates are a great steal. Real hard to beat right now in your price range unless you are willing to go used (ie Craigslist.org)...hence, what city.

yes ditch the disti pedal and get an Overdrive pedal

what other kind of metal besides metallica?

atlanta

i play a lot of older rock and metal like iron maiden, acdc, megadeth, but then i also like to play stuff like rhcp so its gotta be kinda versatile

georgia? hah i'm going to ga tech here in atl. Nice big city with a good nice sized craigslist. You can sometimes find a steal on.

As for an OD. a badmonkey, or a tubescreamer are usually peoples first suggestions. And keep in mind and 18watt tube amp will sound as loud as a 35-40 watt solid state... ROUGHLY...

uumm...dude. There is tons of stuff around you. Atlanta is big music town. I only went back 2 days and found this stuff. Go back a few weeks or a month and you may find someone who is really wanting to sell. I see a lot of Marshall MGs too but don't buy that.

Anyway, it is worth a look. You will get A LOT more value for your money.
