I'm looking for suggestions on small metal sounding amps.
I have a couple criteria:
- both a clean and a dirty channel (WITH A SOLO BOOST)
- 12" SPEAKER
- amp < 50W, or switchable
- 6L6 power tubes (for some reason, I like them better than the EL84's)
The absolute top of my budget is $1500, with lesser being better.
I have to admit, I'm sort of leaning towards a ENGL gigmaster & cab, OR a Mesa 5:50+. Any other ideas would be appreciated, since I don't want to miss any. For instance, does anyone in here play a Rivera and have a good recording of it?

Looking to purchase a device to use my guitar with, while in Texas for 3 months. I have a MacBook pro with GarageBand '11 (?).
Basically I want to use my setup as an amplifier while living in a hotel room. I was thinking this is a good opportunity to spring for an apogee, since I keep hearing how awesome they are. I also don't want to waste cash for a device I'll only use temporarily. I can alway use this device later to score when the time comes.
I do have a concern with GarageBand though. When using the mic input, the amp models sound HORRIBLE! (terrible amount of noise, and just bland tone - the built in mic sounds about the same, to give you a reference). Will the apogee remedy this? Will it make the amp models actually feasible to use?
Also, how do pedals sound when running into these things? Or are they meant strictly for pickup signals?
Thanks to anyone who can give me insight. Im done university in 2 months, then leave for Texas for the next 3 - my poor guitar will start fooling around with other players if I don't take it with me to fondle while im gone. Lol

I was checking out the RG4570, and I noticed they have some really nice volume/tone knobs. Does anyone know where I could pick them up? I tried searching eBay, jemsite, & ibanezrules with no luck.
I would like to buy 3 for both my Ibanez's, RG2550 & the evil RG2610. I just think they would be a fairly cheap upgrade to make them look a bit nicer.

Hey guys & gals,
Just letting everyone (or anyone interested) know that I'm selling my Ibanez Prestige RG2550E-GK on eBay. There used to be a forum section to post gear for sale, but I can't seem to find it.
Anyways, check it out if your interested. Item#: 130619520031.
I'll give a little deal to my pals here at GMC, especially for a younger player.

I have a Chihuahua named Bowser, like Mario's Enemy. He's 6 now.
Real small, but thinks he's tough. He will even give rotty's attitude (I know because my gf's sister has one).
