Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier, head/cab, 3 channels, all tube.
Super loud amp, great for metal, way more powerful than anything I need, since I am no longer in a band or performing in front of people.

I'd recommend looking into something like a Crate combo, they are relatively inexpensive and get a wide variety of sounds. Just a suggestion.

yeah my bandmate plays a 100W 2x12" solid state Crate amp.. A great amp with a thick, heavy distortion and an extremely good delay.

I play through a Laney 1x12" 65W "Tube enabled" amp. Great amp ;]- cheap too.

I play through a Peavey ValveKing 112. It's a 50W 1x12 tube amp. I like the warm tones you get from the tubes, has some distortiong as well.

I've got a Hughes & Kettner Switchblade 100W. It's got four channels - clean/crunch/lead and ultra. i can dial in anything from vintage to the most modern metal tones.
It's gota MIDI foot switch and 128 program places for preset sounds, don't get fooled by that, it's all valves.
I use it for modern sounds.

In the other band we play rock and there I use a Peavey Classic 30 and it's great for that sound.

Okay everyone,
I don't really like heavy metal as much as I do .....ummm well 80s rock
I liked the Peavy King though
What should I do.Oh yea! I don't really like heavy distortion. I like to be able to play fast without getting too much action from the neck of the guitar.

For the money you can't beat the Roland Microcube for practice or the Roland Cube 60 for practice or maybe even small gigs.

The Microcube is $125 and the most unbelievable little amp you will ever use and the Cube 60 is a compact 60 watt amp with nice effects and a punchy sound.

Check out www.rolandus.com

The Microcube has lots of effect and amp models for $125 and the Cube 60 is $345.

I am almost tempted to sell all my Digitech pedals as the Roland's built in amp midels and distortion sound so good.

Most likely I will sell my Marshall, Gorilla, and maybe even my Digitech pedals as I love how simple the Roland Cubes make things.

Line 6 Spider IIIs are cool also if you get the 75w or bigger ones, but I think the Rolands sound better.

Sadly since me my mom and sister are moving and need the rest of the money from my guitar that was $300. I was going to get my old gutiar back for a $100 and then get maybe an amp but now I can only get my gutiar back and I'm right back where I started a mont ago. sad.gif

I have a Vox AD30VT and I love it. It has 11 amp settings and 11 effects. All are pretty good except the auto wah effect it sounds horrible. I haven't had a problem getting the sound I want for whatever I choose to play whether it be Led Zeppelin or RATM. Now I don't play live or anything just in the spare room of the house so can't speak about how it would be in a gig but I think it would be fine.

I'm going to have to chime in with rokchik. I have the Vox ad30vt also, and its great. I have a very nice clean dialed in, and a little chorous/rev dialed in for the effect, and a nice mesa-ish metal distortion dialed on my other channel. It has awsome voxy overdrive channels, and is easy to change a channel setting once you know how. For $240 its a steal =).
