      5150 III 50 watt.



      I just picked one up, can do just about anything/everything there is out there--clean, crunchy, catastrophically driven. Okay, it isn't truly a 3 channel amp with 1 & 2 sharing settings, but keep the gain up on that channel and roll the volume back on your guitar for the clean tones and BAM, it is pretty much a 3 channel amp.



      Yeah it is a little more, but you deserve and you are worth it DAMNIT after all you do! You deserve to treat yourself!

                  Peavey Classic 30 or 50. I have the 50 head, love that amp. Seriously amazing. Can't speak much for the 30, but the 50 can really do just about anything you could ask minus going into death metal or loud stoner rock territory.



                  Has great blues to rock tones, and awesome cleanes. The vyper is also a cool amp, but none of us would try to talk you out of getting new one, cause that's just cool. Knowing what I know now, if I were in your shoes, I'd go PV Classic series. They come in 4x10's, 1x12's, 2x12's, heads... Not sure if they have a 15" version. I've heard of a lot of amazing results with a 2x12 with a speaker swap. I'd bet the originals are also great though.
                  I do not accept any liability for anything said in the above post.


                  For your reference, what I'm mostly using right now:
                  Laney VH100R
                  Titan "Cerberus" (sorta)
                  Mesa 4x12, homegrown 6x12 (v30/g12h30)

                      I stopped by my local GC and they had a used Egnator Tweaker at an already great price, that after trade-ins made it an unbelievable price.



                      So, I've got a new amp!
